JourneyPure Bowling Green

JourneyPure, a national provider of addiction treatment and mental health services, is on pace to double its number of treatment beds in Kentucky’s Warren County by the end of the year.

JourneyPure opened a 32-bed capacity residential treatment center on its Bowling Green campus in April 2019. With an additional 16 beds made available today and another 16 ready to go next month, the company will soon be able to serve twice as many people in need of addiction or mental health treatment.

“The JourneyPure team is thrilled with the prospect of helping many more people with substance abuse issues,” said JourneyPure CEO and Co-founder Kevin Lee. “We value our relationship with all of the hospitals in the area, and we look forward to providing more services to the citizens of Kentucky.”

The Opioid Epidemic in Kentucky

According to recent studies, Kentucky ranked eighth-worst for drug problems in the U.S. This ranking stems from such factors as opioid prescriptions issued per capita and drug overdose per capita. Of course, Kentucky is not alone in the struggle against opioid addiction and drug overdose, as heroin-related overdose deaths in the U.S. have more than quadrupled since 2010.

In 2017, there were 1,160 reported opioid-involved deaths in the Bluegrass State, amounting to a rate of nearly 28 people per 100,000 persons, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This is nearly double the average national rate of fewer than 15 deaths per 100,000 persons.

“With this addition of medically monitored detox and traditional residential model [beds], this allows us to offer the full continuum of care to help people get healthy and stay healthy,” said Jerry Lucas, JourneyPure’s market manager in Kentucky.
