Recovering from a substance dependency on alcohol is a lifelong process, but it starts with one step, admitting you need help. Once that is done, you can focus on finding the right rehab treatment program. A Professional alcohol treatment center can help you understand the proper steps to recovery from detox, to behavioral therapy, and finally outpatient services. Landmark Recovery of Louisville can help you conquer addiction and achieve and maintain sobriety with our proven, science-backed alcohol treatment programs.
Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance in Kentucky. According to recent findings from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, around 40% of all Kentucky residents over the age of 12 are current drinkers and in the past month 20% of Kentuckians consumed five or more drinks on the same occasion. 1 This dangerous pattern of alcohol abuse, known as binge drinking, is most common young adults. Around 30% of Kentucky residents aged 18-25 have participated in binge alcohol use at least once during the past month.
Substance and alcohol abuse is a serious problem among Kentucky’s high school students. One-quarter of all Kentucky high school seniors currently drinks alcohol, 1 in 5 reported being drunk in the past month, and nearly 1 in 7 had 5 or more drinks in a row over the last 2 weeks. 2
It is estimated that 1 in 21 Kentuckians struggles with an addiction to alcohol (also known as alcohol use disorder or alcoholism), including a staggering 1 in 12 young adults. 1
Studies have shown that most people with an alcohol use disorder will benefit from some form of alcohol rehab. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reports that the majority individuals treated for alcoholism substantially reduce their drinking and have fewer alcohol-related problems, and about one-third of people who receive treatment for alcohol abuse sustain long-term recovery and report no further symptoms one year later. 3
At Landmark Recovery of Louisville’s alcohol treatment center, your health and total well-being are our only concerns. We offer evidence-based alcohol treatment services that will help you quit drinking and provide you with the tools needed to achieve successful long-term recovery from substance addiction. Our alcohol treatment program starts with an initial medical assessment by a medical health professional to assess the severity of alcohol addiction and determine whether anti-craving medication or medically supervised detox is needed. We will then provide you with a personalized alcohol treatment plan with services tailored to your specific needs.
Depending on the nature of your alcoholism and any unique support challenges you face (such as a co-occurring mental health disorder), Landmark Recovery of Louisville offers a variety of alcohol rehab program options for you to choose from. Our comprehensive, 35-day residential treatment is the most intensive and will require you to stay at our alcohol rehab center for the duration of your treatment. Partial hospitalization programs provide the supervision, structure, and guidance of residential treatment for several hours during the day but allow you to spend the night at home or in a sober living home. 4 Intensive outpatient programs provide treatment outside of a residential setting and are ideal for individuals who do not require stabilization for withdrawal and who wish to live at home and meet work and personal obligations. Regardless of the format of your rehab , all Landmark Recovery alcohol treatment programs feature similar key components, including detox, counseling and therapy, and pharmacological interventions. 5
Because many heavy drinkers with an alcohol dependence experience uncomfortable and potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms when they suddenly stop consuming alcohol, we strongly recommend medically supervised detox as the initial step of our Louisville alcohol treatment program. 6 At our state-of-the-art alcohol treatment center, trained clinical specialists provide around-the-clock monitoring and supportive care to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process.
As part of our rehab services, we may also prescribe certain medications to help reduce the intense cravings and painful symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. Currently, there are three medications that have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for alcohol addiction treatment (naltrexone, acamprosate, and disulfiram). 3 These non-addictive drugs can be used alone but are most effective when incorporated into a rehab plan that includes counseling, group therapy, and social support.
Other integral components of Landmarks Recovery’s holistic alcohol treatment program include individual and group counseling, medication-assisted treatment, peer support groups, meditation and mindfulness therapy, health and wellness education, and behavioral therapy, a form of treatment that will help identify underlying causes of addiction and teach life skills and coping strategies needed to prevent relapse. 7 Landmark Recovery of Louisville offers a variety of evidence-based behavioral therapies that have been proven to be effective forms of treatment for alcohol addiction. These include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, and contingency management interventions. 8-10
