eagle - "you had your son there". If you have your hands full now, you had your hands full before he went there! I thought this was an adult facility?

I myself was a drug addict of drug addicts. I am not ashamed to say I went through the Isaiah House and it was a gift from God that saved my life. It only works for those that are willing to humble themselves and truly desire a change in their lives, that is key. Since graduating the Isaiah House I'm going on my third year clean, have a beautiful family, back in college, volunteer with numerous organizations,and not only now have my life back, but a life more abundantly.I recommended it for anyone who is sincere about real change.

From what i've heard, the staff are good people. Sometimes, after residents graduate, they are allowed to come back and work. Some do well, and some don't. Its no different than any other program... you have people that do well when they leave and some that go back to their old ways. I've heard nothing but great things about Isaiah House and the people who work there. I know someone who went there personally and he is doing great now. If you've heard any rumors, call and talk to the director. He's always been open, honest and so helpful.

The Isaiah House was the avenue in which God saved my life. At the age of 21 I had already been through two rehab programs, only to fall back into my lifestyle of addiction within a short time. It was through a pastor that I was given the info about the house, and with 32 felonies on my record, no feeling of hope for my future, and awaiting my trial in jail - I was allowed by the courts to go to the Isaiah House to try and turn my life around. This is a Christ-centered program, with real life applicable training, and a chance to put what you learn into practice. I completed the program, and then myself, worked as a case manager for over a year at the Isaiah House. The staff are made up of a diverse group ranging from ex-drug addicts, to a P.H.D counsler, to senior pastors, to graduates of the programs, and even volunteers from local churches or groups within the community. There have been a few incidents where in the staff have done less than admirable things, and there has even have been a couple severe occurences. But I assure you the leadership in place handled each incident swiftly, and to the severity needed in each matter. I can only speak for myself, but I feel that the staff at the Isaiah House were specifically hand picked by God for the position they are holding. The director is a man of truth, and integrity that is rare to find. A board member/volunteer/teacher there is one of the closest men to God that I have ever met, and is a walking example of love. And I could go on and on. These people make very small wages, work around the clock hours, and get very little recognition - but they are some of the sweetest, most God-fearing individuals you could ever meet. I am a full supporter of the Isaiah House and the work that they do.

My Prayers are certainly with the staff & volunteers on a very difficult job. As is with every program you have to be willing to be helped.
As we all know, drugs will always be a huge problem & we all need to be thankful for those that hang in there day after day working on something that will never be completely gone. If only a few are saved from this life style it is worth it.

I can only pray that my son is sent back to the Isaiah house ,he was there for almost 4 months, and I could see son my changing every time I spoke to him ,they really helped him so much .I feel like God sent him there , and Satan intervened ,and got him kicked out , now he is spiraling downhill fast. I am trying to work on Casey's law but his grandparent's wont work with me. Casey's law is where I can get a court order, if he is in harms way of himself or someone else. Please pray for him.

Hey Jen anything specific that you need answered from the staff or current residents or even former or graduates? We can get you contacted with
any of them.
I appreciate the comments by all.
This is a very needed ministry. Are doors are always open and anyone is welcome to sit in on a study or 12 step or board meeting held every 1st Thursday at 6:30 pm. As corey has said we have made mistakes along the way and are not perfect but we strive for that perfection and learn from every mistake.Unfortunatley addiction is not something you can read a book about and get all the wisdom and answers you need. Each person is different and each scituation different. Most times when the mental health system has given up on them we get them, many of our men have been thru multiple programs, many dual diagnosis and many physically, mentaly, emotionaly and or sexualy abused. It certainly is easy sometimes to see what we are doing wrong but what we need is solutions and help. Prayer, volunteers and financial help. I hope this helps.
Please continue to pray for us and the men and families we serve.

I live in Willisburg and I know they had problems with the men being out on the streets when they rented space to the R6 Program but since they left (several months ago) I have not seen the men out on the streets at all.

Not sure I can explain it. It was another recovery type group out of Louisville that just rented space from the Isaiah House but had a dif. format and less structure. They caused a lot of problems in Willisburg and gave Isaiah House a bad name. As far as I know, the has been very little trouble from the residents of Isaiah House.

R-6 was a reintergration program sponsored by the Baptist association of Louisville. They were to target men in prison 6mo to 1 year out from release and work with them thru the chaplaincy until thier release. At that time they were to be placed in the R-6 program. We worked with the R-6
leadership and were made specific promices about saftey, security and staff.They were a completly seperat program seperate Director, Staff and Board. In April we rented space to the program unfortunatley none of the promices were kept and we terminated the lease in August. I as the Director of the Isaiah House had asked my board for weeks before the town meeting for a termination based upon obvious and blatant disrgard for rules by the in place leadership of R-6. We have an alarm system in place for the whole building and they insisted on disarming it even to the point of disconecting it manualy in there area. We have had no incidents since they left unfortunatley we live with there legacy.
We do alarm the whole building at 6pm every night.
The men are in no way permited to roam the streets and if so they will be terminated from the program. We also do 4 head counts every day.
6:30am,noon,11pm and 3am. We also have a watchman(trustee)/volunteer from 11pm to 6:30pm on duty.
Staff is on the property 24/7. We are needing more volunteers so if anyone is willing and able we can use the help.

As a mother, I wanted a chance for my son to come to terms with his drug and alcohol addiction. This is not a place that you want your loved one to be at! The Isaiah House takes these men to Kentucky Football games, Nascar Races and Rock Concert Festivals to work. I do not understand how these men are expected to recover when they are taken to these kind of events where there is drugs and alcohol everywhere. This is supposed to be a Christian based organization. I don t understand! I would not recommend the Isaiah House to anyone who is needing to get help with addiction!

"Mom" these people need to learn how to handle life, most of those men have been there 3-4 months before they go to those events. My son went and learned how to practice what he learned from the program. Beciuase of those events he was able to gain confidence about who he is. It sounds like your son didnt practice what he learned and fell. That not the programs fault. Sounds like you just wanted him locked up, what good is that.
