Chrysalis House: Building a Community, One Family at a Time…

Chrysalis House – Celebrating 40 Years!

More than 40 years and counting-that’s how long Chrysalis House has been saving families. We could not do it without the generous support of the community. Chrysalis House specialized in treating substance dependent expecting mothers, allowing them to keep their newborns and toddlers with them while in treatment.

Precautionary Response to COVID-19

Chrysalis House, Inc. is committed to the health and safety of our clients during this time of increased risk.  We have decided to exercise extreme precaution, while also relying on state and federal authorities as we adjust our policies and procedures.

Here are some of the changes that have already been implemented at Chrysalis House.

  • We have increased the attention of our hand hygiene policy for all staff and clients.  Our hand hygiene policies already meet the standards set forth by CARF.
  • We have suspended visitation at all facilities, except for minor children (and the court-appointed supervisor) until further notice.
  • We are encouraging online meetings and social distancing at all outside peer based recovery meetings to avoid the increased risk of exposure presented by large crowds and gatherings. 
  • We have implemented new admission procedures to prevent integrating any high risk individual into our treatment community.
  • We have postponed our graduation ceremony scheduled for March 26.
  • We are working with our employees to adjust their work schedules due to school and daycare closures.  Essential program staff continue to show up as needed for our clients if they are not in a high risk category and/or present with fever, difficulty breathing or dry cough.
  • We have sanitized and designated an isolation room at each facility in the event of a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19.
  • Should any staff or client be confirmed to have COVID-19 we will immediately contact the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department and state authority for guidance.
  • We will follow recommendations and requirements set forth by the local, state and federal government.

We understand that things are subject to change quickly.  Our leadership team is committed to the health and safety of our clients, staff and partners and will respond accordingly.

Residential treatment for pregnant and parenting women

In late 2018, Chrysalis House opened its fourth residential treatment facility for women and their children on the Eastern State Hospital campus. The 11,000 square ft. building, will provide a safe, nurturing and aesthetically pleasing environment much like the other Chrysalis House residential programs.
