Substance abuse represents one of the most significant public safety issues facing the city of Louisville and Kentucky in general. The effects negatively impact a wide range of health, legal, and social outcomes and are felt by all Kentuckians throughout the state.
The high prevalence of drug and alcohol use, which impairs judgement and decision-making abilities, has put the lives of many Louisville and Kentucky residents in danger. The Kentucky State Police recently reported that of the 732 Kentuckians who died in auto collisions last year, 289 were under the influence of drugs and 135 were under the influence of alcohol. 1
The use of excessive amounts of drugs also increases the risk of overdose, a dangerous health condition that if left untreated can lead to death. Kentucky currently has the third highest rate of drug overdose deaths in the nation,2 with more than 1,500 overdose fatalities reported each year. 3
Over time, substance abuse causes changes in the brain that lead to drug dependence and addiction, a chronic disease characterized by compulsive drug-seeking behavior and continued use despite adverse consequences. 4 According to recent results from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, around 1 in 14 Kentuckians is currently suffering from some form of addiction. 5
Other survey findings related to substance abuse among the residents of the Bluegrass State include: 5
In 2019, there were over 22,000 admissions to Kentucky substance abuse treatment centers. 6 Unfortunately, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that nearly 9 out of 10 Kentuckians in need of rehab or recovery services do not seek or receive any form of help for their addiction from a professional substance abuse treatment center. 5
Landmark Recovery can help you overcome substance abuse and find your way back to a happy and fulfilled life. We provide expert medical care and evidence-based treatments at our safe, comfortable and amenity-filled treatment center conveniently located in Louisville, KY. Our substance abuse treatment programs are tailored to meet the specific needs of each client, ensuring that you receive the support that’s right for your personal situation.
Depending on the severity of your addiction and any unique challenges that you face (such as co-occurring mental health disorders or multiple addictions), your rehab program at our substance abuse treatment center may be implemented through a combination of residential treatment, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient services. If you abuse drugs or alcohol heavily or suffer from an addiction, you will benefit most from the 24/7 monitoring and supportive care provided through a residential treatment program. Once you are physically and mentally stable you will be referred to our intensive outpatient program, where you can continue to go through rehab while living at home and fulfilling family and work obligations.
Detox is widely considered to be the first step in a successful recovery program. Landmark Recovery of Louisville’s substance abuse treatment center and medical detox program minimizes the negative impact of withdrawal symptoms and gets you through detox successfully. Our clinical specialists provide around-the-clock care and keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process. While detoxing from opioids or alcohol you will likely be given FDA-approved medications as part of the initial stabilization process that occurs in early recovery during detox. 7 Certain medications may also be administered to treat specific withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced while you detox from other drugs.
After detox you will enter the therapeutic stage of your substance abuse treatment, where a variety of science-backed therapies will be utilized. The specific rehab therapies you receive will vary based on the drug of abuse and the nature of addiction, although counseling and behavioral therapy are the cornerstone to most substance abuse treatment programs.
Behavioral therapy will address the underlying causes of your addiction and help you develop healthy behaviors and coping skills needed to control cravings and prevent relapse. 8 Other rehab therapies that may be integrated into your treatment program include medication-assisted treatment, family therapy, meditation and mindfulness therapies, support group meetings, and health and wellness education.
