Substance Abuse in Kentucky

The drug trade is a rapidly growing problem in Kentucky. With large scale marijuana producers and a dramatic rise in meth production the state is a major player in the drug trade in the US. Kentucky may not have had as serious a substance abuse problem in the past, but with every passing year this is a state that seems to be receiving a lot more substance abuse issues. State officials and law enforcement officers are working hard to undo the damage done by substance abuse, but this is a process that takes time.

  • Cocaine abuse: Cocaine is readily available in the state of Kentucky. Use of the drug is so wide spread in the state that it is easy to find a source of it in bars, on the street, in clubs and even dealt from homes.
  • Heroin abuse: Kentucky does not have much heroin use. When the drug is found in the state it is usually only in the quantities that a user would possess.
  • Meth abuse: In state meth production has become a growing problem for law enforcement agencies. Kentucky has a meth usage rate among teenagers that is significantly higher than the national average.
  • Club Drugs: The drugs Ecstasy, GHB and LSD are all available within the state. The availability of Ecstasy in Kentucky is on the rise, while supplies of GHB and LSD seem to stay at a static rate or even dropped slightly.
  • Marijuana abuse: Marijuana grown in the state is actually Kentucky's largest cash crop, with much of it being grown in national forest areas. Marijuana is easily available in the state and is the drug with the most use in state. The marijuana problem in Kentucky only seems to be becoming worse, especially as it becomes more readily available all across the state.

This is only a sampling of the information available about drug use and substance abuse in the state of Kentucky. One way that people get a better picture of what is happening in Kentucky is by looking at statistics from Kentucky treatment centers. Kentucky treatment centers provide this information to the state and the public to make it more widely known that the state is suffering from a real substance abuse problem.

  • According to statistics provided by Kentucky treatment centers, 21.6 percent of all admissions are related to alcohol use on its own while another 16.6 percent of admissions involve the combination of alcohol abuse with the abuse of another drug.

Detox and Withdrawal

Overcoming a substance abuse problem is not an easy task. In fact, many people try to go through this process alone and they end up failing because of something known as withdrawal. The problem with withdrawal is that your body is essentially working against your best interest by telling you that you need more and more of the substance you are abusing in order to simply feel normal. When you suddenly quit taking the drug cold turkey, your body rebels by throwing a handful of different withdrawal symptoms at you. While the withdrawal process is not typically harmful, it can be so uncomfortable that it drives many people back to the substance abuse they were dealing with before.


Because of this fact, one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to go through professional rehab options to get the help that you need. Kentucky treatment centers will provide you with professional, medical and supportive channels through which you can detox the body and rehabilitate the mind properly and completely. This is the ideal way for you to overcome your substance abuse problem because you will always be surrounded by the help and the support that you need to really and truly overcome your addiction.


The first step in the recovery process is detox. Detox is all about getting the substance out of your system without having to struggle with the uncomfortable side effects of withdrawal. When you are surrounded by medical professionals and counselors, you can go through this process much more smoothly than if you were to go through it alone.


The second step in the recovery process, which occurs after your body is substance free, is the rehabilitation or recovery part of things. Kentucky treatment centers are going to offer a wide variety of different types of rehab and recovery including cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior modification, group counseling, family counseling, one on one counseling, life skills coaching and many others. When you combine different therapies together, the result you get is that you are able to build healthy habits and life skills to deal with the substance abuse problem and the underlying causes behind it.

Treating Substance Abuse

Because all Kentucky treatment facilities are unique, it really will take a little time and effort to choose the right Kentucky treatment programs to meet your needs. Kentucky treatment centers will offer a range of different types of detox and rehabilitation, they will be located in different places throughout the state, and they will be designed to meet a wealth of different needs. Just as your individual substance abuse situation is unique, the Kentucky treatment programs that you consider should also be unique. Remember that there is no single one size fits all solution to recovering from a substance abuse problem. What this means is that you absolutely have to appraise as many different Kentucky treatment centers as you can until you find one that you know is going to deliver the recovery results that you are seeking.

  Here are some things that you will want to consider when appraising Kentucky treatment centers:  
  • Will you best benefit from Kentucky treatment centers offering inpatient care, residential care, outpatient care or something else entirely? The basic format for your rehab program is going to play a vitally essential role in how easily and how effectively you recover. If you cannot put your life on hold right now to recover, choose an outpatient program rather than an inpatient one. If you can set everything aside and focus on complete recovery, then you should choose an inpatient program so you can devote all your time and attention to healing.
  • Will you best benefit from treatment centers in Kentucky offering short term programs or long term programs? Short term programs, such as a 14 day or 30 day program are ideal for some situations but not all. If you have been struggling with substance abuse for a long time, a longer term program is probably going to provide more of what you need. Ask about Kentucky treatment programs and how long they are, and choose the length format that best meets your individual needs.
  • Are their specific needs that you have, that must be met in order for you to recover properly? If you absolutely need group therapy, or family therapy, or healthy habit building, make sure to find Kentucky treatment facilities that offer exactly these things. If you need a rapid detox or a medically assisted detox, around the clock care or your own personal one on one therapy, let the drug rehab center know so that you can receive the accommodations that you seek.
