A catholic facility in Lancaster, Kentucky is on its way to becoming an addiction treatment center, according to the Associated Press.
Earlier this month, the Lexington diocese announced that it would lease its infrequently used Cliffview Retreat and Conference Center to the Catholic Action Center (CAC) to make it happen. CAC provides services for the homeless in the Lexington area.
At the end of the three-year lease, CAC will have the option to buy the property, according to the Catholic Telegraph, a monthly newspaper published by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
The new center will be called Divine Providence Way at Cliffview, according to CAC, and it will provide a “holistic, sustainable healing community for men and women who are suffering with drug and alcohol addiction.”
Divine Providence Way is located on 42 acres on a peninsula formed by Herrington Lake and the Dix River in Lancaster, south of Lexington. The program will be environmentally sustainable, while also offering recreational therapies, job training and educational opportunities, according to CAC.
CAC will “be in charge of developing a holistic environment” at the new center, while Mountain Comprehensive Care will spearhead the medical side of things, according to CAC.
Prestonsburg, Kentucky-based Mountain Comprehensive Care is a behavioral health provider with at least four locations. It provides mental health and addiction treatment services, in addition to other offerings.
Divine Providence Way is expected to start accepting participants in January.
