Lydia’s House, a residential drug and alcohol treatment center for women, announced it is accepting new clients today. The sixteen (16) bed center will provide opioid detoxification, stabilization, and residential treatment services for women suffering from substance use disorders, and will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Lydia’s House is operated by Addiction Recovery Care, based in Louisa, Kentucky.
“Lydia's House will expand access for substance abuse treatment in Harlan County and surrounding Southeast Kentucky communities,” said Tim Robinson, CEO of Addiction Recovery Care.
“Harlan County has needed a place like Lydia’s House. We are looking forward to caring for women that are struggling with addiction, providing them with skills that will help them overcome their addiction,” said Stephanie Mosley, director of Lydia’s House.
“Addiction is a disease that has been battled in my own family and has undoubtedly impacted each family in our county and region, directly or indirectly. Addiction Recovery Care has a proven treatment model that is faith based and works. We welcome Lydia’s House to Harlan County and look forward to the many lives this program will positively benefit. In addition to positively impacting lives and returning productive citizens to society, the program has immediately created 12 new jobs in the process, and employed individuals who have successfully recovered to help others do the same,“ said Harlan County Judge Executive Dan Mosley.
Lydia's House is a Kentucky-licensed residential Alcohol or Other Drug Entity (AODE) and Behavioral Health Services Organization (BHSO) facility. Addiction Recovery Care currently operates five other residential substance abuse treatment facilities in Kentucky, three for men and two for women, and is nationally accredited for residential addiction treatment by CARF.
Lydia's House will provide clients with over twenty (20) hours of clinical programming weekly, with counseling provided by licensed counselors and peer support groups led by state-certified peer support specialists. State-certified case managers will work with each client to improve their recovery environment by addressing family, educational, housing, and vocational needs. Medical care will be provided at Lydia's House, with each client seeing a nurse practitioner weekly for their medical needs. Lydia's House’s medical staff is supervised by an American Board of Addiction Medicine certified physician.
Lydia's House is located on Maggard Street in Benham, Kentucky. Lydia’s House was built in the early 20th century as a boarding house for coal miners. Later, it became well known locally as a place that anyone in need could go to receive a home cooked meal from Granny Lee, who owned the house. It was purchased in 2007 from donations collected by Diane Durham, who had a calling from God to renovate it and provide a place to help broken and hurting women.
Addiction Recovery Care accepts Kentucky Medicaid plans, and interested potential clients with WellCare, Humana CareSource, Aetna Better Health for Kentucky, and Passport Health Plan coverage should call the intake team at (606) 638-0938.
