Nicholasville, Kentucky is located less than 15 miles south of Kentucky’s capital, Lexington. It is part of Jessamine County. About 28,000 people call Nicholasville home making it the eleventh largest city in Kentucky.  According the Jessamine Journal, in 2017, thirty Jessamine County residents died by overdose, making the rate 56.2 per 100,000 residents. Jessamine County ranked fifth in the state for overdoses per capita, with Kenton, Campbell, Boyd and Mason counties ranking first through fourth respectively. If you or a loved one have experienced an overdose or find yourself unable to stop taking a drug or drinking alcohol and you are ready to take that next step towards sobriety – searching for a reputable treatment center can seem a bit overwhelming. For Kentuckians looking for treatment, utilizing legitimate resources to find the help that you need is critical in times like these.  The internet can lead someone astray depending on paid advertisements or “click bait”. It is imperative that one knows what to search for in terms of quality addiction treatment.

 

First of all, be sure you are on a server such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox. Using the right keywords to search for treatment is important, especially using the right combination of keywords.  Combining “Suboxone clinics near me” or “Suboxone clinics in Nicholasville, Kentucky” are a good way to start.  Other keywords could include “Detox near me” or “Outpatient or inpatient addiction treatment near me”.  Ensuring that there is a healthy link of geographical coordinates (city, neighborhood, community) and terms for what you are looking for specifically (outpatient, inpatient, detox, suboxone, medication assisted treatment) – will produce more options that are tailored to exactly what you are looking for.

 

It’s also important to read reviews of the different treatment centers you are researching.  Reviews from actual people who have experience with treatment centers is critical because it allows someone a window into another’s perspective on their experience, without having experienced it themselves.  Keeping an open mind when reading reviews is important as well, and noting if the business responded to the reviews, especially negative ones – with suggestions or solutions.  This can be an indicator of a well-rounded business that cares about the satisfaction of their patients, even if that patient has something negative to say. Another helpful resource, findhelpnowky.org is an online tool that ensures that only addiction treatment centers in the state of Kentucky that are considered authorized and approved by a litany of standards are listed on their resource database. If you do call an addiction treatment center to gather more information about their services, here are a few questions you could ask:

  1. What types of insurance do they accept?
  2. How much does the program cost?
  3. What are the attendance requirements?
  4. How soon can I get in?
  5. What do I need to do or know before I come on my first day?
  6. What do I need to bring on my first day?
