ABOUT ST. ELIZABETH HEALTHCARE – EDGEWOOD

St. Elizabeth Healthcare operates six main hospitals, including ones in Brighton and Falmouth. The Edgewood hospital in Northern Kentucky provides inpatient detoxification and outpatient programs for adolescents ages 13 to 18 and adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. The Edgewood hospital also offers inpatient and outpatient levels of care for adults with primary psychiatric disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Before beginning treatment, chemically dependent clients undergo an initial individual session with a therapist lasting an hour. If necessary, inpatient detoxification is recommended to help clients through the process of withdrawal safely and comfortably.

Once a client is stabilized, they may be referred to the hospital’s age-specific outpatient programs, which offer individual and group counseling and introduce clients to the 12-step model of recovery. Additionally, St. Elizabeth Healthcare uses a family-based treatment model, which incorporates family counseling and family education into programming.

Intensive outpatient programs involve attending three meetings, three hours per meeting. According to the hospital’s website, outpatient sessions for chemical dependency are limited to 10 clients. Following completion of treatment, clients may enroll in aftercare programs.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The dual diagnosis outpatient programs at St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Edgewood are led by licensed counselors. The hospital’s psychiatric programs are facilitated by clinical therapists and social workers, who are supported by psychiatric nurses and physicians. Registered nurses are also available.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The Edgewood hospital features a 24-bed psychiatric unit for adults and separate 20-bed psychiatric unit for seniors. During inpatient level of care, patients have 24-hour access to nursing and medical attention.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The sole alum polled by Rehabs.com to date rated Edgewood a perfect five stars in all categories measured including holistic treatment offerings, counseling options, and staff's level of experience and training, citing staff as a specific strength. The anonymous alum did cite exercise as a weakness of the facility despite rating it five stars. They wrote: "The staff is awesome the time I spent there was definitely worth my while. My leg is all better now."

On Google, 30 reviewers to date rated St. Elizabeth Edgewood as a hospital an average 3.2 out of five stars.[1] Reviewers complained of poor billing and staff care, yet none addressed the hospital's behavioral health services specifically.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

One loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date rated Edgewood a perfect five stars in connectivity and visitor policy, counseling options, and staff's level of experience and training. The anonymous loved one rated the facility's exercise and leisure options four stars. They cited the length of stay as a weakness and counseling as a strength, writing: "The staff was well trained and extremely kind."

FINANCING

St. Elizabeth Healthcare accepts most private insurance plans, as well as Medicaid and Medicare. Room and board for behavioral health services cost $2,416.59 per day, presumably before insurance.
