Alcohol and drug abuse have the power to consume a person’s life, affecting mental health, behavioral health and physical health. Unlike inpatient care, our outpatient drug rehab in Pikeville, Kentucky, lets you take care of your responsibilities, sleep in your own bed and follow your own schedule — all while taking advantage of the same treatment services available to those in residential rehab.

At Brookside Treatment outpatient rehab, we can safely guide you through the entire recovery process, from detox to therapy and aftercare. Drug and alcohol addiction don’t have to define who you are, and professional substance abuse treatment is the best way to escape its grasp for good. Call us today at 606-342-7089 to find out more.


While residential treatment is often required for people with severe substance abuse disorders, outpatient programs are the preferred option for many people in addiction recovery. The main difference between an inpatient program v. outpatient program is where you sleep. For some people, inpatient care relieves the pressure of making daily appointments, enhancing the chances of recovery because the schedule is predetermined and you don’t have to make any extra effort to attend.

For others, the idea of having freedom restricted to the point of following a drug treatment schedule 24/7 is off-putting. If this is the case for you, our outpatient treatment option could be ideal. You’ll attend for three hours each day Monday to Saturday, leaving plenty of time free for you to live your life while getting comprehensive treatment at our outpatient clinic.

If you require drug or alcohol detoxification or are having withdrawal symptoms, it’ll take place at our detox center before commencing at an addiction treatment center.

Outpatient Rehab


Outpatient rehab isn’t just for people struggling with drug addiction, it’s for alcohol addiction too. Individuals who have a mild to moderate alcohol use disorder are uniquely placed to benefit from this style of treatment. Unlike illegal drugs, people with an alcoholism diagnosis must learn how to control their intake of a substance that’s widely used and socially acceptable. As such, remaining in your home is less risky than it would be for someone whose only chance to get hold of their drug of choice is through a drug dealer.

That said, individuals with severe AUD will often require detox, residential treatment and outpatient care. Alcohol is one of the most physically addictive drugs available because, like opioids, it tricks your body into thinking you require that substance to function. If you suddenly stop, your body could go into shock and you could get very ill.

What’s more, with outpatient addiction treatment, you could very easily buy yourself a drink, while it’s simply not an option with inpatient treatment. If you feel you’re unable to stop yourself from going to a shop or bar, an inpatient setting might be a better option.


Unfortunately, there’s a major drug problem in Pikeville, where methamphetamine is involved in 80% of arrests in the area.

Unfortunately, there’s a major drug and health problem in Pikeville, where methamphetamine is involved in 80% of arrests in the area.

Meth is a stimulant drug that provides stronger, more long-lasting effects that are vaguely comparable to cocaine. It’s extremely addictive and quickly leads to a host of mental and physical health problems.

Opioids are also a major concern in Kentucky, where drug overdose deaths have reached epidemic proportions. Thankfully, data from the National Institute for Drug Abuse shows that prescription drug overdose deaths and deaths involving heroin fell between 2017 and 2018. Despite the drop in numbers, Eastern Kentucky still has the highest overdose rates in the United States.

There are a number of drug abuse treatment options, such as intensive outpatient programs and inpatient rehab. With stimulants on the rise, substance abuse disorders are all too frequent.


Addiction might feel like a life sentence, but it truly doesn’t have to be. Thousands of people gain control over the disease every month, and they usually do so with the support and guidance of professionals. There are a number of organizations that offer free support for people with drug and alcohol problems, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Al-Anon.
