Located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, clients have access to numerous other resources in the large city to aid them during their recovery. LifeSkills offers both an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and a residential treatment program for substance abuse.
Accommodations and Food
The accommodations for the residential substance abuse treatment program are held in a facility called Park Place Recovery Center, which has room for 20 clients and offers myriad resources. There are shared rooms and private rooms available. There is a living area with plenty of couches and a cable TV as well as outside areas for recreation. There are shared bathrooms for men and for women and a full laundry facility. Meals are served three times a day and cater to dietary restrictions.
Treatment and Staff
The LifeSkills residential program is highly structured and incorporates a variety of different treatment modalities. Each client must go through an initial evaluation and assessment to help form an individualized treatment plan. The plan details which forms of therapy the client should frequent and topics of focus. Clients attend CBT-based group therapy twice a day and individual therapy twice a week. When clients are not in individual or group sessions they are in education group, family sessions, issue-specific groups, recreational therapy or they are attending a local 12-step group. The length of the program is different for every client and may change depending on their progress.
The IOP offers the same treatment modalities and therapies to clients as the residential program; however, the structure of the treatment plan is more lenient. The IOP is six hours of group therapy per week as well as weekly family sessions and individual sessions, if desired. The aftercare program offered by LifeSkills is free of charge for clients who successfully complete the IOP.
In addition to the IOP and residential substance abuse treatment programs, LifeSkills, Inc. also offers a variety of other services to clients and community members. There are outpatient counseling programs for a variety of mental health issues; children and adolescent services; prevention and education programs; vocational services; community living services and aiding services for individuals with developmental disabilities.
LifeSkills, Inc. offers the option for someone in need of help with addiction to do so on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Both programs are highly individualized and implement a variety of evidence-based therapies and group sessions to give each individual a well-rounded foundation for recovery.
