Alcoholism & Drug Rehab Addiction Treatment Center

Cornerstone, located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, provides a place where substance abuse and mental health issues can be addressed head on, so that healing may begin. Our programs are based on the Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual model of treatment and the 12 Step approach to recovery, and we pride ourselves on the individualized treatment plans we develop for each and every patient, the goals of which are to dispel the darkness of their disease and allow that individual to function as a responsible, productive member of society.

We provide medical detox services that allow our patients to safely withdraw from drugs and alcohol, and the therapeutic elements of our program include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Integration Training (AAIT), Schema Therapy, Family Therapy, Individual and Group Therapy, Activity Therapy, Fitness, Chronic Pain Management and Psychoeducational groups and lectures. Each patient will be involved in individual and group therapy with a master’s level therapist, in addition to other processing groups that offer counselor and peer support.

If you’ve found yourself here, know this: You don’t have to suffer any longer. There is a way out, and we can help you leave that darkness behind forever. With comprehensive treatment, your addiction can come to an end, and a new day is just over the horizon. Please, reach out to us, let us evaluate your situation and permit us to help you recover.



  • Medical Detox

    Each of our programs includes a medically supervised detox that offers a safe environment to rid your body of substances and begin the healing process.

  • Inpatient Programs

    Our residential alcohol and drug rehab programs last anywhere from 28 to 35 days depending on patient needs. After completion patients will be enrolled into either our Intensive Outpatient or Aftercare Programs.

  • Outpatient Rehab Programs

    In addition to inpatient treatment programs we have an Intensive Outpatient program which is typically recommended for those who have not suffered any consequences due to their addiction or have recently completed an inpatient program and need additional work to maintain sobriety.

  • Family Fundamentals

    During this event our patients loved ones are invited to Cornerstone for a day of learning about the science and treatment of addiction, and to participate in some therapeutic exercises to help them better understand their loved one and what they can do to help them in the future.

  • Aftercare Program

    Residential inpatient is just the first step of the journey toward long-term sobriety. Aftercare, which includes 10 weeks of Intensive Outpatient therapy and voluntary post-IOP groups that meet weekly, is an additional layer of the recovery safety net that grants patients greater independence while allowing them to remain grounded in the therapeutic community.

Alcoholism & Drug Addiction Treatment Programs

Cornerstone has developed alcohol and drug rehab & recovery programs to fit the needs of our patients. As with many things in life, there is not a one size fits all approach to treating the addiction disease. Through a proper assessment and evaluation period, Cornerstone of Recovery can make the best recommendation for each individual that will give them the best opportunity to achieve a lasting recovery.

Newcomers Inpatient Program

Clinically, the Newcomers Residential Alcohol & Drug Rehab Program is inpatient based and typically lasts between 28 and 35 days, during which time our trained counselors and other professionals develop individual treatment plans for each patient according to needs, backgrounds and situations. During that process, patients participate in a 12-Step recovery.

Recovery Renewal Inpatient Program

Intensive residential inpatient program for those who have tried to stay clean in the past but been unsuccessful, even after exposure to an addiction treatment program and 12 step programs in the past. It’s designed to help patients target the triggers and issues that factor into their inability to stay clean and the factors that lead to a relapse

Young Adult Inpatient Program

Our Young Adult Residential rehab and recovery program is specifically structured for persons between the ages of 18 and 26. Understanding that this age group faces its own unique set of circumstances, our clinical staff focuses on developmental issues, behavior styles, and energy levels specific to the young adult.

Women Only Inpatient Program

Cornerstone recognizes that women face issues in addiction and alcoholism that are unique to them. Clinically, the Womens' Programs is inpatient based and typically lasts between 28 and 35 days, during which time therapies are carried out within the safe space of a women’s only program. Group therapy, individual counseling, activity therapy, acceptance/integration therapy – they’re all designed for both the individual and the gender.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Recovery is a lifelong endeavor, and even after four weeks of inpatient treatment, addicts and alcoholics are just getting started on their journey. Cornerstone of Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program is an extension of a safety net that allows them to continue to their education about their illness and work on the issues surrounding it. For several hours a day, four days a week over an eight-week period, they’ll continue to attend groups at Cornerstone while commuting from home or living in our Sober Living housing, so that by the time they complete a full continuum of care, they’ll be better prepared to face life on life’s terms without the use of alcohol and drugs.

Take A Tour Of Our Facility

At Cornerstone of Recovery, we know the misery that is your constant companion. Since 1989, we’ve provided that guidance as one of the premier addiction treatment centers in the nation; many of our staff members are in recovery themselves and once lived as all suffering addicts do: helpless, hopeless and lost. Through recovery, they’ve found a new way to live, and together with trained clinical staff members from all disciplines, they’re carrying the message to those who still suffer.

We Are Accepting New Patients

Addiction Doesn't Stop - And Neither Will We

The growing coronavirus pandemic is a serious threat to the health and safety of every American — but so is addiction. In 2017, overdose-related deaths claimed the lives of more than 70,000 people in this country. Alcohol-related deaths kill roughly 88,000 people a year in this country. These illnesses are chronic, progressive and fatal, and the need for recovery is just as pressing as it’s ever been. At Cornerstone of Recovery, we’re committed to our mission of giving those who suffer the opportunity to discover a new way of life, free from addiction — and without the stress of the current COVID-19 climate. Our doors remain open to those who need our help, but we’re taking preventative measures to screen incoming patients, protect those individuals already in our care and educate the Cornerstone community about ways to keep our campus as healthy as possible. Even in times of uncertainty, addiction doesn’t stop — and neither will we.

Does Cornerstone Accept My Health Insurance?

At Cornerstone, we understand all too well that addiction and a bank account that’s in the black are often mutually exclusive scenarios. If you’ve made the decision to seek addiction treatment, you may be at a loss over how to afford it. The good news is that Cornerstone of Recovery is an in-network provider with most major commercial health insurance plans, meaning that your health insurance policy will likely cover some, if not all, of your drug rehab stay. More importantly, the employees in our business office have decades of experience working with insurance companies to get the most out of your behavioral health benefits, so that you can begin your recovery without the looming cloud of financial strain hanging over your head.
