Recovery Center to Benefit from State Grant

One of Kentucky’s first regional substance abuse treatment centers will benefit from a quarter million dollar grant.  The Trilogy Recovery Center for Women opened in the fall of 2008.  Recovery Kentucky is a program aimed at helping Kentuckians recover from substance abuse and prevent chronic homelessness by offering long term care housing centers.  The Hopkinsville Trilogy Recovery Center provides peer support, addiction counseling, health and daily living education, and job training.

  It’s one of ten Recovery Kentucky centers across the state.  Earlier this year, the University of Kentucky Center on Drug and Alcohol Research released a report.  It showed individuals who enroll in substance abuse programs at one of the recovery centers are more likely to abstain from drugs and less likely to spend time in jail.
