Alcohol Rehab & Alcoholism Treatment Greenville SC

There was a disturbing study released in 2018 that compiled data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The findings: South Carolina ranked second in the nation for traffic fatalities involving impaired drivers. In the Greenville area, there's a DUI-related traffic fatality every two weeks, according to some estimates, which means the city has one of the highest DUI death rates in a state where alcohol makes the roads some of the deadliest.

Those numbers, along with the fact that alcohol-related deaths cost 88,000 American lives annually, means the need for access to quality alcoholism treatment by Greenville residents is more pressing than ever. Three hours up the interstate, however, is a nationally respected alcoholism treatment center that's helped helped thousands of people get sober over the past 30 years. As a comprehensive alcohol rehab, we provide a full continuum of care that begins with safe, medically supervised detox from alcohol. From there, patients transition to one of our four residential inpatient programs: Newcomers, for individuals starting out on their sobriety journey; Recovery Renewal, for those with previous alcoholism treatment experience or periods of sobriety who have relapsed; Young Adult, for young men ages 18-26 that includes vocational therapy in addition to traditional alcoholism treatment; and our Women’s Only Program, which gives female clients a safe space to process issues and traumas unique to them.

In addition, we provide comprehensive family therapy that includes a weekend during which patients and their family members address issues and problems that have arisen around alcoholism. Those who struggle with co-occurring illnesses like bipolar disorder, ADHD or anxiety will find the dual diagnosis care they need from our psychiatric team, and we offer a range of therapies that make Cornerstone so much more than just another alcohol rehab.

We do it all from a 25-acres, four-facility campus that opened in 2017, halfway between Knoxville, Tennessee, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. From the residence hall that supports on-campus sober living for patients of all levels to a well-equipped fitness center that encourages active and healthy lifestyles, Cornerstone of Recovery provides the best opportunity for those who struggle with alcoholism to quit drinking, lose the desire to do so and find a new way to live.

We accept most major health insurance plans, and we’re always available to discuss your needs or provide you with more information. If you’re a Greenville resident looking for alcoholism treatment, look toward East Tennessee, and you’ll find one of the best at Cornerstone of Recovery.

Your Recovery Journey Begins Here

Three Reasons Why You Need to Call Today to Get Addiction and Alcoholism Treatment

  • We’re in the middle of great economic uncertainty. Unemployment rates reached their highest levels in history in April, which means COVID-19 took a catastrophic toll on the job market this spring. If you have a job — or even if you don’t, but you still have benefits provided by your previous place of employment — you’re fortunate. And you should take advantage of those benefits to get the help you need for a drug or alcohol problem today, because there’s no guarantee you’ll have the resources to do so down the road.


  • No one is truly certain what life in the time of coronavirus looks like going forward. Yes, there are still new cases being logged daily, and yes, it’s certainly a health concern for anyone and everyone. But if you’re struggling with addiction and alcoholism, you’re already sick — and the disease you’re battling is far more likely to claim your life than COVID-19. Overdose deaths kill more Americans annually than all combat deaths in the Vietnam War, and alcohol-related deaths claim 88,000 lives yearly. If you have an alcohol or drug problem, you’re more likely to become one of those statistics than a COVID-19 victim.


  • Putting it off for another day is no longer an option. You may tell yourself that it is … and you may have made it this far without treatment … but are you truly living? In our experience — and many of us who work at Cornerstone are in recovery ourselves — suffering from addiction and alcoholism is just existing. Our problems slowly get worse, our health slowly declines and we’re stuck in wreckage of our own making, until we’re faced with two choices: get help, or lose everything. Why wait until the latter when with a simple phone call, you can choose the former?
the first step to the rest of your life starts at cornerstone of recovery

For 30 years, Cornerstone of Recovery, located outside of Knoxville, Tenn., has offered help, healing and hope for those with drug and alcohol problems. We were established by a recovering alcoholic, and today individuals in recovery make up roughly 90 percent of our clinical staff, so our experience, strength and hope are lifted from our own struggles, as well as our own sobriety.

Throughout multiple phases of the treatment process, our goal is to educate patients, help them address issues and stumbling blocks that keep them returning to alcohol in spite of negative consequences and prepare them for a return to Greenville as individuals who are capable of living life without the crippling need for a drink at every turn.

Inpatient Alcohol Drug Rehab

What In Involved In Addiction Treatment Programs?

The treatment programs at Cornerstone begin with safe, medically supervised detox from alcohol and drugs, after which patients are introduced to one of our four primary recovery programs:

Newcomers Inpatient Program

Those seeking alcoholism treatment for the first time need to understand their affliction as well as find coping skills to deal with it. That's where the Newcomers Alcoholism Treatment Program comes in, a path that typically lasts 28 to 35 days and includes an educational component as well as a therapeutic one to give patients the best chance at long-term sobriety.

Recovery Renewal Inpatient Program

Individuals who has been to alcohol rehab in the past, or have experienced periods of sobriety before a relapse, often feel disheartened that their previous attempts to get sober have fallen short. Our Recovery Renewal Alcoholism Treatment Program guides them in taking a deeper look at the issues that have prevented sustained sobriety, so that they may deal with them and find a life free of alcohol.

Young Adult Inpatient Program

Young men ages 18 to 26 are often restless, spirited individuals who need a more engaging alcoholism treatment component — which is exactly what our Young Adult Alcoholism Treatment Program provides. It's a more hands-on, active approach to treatment with a vocational component that helps them determine what their futures may look like — without the albatross of alcohol to hold them back.

Women Only Inpatient Program

While alcoholism often brings its victims to the same places of shame and emotional destitution, our experience has revealed that women often face issues, traumas and problems unique to their gender. Our Women's Only Alcoholism Treatment Program is designed for women, led by women and works to build women up through positive affirmation, healing and coping mechanisms that provide a basis for long-term sobriety.

Residential inpatient treatment is just a fraction of what we do, however. Our outpatient treatment program adds another layer of a sobriety safety net that softens a return to our patients' lives, and our Aftercare program gives them a continuous lifeline back to the place where they experienced such profound change.

Does Cornerstone Accept My Health Insurance?

Did you know that if you have private or commercial insurance, your plan will likely pay for alcoholism treatment at in-network facilities even outside of Greenville? Sometimes, you just need to get away and put some distance between you and the place where alcohol has consumed you, and Cornerstone of Recovery accepts a wide variety of insurance policies. Here are just a few of the plans we accept:

Why Consider Leaving Greenville For Treatment

It's simple: Sometimes, the best way forward is by finding a way out. If you've found your life in Greenville to be a wreck because of your alcoholism, than perhaps it's time to call a time out, pack your bags and make the three hour drive to Knoxville, where you can get away from your surroundings and focus solely on yourself.

At Cornerstone, you can recharge your physical, mental and spiritual batteries, heal from the damage done to all areas of your life and rebuild yourself into the best version of yourself possible, so that when you return home, you can pick up the pieces and move forward without the chains of alcoholism to hold you back.
