Park Place Recovery Center, a LifeSkills, Inc. facility in Bowling Green, Ky., provides residential treatment for adults struggling with advanced or chronic substance use disorder. The gender-specific rehab, which provides separate programs for men and women, is one of 143 substance abuse treatment centers in Kentucky (40 percent) to offer programming tailored to men. It's also one of 155 treatment facilities in the state (43 percent) to offer programming tailored to women. Outpatient treatment programs are offered at several other LifeSkills locations, including Barren County and Simpson County.


Treatment is structured to address individual client needs. During a typical 28-day stay, residents undergo non-medical detox (if needed), are introduced to the 12-step model of recovery, and participate in group, individual, and family therapy. Groups attended by clients include psychosocial education and recreation therapy, as well as local, community-based 12-step meetings.

According to a current staff member surveyed by, Park Place Recovery Center also provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to clients battling opioid dependency. In 2017, 5,226 individuals were receiving MAT in Kentucky, making up about 1.4 percent of individuals receiving MAT at a national level.

Following completion of the residential program, clients are invited to participate in weekly aftercare sessions. Additionally, the facility will provide referrals for psychiatric services for clients struggling with co-occurring disorders.


The treatment team at Park Place Recovery include therapists, registered nurses, and behavioral health specialists.


The 20-bed facility is located in a residential area of Bowling Green, surrounded by trees, private homes, and a baseball field. Women and men are housed separately.


Of the three former clients surveyed by at the time of this writing, two gave Park Place Recovery positive feedback and one offered a negative review. The two satisfied alumni indicated that treatment was effective and staff were knowledgeable and kind. "Its a friendly place,for a rehab," wrote Jennifer in a representative review. "But they taught me a lot about my disease I didn't know about." The one dissatisfied alum, named Tiffanie, indicated that the program was not helpful and simply wrote: "Horrible place to go."

On Google[1], Park Place Recovery received an average rating of four out of five stars based on 12 reviews. The majority of clients who left feedback (three out of four) noted that treatment was beneficial. "They have been able to help me when I'm in crisis," Drew wrote in a representative review.


Both loved ones surveyed by to date noted that they would recommend the program to others, one moderately and the other highly. Donna, the parent of a former client, emphasized the short-term nature of the facility's treatment in her review, indicating that her child needed more continuing care. She also reported not being active in the family therapy offered at Park Place.

The second family member surveyed by, an 18-to-25-year old female whose brother was in treatment, gave the facility four or five stars for almost all metrics evaluated, including cleanliness, connectivity, administrative and discharge procedures, the staff's level of training and experience, affordability, and family participation. "Guidance and help was also given to the family members that gave insight to addiction," she wrote.


R.S., the one employee surveyed by to date, provided very positive feedback and awarded the facility five out of five stars across all metrics evaluated. A current addiction tech/aid at Park Place Recovery, the staffer highlighted the therapeutic value of the facility's program, also citing specific treatment modalities used, including cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing.

On Indeed[2], LifeSkills as a whole earned an average rating of 3.6 out of five stars based on 18 reviews. The majority of current and former employees who worked at Park Place Recovery (seven out of 10) described the rehab as a caring and well-run facility that offered a tight-knit, family feel.


Along with some insurance providers, the LifeSkills website suggests that Medicaid and Medicare are accepted in certain cases, and CiteHealth reports that a sliding fee scale may be available for clients who qualify.

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.
