Our Impact

An independent study conducted by the University of Kentucky Center on Drug and Alcohol Research finds that 75% of those who complete The Healing Place program remain sober one year after they finish. On average, clients take six to nine months to complete our program. That means 75% of those who complete have nearly two years of sobriety when the study is conducted. 75% of those who complete our program are now sober mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, friends, and employees.

Our clients and their families are not the only ones impacted by the work done by The Healing Place. We save Metro Louisville taxpayers more than $13 million every year in judicial and prison costs and more than $7 million every year in emergency room visits and other healthcare costs.

Our program has been proven to be effective. The Healing Place was recognized as a “Model That Works” by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. The Healing Place model has been replicated in 14 Recovery Kentucky sites across the Commonwealth as well as sites in Richmond, Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina.
