Alcoholism Treatment & Alcohol Rehab Atlanta Georgia

It doesn't get the news coverage that other substances do, but alcohol is a deadly substance for individuals across the country, including many in the Atlanta area. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism estimates that roughly 88,000 people die annually from alcohol-related causes, and thousands more struggle with a whole host of problems: legal issues, health struggles, job losses and family discord, just to name a few. Fortunately, for those in the Atlanta area who want to do something about those problems and stop drinking, there's a place where they can find and learn how to maintain sobriety.

Within a few hours’ drive of Atlanta is a nationally respected alcoholism treatment center that has helped thousands of people get sober over the past three decades. As a comprehensive alcohol rehab, Cornerstone of Recovery provides a full continuum of care that begins with safe, medically supervised detox from alcohol and includes treatment in one of our four comprehensive residential inpatient programs: Newcomers, for those just starting out on their sobriety journey; Recovery Renewal, for individuals with previous alcoholism treatment experience or periods of sobriety; Young Adult, for young men ages 18-26 that need a more active program; and our unique Women’s Program, designed to provide a gender-specific safe space for female clients.

In addition, we provide comprehensive family therapy and an immersive family fundamentals weekend, during which patients and their family members address issues and problems that have arisen around alcoholism. Individuals who also 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 an Atlanta resident looking for alcoholism treatment, look a little farther to the north, and you’ll find one of the best at Cornerstone of Recovery.

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?

Cornerstone of Recovery is situated in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, and since 1989, we’ve helped those who suffer from addiction and alcoholism find a new way to live.

As one of the nation’s most respected substance abuse treatment centers – as well as the largest residential treatment center in the state of Tennessee – we provide patients with a broad array of recovery tools, from medically assisted detox services that help addicted patients safely withdraw from any and all drugs to models of treatment based in both science and tradition. From scientifically proven methods like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Schema Therapy to 12 Step based therapy with a group of peers, our residential/inpatient programs are tailored to an individual’s specific needs. Our treatment paths meet patients wherever they are, from first-time treatment seekers to those who have been through the process before to a host of career-specific professional programs:

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.

Does Cornerstone Accept My Health Insurance?

If you're a resident of Atlanta or the surrounding area, and you have commercial or private health insurance, chances are good that not only do we accept your plan, we'll work hard to maximize your behavioral health benefit coverage so that you can use your insurance right here in East Tennessee. Most private insurance plans cover facilities across state lines, which means that if you need to get out of the Atlanta area in order to find sobriety, we're the alcohol rehab you've been looking for. Wondering if we accept your insurance? Call us, and we'll help you figure it out. Some of the plans with which we're in network 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

If your plan isn't on this list, that doesn't mean you're not covered; it just means our trained and compassionate Admissions staff will work with you to examine the benefits you do have, and whether Cornerstone is the right facility for you.

However, we're well aware that addicts and alcoholics aren't exactly up to date on insurance premiums, nor are they flush with cash. We encourage you not to let the lack of resources discourage you from calling us. We'll talk through your options for payment, or we'll refer you to a facility that may be able to help you better than we can, because that's what recovery is about: offering a helping hand to those who suffer, regardless of whether they come to us for treatment.

What Happens Next?

Far be it from anyone to take medical advice from a website, but we can tell you this with the authority fostered by our 30 years in the business: Alcoholism is a killer. It takes lives, as the aforementioned statistics detail ... sometimes quickly, and sometimes slowly, but for those who suffer, death is virtually assured.

But it doesn't have to be. If you want to stop but you can't, or you're concerned that your drinking problem is getting out of control and you want to put on the brakes before it robs you of everything, then it's worth 10 or 15 minutes to give us a call. Pick up the phone and reach out. Worst-case scenario? You hang up and keep drinking. But you might find a voice on the other end that offers you a some hope for a better future.

Nothing happens, though, until you pick up the phone. Our Admissions staff is standing by, ready to help you come up with the treatment plans that will help you stop drinking, lose the desire to do so and plan for a life of long-term sobriety.

Why Consider Leaving Atlanta For Your Treatment?

Because addiction treatment often requires a “reset button” for your life, a relocation to a new environment that’s free from the triggers and stresses of home that often act as impediments to long-lasting recovery. While there are numerous treatment facilities in the Atlanta area, there is no other rehab center quite like Cornerstone, where the majority of our clinical staff and many of our administrative staff are in recovery from alcoholism and addiction themselves.

They speak the language, they know of the challenges and they have a keen sense of empathy and understanding because they've battled the same diseases that our patients do. With their guidance, and through immersion in a residential inpatient program, you’ll develop a safety net of peers and staff members with experience in both academia and long-term recovery that will help you find the strength, serenity and independence you need to return to Atlanta and begin your life anew – a life that won’t be possible while shackled by the chains of alcoholism.

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