Welcome to Stepworks of Nicholasville! We’re proud to expand our compassionate treatment services to serve the greater Lexington area and Northern Kentucky.


 Stepworks’ Only All-Women Facility

While most of our facilities are open to clients of all genders, Stepworks of Nicholasville is the first of our facilities to serve only women in need of help for addiction. Like at other Stepworks facilities, our Nicholasville location can accommodate women who are pregnant.

30-Day Residential Treatment for Addiction

Stepworks offers a compassionate and empowering program of recovery from addiction. We pride ourselves on our safe and therapeutic environment, where our clients can begin the healing process from the damaging outcomes of drug and alcohol dependencies. While clients are recovering from dependence on addictive substances, they begin building skills that will help them succeed independently in long-term recovery. Clients are educated about the disease of addiction and provided a range of coping skills by our group and personal therapists. Our Recovery Coaches help clients complete our daily activities and assist with any issues that appear along the way to graduation. Throughout the program, clients regularly meet individually with a Treatment Team to customize their program of treatment and develop individual goals for treatment and beyond. For more on our 30-day treatment, see here: 30-day residential treatment for addiction.


It can be hard to focus on a recovery program while suffering from drug withdrawal symptoms. Our detox protocols were expertly developed to reduce the pain and discomfort that often accompanies detoxification and withdrawal. Clients who need detox upon admission are closely monitored and supervised while they recover from the effects of withdrawal. When they’re ready, they transition into the daily activities and group sessions of our program. For more on detox, see here: detoxification.

Group and Individual Therapy

Most of the therapy and education at Stepworks is experienced in our daily schedule of groups, in which clients experience the therapeutic benefits of a collaborative and constructive group recovery dynamic. Treatment days at Stepworks are structured around a variety of education and discussion groups led by our professional therapists. Clients also benefit from individual, one-on-one therapy sessions, where they can more deeply explore personal history, ways of thinking, and goals for recovery.

Family Therapy

We strongly encourage our clients to schedule family therapy sessions on visitation days. These sessions offer an opportunity for clients and their families to work on mutual goals for the client’s health and recovery. Family members can benefit tremendously from these meetings, arriving at a better understanding of the disease of addiction and what they can do to support their recovering loved one.

Continuing Care

Long-term treatment planning begins at the start and continues throughout the length of our clients’ stay. Throughout the 30-day program, our therapists and treatment teams continually work on crafting a continuing care plan with every client. Clients and their treatment teams collaborate on identifying each client’s unique needs and desires for long-term recovery, structure, and support. If a client will need additional addiction treatment options after graduating from the Stepworks program, our staff works to find an appropriate long-term residential program, recovery house, outpatient service, or support group in their area of residence.
