Inpatient Drug Rehab & Addiction Treatment Charlotte NC
North Carolina, like the rest of the country, is in a protracted struggle against the tide of addiction. It's a much-publicized battle that claimed more than 68,000 lives in 2018, the same year that a Duke University team published a study with troubling results for North Carolina and, by extension, the residents of the Charlotte area: The state experienced an 800 percent increase in opioid drug deaths from 1999 to 2016, and heroin overdoses have grown 10-fold in North Carolina since 2010. There are plenty of resources in the Charlotte area pushing back against those numbers, but none of them offer addiction treatment quite like a certain facility four hours to the west.
Cornerstone of Recovery, located just on the other side of the Great Smoky Mountains outside of Knoxville, is so much more than just another drug rehab. Since 1989, we've grown from a small, 18-bed facility to one of the largest residential treatment providers in the state of Tennessee, operating off of a 25-acre campus onto which we moved in 2017 where we occupy four new facilities on the banks of the Little River. From our modern and comfortable residence hall to our dining facilities that serve three hot meals a day to our state-of-the-art fitness center, we offer addiction treatment that combines traditional 12 Step-based methods with innovative evidence-based therapeutic modalities, all of it designed with a singular purpose: to give the patients who come to us from across the country the best possible chance at sustained recovery from addiction.
Their journeys begin in our safe, medically supervised detox unit, where after 3 to 5 days, they'll transition to one of our four addiction treatment paths: Newcomers, for first-time drug rehab patients who will learn about their affliction in addition to recovering from it; Recovery Renewal, for those who have been to addiction treatment previously or who have relapsed after periods of abstinence; Young Adult, for men ages 18 to 26 who need some life direction as well as addiction recovery; and our Women's Program, a sisterhood of women who empower one another even as they recover from the issues, traumas and challenges that accompany their addiction.
Within those programs, patients will receive one-on-one counseling, an opportunity for family therapy with loved ones — including a weekend in our immersive Family Fundamentals program, a two-day course that helps heal the rifts caused by addiction — 12 Step facilitation, peer support, educational lectures and more. We encourage both Fitness and Activity Therapy, we evaluate every patient for dual diagnosis of co-occurring mental health issues and provide appropriate psychiatric treatment, and we help patients develop a solid and specific aftercare plan that will help them continue their recovery journey after they leave addiction treatment.
We do all of that and more, because while abstinence is the goal, addiction recovery is about so much more. And because we're in network with most commercial and private health insurance plans, we accept patients from across the country — including many who live in or near Charlotte and are in need of addiction treatment.
What People Are Saying About Us
the first step to the rest of your life starts at cornerstone of recovery
Cornerstone of Recovery is roughly 230 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina, but sometimes a distance of hours and miles makes all the difference in the world for those requiring treatment for drug addiction. With a nationwide reputation for as one of the top rehab centers in the country, begin each patient's journey with an individualized treatment plan that identifies their specific needs.
Our goal is to treat the underlying physical, mental, emotional and spiritual maladies that contribute to, precipitate and were caused by addiction, because if recovery were simply a matter of putting down the drugs and walking away, our services would be unnecessary. Addiction, however, is a disease, and those who suffer from it continue to use in spite of negative consequences.
At Cornerstone, wherever you fall on the scale, we have a program to meet your needs, and treatment services and therapies that will help address the life traps and stumbling blocks that have kept you in a vicious cycle of drug use for so long.

Why Consider Leaving Charlotte For Treatment
Whether you come to Cornerstone of Recovery in need of addiction treatment or an outpatient program, you'll find that it's easier to concentrate on the task at hand if you're removed from a place so closely associated with your using. While many Charlotte residents with addiction problems can and do recover in their hometown, many others find it beneficial to call a "time out," so to speak, on their lives.
By relocating to Knoxville and becoming an active part of the recovery community at Cornerstone of Recovery, they've removed themselves from triggers and temptations associated with the place in which they did so much of their using.
An extended stay as part of our inpatient and outpatient programs gives patients all the time they need to stop using, lose the desire to use and find a new way to live, so that when they time comes and they feel ready, they can return to Charlotte prepared to use the tools of recovery to stay clean and live productive, fulfilling lives.
