Just for your info, House of Gilead ran by Rev. Kelly is a bunch of lies and deceit. Please try to find another place to go if you can.This is not a true rehab. It is a place to live if thats what you are wanting. But trust me you will sign papers saying you will hand over your paycheck and he will be at the front door waiting when you get paid. This seems so illegal and unfair. It needs to be investigated. He will take advantage of you in every way possible.

Someone needs to be notified I have so much info, but dont know who to turn too to talk to. House of Gilead is in Louisville, KY and is not state funded. Your money is what pays the bills. Not just your rent money but your entire 40 hours or more of work, he has you to sign that over to him. Thats a NO NO! Anyone have any information please post and let me know who to contact. He is a convicted felon and a recovered (???) drug addict himself!!!!

There is a good entrance right outside of Olive Hill in an area known as "devil's backbone" on Ben's Run Road. It is public property and I don't think you would need any permission.

Can anyone provide information on river access to Tygart Creek at/near Rt 60 and I64 in Olive Hill, KY. I am plannning a canoe trip from this point to Carter Caves State Park in late April. My map indicates that there may be a small (dirt?) road at the intersection of Rt 182 Cecil Rd and Rt 60. Is this an accessable road that I can use to get to Tygart Creek? Do I need permission to access this road? Are there any hotels in the area?

I have a friend who is in jail and he used to be in House of Gilead, and wants to be paroled there. Email me all your info so I can persuade him otherwise. Where do you recommend he go? How do I contact Rev. Kelly?

That is true. However, an adult must be willing to sign themselves into a treatment program. I wonder how many of them would be.
I to am worried about this problem.Irecently had a friend die of a drug overdose .He was just a month shy of turning 30 . he`d been drinking and using drugs since a small child. I think that if he had not been recieving SSI to pay for his monthly drug rampages he might still be alive today.The Checks helped him slowly kill himself and make the local torch ridge deelers richer. During his funeral they sold or delivered drugs as usual.I tkink If the goverment is going to keep the drunks and drug addicts going Rehab shouldnt be an option for them it should be mandatory!MOST OF THESR PEOPLE ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS AS THE COURTS KNOW.I KNOW A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE I`m refering to .It`S SAD BUT THESE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE EVERY TOOTH IN THERE MOUTH PULLED JUST TO GET PAIN PILLS TO USE OR SELL TO OUR LOCAL DRUG DEALERS TO GET CRACK COCAIN

so you think if not for his SSI check, he would be alive? i hope i misunderstood you. addicts will find a way to pay for their drugs, be it a monthly check, stealing, bumming, pawning everything they own, or abusing the charity of well-intentioned friends and relatives.

No he probally still would have got the drugs it just wouldn`t have been so easy accesible.I just believe intervention should be easily available to people in a situation like his. this man had his teeth pulled on a regular basic just to get high. when he was in his school years he was a really sweet and caring individule

Yes i think you are right. give them a check, and a doctor to give them pills, is like giving a baby a bag of candy. dont believe that nothing will help these people but prison. at least its helping my cousin, which while she sitting in prison, i wonder if she likes drugs now, but shes were she needs to be.

<quoted text>I agree that we do coddle these people, who never take responsibility for their actions. But to just throw them in jail for a couple of months is not going to get them off the drugs. My understanding is that there are more opportunities to secure drugs in jail than there are on the outside. There has to be some type of balance between punishment and treatment.
I guess the taxpayers money is going to waste on Bugs big salary!

Drug/Alcohol addiction is a disease. Yes, it can go into remission. Untreated it is just as deadly as any other life threatening disease. The devastation of addiction leaves a wake that far surpasses the user. Their are many victims. Yes, people need to be responsible for their actions, however they also need treatment to put the addiction in remission. A combination of natural consequences, and treatment is very powerful. The number of treatment facilities are inadequate to meet the need. Many addicts don't get treatment because the cost is prohibitive. Outpatient treaatment is not enough. Most need residential treatment, and then outpatient follow up from a facility. It is more cost effective to treat the addiction than pay to keep someone incarcerated, or to pay for the damage the addict creates. A program is much needed in this area. This type of facility would also create much needed jobs in our area.
I Agree It could Help
