3909 South Wilson Road, Radcliff, Kentucky, 40160
The Adult Chemical Dependency Inpatient Program at Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System is highly structured for adults over the age of 18 with a need for supervised detoxification or for a recovery program. The philosophy of the Adult Chemical Dependency Program centers on the Living in Balance Model. This model heavily focuses on relapse prevention and provides numerous opportunties for improvement with daily living skills through extensive group sessions. Living in Balance helps patients to discover areas of life they have neglected through addiction and gives them the resources to live a sober life.

  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
