Pathways, Inc. of Elliott County


pathways-inc-of-elliott-countyPathways, Inc. of Elliott County Review

Serving 10 counties in eastern Kentucky with over 40 different locations and 500 employees, Pathways, Inc. is an expansive company that has been around since 1967. Their facility offers a variety of basic, 12-step oriented recovery options including detox, inpatient, outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), with added focuses on behavioral health, developmental disabilities and women’s issues.

It should be noted that Pathways’ detox services are exclusive to the Ashland branch, with residential treatment only available through the adolescent program in Mount Sterling and the men’s program in Morehead. It is primarily an outpatient organization, and the Elliott County branch serves as a good example for that programming.

Treatment and Staff

Pathways Elliott County is located in Sandy Hook, Kentucky, and for the most part offers individual counseling for court-mandated attendees (though voluntary clients are equally welcome). It does not offer dual diagnosis care—instead, each client enrolls in a program focused on either substance abuse or mental health issues, and then meets with either a CADC or mental health counselor, respectively. The less intensive outpatient track features hour-long therapy sessions once a week. After three months, that number decreases to once every two weeks, with typical programs lasting about seven months.

The IOP track is designed for those in need of a more rigorous program, and is composed primarily of group therapy. Clients meet with their therapists six hours a week, and each must complete a minimum of 24 sessions in order to graduate. Each session lasts three hours. Additionally, Pathways also offers a group therapy-based program specifically for court-ordered DUIs.

While there are no psychiatrist or medical doctor on staff at the Elliott County location, it does have a nurse practitioner. Still, clients have access to the nurse only after their appointed therapist deems it necessary. Typically, each client can expect at least three visits before the end of their stay. Though Pathways’ location in Ashland does offer a detox program, the Elliott County facility does not.


While the majority of their services offered are outpatient, Pathways does offer two residential programs at Hillcrest Hall and the Morehead Inspiration Center. Hillcrest is located in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, and specializes in addiction recovery for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18. The program treats no more than 16 residents at a time and typically lasts six months. The Morehead Inspiration Center (in Morehead, Kentucky), on the other hand, is a long-term program offering treatment services for adult men. The program tends to have a rather large 100 clients at a time, and typically lasts nine to 12 months.

In Summary

Pathways, Inc. has a long legacy as a treatment provider in eastern Kentucky, with a plethora of programs and locations. A bonus is that treatment is extremely affordable—the company works with many insurance providers and also operates on a sliding scale. Though it depends on the strength of one’s insurance, sessions can sometimes cost as little as $5 each.
