  • Construction to Begin on Men's Campus Expansion

    (LOUISVILLE, KY) -- The Healing Place, Louisville’s nationally recognized addiction recovery center, announced on December 13th that it will be expanding its Men’s Campus at 1020 West Market Street in downtown Louisville. The approved construction plans will double the number of beds in the detox facility and add nearly 200 beds to the long-term recovery program in order to help address the community’s growing substance abuse challenges.

    “This is not about a building,” said Karyn Hascal, President of The Healing Place during a press conference. “It is about delivering hope to the men and women in every ZIP code, of every religion, of every race, and from all walks of life. It is about providing a solution to an issue that affects our entire community.”

    The Healing Place current serves 700 men and women daily who are struggling in the fight against drug and alcohol addiction. Services are provided at no cost to the client. Today, however, The Healing Place is having to turn away an average of 300 men from detox every month because of a lack of beds.

    “The Louisville Metro Council is proud to help champion the fight for sobriety in the Bluegrass,” said Metro Council President David Yates during the press conference. “It’s not about politics. Today, this community made an investment in its future. The Metro Council is proud to help champion the fight for recovery and support organizations like The Healing Place”

    The $29 million project will take 24 months to complete. Construction is scheduled to begin by the end of the year. The Healing Place will be able to operate at full capacity during construction with the additional detox beds being available in approximately one year, after the completion of Phase One of the project. The James Graham Brown Foundation provided the lead gift of $1.5 million. The Louisville Metro Council approved $1.12 million for the expansion, with the Kentucky Office for Substance Abuse Policy in Frankfort contributing $500,000.

    The Healing Place has approximately $8 million left to raise over the next two years. More information about the project can be found online at www.thehealingplace.org/expansion.

  • New Donation Guidelines for In-Kind Items

    The Healing Place recently made some changes to our policy of accepting in-kind donations. We are now only accepting donations of men's and women's clothing, men's and women's shoes, personal hygiene items, and AA Big Books. These items can be dropped off at either campus on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 8am until 8pm.

    We have also made it easier to donate some items that we always need and that have to be new: pillows and socks. If you wish to donate one of these items (or a Big Book), you can shop via our Amazon Wish List and these items will be shipped directly to The Healing Place.

    We are thankful for the generosity of our community in helping us help men and women suffering from addiction!
