About Stepworks Recovery Centers, Elizabethtown

Philisophy

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.

Specialization

Medical Detoxification

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.

Residential Treatment

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.

ABOUT STEPWORKS RECOVERY CENTERS, ELIZABETHTOWN

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 misuse. It is one of five facilities operated in Kentucky by Stepworks Recovery Centers. According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 5.6 percent of rehabs offer detox in a residential setting.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Clients receive an initial assessment to determine which type of service would work best for them. Both alcohol and drug detox are available. A trained team monitors clients’ progress during detox. For clients entering the residential program, they may spend the first day or two in detox.

Rooted in 12-Step, the residential program is 30 days long, making Stepworks one of 40 (11.1 percent) rehabs in Kentucky that offer a long-term (30+ days) residential treatment program.

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.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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. Stepworks is certified by CARF, an accreditation held by 23.7 percent of rehabs in Kentucky.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Clients live in shared rooms in a 32-bed facility. 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

The seven alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date provided mixed reviews. On the positive end of the spectrum, alum A. claimed that the staff was nonjudgmental and compassionate, while alum B. shared that she"loves" them and encouraged staff to "keep up the good work."

The majority, however, took issue with both particular staff members and staff in general. Two alumni each mentioned that staff were "unprofessional"; one anonymous alum claimed in a representative review that "If you have problems with another person, the staff doesn't handle the problem appropriately I definitely wouldn't go back to this place."

Reviews on Google, where the facility holds an average rating of 4.1 out of five stars based on 36 reviews, was far more positive.[1] Numerous reviewers praised the facility's treatment staff. In a representative comment, alum De wrote, "I am very happy with the treatment and structure I received here. The staff members are AMAZING!!!!!! I highly recommend Stepworks to anyone seeking help."

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Three loved ones submitted commentary to Rehabs.com to date; two were positive and the other was negative. One of the positive reviewers gave the center three out of five stars for its holistic options, and four or five stars for all 14 of the other evaluated treatment metrics, including its overall effectiveness, treatment for co-occurring disorders, and counseling options.

“Caring staff, effective treatment,” this anonymous reviewer wrote in representative commentary. “They gave my friend her best chance at repairing her life and moving forward in a positive manner.” However, the negative reviewer wrote: "Stay 31 days and they won't let she graduate and don't let she call anyone to pick her up she just tuck off walking."

    I got more help from the other clients there. The nurse staff weren't very professional. The food was barely enough. When I was leaving the discovered that they gave all my belongings away and told me I should have made sure that my name was spelled right on my stuff. If you have any medical problems don't go there. Do not go there. Hey do t care about sobriety they care about getting paid

    This is one of the worst treatment centers I have ever visited. I went there almost 4 years ago and (stayed sober since) have attended one and visited many since... My detox was terrible and a Doctor never checked on me. They just left me in bed. Where I shared a room and bathroom with ELEVEN other girls! The place was not clean at all and the staff really didn\'t care about it. I was so scared detoxing and everyone pretty much just told me to get over it. ...They were not supportive or comforting at all. Thank goodness I didn\'t drink, continued with AA and left to go to a real treatment center (Hazelden in center city Minnesota) and was able to stay sober. Terrible place I do not recommend at all. Hopefully this place will not be anyone\'s first experience of the 12 steps because they are likely to run from sobriety after this experience and not come back. Also it was the patients responsibility to cook all the other patients too...

    It being a 30 day treatment program, the staff thoroughly covered steps one and two Hardly any ways to actually talk to family, except on visiting days The living space was very small It was very expensive to get in If you have problems with another person, the staff doesn't handle the problem appropriately I definitely wouldn't go back to this place

    They not only helped me, they helped my family understand. They helped repair important relationships and really tried to help me build a support system before I left the safety of the facility.
