The Morton Center

1028 Barret Avenue, Louisville, Kentucky, 40204
The Morton Center believes in treating the whole person — including family members — when it comes to alcohol and drug addiction. The rehab provides outpatient services from three Kentucky-based locations; the Louisville facility provides substance abuse treatment for both adults and adolescents. Through specialized counseling, 12-step recovery techniques, and premiere educational services, The Morton Center guides addicts and alcoholics to fulfilling life in sobriety — and helps their loved ones heal, as well.


  • Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Located in southeastern Louisville, Ky., the Morton Center provides outpatient care at varying intensities for adults, adolescents, children, and families who have been affected by substance misuse, whether their own or a family member's. As such, the center is among the 24.8 percent of addiction treatment facilities in Kentucky that provide some dedicated services for adolescents. The Morton Center is among the 51.8 percent of Kentucky-based rehabs that operate as private nonprofits.


The Morton Center uses 12-Step and evidence-based methods, in a "whole-person" treatment approach that's designed to address clients' emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. The most intensive level of care for adults and adolescents alike is an intensive outpatient program (IOP), positioning the Morton Center among the 36.8 percent of Kentucky-based treatment facilities that provide an IOP.

One parent cited negative interactions with the facility's front office staff, while another wrote that their daughter's behavior improved initially during treatment, then deteriorated dramatically.

However, the other loved one would recommend the facility and gave it four stars for its family participation, counseling options, and ability to treat co-occurring disorders, but just one star for its holistic offerings. "Comprehensive intense outpatient treatment," the anonymous reviewer wrote, though they added: "Quality of group counselling sessions vary depending on therapists assigned."

The employee gave the center perfect five-star ratings for family participation and ability to treat co-occurring disorders, and fours stars for its counseling options.

"A strength was that family was included A downfall was that there were limited funds for patients," they summarized.
