Substance abuse is treatable, however, many people do not seek help. Addiction is a complex brain disorder causing continuous cravings for the drug in spite of very negative consequences. Treatment can help people stop using, avoid relapse, recover their lives and connect with a support system and recovery program for a stable recovery.
If used improperly, painkillers like Hydrocodone and Oxycontin can affect the area of the brain that controls respiration, leading to death. Anti-anxiety medications like Xanax and Valium can be deadly when used with alcohol. In fact, the number of Kentuckians who have died from prescription overdose has doubled in just the past ten years.
Admitting that alcohol/drug use is a problem takes tremendous courage, but it is the key first step, and recovery is possible. Peace Hospital has treated adults with substance abuse for over 50 years. We provide inpatient and outpatient treatment and six months of free aftercare services. 12-Step recovery meetings are available on site. We also provide a free weekly education program, “Families Living with Drug/Alcohol Addiction” that is open to family members of patients and anyone in the community.
