Park Place Recovery Center is a division of Lifeskills, Inc., a private, nonprofit corporation that provides mental health and developmental disabilities services, in addition to comprehensive addiction treatment. Located within walking distance of Lampkin Park in Bowling Green, Ky., Park Place offers short-term residential care for adults struggling with substance abuse.

Non-medical detox services are also offered. Those seeking a less intensive treatment option may wish to access one of Lifeskills’ outpatient programs, which are offered in each of the ten counties that the agency serves.


Park Place aims to create individualized, tailored treatment plans for its clients. The facility works with each resident to determine goals for the duration of treatment, which varies according to each client’s needs.

During their time at Park Place, clients engage in a mix of individual counseling, group therapy, family therapy, educational programming, 12-step meetings, and recreational activities. Additionally, the facility can provide referrals for residents needing psychiatric evaluation or assistance.

Following completion of the program, clients are invited to participate in weekly aftercare sessions, which provide ongoing support and sober networking opportunities.


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website or otherwise regarding its treatment staff. An alum and staff member polled by both rated Lifeskills, Inc. five out of five stars for its staff’s level of training and experience.


Few details of the residential and sleeping quarters are available. The building is located in a rural area and is flanked by trees, private homes, and a baseball field. According to Western Kentucky University’s partnership directory, the 20-bed facility is co-ed, but houses men and women separately.


Three alumni polled by to date gave Life Skills, Inc. mixed reviews. Alum Tiffanie rated the facility only one star in treatment effectiveness and meals and nutrition and two stars in accommodations and amenities, warning not to attend the facility, but the other two alumni rated the facility three and four out of five stars in the same categories. Alum Jennifer wrote: “they taught me a lot about my disease I didn’t know about.”

To date, Park Place received three five-star reviews on its Facebook page, which the facility can manage. Alum Jennifer wrote: “Park Place recovery center saved my life. I loved it there. they helped me get clean and the tools to stay clean.”[1]


The sibling of a former client praised Park Place’s family services, and gave the facility five out of five stars in nearly every category to date, including treatment effectiveness, accommodations and amenities, holistic treatment options, connectivity, family participation, admin and discharge processes, and the staff’s level of training and experience. The reviewer told “Family participation was mandatory. Guidance and help was also given to the family members that gave insight to addiction.”


Current staffer R.S. described Park Place as a wonderful facility to date, and noted that it offers some medication assisted therapy for opiate and alcohol withdrawal.


According to HealthGrove, Park Place accepts military insurance, state insurance other than Medicaid, and Access to Recovery vouchers.

This facility really helped my brother and another friend with their addictions. Family participation was mandatory. Guidance and help was also given to the family members that gave insight to addiction.
