ARC’s Crown Recovery Center opens to new clients

SPRINGFIELD, KY: Kentucky’s newest residential addiction treatment center and one of the most comprehensive in the United States is now accepting new clients.

In December 2018 Washington Facility and Land Company (WFLC) purchased and assumed the existing St. Catharine College campus, with the intent of leasing to Addiction Recovery Care (ARC). Since that time, ARC has worked diligently with WFLC to prepare the campus for client move in. In November 2020, ARC began moving in existing ARC clients, and is excited to expand services to new clients this week.


“ARC started as a vision to save lives from the chains of addiction across Appalachia. As we have grown, so has the need,” said ARC CEO and founder Tim Robinson. “Now we have the great opportunity to serve thousands, while continuing our focus of rescuing one life at a time.”

Crown Recovery Center (CRC), is a comprehensive, holistic program that provides detoxification, stabilization, and residential treatment services for individuals with substance use disorders. ARC focuses on treating the mind, soul, body and persons purpose during their time in the treatment program. ARC prides itself on its nationally recognized Crisis to Career model and believes that the key to meaningful recovery is to help clients discover their destiny and reenter the workforce. 

“Helping those in recovery find hope is key. It motivates people to engage and complete their treatment.  And it gives them a foundation to survive on without using drugs,” said Robinson, a former prosecutor who founded the treatment organization after dealing with his own addiction.

CRC offers clients more than 20 hours of clinical programming weekly, with counseling provided by licensed counselors and peer support groups led by state-certified peer support specialists. State-certified case managers also work with each client to improve their recovery environment by addressing family, educational, housing, and vocational needs.

“Crown Recovery Center is positioned in proximity with a very manageable drive to many of Kentucky’s largest cities which includes Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Owensboro, and Covington,” says Pat Fogarty, Senior Vice President of Operations for Addiction Recovery Care. “We are excited to expand our national model of success and provide impactful, relevant care to many more Kentuckians in need.”

Once fully operational, Crown Recovery Center will have the opportunity to serve more than 700 clients daily suffering from substance use disorder. ARC leadership is partnering with the Lebanon/Marion County Career Center announce and fill positions. Career opportunities can be found at
