Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment
At Robert Alexander Center, we acknowledge the complexity and challenges of addiction. However, we firmly believe that with adequate tools and support, the road to recovery can bring about transformation, growth, and healing. That’s why we continuously strive to innovate our programs and approaches to effectively guide our clients on their distinctive paths.
UNDERSTANDING SUBSTANCE ABUSE
We are dedicated to helping those addicted to drugs and alcohol in finding their path to personal, long-term recovery from addiction.
Addiction is painful. It’s crushing. It’s a battle.
It’s isolating. It’s lonely.
But most of all, addiction is misunderstood and because of that, perhaps worst of all in some ways, it’s brutally stigmatized.
The lack of understanding and therefore the lack of sympathy to a degree stems from society pinning the wrong definition on the word.
As per the National Institute on Drug Abuse, addiction is defined as a “chronic, relapsing disorder characterized by compulsive drug seeking, continued use despite harmful consequences, and long-lasting changes in the brain. It is considered both a complex brain disorder and a mental illness. Addiction is the most severe form of a full spectrum of substance use disorders, and is a medical illness caused by repeated misuse of a substance or substances.”
While it’s widely accepted by medical professionals that addiction is a mental illness, users often still find themselves being treated as less than others.
Here at our Kentucky drug & alcohol rehab programs, we get it, and compassionate care is the rule.
We believe everyone has the ability to recover from addiction.
Our drug and alcohol rehab in KY is on a mission to truly make a lasting impact on those affected by the disease of addiction in Kentucky, and beyond.
I HIGHLY recommend allowing RAC to provide the care and tools for your lifelong sobriety. I love every individual there for giving me a new lease on life!
I had a very nice time. Community and staff are fantastic, beyond what was expected. I had lots of eye opening talks, learned recovery strategies, and had lots of fun with other people just like me. I am excited to move forward to another one of their programs!
I absolutely LOVED RAC, and all of the staff. I was absolutely terrified to go to rehab. But it has been such a warm and welcoming experience. Starting with my detox, all of the staff and nurses made sure of it my needs were met. The ARPN has been a God send. She makes sure you're comfortable. I would recommend RAC to anyone who is ready to get the help they so much deserve.
The Robert Alexander center is wonderful place to recover from drugs and alcohol the detox portion of my recovery here was amazing I felt comfortable at all times. When I moved over to the residential side the group therapy and the individual therapy both did wonders for my self confidence and self worth. This place is a 10 out of 10 for anyone wanting to recover from drugs
My name is Jeff upon coming here you will feel anxious and worried about where you’re going and what you’re getting into. However you will be more than pleasantly surprised because the staff and other residence are great, the education you will get is outstanding and helpful. Just absorb it all and you will be better. Do not ama after a few days because it’s not your thing because it’s not your thing, it will become your thing if you let it. Good luck.

HOW TO KNOW IF SOMEONE IS ADDICTED
Signs Someone May Be Abusing Drugs & Alcohol
When it comes to helping your loved one, the best thing you can do initially is just to pay attention. While it may feel like drug or alcohol abuse sneaks up on us and catches us off guard with their ferocity, the truth is, there are almost always signs and symptoms that are happening right in front of our eyes.
It’s easy to ignore. Simple to make excuses. Doing that, however, risks catastrophe.
Catching these symptoms early enough can make a huge difference in stemming the tide of addiction and getting your family member or friend the help they need before things get even worse.
So, what are the signs?
For starters, there are many commonalities in how addiction manifests itself, particularly with respect to behavior, with drugs and alcohol. Naturally, the use of certain drugs will have much more pronounced physical effects, i.e. the devastation that meth has on the body but the addictive behavior itself presents similarly.
Here’s what to look for concerning substance abuse:
Behavioral Warning Signs Of Substance Abuse
- Lack of control and a total inability to cut back on using and/or drinking
- Being overly secretive
- Diminishing performance at work or school
- Missing responsibilities related to school, family, work, etc.
- Unexplained absences
- A dramatic change in habits/priorities
- Borrow or even stealing to fund a drug habit
- Starting to hang with new friends
- Continuing to drink or use drugs despite the problems they’re clearly causing
Physical Warning Signs Of Substance Abuse
- Increased tolerance
- Bloodshot eyes
- Drastically changed sleeping patterns, either too much or too little
- Impaired speech and coordination
- Lack of care for personal hygiene, unusual smells and a general worsening of physical appearance
- Sudden weight fluctuation
- Withdrawal symptoms
Psychological Warning Signs Of Substance Abuse
- A significant shift in personality
- Lack of motivation and lethargy
All of that said, you don’t have to memorize a bunch of esoteric stuff, or keep a running list of the signs you’re seeing. In point of fact, if you’re here reading this, you probably already have suspicions that something is going on and just need to be moved to action. If any of the above jibes with what you’re noticing, it’s very likely the time to reach out for some professional guidance.

PREPARING FOR TREATMENT
Options at Our Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center in Kentucky
Fortunately, you have someone to call and a place to go.
Our drug addiction treatment facility in Kentucky can be the solution you or your loved one needs to get on the road to recovery, no matter how severe the addiction.
At Robert Alexander Center for Recovery we offer a number of distinct options:
Detoxification – The process of medically-assisted detox and withdrawal management under the care of expert medical professional. Our drug detox program in Kentucky offers 7-10 day detox programs to help you begin the process of achieving life long recovery.
Residential Inpatient– The next step in the journey is residential inpatient treatment. Typically an inpatient rehab program can last 30-90 days, depending on each clients unique needs in treatment. From daily clinical groups to individual therapy, an inpatient rehab program in Kentucky like Robert Alexander Center’s is the perfect option for those seeking recovery from substance abuse.
Partial Hospitalization – For those who can’t attend an inpatient program, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) may be the best route to go. This is the most rigorous program and stops just short of the demands of inpatient care. While you don’t stay overnight, you’ll be expected to keep a highly structured schedule that includes several hours of therapy. Roughly on the order of 4-6 hours per day and 3-5 days a week.
Intensive Outpatient – This is another option that doesn’t require staying in residence. We offer an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in Kentucky. The reality is that not everyone can leave work or their families to get help, an intensive outpatient program provides the care and counseling you need without pulling you away from your daily life.
Outpatient – If the addiction you are working to overcome is on the mild or moderate side, our outpatient program in Kentucky will suit you well. We create a program suited to your needs where you can get group or individual counseling to get back on track. This is a few hours on certain days of the week.
Family Therapy – Addiction doesn’t just affect the user; it can shatter the whole family which is why family therapy is a crucial option to consider. Having the entire family involved leads to better outcomes for preventing relapse as well as giving the family an overall better understanding of what addiction really is. That alone can do wonders for recovery.
