Alcohol & Drug Rehab That Accepts Cigna Health Insurance Charlotte NC

charlotte nc alcohol drug rehab cigna healthIt's only a four-hour drive from Charlotte to Knoxville, Tennessee — not a long one, but long enough that the reason for your journey should be a valuable one. But if you're a Charlotte resident seeking drug and alcohol treatment — particularly if you have a Cigna health insurance policy — it doesn't get much more valuable than your life.

That's what we offer at Cornerstone of Recovery: not an opportunity to get your life "back," necessarily, because by the time addiction and alcoholism have forced you to seriously consider drug and alcohol rehab, your life may not be one you want back. The addiction and alcoholism recovery we offer, however, can give you a whole new life — one you never thought possible, without the gnawing need to use drugs and alcohol to escape or numb the pain of your own fragile humanity.

Cigna Substance Use Center of Excellence Near Charlotte

At Cornerstone of Recovery, we've been treating addicts and alcoholics since 1989, and our success rate has led to a nationwide reputation in the treatment field and with private and commercial insurance companies like Cigna. We've returned thousands of recovering men and women back home to cities across the country, including Charlotte, with the tools they need to remain clean and sober. Their journey begins with a 3- to 5-day stay in our Medical Detox unit, where they'll undergo a safe, slow and comfortable withdrawal process that will help purge their bodies of substances. Afterward, they'll transition to one of our four residential inpatient programs: Newcomers, for men seeking treatment for the first time; Recovery Renewal, for men who have been to rehab before but have been unable to stay clean and sober; Young Adult, for men ages 18 to 26; and our Women's Only Program, for all of our female clients. As patients in these particular treatment tracks, those who come to us for help will share some common experiences — group therapy, 12 Step facilitation, one-on-one counseling and an opportunity to get in better shape through regular access to our modern, on-campus fitness center.

But we also go to great lengths to help each patient design an individualized treatment plan to meet their needs. Is there unresolved pain from tragedy or abuse? We have trauma therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy for that. Are there old habits or poor coping skills that can't seem to be broken? We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Schema Therapy for that. Are there underlying mental health issues like depression or bipolar disorder? Our psychiatric team provides dual diagnosis treatment for those co-occurring illnesses. Are there deep wounds to the family dynamic that need to be resolved? We have a hands-on family therapy program that can help.

We do it all from a 25-acre, four-facility campus that first opened in 2017, 28 years after we began as a small treatment facility powered by a mighty mission: that any addict or alcoholic, given the proper encouragement, knowledge, therapy and kindness, stop using and drinking, lose the desire to do so and find a new way to live. Although we've grown into one of the largest treatment providers in Tennessee and accept patients from all over the country (including Charlotte) with most major insurance plans (including Cigna), we remain committed to that mission.

What Is Involved With The Alcoholism Treatment Programs?

What makes Cornerstone of Recovery unique? What makes it worth the drive from Charlotte to receive drug and alcohol treatment, when your Cigna plan might cover it at a facility closer to home? Our commitment to you. We were founded by a recovering alcoholic, and today the majority of our staff — from housekeeping to administration to the clinical team — is drawn from the East Tennessee recovery community. Despite their licenses and educational credentials, many of them know full well the pain and heartache that addiction and alcoholism cause, and having found a way out, they've accepted a calling to help others find the same. It's a job, but it's also a purpose that brings them to Cornerstone beyond just a paycheck. We show up to Cornerstone every day excited about changing lives, because recovery from addiction and alcoholism is nothing short of miraculous. We know it, because we've lived it ... and you can, too.

Newcomers Inpatient Program

Newcomer: "A person who has recently arrived in a place or joined a group." For those new to the recovery process, it's an apropos definition — they've recently come to terms with their addiction or alcoholism, or perhaps they're still fighting against the label. Either way, the goal of our Newcomers Program is to help them find their way in that new place, understand what's going on within and give them the tools they need to address their problems and stay sober.

Recovery Renewal Inpatient Program

Renewal: "An instance of resuming an activity or state after an interruption." For those who get clean and sober but then fall back into drug and alcohol use, that "interruption" can be deadly ... or at the very least, incredibly shameful. Our Recovery Renewal Program is designed to teach them that it doesn't have to be, and that through deeper work and a methodical process, they can resume their sobriety and continue forward in a rewarding life that doesn't include drugs and alcohol.

Young Adult Inpatient Program

Young Adult: "A person in their teens or early twenties." It's an age rife with raging emotions, powerful opinions and boundless reserves of energy, and all of those things must be acknowledged in order to effectively communicate with young men ages 18 to 26. That's exactly what our Young Adult Program is designed to do, so that they build a recovery community with their peers, take part in more hands-on therapy and come to embrace a future that doesn't include drugs and alcohol.

Women Only Inpatient Program

Women's Only: "Designating an event, place, etc. restricted to women and girls." When we moved to our new campus in 2017, we discovered an opportunity to create a unique program that would include all of our female clients, who would then be able to focus on themselves and their recovery without the distracting, and sometimes troubling, influence of male perspectives. Since then, it's become an invaluable sisterhood of support for women seeking recovery.

After completing residential inpatient treatment, those who live in or near Charlotte have the option of returning home to North Carolina — where we'll work hard to help them set up an aftercare plan that includes therapy, recovery groups, 12 Step meetings, etc. — or they can remain part of the Cornerstone community. If they choose to enroll in our Intensive Outpatient Program — some or all of which is sometimes covered by their Cigna plan — they'll reside in our Sober Living housing and continue to meet in groups for several hours a day, four days a week. They'll go on outings as a community, receive an opportunity to do volunteer work or find employment and as they progress and grow, earn privileges like their personal transportation and their cell phone. It's a way of stretching the recovery safety net to give them more time to heal, so that when the time comes to return to Charlotte, they do so as changed individuals, ready to be responsible and productive members of society.
