Isaiah House, Kentucky’s community-focused nonprofit network of mental health and addiction recovery resources, proudly announced the opening of its Real Hope Behavioral Health Center in Hillview Tuesday, continuing the organization’s mission of offering help, hope and healing to the people of Kentucky.

Isaiah House is Kentucky’s largest non-profit addiction treatment organization, providing comprehensive, personalized evidence-based and spiritual services to individuals with substance use disorders (SUD) for more than 23 years. Isaiah House serves 3,500 clients each year at facilities throughout Kentucky.

Isaiah House’s first location in Bullitt County is the Commonwealth’s newest asset in the mental health crisis, comprised of medical professionals, faith leaders and recovery champions.

“I am so excited to welcome Isaiah House to the Jim Eadens Resource Center,” Hillview Mayor Jim Eadens said. “I have seen the resources they offer and I truly feel they are making strides against the drug epidemic our society is now plagued with.  Through their treatment program, I am hopeful to see lives saved and families changed.”

2,135 Kentucky residents died from a drug overdose in 2022, with 42 lives lost in Bullitt County and 505 lives lost in neighboring Jefferson County. The new Hillview Real Hope Behavioral Health Center will play a much-needed role in our statewide mission to save lives, restore families and improve communities.

“Our goal is to guide individuals toward a life of continued recovery, empowerment and renewed purpose,” Isaiah House CEO Nick Wren said. “We want to make sure everyone who comes through our doors has access to the tools they need to maintain a lifetime of sobriety, and opening our first facility in Bullitt County is an exciting step forward in our efforts to reach the entire Commonwealth.”

Isaiah House is led by experts in the field of addiction treatment with decades of medical and health care experience. Its new home in Hillview echoes a proven and evidence-based method of personalized addiction treatment, allowing clients to pursue recovery in an all-encompassing, engaging, caring and spiritual environment.

The new center in Hillview is a welcome mental health care and addiction recovery resource for Bullitt County communities and beyond with the capacity to serve people from across Kentucky, accepting Medicaid, commercial insurance, and self-pay. Since 1999, Isaiah House has helped thousands of men and women achieve recovery.
