Substance Abuse, Chemical Dependency, & Rehab Education



What is rehab?

Rehabilitation, commonly referred to simply as “rehab,” includes treatment and therapy for individuals who abuse substances or who suffer from emotional and physical problems. At Landmark Recovery, rehab includes rehabilitation and recovery from drug and alcohol addictions. We also offer a safe, healing space for individuals who have been abused or mistreated.


Do I need rehab?

If your life is out of control or unmanageable because of an addiction or behavior, it is time for rehab. It is important to listen to people who love you – when they tell you it’s time to find help and treatment, listen to them. If you feel like things are simply not working in your life, it may be time to seek treatment. If you feel that your drug or alcohol use has gotten out of hand or has begun to impact your life – such as your relationships, your job, your schooling, and your health – rehab may be the answer you need to overcome your addiction and get your life back on track. When you notice the signs of addiction in a loved one, it is time to help them and aid them in receiving treatment.


How long does rehab take?

The length of rehabilitation treatment depends on each individual. We provide many programs at Landmark recovery, and your specific treatment length will depend on your needs, the type of addiction you struggle with, and how you respond to treatment. It is important to stay for the entire rehab period to ensure that you achieve lasting recovery.


Should my family be involved in my rehab?

Our team believes that your family’s involvement can be a great benefit to you during treatment. Addiction affects not only you – it also affects those close to you, especially your family. To help you recover and to help your family heal, we encourage your family’s involvement in your rehab. We focus on healing the whole family, and we frequently have family days, family group counseling, and more to ensure that your family is involved in your treatment process.

What is detox?

Detoxification, often simply called “detox,” involves clearing the body of toxins and harmful substances like drugs. The detox process may be uncomfortable, but it is crucial in achieving improved health and wellness, and is an important step in rehabilitation and recovery. Depending on the drugs that have been used, a detox program may include taking specific supplements, drinking certain liquids designed for detoxification, eating prescribed foods, or fasting. During the detoxification treatment, we can often ease physical discomfort through medication; our team will know the best way to help you through detox at Landmark recovery.


How much does rehab cost?

The cost of rehab depends on the program, the length of treatment, and other factors. You may feel reluctant to learn more about rehab because of the cost, but at Landmark recovery, we believe that cost should not be an obstacle on the road to recovery. Our team is always happy to help you work out a financial solution that fits your situation and allows you to receive the treatment you need. We encourage you to contact us today to learn more about the cost of alcohol and drug treatment in Louisville Kentucky, and for more information about our financial options.


Does insurance cover rehab?
