Bridging Five Decades: A Historical Snapshot

Bridge to Recovery Co-founders Paul and Carol Cannon were dedicated to finding the “right space” for the program and searched for land across several states, finally settling on 115 acres in rural south-central Kentucky.

The property had the seclusion and privacy they sought so that clients attending the program could feel safe and secure to do their healing work. Originally only having one dwelling on the property, a Civil War era log-cabin, the first attendees of The Bridge to Recovery completed the program in the small cabin.

During this time, our iconic bridge was built to allow our clients and employees safe access over the creek that straddles the property.
