Medication Oriented Recovery and Enhancement (MORE) Program

Our Medication Oriented Recovery and Enhancement (MORE) Program provides medication assisted treatment and counseling to people inside the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections (LMDC) experiencing opioid use disorder. We also provide these services to pregnant woman with opioid use disorder (OUD) in partnership with Volunteers of America. The program is funded by a Federal Block Grant through the Kentucky Opioid Response Effort.  

Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure access to medication assisted treatment for those experiencing opioid use disorder while incarcerated to improve medical and mental health outcomes, reduce recidivism and support recovery. Our treatment uses a comprehensive structured recovery model of counseling, education, medical care and case management. Patients must stop using all drugs that are not approved by the program's medical doctor. Urine drug screens are randomly collected as part of the treatment process. We encourage participation in the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. We also offer numerous counseling groups each week to facilitate successful recovery. 


What we do

  • We treat you with dignity and respect.
  • We tailor your treatment to meet your individual needs.
  • We help you access outside services that support your recovery, from finding a mental health provider (if needed), to finding a local support group, and more.


About our treatment

We treat opioid use disorders (addiction) with a combination of psychosocial counseling and medication.  We will assist you in finding a safe, stabilizing, daily dose of methadone that allows you to avoid withdrawal symptoms, so you can begin rebuilding your life.  We encourage participation in recovery support groups.


Who We Are

Our counselors are certified alcohol and drug counselors, specializing in medication assisted treatment.  Many of our staff are licensed, as well.  We strive to provide you with an excellent counseling staff, and some of the best treatment in the region.


More about methadone and medication-assisted treatment

Methadone has been the gold standard for treatment of opiate addiction for decades.  Research showing its effectiveness has been established for over forty years.  Women who are pregnant and addicted to opiates, are frequently referred to medication-assisted treatment, for improved health of their baby during pregnancy.

Medication-assisted treatment has changed a lot over the past several decades.  It is common now to be prescribed a lower dose – a dose that’s enough to stabilize, yet avoids the unpleasant side effects of drowsiness that can occur with higher doses. 

At this time we are not accepting new patients. For questions about the MORE program, please call (502) 574-6414.
