There are many habit-forming substances that can lead to addiction when abused. Our Louisville substance abuse recovery center specializes in identifying your particular problems and helping you safely recover with evidence-based treatment options.
Substance abuse has taken a devastating toll on the residents of Kentucky. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly 1 in 14 Kentuckians currently suffers from some form of addiction. 1 Other recent findings from this study pertaining to Kentucky residents include:
Kentucky has one of the highest rates of drug overdose fatalities in the nation. 2 The number of drug overdose deaths in Kentucky climbed to 1,316 in 2019, representing a five percent increase in drug overdose deaths since 2018. 3 The elevated death toll has been driven by the current opioid crisis that is ravaging the state. According to autopsy and toxicology reports from Kentucky coroners and the Kentucky Office of the Medical Examiner, this rise in overdose deaths is linked to the increased abuse of fentanyl, an extremely powerful opioid drug normally used to treat advanced cancer pain. 4
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, an estimated 264,000 thousand people in Kentucky – around 1 in 7 Kentuckians– are in need of substance abuse recovery treatment. Unfortunately, admissions data indicate that only 22,000 individuals – or around 1 out of every 10 individuals in need of substance abuse recovery treatment– were treated at Kentucky rehab centers in 2019. 5
If you are struggling with substance abuse, please consider getting treatment from healthcare professionals who have been trained to interact and deal with persons suffering from addiction. Landmark Recovery offers specialized care and evidence-based therapies that will help you achieve wellness and long-term sobriety. Our Louisville substance abuse recovery center provides a safe and secure environment that is drug- and alcohol-free, keeping you away from outside stressors and temptations to use.
Addiction is a treatable disease, although there is no single treatment approach that is suitable for everyone. 6 For this reason, all substance abuse recovery programs at Landmark Recovery are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of each client’s unique background.
After you undergo an initial intake exam and evaluation, an intake clinician or primary addiction counselor will devise a personalized substance abuse recovery treatment plan that addresses your specific substance abuse problems, personal recovery goals, and potential health challenges (such as a co-occurring mental health disorder). Depending on the length and severity of your addiction, treatment may be delivered through a combination of residential care, a partial hospitalization program, or intensive outpatient services.
Before you begin any form of our Louisville substance abuse recovery treatment, you must first discontinue substance use and go through detox, a critical step of recovery that encompasses flushing out all traces of substances from your system. Due to the extremely uncomfortable symptoms that are associated with drug and alcohol withdrawal, we recommend that you do not try detoxing at home by yourself.
The medical detox program at Landmark Recovery in Louisville can keep you safe and comfortable during the entire detox process. Trained clinical specialists will provide supportive care and administer medications to help manage the intense cravings and negative effects of withdrawal. Around-the-clock monitoring will also allow us to promptly address any medical complications that arise, such as the potentially life-threatening seizures often experienced during alcohol withdrawal. 7
Although detox is a necessary step in overcoming addiction, long-term substance abuse recovery will require a positive change in your behaviors and attitudes toward drug use. Landmark Recovery utilizes a variety of evidence-based therapies to identify the underlying causes of your addiction and help you develop coping skills and behavioral changes that are needed to control cravings and prevent relapse. 8 Depending on your substance of abuse and severity of addiction, your personalized recovery treatment plan may include proven approaches such as individual and group counseling, behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment (for opioid and alcohol addictions), family therapy, meditation and mindfulness therapies, and health and wellness education. 9
