A Non-profit organization AKA charity... What continues to amaze me about Isaiah House is the charity they extend to those clients who otherwise could not afford treatment. The word "charity," is not without its own cultural baggage - images of dropping coins in red containers at Christmas time come to mind, but charity encompasses more than that. Charity means participating in tangible acts of loving-kindness toward all others. Or to put it simply, to practice charity is to be compassionate. Isaiah House exemplifies charity over and over with the men and families that interact with this facility. Isaiah House does not underestimate the grip that this disease holds on these men. They are given the full spectrum of care, which includes an understanding of imperfection and the nature of this disease. The people here are family, much like your own - they will never give up on your family member, as long as they are willing to continue trying.
My name is Anna. I work in the medical department and I have worked at Isaiah House for over 3 years now. When I first came to work at IH, I knew very little about addiction and treatment and I've learned much, but I'm still learning. Most of our clients have gone through multiple treatment facilities or outpatient programs, and by many of the clients own words, I've learned that I'm working for the only recovery center that helps each client address every aspect of their life. Many clients have expressed that when they've utilized every opportunity available to them at IH, they have had more success or the ability to succeed than has been possible through any other program. And that's because for those that are ready and willing, they are taught different skills and learn new ways to live without drugs and/or alcohol. There's a strong spirit of brotherhood at IH people become more like family here. I've been very blessed to get to know so many people and look forward to where IH is going and what's to come.
I highly recommend Isaiah House for you or your loved one who is suffering from addiction. Isaiah House is a faith-based organization that treats the whole person. Isaiah House offers clients an opportunity not only to work on their recovery through structured activities and clinical and peer support groups, but also to obtain gainful employment, which is critical to their success. There is also an opportunity to transition into Isaiah House sober living housing, before successfully transitioning back into the world at large.
Four people die every day in the state of Ky due to drug overdose! But the good news is there is real hope! Treatment does work and families are healed. I've been associated with IH since 2012 and have been very impressed with their holistic approach to treatment. It truly is a program of excellence and professionalism. Having been a pastor for 30 years, I have certainly appreciated the spiritual foundation upon which the programs are built. I can assure you that when you give to IH, your dollars count and lives are being saved as a result!
