Between 2019 and 2020 Kentucky experiences a 49% increase in overdose related deaths sending the number to 1,964 Kentuckians dying in 2020, the highest number of deaths in the last few years. While these statistics match the national trend increase and were likely increased because of the impact of COVID-19, it is clear that there is a need for outpatient rehab in Kentucky.

What Is Outpatient Rehab in Kentucky?

Outpatient treatment is a consistent addiction treatment program that allows you to live away from the treatment facility. This does not include inpatient addiction treatment programs. 

Outpatient Rehab in Kentucky Explained

Outpatient rehabs combine group therapy with individual and family counseling during convenient times for you. This type of care allows for individuals to continue working, living from home, and even caring for others while working on themselves. 

Outpatient rehab requires a level of responsibility and motivation to complete. These two things are necessary because of the frequent appointments and travel. Additionally, motivation is necessary because living in a world so focused on alcohol and substances is challenging. Clients who choose outpatient care will be faced with triggers and stressors from day one. 

Oftentimes individuals will be required to go through an assessment to determine if intensive outpatient or outpatient care is a viable fit for their addiction treatment needs. Oftentimes the less intensive nature does not provide the level of treatment individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders or those with severe addiction need to be successful with addiction treatment.

Finally, outpatient treatment centers for substance abuse may have the opportunity to offer supportive medication when it comes to addiction treatment. Through this medically-assisted treatment program, clients receive supportive medication at a designated facility while attending group, individual, and or family counseling. This FDA approved process supports clients who have traditionally struggled staying sober on their own and provides additional support on their journey of rehabilitation.
