ABOUT WESTCARE PIKE COUNTY COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT CENTER (CIC)/OUTPATIENT PROGRAM – PIKEVILLE
Operating under the wide wing of WestCare, a network of substance abuse, mental health, HIV/AIDS, and domestic violence programs across 18 states, Pike County’s Community Involvement Center (CIC) is an outpatient alcohol and drug abuse program for residents of Pikeville, Ky., and the surrounding areas. The CIC also provides DUI assessments and re-entry services for 80 adult offenders and ex-offenders at the Pike County Detention Center.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients receive an initial assessment to determine the intensity of their treatment plan. The intensity can vary from over 10 hours per week of programming to a minimal aftercare program with one group session per week.
The complete list of program services at CIC includes individual and group counseling, alcohol and drug education classes, and relapse prevention curriculum. An introduction to community-based support services and community-based self-help meetings is provided, as well as education and support for family and significant others of clients, educational and vocational rehabilitation assistance, community referrals, and drug testing.
There is currently no information provided on the facility’s website or otherwise regarding its treatment staff. Two alumni surveyed by Best-rehabs.com rated the counselor’s level of training and experience five out of five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
There are limited reviews for WestCare’s Pikeville facility at the time of this writing, but two former clients rated the facility satisfactory to good for most metrics on Best-rehabs.com surveys. The alumni rated the staff support, overall quality of individual counseling, and the consistency of group meetings four and five out of five stars. Overall, both felt the program gave them the proper tools to aid in recovery and that the groups were engaging.
Former client J.C.Q. wrote: “The experience was scary at first, I was one of the few self pays that wasn’t court ordered. It turned out to be a great, safe facility.The structured regiment was just short of what I experienced in the military in college. The groups were challenging and eye opening.” Another former client, Brian, reported to Best-rehabs.com that he relapsed after six months and unlike the high ratings of the other alum, felt flexibility and quality of group counseling were lacking with one- and two-star ratings, respectively.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
C.P., the single loved one of an alum to evaluate the facility through a Best-rehabs.com survey at the time of this writing, felt their family member, who was in treatment for three to six months, did not benefit from their time in the program. “My loved one doesn’t think he needs help,” C.P. wrote. The family member did, however, note they would recommend the facility to family and friends.
According to two alumni surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing, WestCare accepts self-pay and state/federal insurance. Both also reported the facility did not offer financial assistance.
