Louisville Alcohol and Drug Use Statistics

Substance use disorder (addiction to drugs and alcohol) is a public health crisis in Louisville.5 Substance misuse is an issue that affects individuals, families, and communities. Statistics show that addiction is a pervasive issue that affects every area of Louisville:5,6

Drug and alcohol use n aren’t limited to Louisville. The entire state of Kentucky is affected by this crisis: 15% of Kentucky residents reported using drugs in the last year, and 15.8% of Kentucky residents reported engaging in excessive drinking in 2021.7,8

Not everyone who uses drugs and alcohol is addicted. However, these statistics indicate the troublesome burden that substance use results in. Research shows that repeated alcohol or drug misuse can lead to substance use disorders.9 People who develop substance use disorders experience a change in how their brain is wired that causes intense cravings for drugs and alcohol. This makes it difficult to stop drinking or using drugs on willpower alone.9

Drug rehabs in Louisville and alcohol rehabs in Louisville provide treatments for substance use disorders to help you or your loved one overcome addiction.

Cost of Rehab in Louisville

The cost of drug rehab in Louisville and alcohol rehab in Louisville can vary, depending on the rehab center and the treatments a person is given. Several factors play a role in the cost of rehab, including:

Understandably, inpatient (residential) programs cost more because you will live, eat, and sleep at the rehab facility for the duration of the program.10 You are there 24 hours a day, seven days a week while in the program, which requires the facility to have staff on duty around-the-clock to provide support and treatments.

If you have health insurance, at least some of the costs of rehab and other addiction treatments should be covered by your health plan.11 Call the number on the back of your insurance card to inquire about your plan’s coverage for substance use disorder treatments. You may want to ask for a list of rehab centers in Louisville that are in-network with your health insurance provider to ensure insurance coverage is provided.

Low-Cost and Free Rehabs in Louisville

About 30% of people who need addiction treatment did not get into treatment because they do not have healthcare coverage and/or could not afford the cost of treatment on their own.10

In 2020, 12.28% of Kentucky residents with substance use disorders did not get the addiction treatment they needed.12

Low-cost and free rehabs in Louisville receive government funding to help provide addiction treatments for low-income individuals who need help paying for rehab.13 Some low-income Kentucky residents may qualify for the state’s voucher program that helps cover the costs of residential treatment for drug-related addictions.14

A wide variety of treatments are available for people affected by drug and alcohol use. State-funded rehabs may provide the following treatments in Kentucky:

How Do I Pay for Addiction Treatment in Louisville?

Free and low-cost rehabs often have a waitlist because the demand is higher than the number of spaces available. If you want to get into addiction treatment right away but don’t have health insurance or the financial means to pay out-of-pocket, there are other ways to help you cover the costs.

Choose a Program that Offers Payment Plans

Many rehab centers in Louisville provide payment plans for people who cannot afford to pay for the total cost of addiction treatment in one lump sum. Payment plans are typically paid in monthly installments, like the way you pay your monthly rent and car payment. Some rehab programs give people a grace period (e.g., six months) after they have completed treatment before payment installments begin. The grace period gives you a chance to get settled in your community, get a steady job, and establish yourself before payments begin.

Apply for a Rehab Scholarship

Some Louisville drug rehabs and alcohol rehabs offer scholarships to help people unable to pay for the cost of treatment get the help they need. Scholarships help increase access to treatment. The specifics of the types of scholarships offered, who qualifies for the scholarships, how much of the cost is covered, and how many scholarships are available at any given time vary from program to program. Call the rehab center you are considering to ask about scholarship opportunities and how to apply.

Find a Sliding Scale Rehab Program

A sliding scale is a flexible fee system that determines the cost of addiction treatment based on certain factors, such as a person’s financial situation and their current ability to pay out-of-pocket. Many alcohol rehabs in Louisville and drug rehabs in Louisville offer sliding scale fees to increase both affordability and accessibility for people who need to access lifesaving addiction treatments.

While each rehab that offers sliding scale fee systems will vary, most consider certain factors to determine how much you will be expected to pay for treatment, such as your total household income and the extent of insurance coverage you have. Most rehabs that accept sliding scale payment options are willing to work with you no matter what your current financial health looks like.

Popular Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers in Louisville

With so many alcohol and drug rehab centers in Louisville, it can be overwhelming to narrow down your choices and find the one that would best suit your needs. We’ve put together a list of some of the leading rehab centers in Louisville to help you in your search.

The Corner of Hope Recovery Center is a faith-based Christian rehab that offers a full spectrum of addiction treatment care, including detox treatment, inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, and sober living homes for people with substance use disorders and dual diagnoses (mental health conditions along with addiction).

Financial aid is available to those who need it.

Addiction treatment programs geared toward men, women, young adults, military personnel, and those with dual diagnoses are available. Aftercare support and outpatient rehab are also provided at this joint-commission accredited rehab center.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab in Louisville

As you consider the type of addiction treatment you want to receive, spend some time considering whether an inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab in Louisville will be best to help you recover.

What is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab centers in Louisville, also known as residential treatment, provide a place for you to live, sleep and eat. Inpatient rehabs are highly structured, and your day will be filled with activities that will help you learn about addiction, healthy coping mechanisms, and how to identify the cause(s) of your addiction and harmful patterns of behavior to overcome them.16

On your first day at a Louisville inpatient rehab, you will complete an intake assessment, where treatment specialists will ask you about:

This information will be used to design your personalized treatment plan that will help meet your needs. Your treatment plan can be adjusted as needed once you and the rehab staff discover what works best for you (and what doesn’t). Residential rehabs are both long-term and short-term. Some programs last 30 days, while others can last a few months.16

Some Louisville inpatient rehabs offer holistic treatment options, such as acupuncture and meditation classes. Luxury and executive rehab centers may offer extra amenities, such as massage therapy, equine therapy, and gourmet meals.

Every inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Louisville provides different treatment offers, but most will include a combination of treatments, including:17

Individual therapy (e.g., cognitive-behavioral therapy/CBT)

What is Outpatient Rehab?

Outpatient programs provide treatment in a rehab center, hospital, clinics, and community centers during a certain time of day. You can live at home while in an outpatient program, but most programs vary regarding how long they last and the time commitment involved each day/week. Depending on the program, you may be able to attend to work and family responsibilities during the day and attend your outpatient program in the evenings.

Louisville outpatient treatment options include:18

People who attend outpatient programs in Louisville may find it beneficial to receive other forms of addiction support. Twelve-step programs such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) may be helpful for those who are looking for a faith-based approach. SMART recovery is another peer support group that may be beneficial while enrolled in an outpatient program (and after).

Keep in mind that there is no single treatment approach that will work for everybody, and the type of treatment you seek will depend on your personal preferences and needs.

Benefits of Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Benefits to inpatient addiction treatment include:

Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Treatment

Outpatient addiction treatment in Louisville has many benefits, including:

Types of Drug and Alcohol Rehabs in Louisville

Drug and alcohol rehabs in Louisville provide a judgment-free, safe environment to support your recovery throughout your treatment. Some rehab centers provide services for certain populations, such as veterans. Others take a different approach to treatment, so you can find a rehab center that aligns with your values.

Holistic Rehab

Holistic rehabs offer addiction treatment programs that focus on treating the whole person, including focusing on their emotional, physical, and social well-being.19, p1 These programs promote healing by addressing all these aspects in connection with addiction and its consequences. Holistic rehabs combine standard treatments with holistic approaches, such as meditation, yoga, massage therapy, and acupuncture.

Christian and Faith-Based Rehab

Faith-based rehab centers in Louisville weave a religious and spiritual element into aspects of addiction treatments to address a person’s medical and spiritual needs.20 Spiritual advisors are often on staff, such as Christian pastors, to provide guidance, counseling, and spiritual teachings. Many people affiliated with a certain faith prefer to attend these rehabs because they find strength and peace through their faith.

Luxury Rehab

Luxury rehab centers in Louisville provide standard, evidence-based addiction treatments in a luxurious, private, and comfortable environment. Many luxury rehabs boast a low staff-to-patient ratio to ensure each client gets individualized attention.

Alternative therapies are often the norm in these rehab centers, and many offer meditation, yoga, and acupuncture. Staff-to-patient ratios are often lower, ensuring you get more individualized attention. Many luxury rehabs are in beautiful settings, such as on the beach or nestled in the mountains. Most offer high-value amenities, including full gym facilities, gourmet meals, aromatherapy, private rooms, and more.

Executive Rehab

Executive rehab centers are designed for high-level professionals, such as Chief Executive Offers, for whom getting away from work responsibilities is often difficult. Executive rehabs, unlike standard rehabs, often allow patients to have access to their computers, phones, and conference rooms so they can attend to their professional duties in some capacity while enrolled in rehab. Travel for work meetings may be allowed, and most offer private rooms. These rehabs often promise a high level of privacy and security to protect the identity of their clients.

Dual Diagnosis Rehab

When a person has a substance use disorder and a co-occurring mental health condition, this is known as a “dual diagnosis”. Many people with a dual diagnosis turn to drugs and alcohol as a way of coping with the symptoms of their mental health condition and “self-medicate”.21

Dual diagnosis rehab centers treat both substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders to improve a person’s chance of a full, long-term recovery. Many specialized dual diagnosis treatment centers offer both inpatient and outpatient programs.

Depression and Addiction

Depression is a serious mental health condition that goes far beyond “the blues” or feeling sad from time to time. It is a pervasive feeling of sadness that often goes together with addiction. About 43% of people who enter treatment for substance use disorder for non-medical use of prescription painkillers have a dual diagnosis, particularly depression.22

Anxiety and Addiction

Statistics show that people with anxiety are twice as likely to struggle with drug and/or alcohol addiction compared to those without anxiety.21 Rehab programs in Louisville can address both anxiety and substance use disorder if you tell them you have an anxiety diagnosis during your intake assessment.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Addiction

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can occur after a traumatic event and cause lifelong struggles with mental health. Traumatic events, such as exposure to war, can lead to PTSD. Nearly 1 in 3 veterans with PTSD also have substance use disorder.23 Rehabs in Louisville that provide dual diagnosis treatments can address PTSD and substance use disorder at the same time. Some have addiction treatment programs specifically designed for veterans.

Bipolar Disorder and Addiction

About 1 in 4 people with bipolar disorder (or another serious mental health condition) also struggle with drug and alcohol addiction.21 Louisville rehabs that provide dual diagnosis treatments can help address both bipolar disorder and addiction simultaneously, which may increase a person’s chance of long-term recovery.

Personality Disorders and Addiction

Anywhere from 35 to 73% of people with personality disorders seek treatment for addictions.24 More people with a personality disorder turn to drugs rather than alcohol, though both substances are misused by this population.24 Dual diagnosis rehabs in Louisville can provide treatments for both addiction and personality disorders to help support a person’s long-term recovery.

Types of Addiction Therapy Used in Rehab

Addiction is a complex, treatable disease that affects a person’s brain and behavior. There is no “one size fits all” approach to addiction that will work for everybody. Many types of addiction therapy are provided in rehab, and the types of therapy you receive will depend on your needs and the therapy offerings at the Louisville rehab you choose to attend.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps people recognize, avoid, and cope with the situations that are most likely to tempt them to return to drugs and alcohol. CBT was developed to prevent relapse when treating problem drinking and was later adapted for individuals who misuse drugs.25

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy method used to treat people with a dual diagnosis. This form of therapy focuses on validating and accepting uncomfortable feelings, rather than denying or turning away from them. Patients learn ways to cope with these feelings instead of turning to drugs and alcohol to numb them.26

Motivational Enhancement Therapy

Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) helps people feel motivated to engage with their treatment program, rather than feel ambivalent about stopping drug and alcohol use. This therapeutic approach helps internally motivate a person and get them involved and committed to their recovery process.27

Contingency Management

Contingency management (CM) programs provide tangible rewards for positive behaviors, such as abstaining from drug and alcohol use. Studies show that CM programs are highly effective at creating engagement in rehab programs, and promoting drug and alcohol abstinence.25 Vouchers are given to participants, which can be exchanged for movie passes, restaurants, cash prizes, and other rewards.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is central to most rehab programs in Louisville. This type of therapy allows people struggling with addiction to connect with peers for support, discussion, and a sense of camaraderie. When combined with individual therapy, group therapy can be highly effective in helping people achieve long-term recovery and make meaningful connections with peers. 25, p36

Family Therapy

Family therapy brings all members of a family together to help address their interactions and improve their communication. Healthy strategies are taught in family therapy to help people stay in recovery by teaching family members how to be healthy support, rather than a source of stress. Family therapy is an excellent way to ensure people with substance use disorders get support from their loved ones.25

Should I Travel to Louisville for Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

If you don’t live in Louisville, you may wonder if you should travel to the city for alcohol and drug rehab. The choice is yours, but here are some reasons you may want to consider Louisville for addiction treatment:

Some people prefer to travel to a different city or state for addiction treatment to escape the day-to-day stresses and triggers they experience at home. If you stay home, you may find yourself tempted to reach out to people who encourage you to use drugs or alcohol.

Or you may be reminded of a traumatic memory or see a local place that makes you crave substances you are trying to avoid. By traveling to Louisville, you remove these challenges and can focus wholly on your treatment program and recovery.

Neighborhoods in Louisville to Consider for Treatment

Neighborhoods in Louisville each have their own culture, vibe, activities, and demographic. If you’re not familiar with the city, here are some Louisville neighborhoods you may want to consider for treatment.

Old Louisville

With the largest collection of restored Victorian homes in the entire U.S., the Old Louisville neighborhood boasts some of the most beautifully preserved homes and rich architecture in the city.28 Amongst the homes are mature magnolia and oak trees, excellent dining options, quaint shops, museums, and neighborhood parks that hold various community events throughout the year.

NuLu

NuLu, the East Market District of Louisville’s downtown area, is best known for its specialty stores, art galleries, antique shops, and unique local restaurants.29 This hip neighborhood holds a monthly First Friday Hop street party, complete with live music, art shows, shopping, and street food to bring the community out and enjoy all the area has to offer.

Clifton & Crescent Hill

Louisville’s Clifton and Crescent Hill neighborhood, centered along the main thoroughfare Frankfort Avenue, is charming.30 Take a stroll through the area to see the beautifully crafted historic homes and buildings, tree-lined streets, upscale dining, and locally-owned shops. A peaceful walking trail through the Crescent Hill Reservoir is a must-see for nature lovers and history buffs alike.

Alcohol and Drug Laws in Louisville

Casey’s Law

Casey’s Law is a legal proceeding that provides a court order to place a person into an addiction treatment program involuntarily.31 This law provides a way to intervene with someone unable to recognize their need for addiction treatment.31 Parents, relatives, and friends can petition the court on behalf of the person with substance use disorder and ask for a court order to place the person in a treatment program.31

Jefferson County Drug Court

The Jefferson County Drug Court is an alternative sentencing program available for non-violent offenders whose crimes stem from substance misuse.32 Participants can enter the program rather than go to jail or in lieu of probation revocation. Drug Court aims to break the cycle of substance use, addiction, and crime by requiring defendants to attend an addiction treatment program to help encourage their recovery and reduce crime rates.

Kentucky Good Samaritan Law

The Kentucky Good Samaritan Law states that anyone who calls 911 for help for themselves or another person who is experiencing a drug overdose cannot be charged or prosecuted for possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia, but only if they remain with that person in need of help before first responders arrive on the scene.33
