Our Medication Oriented Recovery and Enhancement (MORE) Center provides medically monitored drug treatment (methadone) and counseling to patients addicted to narcotic drugs like heroin, morphine, OxyContin, Opana and Dilaudid. It is an outpatient program funded by patient fees and by a Federal Block Grant through the State of Kentucky. We are able to serve 200 patients.
Our mission is to empower people addicted to narcotic drugs to discontinue illegal drug use and to improve their quality of life. 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 MORE Center 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.
Over the past 25 years, the MORE Center has helped thousands of people to get their lives back. We want to help you to get your life back in control and find stability. We have a knowledgeable staff that is willing to help you. Our staff includes registered nurses, certified alcohol and drug counselors; a registered medical assistant along with our Medical Director, a doctor who specializes in treating addiction.

What is Medication Assisted Treatment?
Medication Assisted Treatment uses medicine and counseling to help a person addicted to narcotic drugs like heroin, morphine, and OxyContin. Studies show that using both medicine and counseling is most successful. Medication Assisted Treatment is directed by a physician and tailored to each person’s individual needs.
What is Methadone?
Methadone is a man-made narcotic medicine. The medicine is liquid and you drink it. Methadone stops withdrawal and, if taken in the correct dosage, doesn’t make you high or nod off. It also stops the high from other narcotic drugs like heroin and helps you to stop using. When you are not in withdrawal, you will get more out of counseling. Unlike heroin and other narcotics, your body processes methadone slowly over 24 hours.
Numerous studies over the past 30 years have shown that when taken as prescribed methadone has no harmful effects - even if taken for a long time. The studies also show that methadone can be safely used during pregnancy.
