This week, I was privileged to visit The Healing Place in Louisville, and got to listen to some incredibly difficult, heartbreaking, and inspiring stories from women who were taking their first steps in recovery. The mission of The Healing Place is to reach individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, provide the tools for recovery, and restore meaningful and productive lives.
Every day, The Healing Place provides food, shelter, clothing, and recovery services to nearly 1,000 individuals at no cost, yet the program saves 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. In addition, 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.
