Alcoholism Treatment & Alcohol Rehab Chattanooga TN

If you’re seeking alcoholism treatment in Chattanooga, Tennessee, your best bet is to find the recovery program with the best understanding of the problem.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines alcoholism as “a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psycho-social and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestation. The disease is often progressive and fatal.” In the 30 years of experience we have at Cornerstone of Recovery, we’re acutely aware of those factors, and our mission is to halt the progression before it leads to death.

It’s been our goal since 1989, when our founder, Bill Hood, leveraged everything he owned to open a small facility in a strip mall outside of Knoxville to give hope to the hopeless. As a former executive for a national company, he had lost it all before getting sober 10 years earlier, and he knew from personal experience how devastating alcoholism can be, and what an overwhelming need there was then — and still is — for alcoholism treatment in Tennessee.

At the time, Cornerstone of Recovery had beds for 18 patients and room for 22 staff members; now, we have more than 100 beds and roughly 250 staff members managing four distinct programs out of a four-facility campus on the banks of the Little River, just two hours north of Chattanooga near Knoxville.

What Is Involved With The Alcoholism Treatment Program?

The first step in the alcoholism treatment process is through Medical Detox, where patients are slowly and safely weaned from the booze that has ravaged their bodies, impaired their minds and destroyed their spirits. Our trained medical staff members monitor patients around the clock during a typical three- to five-day detox stay, and once the initial fog of alcoholism has lifted, we integrate those patients into a community of peers all working toward the same goal: relief from the disease that wants to claim their lives. Those peer groups include the following drug and alcohol rehab programs:

Newcomers Residential Program

For first-time treatment patients who are given a basic education about their ailment as well as the tools necessary to combat it.

Young Adult Residential

For younger addicts and alcoholics ages 18 to 26 whose emotional growth has been stunted and lives have been derailed before they’ve truly begun.

Recovery Renewal Program

A program for those who are treatment-savvy but haven’t managed to apply the tools they’ve learned toward long-term sobriety outside of treatment.

Women's Drug Rehab Program

A program for female patients that gives them the safety and security they need to focus on the issues specific to their gender.

What Happens Next?

Alcoholism treatment for Chattanooga residents, we’ve discovered through our decades of work in the field, has to be more than just the cessation of drinking. The alcohol is just a symptom of a much bigger problem, an internal one that can only be addressed through a dissection of emotional issues, stumbling blocks and life traps that keep alcoholics trapped in the vicious cycle of a disease that’s leading them down a ever-darker path toward an absolute finality. That journey can be halted, however, and new paths can be forged; through the long-term sobriety that’s the ultimate goal of all patients at Cornerstone of Recovery, those who seek our help can put their disease into remission and find a new way of life that’s more fulfilling and rewarding than they ever imagined.
