Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Kentucky

If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance use disorder, then help is available in Kentucky. There are over a hundred detox programs in the state that can help you begin the journey of recovery. Some of these detox facilities may specialize in alcohol treatment and some may specialize in drug treatment.

Once detox is completed it is usually recommended to find further treatment options and aftercare. Inpatient treatment is an option, but there are only 15 such providers in Kentucky. There are 101 rehab centers that offer residential treatment and 416 that offer outpatient treatment in Kentucky. These treatment providers can help someone further their recovery and build a solid foundation for a sober life. Many of these drug rehab centers will also provide flexible treatment plans. Outpatient services, in particular, can help someone ease back into their daily routine while still getting high-quality care.

There is a high occurrence of mental health issues alongside substance abuse. Kentucky actually ranks quite well as far as mental health issues among the general population. Mental Health America released a 2020 survey ranking Kentucky in 15th place out of the nation. This includes the rate of mental health issues and access to care. That being said, people struggling with addiction experience much higher rates of mental health issues than the general population. Getting dual diagnosis care for both of these issues can be crucial to successful recovery. The state of Kentucky has 243 SAMHSA-approved rehab programs that provide addiction and mental health services. These rehab facilities utilize more behavioral therapy techniques than most programs that only treat addiction.

Drug Abuse in Kentucky

Kentucky has had issues with drugs and alcohol for a very long time. Originally a hub for moonshine during prohibition, Kentucky has been in the middle of the opioid epidemic for several decades now. Methamphetamine is also a major issue in the state. From 2008 to 2011 there was a 298% increase in the number of meth lab seizures by law enforcement. In 2011 there were almost 1,800 meth labs seized in Kentucky alone. Marijuana is also a major issue in the state. Surprisingly, in 2009 Kentucky was the 4th largest domestic producer of marijuana.

Kentucky is also the major focus of the Appalachia HIDTA (High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area). This is a multiagency organization that works to stop drug trafficking and overdose deaths across the region. There are currently 17 agencies within Kentucky that are a part of this group. There are also many other agencies from surrounding states that contribute to this project.

Kentucky has been a centerpiece of the opioid epidemic for many years now. Even before the opioid epidemic, crystal meth and alcohol abuse were fairly widespread in the state. Heroin, oxycodone, and other prescription opioids have also been popular in Kentucky for several decades. As of 2016, Kentucky ranked 6th in the country for the highest number of prescription opioid overdose deaths. Kentucky was also 10th place for fentanyl overdose deaths and 8th for prescription opioid-involved deaths. With all factors combined, Kentucky ranks 6th in the nation in 2016 for all drug overdose deaths, with 1,419 overdose deaths that year. The trend of increasing overdoses has only been accelerating. In 2017, the overdose death rate in Kentucky was almost twice the national average. In 2017 there were 21.7 overdose deaths per 100,000 people nationwide. In Kentucky, there were 37.2 overdose deaths per 100,000 people. There were a total of 1,566 overdose deaths in Kentucky in 2017.

While the problem is continuing to grow, the chances for recovery remain constant. If someone is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, oftentimes the first step that results in the most positive outcome is to enter a drug or alcohol detox center. These centers can help someone get through detox safely and successfully, and help them find further treatment and care after the detox process is complete.
