Freer Than I Have Ever Been

By: Brittany Harris, Alumni

My life began again on August 10th, 2016. There are no words for how lucky I am to be given such a meaningful day, and to be chosen to continue a life I was sure would end early. I thought I had discovered magic the first time I ever drank alcohol. It quickly took away […]

The Campbellsville Community

By: Matthew Wise, Campbellsville Site Director

The Healing Place of Campbellsville is a 100-bed facility that is designed to give those in rural Kentucky the opportunity to recover from addiction. The model and the spirit of Louisville’s program is replicated and downsized to fit the needs of a smaller community. Recovery can be described as a process in which someone has […]

A Place Like No Other

By: Alaina Combs, Women's Program Director

The Healing Place is such a special program. Many of our alumni, including myself, would say that the THP women’s campus is a place like no other. We are a long-term recovery program that focuses on behavior modification in a loving and caring environment. One thing that makes us different is that we have minimal […]

This prayer which I have repeated thousands of times never had more meaning to me than in this past year. God grant me the serenity to accept the […]

Jesse worked alongside The Healing Place well before it was The Healing Place. Of all his many endeavors and accomplishments, Jesse was most proud of his work with […]

Sharing My Story

By: Jay Davidson, Executive Chairman

I have often shared my experience, strength, and hope at 12 step meetings during my 38 years of sobriety. Many know some parts of my history, but few know the whole story. Miracle on Market is the first time I have put together a complete picture of who I truly am. When sharing my story, […]

Resiliency in Recovery

By: Karyn Hascal, President

As I reflect on this past year, which was one of the most challenging years in our 32-year history, the concept that comes to mind is resiliency. We often talk about the factors that are important to one to have in order to maintain long-term recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Resiliency is a concept […]
