Call for Help (502) 871-3132
While Kentucky, the “Bluegrass State”, is known for its scenic landscape, horse racing (The Kentucky Derby), and bluegrass music, substance abuse is plaguing the entire state.
Prescription drug addiction and heroin abuse is widespread throughout the state. Heroin use has become such an epidemic over the past decade, that heroin is known by residents as the “cancer of Kentucky”.
According to local and state task forces, close to 100 Kentuckians are losing their lives to heroin every month. However, if you’re a Kentucky resident who is suffering from the devastating effects of drug abuse, recovery is possible.
If you or a loved one is seeking help for your drug or alcohol addiction, call us today at (502) 871-3132. Our admissions counselors are available 24/7.

Prescription Drug Addiction
With pill mill routes stretching from Kentucky to Florida, prescription drugs are a huge problem in the state. Approximately 1,000 people die every year due to overdose of powerful painkillers such as oxycodone and hydrocodone.
According to Forbes Magazine, Kentucky is the fourth most medicated state in the nation and has the sixth highest rate of prescription drug overdose. Not only is the prescription drug problem affecting adults, but it’s also reaching teens and children.
In Kentucky, about one in five teens admit to using prescription pills non-medically. According to the 2010 census, more than 86,000 children became orphans due to overdose of prescription drugs.
Although prescription drug addiction is devastating Kentucky residents, recovery is possible at The Treatment Center. To find out how, call (502) 871-3132 to speak to an admissions counselor today. We are available 24/7.
Heroin Abuse: A Rising Epidemic
Heroin is considered “the cancer of Kentucky” by residents because it is so widespread throughout the state. As the primary drug of choice in Kentucky, the number of admissions for heroin treatment continues to rise at Kentucky drug rehabs. Although treatment admissions are up, the overdose rate has skyrocketed.
According to Trust for America’s Health, overdose deaths have quadrupled in Kentucky since 1999. The northern and southeastern regions of Kentucky have seen an explosion in heroin-related deaths by 550 percent.
Over the past few years, heroin has become more dangerous and fatal because many users don’t know what they are getting. Since heroin is often laced with other chemical substances such as fentanyl and diluted with dirt, sugar, starch, quinine, or poisonous strychnine, overdose
Marijuana and Meth in Kentucky
Marijuana is the No. 1 cash crop in Kentucky. With about a half-million pot plants seized annually – about 1 billion dollars worth in marijuana – Kentucky is the second largest producer of marijuana.
Approximately 41.5 percent of people in the Appalachian region fall below the poverty line. As one of the poorest counties in the country, drug-related violence, marijuana cultivation and meth production has become more of a culture in Appalachian County, and many surrounding counties.
