Cumberland Hall Hospital is a psychiatric hospital founded in 1987 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. In 2012, they opened a brand-new 97-bed facility that provides inpatient treatment services for adults and adolescents suffering from a variety of mental health issues, including addiction and co-occurring disorders. At the new facility, which is just five miles from the Fort Campbell Army base, Cumberland Hall Hospital treats active duty military clients and civilians in separate wings.
Accommodations and Food
At Cumberland Hall Hospital, both the military and civilian adult residential treatment programs have a 28-bed capacity, while the adolescent substance abuse program has 24 beds. The facility is new and modern, with sleek furniture, lots of natural light and dove grey walls. Gender-specific rooms are shared, each with their own bathroom, and are sparsely furnished with twin beds, nightstands and bulletin boards to display unframed family photos. The military wing embraces military structure and protocol and has a dedicated staff with military backgrounds. Cumberland Hall Hospital treats those with co-occurring disorders in a separate unit. There are also six beds for children who require dual diagnosis support.
Three nutritious meals and two snacks are served daily. Residents eat in shifts, with those from the same unit, in the hospital’s cafe. Menu options include entrée choices like roasted chicken or beef chips, with sides such as mashed potatoes and fresh seasonal veggies. A salad bar stocked with fresh leafy greens is provided during lunch and dinner. Meals are planned by a certified nutritionist and the hospital accommodates those with special dietary needs and religious food requirements. Smoking breaks are designated throughout the day.

Cumberland Hall Hospital’s addiction treatment approach for adults, adolescents and military clients uses evidence-based methods, specifically CBT, in conjunction with the 12 steps. Upon intake, residents receive a two- to three-hour comprehensive assessment and an individualized treatment plans. On-site detox treatment typically lasts three to five days and residents are monitored 24/7 by doctors and nurses.

There is only one outpatient program—a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for active duty military personnel. Clients attend treatment in the military wing Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
Cumberland Hall Hospital provides Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to ease withdrawals from opiates and alcohol, as well as medication management for those with co-occurring disorders.
