Alcoholism Treatment & Alcohol Rehab Cleveland TN

While alcohol isn't as problematic in Cleveland, Tenn., as it is in the rest of the state or the nation at large, it's still a problem, and it continues to grow.

According to the website, rates of heavy drinking by men in Bradley County increased by 15.5 percent from 2005 to 2012; for women, it was a 11.6 percent increase. Binge drinking rates grew by 75.7 percent for women and 43.5 percent for men during a 10-year period from 2002-2012, and deaths due to cirrhosis of the liver increased by more than 30 percent for men and women over a 34-year period, from 1980 to 2014. In addition, alcohol contributed to 28 percent of all motor vehicle deaths from 2008-2012.

John Barleycorn, as it's colloquially known, continues to claim lives, but not before it contributes to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual distress first. Fortunately for those who struggle with alcoholism in Cleveland, there's a treatment facility an hour and a half to the north that's been helping addicts and alcoholics overcome their dependence for 30 years.

Cornerstone of Recovery was founded by a recovering alcoholic who wanted to share with others the relief and deliverance he himself had discovered. What began as a small 18-bed facility with 22 staff members in a strip mall outside of Knoxville has grown into one of the largest residential treatment providers in the state of Tennessee. Since 1989, we've admitted patients from across the state, including many from Cleveland, who are able to stop drinking and find a new way to live.

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?

What Is Involved With The Alcoholism Treatment Programs?

Like most addictive substances, alcohol can ruin lives, but it can also claim them. As a result, alcoholism withdrawal is something we take seriously at Cornerstone of Recovery. After your admission to our facility, we'll examine you for health problems and get you admitted to Medical Detox as quickly as possible. Our around-the-clock nursing staff will monitor your vital signs for potential medical emergencies and administer comfort medication to ensure that your detox is as safe and comfortable as possible.

After three- to five-days of professional care in Medical Detox, you'll then transition to one of our four primary residential programs. Through a series of questionnaires, we'll determine what issues you struggle with and what sort of therapy you need, because it's our belief that the substance doesn't matter nearly as much as the reasons you continue to use them in spite of negative consequences. You'll address those issues in one of the following programs:

Newcomers Inpatient Program

Newcomer's Residential Inpatient Treatment, for patients who have no previous exposure to treatment or sobriety. Our goal with those beginning their sobriety journey for the first time is to educate them about their affliction as well as to help them heal from it, so that they're better equipped to understand the disease concept and, by proxy, themselves.

Recovery Renewal Inpatient Program

Recovery Renewal Residential Inpatient Treatment, for those who have been through treatment previously but have been unable to stay sober on the outside. Relapse is more common than people think, but it doesn't have to happen to everyone. Through this program, patients will address outstanding issues and traumas that have kept them repeating cycles of behavior that are detrimental to long-term sobriety.

Young Adult Inpatient Program

The Young Adult Residential Inpatient Program, which provides a more hands-on approach to treatment for young men ages 18 to 26. Many of them began using drugs and alcohol before their brains were fully developed, and as a result, they require a unique alcoholism and addiction treatment program that engages their bodies and their minds in an active capacity.

Women Only Inpatient Program

Women's Only Residential Inpatient Treatment, designed for female clients who require an environment in which they feel safe to process the traumas and issues unique to their gender. in the Women's Program, patients form tight-knit bonds that allow them to empower one another and engage in peer support that's unrivaled in many other treatment centers.

Beyond residential treatment, we also offer a supportive Sober Living environment on campus, as well as numerous auxiliary therapies to all patients: Activity Therapy, Fitness, family therapy and more all make up what we refer to as a "whole-person" approach to treatment. By addressing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components, we help patients understand that alcohol is just a symptom of a bigger problem, and to conquer that problem, no stone must be left unturned.

Does Cornerstone Accept My Health Insurance?

If you've made it this far and you're still with us, congratulations. You're serious about getting help, and that's a big step. However, we're sure you're wondering: How do you pay for treatment? Yes, we are a private facility, and we fully recognize that many addicts and alcoholics aren't exactly well off. However, there are options that will cover your stay with us — especially if you have private or commercial health insurance. Your insurance most likely provides behavioral health benefits that cover substance abuse treatment at facilities like Cornerstone, and chances are, we're in network with yours. Some of the plans we accept include:


Blue Cross Blue Shield
Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal
Crescent Health Solutions

Empire Blue Cross
Health Alliance
HealthSmart: Benefit Solutions
Horizon Healthcare
Magellan Behavioral Health

Meritain Health
ValueOptions/Beacon Health Options

Rehab Center that takes aetna blue cross blue shield untied healthcare Humana Cigna

Don't see your plan on this list? Don't give up hope. Just because it's not listed here doesn't mean we don't accept it, and if you're covered under the statewide program known as TennCare, we have an option for that, as well. Our sister facility, Stepping Stone to Recovery, offers the same quality of care at a lower cost, and it's in network with the Amerigroup and BlueCare managed care organizations under the TennCare umbrella. You'll get the same quality of treatment, from Medical Detox to Residential Inpatient to our Intensive Outpatient option, all of which use the time-tested formula that's successfully treated thousands of alcoholics and addicts over the past three decades.

What Happens Next?

Of course, you can't begin to explore any of these options unless you pick up the phone. That's the first step, and we fully recognize that's the most difficult. It's not easy admitting defeat, but trust us when we say that no matter how hard you fight, alcoholism is always going to win. It's a cunning, baffling and powerful illness, and your inability to get sober on your own doesn't mean you're weak or deficient. It just means that you're sick, and you need help — which is where we come in.

But we can't do that until you give us a call. Our trained and compassionate Admissions counselors are standing by. They won't give you medical advice or harangue you or talk down to you. They'll simply talk you through the process, gather your information and help you make plans to start your life over as a sober, successful individual who can return home to Cleveland to make a life for yourself that you've never imagined was possible.


Why Consider Leaving Your Home For Your Treatment?

There are many alcohol rehab centers around the Southeast, but there are none quite like Cornerstone. Here, the therapeutic value of one alcoholic helping another is without parallel, which is why roughly 90 percent of our clinical staff members are in recovery from alcohol or substance abuse themselves. They understand their patients because they once sat in those same chairs, struggling to get sober and not entirely convinced it was possible. It is, and at Cornerstone, we can show you how. You may find that kind of help and hope at other facilities in or around Cleveland, or you can take a chance on getting out of the place where your life has gone awry and hit the reset button here at Cornerstone. You're not running away from your problems by coming here; you're getting away from them temporarily, so that when you return to Cleveland, you do so with a stronger mind and a sober heart that allows you to live life on life's terms.

Still not sure Cornerstone is the right treatment center for you?
