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 […]


Changing Lives in Detox

By: LaTonya McNeal, Women's Detox/Overnight Supervisor

There’s no secret to the undying gratitude that I have for The Healing Place. I feel as though I’ve been set in my happy place – my forever home – every time I walk through the doors of detox to come to work. Every day is not always going to be a good day, no […]


In the Business of Change

We say the Serenity Prayer a lot around The Healing Place. This prayer closes practically every event on our campus, from staff meetings to 12 Step meetings. 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 […]


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 […]

My name is Brandon Thomas, and I am an alcoholic. I came to the Healing Place on June 30, 2020. Let me tell you a little bit about my life before I entered The Healing Place. I was brought up to be a respectful, hardworking man. I had a mom who loved me and wanted […]


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 […]


Outpatient Services

By: Debby Jones, Director of Outpatient Services

The Healing Place is known for its long-term residential recovery program and we have taken its success and created Recovery Louisville, an intensive outpatient program that also provides sober housing. Recovery Louisville provides services to individuals who have been referred directly from The Healing Place, or an outside referral source. Clients do not have to […]


Detox Loved Me to Life

By: Rosalind Jones, Alumni

I am Rosalind, an alcoholic. My sober date is December 29, 2010. I am an alumni of The Healing Place in good standing. I am writing this to say how grateful I am to The Healing Place for opening its doors to me. Thank you to the staff in the detox for receiving me with […]


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 […]
