Unveiling Landmark Recovery’s Mission to Save a Million Lives
September serves as a significant marker for those journeying through recovery from alcohol and drug addiction, and it’s a time to bring attention to this often misunderstood issue. Brian Shlonsky of WAVE’s show Listens Live sat down with Michelle Dubey, the Vice President of Clinical Quality at Landmark Recovery, to discuss National Recovery Month and Landmark Recovery’s impactful work.
Who is Landmark Recovery?
“Landmark Recovery of Louisville is a substance use treatment facility that’s local to the community,” Dubey described. “It’s actually where we started about seven years ago.”
From detoxification to outpatient programs, Landmark Recovery of Louisville has been serving the Kentucky community through its two locations. The facility also extends long-term support through its alumni program.
Saving a Million Lives in Louisville
During the conversation, Dubey revealed Landmark’s audacious mission.
“We are working on having an impact and saving a million lives in 100 years,” Dubey said.
This enormous endeavor is not just about individuals but extends to their families, friends, and communities. According to Dubey, the impact of simple community outreach is huge. So far, Landmark Recovery has saved 20,000 lives and remains committed to its larger mission.
Our Alumni Program: A Lifelong Support Network
Michelle Dubey emphasized the importance of Landmark’s alumni program after rehab is finished.
“We want to set them up to have support for the rest of their lives,” Dubey said.
Graduates of the Landmark Recovery programs are connected to alumni coordinators who offer long-term support and even coordinate community events.
Stigma and Barriers to Treatment
Dubey was candid about the impact of stigma on treatment, noting that it’s a “pretty big barrier” for those seeking help. Despite the efforts of Landmark Recovery of Louisville, stigma remains a pressing issue in Kentucky, but the company is committed to breaking down these walls.
“We often have family members making that first contact,” Dubey said, signifying the importance of community support.
You’re Not Alone: How to Take the Next Steps
“You’re not alone, and you don’t have to go through this alone,” Dubey reassured viewers. Landmark Recovery is available around the clock to provide necessary resources and support.
One of the ways Dubey said that viewers can become educated on the topic of prevention is through learning overdose reversal.
“Overdose is 100% preventable and reversible,” Dubey said. She advocates for carrying Narcan and understanding how to use it as a proactive measure.
