TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Kentucky 12-step meetings and find peer support groups through the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—go for walks, find a fitness center or a local community center.
  • Access open or free counseling services or contact Kentucky 2-1-1.
  • Find an activity that you enjoy—experience Red River Gorge, Kentucky Horse Park, Mammoth Cave National Park, or the Louisville Zoo.
  • Avoid risky situations to prevent relapse. Heroin and fentanyl continue to remain widely used drugs.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Find local help through Kentucky Health and Family Services or DRS.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—access community resources through the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy.
  • Addiction assessments and screening tools are vital and available through Kentucky Health and Family Services.
  • Plan and execute a family intervention with the help of a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Kentucky Long-Term Rehab

DRS and its professionals believe long-term drug rehab is the best option for a full recovery and life-long sobriety. Here are some reasons why:

  • Long-term programs provide excellent structure and routine and teach healthy habits and behavior. Because of the time you spend at treatment, there is a significant focus on ensuring these changes stick.
  • Residential long-term programs in Kentucky provide more than one treatment methodology. For example, this could include behavioral therapies, holistic treatment, experiential therapy, or traditional 12-step.
  • There is more opportunity for extended care or aftercare. Because of the time spent at a long-term program, you develop lasting sober relationships with other sober like-minded individuals.
  • Long-term programs generally attend to multiple needs—for example, helping clients with associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, or legal problems.
  • Facilities are often in remote locations away from your current environment, making it easier to focus on treatment.

Regardless of your situation financially or type of addiction, DRS will help you find the treatment you need. For more information, consult our directory service or contact one of our addiction professionals.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in Kentucky

The cost of treatment can be a major factor in what kind of care someone struggling with substance use receives. Finances can affect how quickly a person gets the help they need and whether they can receive treatment. Kentucky has a serious addiction crisis, so treatment affordability is vital. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Kentucky.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in KY

Private insurance is generally accepted at more programs than Medicaid, which is the case for Kentucky. Often, these are privately funded programs that don’t receive state or federal assistance, so they may only accept cash or top-tier insurance policies for payment. Another advantage of paying with private health insurance is that the programs that accept it usually have no waiting list to start treatment immediately.

The following insurers are offered through the Kentucky Health Insurance Marketplace 2023 Guide:

  • Anthem
  • Caresource
  • Molina
  • Ambetter/Wellcare

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

All too often, money is a limiting factor in the care a person receives. But there are usually options that can help them get into treatment or find better care faster. Sadly, there’s rarely time to research these options or get the person insured when treatment is needed.

If they don’t already have health insurance, it’s best to move forward with finding affordable treatment and, if that’s difficult, any available assistance. This may include contacting facilities that offer sliding scale payment options or monthly payment plans. A sliding scale is a system where a person can pay lower rates depending on their level of financial hardship.

For more information on how to pay for treatment, contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS or contact the center directly.

Ask a professional

  • What are the costs involved with drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in Kentucky?

    • Residential drug rehab cost without health insurance in Kentucky is $57,000.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab in Kentucky is $1,700.
    • Clinical drug and alcohol detox in Kentucky costs between $250 and $800 daily.
    • After meeting specific criteria, individuals and families can also access low-cost and free drug rehab options in Kentucky.
  • What is the length of time needed at a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program in Kentucky?

    The length of time needed at a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program in Kentucky depends on individual needs, type, and severity of the addiction. However, there are some standard lengths of time within general rehabilitation settings:

    • An average length of stay at an inpatient drug rehab in Kentucky is 4 to 6 weeks.
    • The average stay at an outpatient drug rehab facility in Kentucky is 12 to 18 weeks.
    • The average length of stay at a clinical drug or alcohol detox center in Kentucky is three to seven days; medical detox may last 7 to 14 days or longer.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Kentucky?

    Based on treatment admissions, Kentucky’s most commonly used drugs are primarily amphetamines and heroin.

    If someone you know begins to exhibit the signs of heroin or amphetamine addiction, it is critical to seek help. Addiction usually worsens with time, and it becomes more challenging to help the person accept treatment.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehabs in Kentucky

In Kentucky, the primary barrier to treatment is affordability and wait times for programs that offer affordable options. Unfortunately, a small fraction of the substance use treatment centers in the state provides services at no charge or minimum payment. Generally, clients must meet specific criteria and are part of a particular drug-using demographic to qualify for this option.

On a positive note, many programs accept state-financed health insurance other than Medicaid, and three-quarters of the facilities take Medicaid.

Additionally, residents will experience barriers regarding the selection of treatment options to choose from. There are an extensive number of outpatient centers and drug detox centers in Kentucky. Yet, residential programs are limited.

Overall, we recommend contacting multiple programs and placing a name on a waitlist if required. In addition, ask about payment options and insurance. Contact your local Medicaid office and health insurance provider and find out what is covered. Finally, compare the benefits of outpatient or residential, and remember that some help is better than no help.

State and Local Resources in Kentucky

Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy

  • Treatment and recovery resources are provided along with the KY Help Call Center which offers referrals across the state. Options will include everything from medication-assisted treatment to faith-based care. A live specialist will assist callers in working through all the variables, such as location and cost.

Kentucky Housing Corporation

  • The Kentucky Housing Corporation provides recovery programs. These services help Kentucky residents recover from substance abuse, which often leads to chronic homelessness. The Recovery Kentucky centers were designed to reduce the state’s drug problem and resolve some homelessness issues.

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
