Our Footprint

Addiction Recovery Care (ARC) is headquartered in Louisa, Kentucky, and operates a network of over 30 licensed addiction treatment centers in 22 Central and Eastern Kentucky counties. Our mission is to create opportunities for people to discover hope and live their God-given destiny.

We take a holistic, person-centered approach to treatment and recovery utilizing CARF-accredited clinical programs, medical services directed by an addiction psychiatrist, a broadening scope of vocational training opportunities that position clients for long-term success, and a spiritual emphasis that includes the 12 steps and chaplaincy care.

We are focused on treating the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—we’ve built a four-phase program that prepares you for long-term recovery.

Our program is designed to take you from detox all the way through completing an internship with ARC. Each client begins with our foundational phase 1 program and may progress to additional phases. 

Treatment + Training

Leads to Success
