(Continued)

OCT. 2, 2013 —

Based on a thread posted to a Facebook page hosted by the citizens action group, Carter County Citizens for A Better Way, reactions were mixed.

Recovery Kentucky centers provide treatment at no cost to clients, who are referred into the program via a variety of means.

To qualify, clients must be at least 18 years of age, male and homeless or marginally housed with a history of addiction.

Clients must have no history of sexual misconduct or violent behavior or an uncontrolled mental illness. They must be able to physically participate in the program, be capable of living in a group environment and not have had any court dates within 30 days.

A typical Recovery Kentucky client resides in the facility for a period of nine to 12 months with a maximum stay of two years.

During that time, clients move through four phases of the program that incorporates a social model of recovery, peer support, accountability, daily living skills, job responsibilities and practical living experiences.

Up to 60 beds are reserved for clients referred through the Department of Corrections. According to Pathways, the facility is staffed full-time seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Clients are regularly drug tested and have a dress code, nightly curfew and are required to work at the facility, as well as attend classes and meetings.
