Unfortunately, despite the millions of people that the disease of addiction has and continues to impact, not even half of those who required professional addiction treatment received it. One of the greatest barriers to treatment is the accessibility to it. Despite the growing amount of people who are being diagnosed with a substance use disorder, the costs of obtaining professional treatment are still extremely high, mostly due to insurance companies not providing full or even partial coverage for services rendered for this disease. Another obstacle that stands between those addicted and professional treatment is the continued stigma associated with addiction. Those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol tend to struggle with reaching out for help, as they fear it will cause others to treat them differently. Whatever stands in the way of professional substance abuse treatment, however, does not erase the need for care to help those who need it most. 

Out of the many different types of addiction treatment, the substance abuse treatment in Lexington, KY that we provide is conducted on an outpatient basis. As a result, we offer two separate outpatient programs — intensive outpatient and outpatient — to those who are ready to end their addiction for good. Within these programs, we provide evidence-based treatments designed to help address addiction, such as:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Experiential therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Trauma-focused therapies
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Family therapy

In addition to the disease of addiction, our substance abuse treatment in Lexington, KY also offers treatment for those with a dual diagnosis. The types of mental illnesses that we treat in conjunction with substance use disorders range from bipolar disorder and anxiety to narcissistic personality disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. 

Outpatient Programs

Each individual patient receiving substance abuse treatment in Lexington, KY has his or her own needs in terms of treatment. Our team of professionals works with each patient to help determine which of our outpatient programs is best for him or her so that he or she can begin the process of recovery. 

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our intensive outpatient program is one of the primary forms of substance abuse treatment in Lexington, KY that we offer. This specific program is designed to treat those who do not need the intensity of inpatient services but who require a higher level of care than traditional outpatient treatment. It is also an excellent option for individuals who are transitioning from inpatient treatment or a partial hospitalization program. Additionally, the intensive outpatient program is best suited for those who:

  • Do not require medical detox or any type of 24/7 physical and/or psychiatric care
  • Have a secure home environment that is conducive to recovery
  • Have a reliable source of transportation
  • Have a support system of friends, family, loved ones, etc. in place

The intensive outpatient program spans over the course of six to eight weeks. During that time, patients go to the facility on a nearly daily basis and spend the majority of the day there. This specific type of substance abuse treatment in Lexington, KY provides patients with a complete and comprehensive treatment plan designed to address their unique needs throughout that period of time. 

Outpatient Program

The outpatient program shares many similarities with the intensive outpatient program, however, it is geared towards those who do not need the level of care that is offered in intensive outpatient programs. This type of substance abuse treatment in Lexington, KY is an excellent option for those who:

  • Are experiencing a mild substance use disorder that does not require detox
  • Have relapsed and are in need of additional support
  • Need treatment but who are unable to provide the time commitment required in inpatient or other programs
  • Are able to maintain their lives outside of treatment

Outpatient treatment is offered a few times per week. During that time, patients will stay for a couple of hours and participate in therapy and other restorative activities. The way that outpatient treatment is setup allows patients the freedom to continue to work, go to school, care for their children, etc. all while getting the professional addiction treatment they need.
