Rehabs 360 Guide


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 Rehabs.com, 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.
