Providing the Tools for Recovery

By: Shannon Gray, Program Manager

“Trust the Process.” This is a common phrase used in The Healing Place’s long-term residential program. Most people I talk with believe that our clients come to our program to stop using drugs. What separates our behavior modification program from others, is that our clients learn the tools to live life without drugs. The decision […]


How to Host an Alcohol-Free Derby Party

By: Marla Highbaugh, Director of Development and Communications

Derby is a fun time in Kentucky with big hats, fast horses, and garlands of lilies and roses. But with a lot of focus on alcohol, it can be a difficult time for those new in sobriety. While I am not in recovery, I know firsthand that It is possible to have a fun Derby […]


Races, Roses, and Recovery

By: Keith Farah, Transitional Care Manager

As a person who has lived most of his life in what most would consider a mecca of horse racing, it seems paradoxical that I have never had much interest in spending a day at the track or making an “educated” bet on which thoroughbred would outrun the pack.

Meaningful and Worth Doing

By: Jackie Brown, Men's Detox Monitor

The detox units at The Healing Place provide a safe place for those in our community who are addicted and need help in coming off of drugs and/or alcohol. For some, it is quite simply that – a safe environment in which to stabilize. For many others, including myself, our detox can be the new […]


Taking That First Step

By: Courtney Weisshaupt, Detox Manager

Detox is the first step a person takes when coming to The Healing Place. When someone wants to access detox services at the Men’s Campus or the Women’s Campus, all they have to do is walk through the front door. When a potential client comes into detox, they are greeted by a staff member who […]


A Safe Place to Stay

By: Stephanie Webb, Women's Overnight Monitor

The Healing Place is the house that built me. Having the opportunity to be a staff member in the same house where I was able to get sober has truly become one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. I am a monitor in the detox and overnight units at the women’s campus. I spend […]
