Park Place Recovery Center is the addiction treatment arm of Lifeskills—an impressive nonprofit organization that receives funding from the Kentucky Department for Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Addiction Services, as well as grants, third-party payers, industrial contacts and local support. Its business model is to serve the community with a range of health services, including a suicide hotline, a free 24/7 walk-in mental health clinic and addiction services with outpatient and inpatient treatment.
Accommodations and Food
PPRC is a 16-bed facility geared towards helping men and women recover from chronic chemical addiction. Although the length of stay varies depending on need and insurance coverage (some insurance plans cover as little as three-to-five days) the maximum stay at PPRC is 21 days. This is not based upon a projected model of treatment as much as it is the length of time the state will fund them. PPRC deals with chemical addiction recovery with a special focus on dual diagnosis clients and women who are pregnant or dealing with postpartum issues.
All meals for PPRC residents are provided by the facility and have been described as basic but good American cuisine.
Treatment and Staff
Although PPRC is not a detox, and is unable to accommodate clients withdrawing from severe alcohol and benzodiazepine abuse, it does offer some temporary medication to ease the transition into sobriety, if needed.
Upon admission, clients are assigned to one of three therapists on staff whom they will meet with regularly for therapy and to monitor their progress. The program at PPRC is firmly rooted in the 12 steps and the community in and around the Bowling Green area supports this model, with over 70 AA meetings a week in South Central Kentucky alone—many of which clients of PPRC will attend as part of the program. Residents are typically required to have sponsors and to have begun working the steps in order to graduate from the program.
Rules at PPRC are pretty standard for a rather strict facility. No electronics are allowed during the three-week treatment. However, communications with family and loved ones is permitted and encouraged and each resident is allowed 15 minutes of phone time per day. On the weekends, clients are allowed two 15-minute blocks of time—not to be used consecutively—to talk on the facility’s landline.
PPRC is supported by a plethora of sober living homes in the area, as well as a strong and tight-knit recovery “family” of locals addict who are successfully staying clean and sober. These long-term residential facilities are designed for the five-to-11 months following initial treatment and are strongly encouraged and recommended by PPRC. These recovery homes are very affordable, starting at $225 for intake and then only $100 a week going forward. But much like PPRC, there are requirements to qualify—like attending 90 12-step meetings within the first 90 days of residency and acquiring gainful employment the first two weeks.
Overall, Park Place Recovery Center heavily relies on the foundation of 12-step recovery and does not offer a significant amount of evidence-based treatment. However, for those who are seeking a community-oriented facility that has a strong network of sober support available after the completion of treatment might do well here.
