Chemical Dependency Services

The Adolescent Chemical Dependency Inpatient Program at Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System provides treatment for adolescent females ages 12 to 17. It is an individualized model with careful attention to meeting youth where they are and providing successful counseling interventions. This helps young women look at themselves, understand what it takes to give up a drug abusing lifestyle and prepare for success when they commit to change.

The program is a separate treatment modality with separate primary treatment staff. The treatment is individualized and guided by a tailored treatment plan that addresses the emotional needs of the patient. The multidisciplinary treatment team is led by an addictionologist or psychiatrist and includes a certified alcohol and drug counselor, case coordinator, licensed therapist, nurse and activity therapist. The patient works individually with her therapist and chemical dependency counselor focusing on their own chemical dependency issues.

The Adolescent Chemical Dependency Program is designed for adolescents who require intensive intervention for chemical dependency problems.

Components of the program include:

    • The Matrix Model
    • Relapse prevention
    • Individual therapy
    • Group therapy
    • Intensive family therapy
    • Activity therapy
    • Spirituality counseling
    • Nursing education
        Family therapy is a major component of treatment at Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System. The multidisciplinary treatment team seeks to engage the family as an ally in the adolescent’s treatment whenever possible.

Each individual attends school on site and is led by certified teachers through the Hardin County School System.

The adolescent’s case coordinator begins discharge planning upon admission by developing goals and plans for a transition to a less intensive level of treatment.

Serving patients from across the country, the Adult Chemical Dependency Inpatient Program at Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System is a highly structured program for adults over the age of 18 with the need for supervised detoxification or recovery. The philosophy of this program centers on the Living in Balance model — focused on relapse prevention while providing numerous opportunities for daily living improvement through extensive group sessions. Living in Balance helps patients to discover areas of life they have neglected through addiction and gives them the resources to live a sober life.

In addition to Living in Balance, patients attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) while in treatment. They receive a copy of the AA Big Book and begin to work the 12 steps. 12-step education is provided in groups and individually patients work on each step.

Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System also provides patients with a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) for addiction. The patients develop a plan to use their wellness tools on a daily basis to manage their sobriety and mental health. WRAP aids in discharge planning by giving patients a detailed discharge plan they have created to aid both in their sobriety and to help keep slips from turning into relapses.

The multidisciplinary treatment team is led by an addictionologist or psychiatrist, a certified alcohol and drug counselor, case coordinator, social worker, nurse and activity therapist. The treatment is individualized and guided by a tailored treatment plan that addresses each patient’s specific needs.

  • Medical detox
  • Chemical dependency education

Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System’s Chemical Dependency Program is also designed to treat individuals with co-occurring disorders. Individuals are able to attend group sessions addressing their psychiatric and chemical dependency needs. These needs will also be addressed in individual therapy as well as with the attending physician.

Discharge planning begins upon admission by the individual’s case coordinator to develop goals and plans for a transition to a less intensive level of treatment. We accept most private insurance, as well as Medicare for both detox and rehab.
