Not seeking treatment is.

Our Comprehensive Approach

Opioid addiction has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and particularly in Kentucky. According to the Center for Disease Control more than 52,000 Americans die each year from drug overdoses with Kentucky ranked as having the third highest overdose rate in the U.S. with opioids indicated as the primary toxin in nearly all of the overdose fatalities.

The program is an integrated model of care that combines the use of medication as an option for treatment along with clinical practice and Twelve Step Facilitation. Other evidence-based treatment methods also are a part of the COR-12 Program such as Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other models.

The option to combine medication along with behavioral therapies has been proven an effective treatment for Opioid Use Disorders. Medically assisted treatment when coupled with relevant social, medical and psychological services has the highest probability of being the most effective of all available treatments for opioid addiction.

Not all participants would benefit from medically assisted treatment but would still be candidates for the COR-12 program. An initial assessment will determine if medication is a suitable option.
