Isaiah House is a donor-funded 501(c)3 non-profit that exists to provide comprehensive, evidence-based treatment for individuals with substance use disorder by instilling H.O.P.E: healing, opportunity, purpose, education, and employment for lifelong success.
As a faith-based comprehensive treatment program, Isaiah House strives to address every area of clients’ lives that impacts their ability to maintain sobriety for a lifetime. We focus on providing people in recovery with hope, opportunity, purpose, and employment. Clients benefit from behavioral health counseling, peer support, spiritual guidance, job training and education, transitional housing, and other vital support services.
As a dedicated nonprofit, we are committed to making a lasting impact. We work closely with statewide economic development policymakers to champion initiatives that address workforce participation rates and the challenges associated with substance use disorder. Our collaborations include sponsoring initiatives like the Fair Chance Academy and the Kentucky Chamber’s Recovery in the Workplace Conference.
Established in 1999, Isaiah House was originally founded in Central Kentucky as a Christian ministry for homeless men who had been recently released from incarceration. It evolved into a nonprofit addiction treatment program in response to many of its residents struggling with substance use disorders. In 2002, the program moved from a residential home to a donated 92-bed facility in Willisburg, KY.
In 2010, Isaiah House achieved state licensure as an Alcohol and Other Drug Entity and began accepting clients with Medicaid and private insurance. Licensure as a Behavioral Health Service Organization followed, making it possible to treat individuals who are dually diagnosed with both substance use and mental health disorders.
With a more reliable source of revenue, Isaiah House was able to expand services for men and women and now operates seven residential treatment facilities, three outpatient clinics, and numerous sober living homes.
In 2022, Isaiah House provided treatment for residents of 115 of Kentucky’s 120 counties with over 3,600 admissions. Approximately 90% of clients have incomes less than 138% of the federal poverty level with about 50% homeless with no income by the time they arrive for treatment.
Isaiah House is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), and many of its recovery housing units are certified by the National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR).
