Review by Contributors


Founded in 1967, Pathways now operates more than 50 facilities in ten Kentucky counties. serving individuals struggling with addiction, mental health disorders, and/or intellectual or developmental disabilities. Located in southern Louisa, in northeastern Kentucky, the Pathways of Louisa facility provides outpatient care and an intake point for individuals who require residential care.


Pathways' approach to treatment is designed to improve self-esteem, emotional maturity, and responsibility, and help clients to function at a higher level, as well as ceasing the addictive behavior. Few specific details are available on the organization's treatment modalities, though the residential facility does use the research-based Minnesota Model championed at Hazelden facilities, which is built on the establishment of a humane, therapeutic treatment community.

The Louisa center provides outpatient care for individuals struggling with substance use disorder. The program includes individual, group, and family counseling, as well as educational sessions about the nature of addiction and recovery. Clients also receive referrals to local self-help group and vocational services, positioning the center among the 40.1 percent of facilities in Kentucky that provide employment counseling or training for their clients.

Pathways also provides an intensive outpatient program (IOP), a treatment type offered at 36.8 percent of Kentucky-based facilities, though it's not clear whether this is provided at the Louisa facility. The IOP offers several long sessions of group counseling per week, for those in need of more structured addiction treatment than outpatient care alone.

Other centers in the network offer detox and short-term residential care lasting 10 to 14 days. Specialist services offered at other centers include treatment for dual diagnosis, women's services, victim advocacy services, DUI assessments and treatment, and addiction treatment for adolescents, plus KIDS NOW, a program for women at risk of substance misuse during pregnancy.


Staff includes a psychiatrist, a psychiatric nurse, and master's-level counselors. The single individual polled by to date gave the center five out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not yet received feedback from alumni of Pathways in Louisa, and neither do approved secondary sites offer any review coverage.

Pathways' website notes that the facility accepts both public and private insurance, and CiteHealth indicated that this includes both Medicaid and Medicare, which are accepted at 64.6 and 39.3 percent of Kentucky facilities, respectively. Pathways also offers a sliding fee scale. The single individual polled by to date on the center's affordability gave it five out of five stars.
