ARC treatment center to open


A residential drug and alcohol treatment center in Owenton will open in April to provide services for women suffering from substance use disorder.

Located at the former Synergy Healthcare building off Roland Avenue in Owenton, Eagle Creek will provide opioid detoxification, stabilization, residential treatment services and career opportunities for women with substance use disorders. ARC (Addiction Recovery Care) also plans to operate a “PICC Line” unit so individuals in need of care for health conditions such as endocarditis and osteomyelitis can simultaneously be treated for addiction. The center will be operated by ARC and will be open 24/7. 

Once fully operational, Eagle Creek will have the opportunity to serve more than 88 clients daily suffering from substance use disorder. ARC leadership will partner with the Owen County Career Center to announce and fill positions. Career opportunities can be found at

ARC operates a network of 28 addiction treatment centers in 17 eastern and central Kentucky counties. 

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, call ARC’s 24/7 addiction help hotline at (606) 638-0938. To learn more about Addiction Recovery Care, visit
