Cornerstone of Recovery Is Proud To Serve Those Who Have Given So Much For Their Country.

Alcoholism Treatment & Alcohol Rehab Through Community Cares Network Knoxville TN

You’ve given years of your life in service to your country, and now you’re in need of alcoholism treatment in Knoxville through the Community Cares Network. As a leading drug and alcohol treatment provider not just in East Tennessee, but throughout the United States, we at Cornerstone of Recovery consider it an honor to offer you the help that you need.

We’re not just another alcohol rehab in Knoxville — we’re an organization that’s been part of this community for more than 30 years, and we’ve long recognized that veterans of the United States military deserve access to the best treatment available. Thanks to the Veterans Administration’s Community Cares Network, that treatment can be found here at Cornerstone of Recovery.

Thanks to the VA MISSION Act signed into law in 2018, the VA now works with “regional networks of high-performing health care providers who will work together with VA providers and practitioners to provide medical” services, including alcoholism treatment, “to eligible veterans who are unable to receive care at local VA medical centers.” So what does that mean for you, as a veteran needing an alcohol rehab in Knoxville and wanting to get it through the CCN at Cornerstone of Recovery?

There are some steps you’ll need to take in order for the VA to determine your eligibility to receive treatment through the Community Cares Network, and the VA must give approval for you to get help with us — but the good news is that we have a dedicated regional outreach manager who will walk you through each step of the process and help you navigate getting that authorization.

With her help, you don’t have to spend days, weeks or even months on a waiting list to get alcoholism treatment in Knoxville through the VA — you can get the help you need here at Cornerstone of Recovery, where we offer a full continuum of care that has been successful at treating thousands of alcoholics and addicts from all walks of life and all across the country. From our safe, comfortable Medical Detox, where you’ll be slowly and safely weaned off of alcohol, to our residential inpatient treatment that lasts up to 45 days (or longer, in some cases), to our Intensive Outpatient Program that allows you to continue your sobriety journey will staying with us as part of our Sober Living Community, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

And as a veteran, you’ll not only have access to our broad array of therapies and sobriety tools to help you get sober and stay that way, you’ll also be eligible to attend weekly groups that are led by and consist of fellow veterans. As a collective of like-minded former servicemembers, you’ll be look at the periods of your life where your drinking and your service intersected, and you’ll begin to unravel them, and you’ll also discover how your training can benefit you in your sobriety. If there are issues related to your service, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, we have trauma therapists on staff who can help, as well as psychological tools like Cognitive Processing Therapy that will help you find the peace you deserve for the service you gave.

At Cornerstone of Recovery, we can help you find that peace. We’re grateful for your service, and now we want to serve you — as the best choice for an alcohol rehab in Knoxville through the Community Cares Network. If you’re ready to do something about your problem, we’re ready to help. Reach out to Nora today, and we’ll get you the alcoholism treatment you need.

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.

Healing The Body Starts With What You Put In It.

Our food and beverage partners recognize that meals prepared from scratch and with care help the healing process by providing three hot, freshly prepared meals each and every day.

Special dietary needs are no problem as well. The team goes out of its way to meet any special dietary restrictions or needs. They make from-scratch veggie patties on days when burgers are served, prefer real-food alternatives to nutritional supplements and prepare meat-free entrees as requested.

Enjoy a cup of soup made fresh daily or maybe make a salad the exact way you like it and top it off with one of the from scratch salad dressings made right in our kitchen. 

In addition to meals in our dining hall, an on-campus store is always well stocked with snacks, beverages, sweets and other comforts.

Activities Fitness & Leisure

When most people think of rehab, they picture groups of emotional individuals huddled in circles, crying their eyes out as they talk about their problems. We’re not saying that won’t happen here … but it’s certainly not the ONLY thing that will happen! Life, after all, is about a balance … so to prepare you for a life in recovery, you’ll have time and be encouraged to pursue that:

In Fitness Therapy, you’ll be in our on-campus gymnasium several times a week, nurturing the body that was so long neglected when you were drinking or using. You’ll activate natural endorphins that remind you what it’s like to feel good naturally, and you’ll re-learn how to care for your physical self while our other programming addresses your mental and emotional health.

In Activity Therapy, you’ll learn to trust, to laugh and to take risks. Whether it’s playing a silly game that helps you get to know the members of community and puts a goofy smile on your face, or taking a turn on our on-campus ropes course where you’ll be encouraged to face your fears, you’ll be reminded that life can be a beautiful thing in which to take part.

On the weekends and in the evenings, you’ll develop bonds with the members of your treatment community that sometimes last long after you leave treatment. Whether it’s watching TV together in the evenings, having long conversations while you walk the nature trail on our 24-acre campus or have fun on a weekend outing to the mountains or the movies or to go bowling, you’ll learn that you can have fun, sober, and do so with other recovering people who want nothing more than to see you get better.

Newcomers Inpatient Program

The Newcomers Residential Alcohol and Drug Rehab Program usually lasts from 28 to 35 days, during which time patients are immersed in an individual treatment plan that addresses their needs, backgrounds and situations. From 12 Step recovery to peer support to psychiatric care for dual diagnosis issues to a host of therapeutic modalities, it's a path for those dealing with alcoholism for the first time.

Recovery Renewal Inpatient Program

Recovery is often not a "one and done" process. Sometimes, individuals with previous treatment experience or significant amounts of sobriety can relapse, and that's where our Recovery Renewal Residential Inpatient Program can help. Through intense therapeutic work, it addresses the reasons those individuals have been unable to stay sober and helps them find healthy coping skills.

Young Adult Inpatient Program

Young men between the ages of 18 and 26 often need an alcoholism treatment program to engage restless bodies and active minds. That's where our Young Adult Residential rehab and recovery program comes in. It's specifically designed to meet the challenges that this age group faces, and our clinical staff focuses on developmental issues, behavior styles and energy levels specific to the young adult.

Women Only Inpatient Program

While recovery is available to anyone, the individual paths to a new way of life on the other side of alcoholism are unique to the individual. Women, in particular, often face a number of issues and traumas unique to their gender. As part of our Women's Only Alcoholism Treatment Program, female patients will find a safe space to process their issues, bond with other women and find hope, healing and recovery from alcoholism.

After residential inpatient, there are a number of treatment options for continuing care, including our Intensive Outpatient Program, which gives patients a chance to extend their stay; Support Living facilities, which provide on-campus or nearby housing for IOP clients and those in our partial hospitalization program; in-treatment and follow-up mental health care as part of our psychiatric program, which helps with the regulation of co-occurring disorders; as well as Aftercare groups for alumni who wish to maintain contact with the facility that helped their lives change.

Women's Addiction Treatment Program In Knoxville TN

For years, the patients at Cornerstone of Recovery were combined into coeducational groups that focused on an all-for-one approach to rehabilitation and treatment. But when new facilities were built and programs were moved to a single campus in 2017, the clinical staff at Cornerstone saw an opportunity to create a unique treatment path designed specifically for female patients.

“We had an opportunity to pull the women out and give them their own program,” Program Director Anne Young says. “Women are so good at mentoring other women. All we had to do was create a safe place and put them together.”

At Cornerstone, we recognize that women face issues in addiction and alcoholism that are unique to them. We realize that it’s difficult, and sometimes impossible, to deal with trauma caused by men if men are a part of the process, and for that reason alone, all of our processing and therapeutic groups are led by female counselors. Most of them are in recovery themselves and know full well the issues that female patients must address to sustain long-term recovery, many of them presenting hand-in-hand with addiction to alcohol and drugs.
