Serving eight counties in southern Kentucky, Pennyroyal Center provides a full array of services for substance abuse, mental health, intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition to seven outpatient locations, Pennyroyal runs a women’s residential substance abuse treatment program called Trilogy and a co-ed residential program for those with co-occurring disorders called Genesis, both in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. By using evidence-based therapy and emphasizing peer support, these programs help stabilize residents and allow them to successfully reintegrate into the community.
Accommodations and Food
The Trilogy Center for Women treats up to 100 clients at a time. New residents live in dorm-style rooms with up to 12 roommates and shared bathrooms. The senior residents in good standing have the option to move into larger, double-occupancy rooms when they become available. The Genesis program is offers 16 beds, with men and women separated into eight bedrooms in gender-specific hallways.
Both facilities feature common areas with TVs. The women in the Trilogy Center are served three meals a day cafeteria-style in a large dining room. Genesis clients are responsible for preparing their own food, which is provided. Clients rotate house chores and are responsible for keeping their rooms clean. Cell phones and personal computers are not permitted but residents can use the house computer for job search activities.
Treatment and Staff
Women may have to be placed on a waiting list for a bed at Trilogy Center and they must be drug and alcohol-free for at least 72 hours before arriving. Treatment lasts up to nine months and is made up of two phases: Stabilization and Integration. In the Stabilization phase, women attend group therapy 10 times a week and individual therapy once a week. Groups use CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and provide and an introduction to the 12-step philosophy. Residents are required to attend four off-site 12-step meetings each week.
In the Integration phase, clients continue therapy and begin searching for employment. Trilogy can refer clients to sober living, vocational training and educational programs. In this phase, residents can also apply for passes to have overnight visits with family or have their children visit the home at designated times.
The Genesis program exclusively accepts clients with co-occurring disorders, as long as substance abuse is their primary diagnosis. Genesis provides completely individualized treatment and length of the program depends on the client. Typically, Genesis clients have two daily groups and three individual sessions a week. Groups are gender-specific and modalities include CBT, DBT and trauma-informed care.
Pennyroyal Center also offers a 50-bed facility for homeless veterans and referrals are made through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Clients with substance use issues receive treatment on site or through one of the Pennyroyal outpatient locations along with vocational skills training while in the program.
Originally founded in 1967, Pennyroyal Center has been steadily expanding over the past 50 years. By offering a variety of residential and outpatient programs throughout the state, Pennyroyal is a valuable resource to the residents of southern Kentucky. Pennyroyal gives back to the community by ensuring clients emerge from treatment with the life skills and social support to lead functional lives in sobriety.
