Isaiah House, Kentucky’s largest community-focused nonprofit addiction treatment organization, is proud to announce its groundbreaking partnership with NET Recovery to offer NET Recovery’s proprietary neurostimulation therapy (NET®) in the Commonwealth. Recently cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the NET Device™ is an opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment that reduces opioid withdrawal symptoms within 24 hours, making long-term recovery more attainable. Treatment using the NET Device™ is exclusively found at Isaiah House facilities.

“We’re thrilled to offer this groundbreaking new treatment to residents of central Kentucky and beyond,” NET Recovery CEO Joe Winston said. “Isaiah House has been an incredible partner to us as we’ve worked to receive clearance from the FDA. They wholeheartedly support the recovery community, and we’re so proud that our NET Device™ will be added to their comprehensive treatment programs.” 

According to the 2023 Drug Overdose Fatality Report from the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, approximately 80 percent of Kentucky resident overdose deaths last year involved opioids. Treatment using the NET Device™ is the Commonwealth’s newest resource to combat the opioid epidemic, ultimately saving lives, restoring families, and improving communities.

The NET Device™ is applied for three-to-five-days of continuous treatment, reducing withdrawal symptoms using neurostimulation. Participants who are treated for more than 24 hours have a significantly increased chance of remaining opioid-free long term (, NCT04916600).  

“Setting our clients up for long-term success is fundamental to our mission,” Isaiah House CEO Nick Wren said. “The NET Device™ is a huge leap forward in empowering Kentuckians with the treatment and resources they need to maintain a lifetime of sobriety. I’m incredibly excited about our partnership with NET Recovery and the impact it will have on our beloved Bluegrass State.” 

Isaiah House has 30 NET Devices™ available for onsite treatment. Residents of Meade, Scott, Bullitt, and Shelby Counties are eligible to receive treatment free of charge thanks to funding from local abatement grants.  

Isaiah House is led by experts in the field of addiction treatment with decades of medical and health care experience. Adding NET Device™ treatment to its proven and evidence-based method of personalized addiction treatment will allow clients to pursue recovery in an all-encompassing, engaging, caring, and spiritual environment.
