One of 11 Recovery Kentucky centers, Hickory Hill Recovery Center, located in Knott County, is a peer-driven, residential recovery facility for men over age 18 seeking recovery from alcohol & other drugs.
The goal of our program is to provide life-sustaining and life-rebuilding services to those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction by integrating a peer-to-peer, 12-steps, self-help model that offers the tools for recovery and restores productive lives.
Another goal is to reduce the isolation addicted persons feel from the community and from one another.
Designed to house 100 men, the facility consists of 68 efficiency apartments and two dormitory-style housing units. Referrals may come through the judicial system, social service systems, health care systems, and various other entities. Clients may be homeless, in fear of homelessness, or unable to return to their families.
Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Hickory Hills Recovery Center is managed by Kentucky River Community Care.
