Versailles Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

The county seat of Woodford County, Kentucky, Versailles is named for the city in France; however, it’s pronounced differently. Instead of the French pronunciation of “Ver-sigh,” this American counterpart is pronounced “Ver-sails.” Long a topic of discussion for locals and tourists who come to visit the town, Versailles is also famous for its curation of thoroughbred horses. Over 20 thoroughbred farms are located in the small town, which has also made it a popular spot for filmmaking. For example, Secretariat was filmed here. Versailles is also famous as the home of Woodford Reserve whiskey.

Versailles is a quaint, small town, but its proximity to larger cities such as Lexington has allowed a drug problem to seep in over the years. In Woodford County, health officials have recently been exploring a needle exchange to help cut down on drug-related deaths and overdoses, but those who are struggling should know that there are other ways to find help when they’re hurting.

Over 1,500 people are arrested in Woodford County, Kentucky on a yearly basis, but jail and prison time does not often help a person who’s struggling with addiction. There are various treatment options at Versailles drug treatment facilities and Versailles alcohol treatment facilities, as well as in nationally known centers such as The Recovery Village. When the chips are down, struggling people should know there are other options beyond needle exchanges and jail. Heroin and other opioids are the most significant problems in Versailles as of 2016 and 2017.

You’re not alone in this struggle.

    Versailles Residential Treatment Programs

    One of the most common types of treatment is residential treatment. It’s often referred to as inpatient treatment, however, these residential campuses rarely resemble a hospital setting. You’ll be on “campus” for an agreed-upon period of time, such as 30 days. While here, you get 24-hour, round-the-clock mental and medical care, as well as a caring staff that’s always there to listen when you need them. Therapies commonly include group and individual therapy, with the focus often being on CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). You may also have exercise, swimming, art and music therapy and other recreational activities.

    Versailles Partial Hospitalization Programs

    A partial hospitalization program includes some of the benefits from residential treatment, typically the different types of therapies. Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) are a great choice for those who simply can’t leave their job or home life for 30 days or more. Typically, you’ll attend a program several days a week for four to five hours a day. PHP programs are often three to five days per week, but are highly flexible, with many programs offering evening therapies. Often, there will be a psychiatrist on staff to help you monitor medication and any mental health complaints.

    Versailles Outpatient Treatment Programs

    An outpatient program is very similar to PHP, but it meets less times per week. You may have one to two sessions, for one to two days a week. Typically, an outpatient program will require you to attend group and individual therapy, to stay sober while in treatment and to be medication compliant. Patients are often released from residential treatment into an outpatient program to help elongate and continue their treatment, but many have also found sobriety simply by attending PHP or outpatient treatment.

There are many resources in Versailles to help you put down drugs and alcohol for good. If you’re struggling, the first step is really picking up the phone to ask for help. A knowledgeable and caring person can help you decide which course of treatment is right for you. It’s not punishment or prison – and you can always make your own choices. Now is a good time to be in charge of your own recovery and take the next right step.

Versailles Drug & Alcohol Detox Centers

If you’ve been heavily using alcohol or opiates, you may have to be detoxified before entering treatment. Detox is a safe way to stop using drugs and alcohol under medical supervision. Heavy, daily drinkers and heroin/opiate users will experience withdrawal when they stop. Not only is detox a way to withdrawal comfortably, withdrawal can be dangerous and even deadly in some cases, depending on the pattern of use. Often, a Versailles drug detox or Versailles alcohol detox center will be housed in a residential treatment program. Detox typically takes three to seven days, depending on the frequency of use. In detox, you have round-the-clock care and medication to ensure your detox is as painless and safe as possible.

Recovery Meetings Near You in Versailles

Many addicts and alcoholics have considered meetings an important part of their aftercare. By going to regular meetings after completing treatment at a Versailles drug rehab center or a Versailles alcohol rehab center, you can help avoid temptation as well as the “people, places and things” that may have contributed to your addiction. Many suffering folks have found lifelong friends by entering the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or other recovery meetings. Recovery is a process, and a lifelong one at that – and those that make meetings typically have continued success, even if there is an occasional bump in the road. With the help of others’ support and kindness, you can help avoid relapse, living a life that’s happy, joyous and free well after you leave treatment. Below are some recovery meeting options in your area and in areas nearby to Versailles.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is often considered the first viable treatment for addicts and alcoholics. In the early twentieth century, alcoholism and addiction was often misunderstood. Problem drinkers would be thrown in jail or committed to sanitariums and mental institutions. Doctors did not know how to treat alcoholics. In the 1930s, two men came together, realizing that they kept each other sober as they helped each other recover. Through this process, the 12 Steps were born. Penned by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob, AA is now a cornerstone of many a person’s recovery, offering hope where there once was none. As the most popular type of recovery group, AA now has meetings in nearly every town in the entire world.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

After AA gained in popularity, it soon became obvious that there was not a place for suffering addicts to convene. While alcoholism and drug addiction are very similar, there needed to be meetings specifically for addicts, so that they felt more comfortable. Narcotics Anonymous was born in the 1950s, giving hope to suffering addicts so that they can recover as well. The meeting format and literature is very similar, and this group is also based upon spiritual principles and the 12 Steps. However, it’s focused on the addict as opposed to the alcoholic. There are typically several NA meetings in a city or town, full of members with open arms, ready to help the next struggling person.

SMART Recovery Meetings

For years, 12-step meetings were predominant when it came to recovery meetings. However, in modern times, there are many more options when it comes to recovery and meetings. Instead of being based on spiritual principles and the 12 Steps, SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training) Recovery is based more upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In treatment, many of those entering recovery experience CBT in the form of group therapy; however, SMART takes it a bit further, incorporating it into daily life. SMART is just beginning to gain in popularity and recovery success, and while it may be tough to find a meeting in more remote areas, you can always begin one on your own and help others in need. More and more SMART meetings are sprouting up on a daily basis.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

The alcoholic or addict is not the only person that suffers through an active addiction. If you’re close to someone who is actively drinking alcoholically or using drugs, you’re probably experience hurt and pain as well. The good news is, there is help for friends and family of active addicts and alcoholics. Al-Anon was founded by Lois Wilson, Bill Wilson’s wife. After he created Alcoholics Anonymous, Lois created Al-Anon so that wives and other family members could have a place to go and talk about their feelings and issues. Today, Al-Anon is worldwide, and its sister organization, Nar-Anon, was created for those who have a loved one in the throes of drug addiction.
