Kentucky is on the forefront of the battle against addiction. Prescription opioid, heroin, and methamphetamine abuse have destroyed lives and leveled communities across Kentucky, making it the fifth leading state in the nation for fatalities from drug overdose. Landmark Recovery of Lexington was founded in order to fight addiction and restore hope, function, and purpose to the lives and families of those held hostage by addiction.
Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Landmark of Lexington offers intensive outpatient (IOP) services for drug and alcohol addiction. Through a broad range of treatment methods channeled through individualized recovery plans, we focus on developing the framework for successful, continued recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. This program is based on a part-time, yet intensive schedule where patients meet three days per week for three hours per day. Patients will partake in industry-leading, evidence-based engagement methods for treatment.
The price of drug addiction seems to be rising higher every year. There is the toll it takes on lives and relationships, the lives it claims on a daily basis, and the loss in productivity and rising health care costs, plus the money spent fighting drug-related crimes.
Fentanyl was present in more than half of all overdose deaths.
“By bringing together subject matter experts from prevention, treatment, recovery, and law enforcement, we are striving to find multiple pathways to reduce all opioid abuse in Louisville and the surrounding communities.”

Rate of Opioid-Related Overdose Deaths in Kentucky
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a primary treatment program recommended by clinicians and medical staff for many individuals newly sober or in need of continuing resources to help with addiction. At Landmark Recovery of Lexington, IOP patients are able to attend multiple sessions per week while continuing to live at home and meet work and personal obligations.
Whether you’ve just completed a residential treatment program or you’re simply seeking an ongoing program to keep you motivated and focused on sobriety, our comprehensive IOP will give you the tools you need to stay on track with your recovery.
Overall, studies on outpatient treatment have found that 50 – 70% of participants report abstinence at follow-up, and most studies found that this outcome did not differ for inpatient versus outpatient settings of care. Depending on the substance and the severity of the addiction, intensive outpatient may be the best option for an individual seeking to get sober and restore balance and function to their lives.
Outpatient rehab can be an effective means of treatment for individuals suffering from alcoholism. Outpatient treatment is less time intensive than inpatient, more affordable, and allows patients to fulfill work obligations while receiving clinical care. Our intake clinicians evaluate patients on a case-by-case basis to determine whether outpatient is the right course of action to pursue and work to set them up with the best option available.
Outpatient rehab can be a viable solution for many alcoholics because it allows individuals to receive treatment, continue working and living, and be held accountable for staying sober. A typical IOP session will last from 1-3 hours per session and can include group recovery work, individual counseling, family therapy, individual therapy, or expressive therapy. Although IOP may not be the perfect solution for every candidate, it is great for those deemed to be qualified.

Outpatient rehab is recommended for individuals with substance use disorders that do not require the intensity of medical detoxification. Patients who graduate Landmark Recovery IOP for substance dependence are welcome to return back and participate in a limited amount of IOP sessions per week if they so wish. Ongoing support in the form of continued participation and contact with alumni support staff is an excellent way to increase chances of continued sobriety.
“Kentucky families are on the front lines of the battle against opioid and substance abuse and we are grateful for the help from the federal government to respond. There are many innovative strategies in this bill that I believe can make the difference in our fight.”

Operation UNITE is a large nonprofit serving multiple counties in the Appalachian area overwhelmed by the addiction crisis. UNITE offers summer camps, service clubs, and community-wide events focused on keeping kids off of drugs through activities such as kayaking, fishing, basketball, and learning more about substance dependency. In the Appalachia area, the average age that individuals first use drugs is about 11 years old, so early intervention can be integral to preventing abuse.
