A Strong Foundation for Lasting Recovery

About Our Residential Inpatient Drug Treatment In Kentucky

Reframing how we see addiction allows us to better treat it.

For the longest time, the world viewed addiction as squarely the fault of the user. An inability to control themselves, a lack of discipline and personal responsibility, just not caring, or a whole host of other condescending and oversimplified nonsense.
“Addict” was an epithet, the equivalent of a 4-letter word, and was used solely to denigrate and downgrade a person.

This view, that of a pure moral failing and no self-control, was the prevailing narrative and the only accepted view for years. Decades and even centuries. The consequences of it were dire, those with substance abuse disorders were castigated and shunned, with scarce options for treatment with the “solution” being punishment and prison.

Recently, just in the last half-century really, the story has changed and the picture has become more complete with the help of more vigorous scientific digging. The very definition of addiction, medically speaking, has changed. It’s now recognized as a complex brain disorder and a mental illness.

To see the seismic shift, look no further than the fact that the National Institute on Drug Abuse, our federal research institute dedicated to this space, was only founded in 1974.

That brings us back to reframing, the dramatic change in how society looked at addiction also precipitated a monumental move in how treatment was approached. To be honest, it wasn’t just how treatment was approached, it was that it opened the door for the very concept of treatment itself.

As more and more research is done, we’re able to learn more and more about the nature of recovery and how to treat it. Among the best ways to overcome addiction and walk the path of lasting sobriety is through dedicated and robust treatment tailored to your personal needs.

The wonderful thing about this day and age is that not only are there many types of treatment which we’ll touch on below but our Kentucky drug & alcohol rehab center make it even more convenient to get the care you need right here in your own backyard.

Understanding Inpatient Treatment

What Exactly is Residential Inpatient?

Let’s break it down.
First of all, inpatient and residential inpatient treatment aren’t quite interchangeable terms. The core idea is similar though.

Inpatient care, in general, is a type of treatment where you live in the facility. You’re fully immersed in recovery and it’s where all your focus and attention stays until you finish. No outside distraction or temptation.

The distinction with respect to “residential” inpatient care almost exclusively boils down to the facility itself.

Standard inpatient care is the most intensive variety and usually the first step after medical detox in Kentucky. It’s all about getting to a stable footing both physically and mentally and it has a much more medical/hospital feel often with a stay of 1 to 3 months.

Residential implies exactly what you’re likely thinking. You still live in the treatment center but it’s a starkly different experience. For starters, the clinical vibe is gone and you’re in a much cozier and homier environment. You have more freedom and the structure isn’t quite as rigid while still honoring the prescribed treatment program. This phase typically lasts longer and you can think of it almost as a long transition period to acclimate and recalibrate to a sober life.
Our inpatient drug rehab in Kentucky has a luxuriously modern ambiance with all the amenities you would need so you can keep your attention squarely on the work of rehabilitation.

What to Expect During Inpatient Rehab

Whether it’s residential, or otherwise, the predominant trait or characteristic that defines inpatient care here at our inpatient rehab in Kentucky is the emphasis on the mental aspects of addiction that we know are so crucial.

This is where the individual and group therapy happens, the counseling and ultimately real work of rehab happen.

The evidence-based programs at our drug treatment programs in Kentucky are created in tandem with you and built to suit your circumstances by our team of compassionate and licensed professionals.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient:
Where Do I Start?

Now that we’ve covered the difference between residential inpatient and inpatient care, let’s dive into outpatient rehab in Kentucky.

Keeping with the transition analogy, outpatient care is usually the step after inpatient. The focus is still on the mental side of addiction and you’ll be continuing with your various therapies however the difference, and it’s a big one, is that you no longer would live in. You’d be commuting from your home or sober living house for those sessions.

The answer to where you would start isn’t as simple to give a blanket answer for.


Because every person and their circumstances are unique.
A one size fits all solution is essentially equivalent to having no solution. If your addiction to opioids, for example, is incredibly severe, the structure of your program from detox all the way through to aftercare would look starkly different than someone with a milder alcohol use disorder.

Typically though, inpatient care would be the best starting point as it allows for the deepest and most thorough care but again, the same shoe doesn’t fit every foot.

Insurance can help pay for rehab.
