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 […]


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 […]

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

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 […]

The Kentucky Recovery Hall of Fame recognizes individuals in long-term recovery as well as those who have taken a leading role in addressing Kentucky’s addiction crisis through prevention, treatment, education, […]


Alumni Are The Healing Place

By: Doug Scott, Vice President of Mission Advancement

I am beyond excited that The Healing Place has started rolling back restrictions that were in place on our campuses due to the pandemic. With nearly 1,000 beds for people recovering from substance use disorder, our buildings are always busy. Lately, with our alumni back on property, the WHOLE SPIRIT of THP is alive and […]
