Questions & Answers
1. How long will I be in treatment?
Lake Cumberland Recovery, Inc. offers addiction treatment services from high-intensity and clinically managed residential programs to less-intensive outpatient services. The duration of our services is not fixed. Instead, our program is a continuum of care designed to smoothly transition patients from one phase to the next based on existing needs and individual progress. To achieve this, our clinical staff assesses each client in a structured and purposeful routine against American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria.
LCR phases of care, from most-to-least intensive, are as follows:
Phase 1 - Stabilization and Residential Treatment Services (ASAM 3.1; 3.3; 3.5).
Anticipated duration - 30 days
Phase 2 - Partial Hospitalization Recovery Education and Training (ASAM 2.5).
Anticipated duration - 6-8 weeks
Phase 3 - Intensive Outpatient Program Services (ASAM2.1).
Anticipated duration - 8-10 weeks
Phase 4 - Outpatient and Early Intervention Services (ASAM .5; 1.0).
Anticipated duration - A few weeks
Phase 5 - Work Program - Anticipated duration - Case-by-Case Basis

6. Can I bring my cell phone?
Program participants may bring the cellular device as they may need to pull phone numbers and other information from their device. However, devices that are brought will be kept with all participants personal items until they graduate our residential treatment program.
7. Can I see or contact my family during treatment?
Yes. We encourage each participant to seek healthy connection with their families whenever possible.

In special cases more than one phone call can be arranged.
8. Can I bring my prescribed medications?
Program participants may bring their personal prescribed medications such as high blood pressure medications or diabetes medications. Each participant will be working with a licensed medical professional to determine what medications they can and can not take while in treatment.
9. What happens after my treatment with LCR?
During treatment our team of healthcare professionals will be working with each participant to determine the best after-care plan according to the needs and locale of the individual. No matter where participants want to continue their treatment, our healthcare professionals will work to find the best place to move forward in their recovery.
