ABOUT CENTERSTONE ADDICTION RECOVERY CENTER
Formerly known as the Jefferson Alcohol and Drug Abuse Center (JADAC), the Centerstone Addiction Recovery Center is an 80-bed treatment facility that provides medical detox, inpatient care, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), which are available at 36.8 percent of Kentucky-based facilities, and aftercare for adults struggling with chemical dependency.
Located in central Louisville, Ky. and a division of Centerstone Kentucky — a regional treatment provider with facilities in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, and Tennessee — the center is among the 28.4 percent of Kentucky facilities that offer specialized programming for pregnant clients. Centerstone is among the 51.8 percent of Kentucky-based addiction treatment centers that operate as private nonprofits.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Centerstone adheres to the 12-step model of addiction and recovery. In addition, the facility utilizes medication-assisted treatment(MAT), offering medications alongside counseling to address the physiological components of addiction. Medications used at the facility include buprenorphine (which is used at 16.2 percent of Kentucky-based facilities), naltrexone, mood stabilizers, and anti-depressants.
Upon admission, clients undergo an initial substance use assessment to determine the most appropriate level of care. Clients who need to detox receive medical monitoring, lab work, and a medical exam, plus the possibility of medication-assisted treatment using Suboxone, for clients struggling with opioid addiction.
For clients who require residential or intensive care longer than detox, there are two options. An inpatient program offers short-term care, while a residential program, also offered from the hospital's location, offers long-term care for eight to nine months, or even longer. Both programs use individual, group, and family counseling as well as MAT, when appropriate.
Once a client completes an inpatient program, clinicians provide discharge planning and referrals to community services. The center also offers a specialized case management service for pregnant women called Project Link. In some cases, clinicians may encourage residential clientele to use the facility’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) as “step-down” aftercare service. IOPs are offered in the daytime or the evening, to suit a variety of schedules.
The center employs a multidisciplinary staff of physicians, nurses, licensed professional alcohol and drug counselors, case managers, and a support staff. The 13 individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff were mostly impressed.
