Stepworks Recovery Centers Philosophy
We believe that each person who walks through our door for residential treatment has a unique story, personality, and set of spiritual beliefs. While our curriculum is consistent, our treatment plans are individualized to meet your specific needs. Stepworks has been in business for over 10 years, helping more than 6,000 clients achieve sobriety! Our long-term success rate is 78% – more than double the national average.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
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 STEPWORKS RECOVERY CENTERS — ELIZABETHTOWN, KY.
In operation since 2007, Stepworks Recovery Centers offers rehabilitation services to clients in Kentucky. Located 50 miles south of Louisville, the center in Elizabethtown offers detox, residential care, and aftercare for individuals struggling with substance abuse. It’s one of two facilities operated in Kentucky by Stepworks Recovery Centers. Detox services are available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients receive an initial assessment to determine which type of service would work best for them. Alcohol and opiate detox are available. A trained team monitors clients’ progress during detox. Rather than methadone, Stepworks detox utilizes small doses of Subutex. For clients entering the residential program, they may spend the first day or two in detox.
The residential program is 30 days long and incorporates the 12-Steps. Treatment is structured to allow clients to derive strength from one another, and to provide them with the necessary tools for lasting recovery through individual, group, and family therapy and psychoeducation about the nature of addiction and recovery. All clients are also encouraged to participate in daily exercise. Aftercare services are provided to clients, though details about the program are scarce.
The organization contracts with a medical professional, who is in contact with on-site staff at all times, and who attends weekly meetings at the facility. According to the facility’s website, group and individual therapy is carried out by trained therapists, though their precise credentials are not provided.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Clients live in shared rooms in a 32-bed facility, in line with the organization’s central philosophy that “recovery is better together.” Extracurricular activities include nature walks, activity courses, and basketball. Clients may not have cell phones, laptops, or tablets on-site. Laundry services are available.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the two alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date, one, Lena, would recommend the center, and the other remained neutral on this question — though they also told Rehabs.com anonymously, “I definitely wouldn’t go back to this place.” Both reviewers agreed that the center’s holistic offerings were not up to par, giving them just one out of five stars each, however, Lena gave the facility four or five out of five stars in most of the other evaluated treatment metrics including the overall quality of its individual and group counseling and its overall effectiveness. Meanwhile, the anonymous alum gave the facility one or two stars in half of the 15 evaluated treatment metrics, including its overall effectiveness and its counseling options. “They helped repair important relationships and really tried to help me build a support system…,” Lena wrote. The other reviewer cited difficulties including expense, cramped conditions, insufficient contact with his/her family, and poor staff handling of residents’ interpersonal problems.
At the time of this writing, Google — the only secondary review site to yield any feedback — featured three mixed ratings of one star, three stars, and five stars. One-star reviewer J.T. echoed the anonymous Rehabs.com reviewer by writing that most staff were compassionate and understanding, but that others “spoke down on you and didn't listen nor care about your treatment,” and complained of bullying and a lack of medical expertise. Three-star reviewer Sean praised the physical facility and his detox, but wrote that AA meetings were frequently run by clients, not people with sober time — a practice with which he vehemently disagreed. And five-star reviewer Josh wrote: “Stepworks provides a unique and helpful recovery learning experience.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The single review submitted to Rehabs.com to date was very positive. The anonymous reviewer gave the center three out of five stars for its holistic options, and four or five stars in all 14 of the other evaluated treatment metrics, including its overall effectiveness, treatment for co-occurring disorders, and counseling options. “Caring staff, effective treatment,” they wrote. “They gave my friend her best chance at repairing her life and moving forward in a positive manner.”
There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs; however, the two individuals polled do date on the center’s affordability gave it two stars and one star respectively.
