The cost of treatment can sometimes be a barrier for those seeking help with opioid addiction, but through Kentucky’s Opioid Response Effort (KORE), those in need have a new option, as funds are available for individuals without insurance seeking residential treatment for an opioid use disorder.
Kentucky residents who have an income not exceeding 150 percent of the federal poverty level annually, which is approximately $18,000 for a single household, can qualify to have the cost for 30 days of residential treatment for opioid use disorder covered by KORE.
KORE funding will also pay room and board for individuals continuing treatment in an intensive outpatient level of care in a residential treatment facility. Those room and board charges are covered for an additional 30 days.
The person seeking treatment must apply through a qualified provider such as Isaiah House, Inc. Qualified providers are licensed in the state of Kentucky as an Alcohol and Other Drug Entity (AODE) and a Behavioral Health Services Organization (BHSO).
Isaiah House Treatment Center is an outpatient, intensive outpatient and residential treatment program with a Gold Standard of care for men & women with facilities in Willisburg, Chaplin and Harrodsburg, as well as an outpatient/intensive outpatient center in Danville scheduled to open this month.
Isaiah House has been in operation since 1999 with 156 residential beds in three counties and 22 transitional homes. Clients are guaranteed opportunities for full-time employment after being in the program 100 days, as well as free on-site college classes up to 12 credits and job skills/vocational training including welding on-site beginning in fall 2019.
Isaiah House employs 170 staff members, 70 percent of which are alumni or family. This includes 21 licensed therapists and seven licensed medical staff.
