For Professionals

Staff at Bluegrass specialize in the treatment of children from infancy through age 18. We take a trauma-informed, person-centered approach using evidence-based practices. Our focus is on developing a strong partnership with families, to quickly determine the needs and goals of treatment and develop a solid plan to target and track progress toward recovery. We provide children and families with the tools in a therapeutic setting to maintain progress and recovery outside of the office setting. We fully support collaboration and ongoing communication to facilitate a strong continuity of care.  

If you are interested in referring child, adolescent or family for services at Bluegrass, please contact our 24-Hour Help Line at 1.800.928.8000 or complete an online referral.

Our clinicians are master’s level therapists and have met the requirements for certification and licensure to treat children, adults and families. After an initial assessment, we meet with families at the office located nearest them. We maintain service locations in 17 central Kentucky counties. Our person-centered approach uses evidence-based practices and puts the child and family at the center of their recovery plan. We maintain a staff of 300 clinicians and psychiatrists.
