  • 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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


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.


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.


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.


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.

“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."
