Centerstone Addiction Recovery Center Philosophy

Jefferson Alcohol and Drug Abuse Center (JADAC) provides medically supervised inpatient detoxification and residential treatment to Kentucky residents struggling from chemical dependency. During inpatient detoxification, participants receive medical evaluation, withdrawal assistance, counseling, addiction education, and resource referrals. Residents receive counseling, life skills coursework, and 12-Step services. JADAC also provides outpatient treatment for up to twelve weeks, after which time clients are referred to aftercare treatment that provides services such as group counseling and medical assessment to continue their road on recovery.

Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

ABOUT CENTERSTONE ADDICTION RECOVERY CENTER

Formally known as the Jefferson Alcohol and Drug Abuse Center (JADAC), the Centerstone Addiction Recovery Center is an 80-bed treatment facility that provides inpatient care, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and aftercare for adults struggling with chemical dependency. Located in Louisville, Ky. and a division of Centerstone Kentucky, a regional treatment provider, the center also offers specialized programming for pregnant clients. If necessary, medical detoxification services are available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, clients undergo an initial substance abuse assessment to determine an appropriate level of care. If detoxification is necessary, or the client requires supervision and structure to acquire and sustain sobriety, the individual may be referred to the facility’s inpatient program. According to the facility’s website, the length of inpatient care varies depending on the client’s needs. The facility does provide an inpatient-based residential program, which provides extended inpatient care.

Centerstone Addiction Recovery Center’s programming adheres to the disease model of addiction and 12-steps model of recovery. During inpatient care, clients attend on-site 12-step meetings, study fellowship literature, and perform associated “step-work.” In addition to 12-step immersion, clients also participate in group and individual counseling sessions, as well as attend educational classes on the nature of disease and addiction, life skills training, and relapse prevention. An educational, three-week “concerned persons” program is also available to loved ones of clients.

Once a client completes an inpatient program, clinicians provide discharge planning and referrals to community services. The center also offers a specialized case management services for pregnant women called Project Link. In some cases, clinicians may encourage residential clientele to utilize the facility’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) as “step-down” aftercare service.

IOP is comprised of two to four evening sessions per a week, for two to 12 weeks. To individualize treatment, the center provides gender-specific and co-ed program tracks. IOP includes counseling sessions and educational classes. Designed to provide ongoing support, the center’s aftercare services include ongoing assessments and group counseling sessions on relapse prevention.

I enjoyed their food and their policy that if you are not feeling well they let you sleep and then they will come in and check on you. They also used 12-Steps and I was fond of that; however, they could have used more family involvement.

They have people who care about helping people beat their addiction. I would like for them to have more activities for their clients. They do a fine job and this is not an easy job to do so you have to be dedicated.

A little over crowded, I would have liked more smoke breaks. More leisure time. Activities to stay busy not just lessons. Food was good. Beds were horribly uncomfortable. Would like to have more physical opportunities and less forced meeting. More leisure time

There was nothing offered there outside of class, counseling and food. Spent too much time watching movies that had nothing to do with recovery. Absolutely no offering for art, creativity or physical activity. Plenty of time to sit still, though, which I guess is something I needed to learn to do. I was able to gather a few weeks sober there as well. Most of the staff really cared and made time to talk if you needed but it would have been nice to have some instruments or art therapy and at least some level of physical activity.
