Based in Louisville, Ky., Interlink Counseling Services (ICS) is a nonprofit agency offering a range of programs for individuals struggling with substance abuse, as well as being one of the 120 (33.1 percent) treatment centers in the state with programming for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders.

ICS provides emergency housing, residential treatment, outpatient counseling, transitional housing services, as well as a DUI program. It is also one of Kentucky’s only 22 (6.1 percent) treatment facilities with detox services available. While ICS serves those from all walks of life, a sizeable portion of their population consists of male veterans, many of whom are also homeless.


The first phase of treatment is designed to provide homeless men with a safe and intimate, substance-free space to detox from drugs and/or alcohol and may include buprenorphine services.

ICS’s residential treatment center is often the next step for clients who undergo detox. Residents typically spend 30 days or more in this highly-structured program. They work with staff to create an individualized treatment plan that involves group therapy, one-on-one counseling, and child and family therapy. The facility also offers case management, as well as classes on recovery, relapse prevention, and life skills.

Graduates of the residential program often move on to a transitional living facility for aftercare treatment. For up to two years, clients still have access to educational resources, but focus primarily on seeking and maintaining employment outside ICS.


At the time of this writing, there is no available information regarding the facility’s treatment staff; though, 99.4 percent of all substance abuse treatment centers in Kentucky have continuing education requirements for staff.


No details on ICS’s living arrangements are available at the time of this writing. The one individual to provide feedback to to date gave five out of five stars for accommodations & amenities.


Reviews of treatment at ICS are limited, and vary in nature. To date, has received two ratings from former clients who reported mixed experiences. P.W.R., an alum who was referred to ICS through The Department of Veterans Affairs, reported to that ICS seemed to have a “bad recovery rating.” While he rated the facility’s accommodations and meals favorably, he noted that he would not recommend the facility, and gave his overall experience only two out of five stars and extracurricular offerings just one out of five stars.

On the other hand, the other reviewer, T.B., indicated that he attended a DUI course at the facility and wrote: “I have learned so much about addictions I don’t even have but it’s been great for education.”

The facility has a high, average rating of 4.4 out of five stars from 12 Facebook users to date, which the facility may monitor. Former client K.Y. gave the facility five stars, and representatively added, “Interlink pulled me out of the grips of addiction. Gave me information about this disease & the tool I needed to arrest it.” H.C., another five-star alum reviewer, expressed his gratitude “for the help interlink provided for me to get back in the community.”[1]

Less favorable commentary appears on Google to date where there are eight reviews, averaging 3.4 out of five stars.[2] R.S. awarded five stars and wrote, “Awesome Place… They really Care about people and their situation” in representation of a positive review. However, negative commentary touched upon the facility caring more about money than the quality of care for veterans.


The facility does not currently provide information regarding its financing online, though the single alum polled by to date disagreed that the treatment at this center was worth the cost.


At the time of this writing, Interlink Counseling Services is temporarily closed for renovation.

Reviews about Interlink Counseling Services

I had a Dui in 2014. Now that I have went to Wayne's interlinked place for over a yea year now, I'm about to drive again. I was not court ordered to go, just simply trying to get my license back. My daughter is 16 now and wants to drive. I have learned so much about addictions I don't even have but it's been great for education. Wayne cares, lots of places don't. :-)
