A Place to Start Anew
Addiction is a serious disease that requires focused intervention. KRFDC is committed to helping those suffering from alcohol and/or drug addiction.
Liberty Place Recovery Center for Women is a long-term substance abuse recovery program for women. This program provides support and hope for women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
This 108-bed residential substance abuse recovery center is centrally located on Lake Street in Richmond. Liberty Place works to restore opportunities to thousands of women by preparing them to lead sober, stable and productive lives. Services provided are free of charge to clients.
Liberty Place meets the needs of women in KY’s 6th Congressional District (Anderson, Bourbon, Boyle, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Franklin, Garrard, Jessamine, Lincoln, Madison, Mercer, Montgomery, Powell, Scott and Woodford counties).
As a transitional supportive housing development, Liberty Place uses a recovery program model that includes peer support, daily living skills training, job responsibilities and challenges to practice sober living. This unique type of supportive housing and recovery program is proven to help people who face the most complex challenges to live more stable, productive lives. It has been demonstrated successfully by The Hope Center in Lexington and The Healing Place in Louisville.
This project is a joint effort by the Kentucky Housing Corporation, the Governor’s Office for Local Development, the Department of Corrections, and the FHLBank of Cincinnati to build housing recovery centers across the state.
The Recovery Kentucky program emerged in response to the Governor’s Drug Summit Task Force’s assessment that recovery programs were essential if Kentucky was to address the escalating drug epidemic facing all regions of the state. The goal of the program is to have at least two centers in each congressional district. Half of the centers are for women and half for men. Residents must make the commitment to overcome their addictions, be over the age of 18 and be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless to participate.
Liberty Place is in constant need of women’s clothing, personal items and household items. Please see the agency’s wish list for a comprehensive list of these items. Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of many women.
