Alcoholism Treatment & Drug Rehab Program For Those Who've Relapsed

It's Not About Getting Fixed , It's About Getting Well

Addiction Treatment Program Specifically For Those Who Have Relapsed

Our relapse recovery program is specifically designed for men who have experienced relapse after significant recovery time or, who’ve been to treatment before. Treatment for a man in a relapse situation needs to be more engaging and in-depth than what he experienced before. We expect more from the men who join this RR program because they’ve been down the recovery road before – they know how to share, they are familiar with the 12-step concepts, and they’ve usually worked on some of their issues previously. It’s not uncommon for men to enter this program after several stints in traditional treatment programs, quickly finding excitement that they are not doing the same stuff they did in programs before. We dig deeper, and work faster than traditional treatment programs. Our Recovery Renewal Program patients have very little involvement with the men who are new to the recovery process in our Newcomers Program. We keep these communities separate, even in different living quarters, to ensure that we minimize distractions.

If a relapse guy, who’s still trying to figure out his own sobriety, has too much contact with a Newcomer he may become tempted to mentor them and take them on as a pet project – and that typically doesn’t work out well for either of them. Newcomers tend to see relapse guys as “experts” and seek advise from them and while guys who’ve “been there before” have insight and something valuable to offer, we try to moderate involvement between the two communities to ensure that everyone stays focused on themselves.

What is the Recovery Renewal Program Like?

After medical observation and/or medically assisted detox to safely and slowly remove you from the drugs and alcohol, you’ll be immersed in a residential / inpatient program with a group of peers who are on a similar journey. Together, with the guidance of professionals from both academic and recovery backgrounds, you’ll unravel the threads of the life traps that have kept you from the new way of life that recovery promises, and you’ll learn new coping skills to replace those traps. During a stay that averages 35 days, you’ll be immersed in a schedule that keeps your hands busy and your mind occupied; we’ll load you up with relapse prevention methods and tools; we’ll help you build back your self-esteem through group and individual therapy; and we’ll offer your family a part in the healing process as well, so that when your journey here is complete, you can return home a new person – a whole person – with the instruments you need, and the aftercare that Cornerstone provides, to stay clean and maintain a recovery that’s both fulfilling and bountiful.

Your needs are different than those who are going through treatment for the first time; we recognize those needs as unique, and we work with you to develop an individual treatment plan that addresses them on physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual levels that may not have been explored in your previous experiences with drug rehab. We’ll help you address the trauma and resentments that act as mile markers in your life, those moments that your drug use has never been able to erase or anesthetize, no matter how long or how much you’ve tried.

Know this: With Cornerstone’s Recovery Renewal program, you don’t have to run from that pain any longer. You can face it, in an environment that’s cathartic and supportive, and make peace with it. Because only then will you be able to truly know peace and find a way of life you never thought possible.

It’s an intense program, but if you’ve tried to stay clean in the past and have been unsuccessful, even after previous residential treatment stays and 12 Step program attendance, it’s what you need. We know this, because at Cornerstone of Recovery, we’ve been treating addicts and alcoholics from all walks of life for almost three decades, and we know well the triggers and issues that stand in the way of successful long-term recovery. With the tools the Recovery Renewal program offers, as well as guidance in how to implement them in your daily life so that they become second nature, we will help you find that recovery.

Activity Therapy

Patients will participate in various activities that will help reintroduce problem solving and teamwork which helps re-establish trust and builds healthy relationships.

The 12 Step program informs and influences everything we do. We also incorporate the best behavioral health has to offer. We are a dual-diagnosis facility and treat so-occurring psychiatric disorders with psychiatry.

What People Are Saying About Us

I have worked at Cornerstone for over 15 years and I believe we are the best treatment center in Tennessee and probably better than 90% of centers across the country. We've grown from a tiny strip mall to our new multi-million dollar campus and a large staff and I am proud to work with everyone. What our patients tell me is that the staff is friendly, caring, and professional. I hear few complaints about staff and many more complements. The therapists and counselors are among the best I've worked with. If you want to get sober, this is the place to do it.

Would absolutely recommend Cornerstone to anyone looking for a second chance at life! I was in the inpatient program for four months. During that time I received top notch care from the entire staff. The nurses, counselors and psychiatry teams were very caring and professional. The trauma therapy I received there was life changing. Five stars!

A very good experience for me, I learned a great deal, not only about staying sober, but being happy, healthy and being mindful about how to deal with everyday challenges. Cornerstone has a great fitness program, healthy living environment, and the staff always treated me with respect and they are professionals at what they do. I’m coming up one one year of sobriety and I’m grateful for the direction and the tools I’ve received from this facility.

Our family is forever grateful to Cornerstone and its wonderful staff!!! When my husband checked in for treatment, our family life was in shambles. Cornerstone not only helped my husband get sober (and stay sober!), the staff also worked closely with me and my daughters during his treatment and facilitated an amazing family weekend/workshop that helped us deal with resentments and move into a better life for all of us!

Take A Virtual Tour

We put together this virtual tour of our campus so you and your family can have a better idea of what treatment at Cornerstone looks like. Hopefully, this video will be able to help you imagine yourself here with us. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible while here so, if you have more questions about our accommodations, be sure and ask your Care Coordinator when you call. Be sure and check out the other videos across our website that do a good job of demonstrating who we are and what we do. This video is here to show you our campus and help you feel more comfortable by seeing what your environment will be like while you are here.

Healing The Body Starts With What You Put In It.

Enjoy three freshly prepared meals a day including fruit, salad and soup bars. 

Special dietary needs are no problem as well. The team goes out of its way to meet any special dietary restrictions or needs.

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


How long does the program last?

Typically our Inpatient Programs last between 28-35 days. This is considered pretty standard within the treatment industry. In cases where the patient does not feel confident in returning home right away, there are longer term treatment options. 

Option 1:

Would simply extend the patient's inpatient status for additional time until they felt they were ready to return to a normal life. 

Option 2:

The patient would enroll into our Sober Living Facility (SLF) and then attend our Intensive Outpatient Program. This would give them some responsibilites and allow for them to tip a toe back into regular daily routines. There would be several other patients living within the home who are doing the exact same thing, but who are typically at a different place in their recovery journey. 

What is medical detox like?

During your stay in Medical Detox, you’ll be assessed every four hours by nursing staff, who will monitor vital signs like your blood pressure, temperature and pulse oximetry; if warranted by our staff medical director, you may also be prescribed certain medications to make the process more comfortable, including:

  • For benzodiazepine and alcohol withdrawal, we prescribe Phenobarbital;
  • For opiate withdrawal, we tend to use Subutex, Robaxin and/or Clonidine;
  • For cocaine, we utilize Bromocriptine.

While in Medical Detox, you’ll also be provided with three delicious and nourishing meals a day and be given an opportunity to attend an orientation group, an evening wrap-up meeting and other therapeutic sessions to ease you into the routine of community-oriented treatment.

Ultimately, however, you’re given ample opportunity to relax, recharge and allow your body and mind time to heal themselves before you’re integrated into a treatment community of peers. A typical detox stay is three to five days, but depending on the severity of a patient’s symptoms, it may require more time. Our goal is to provide you with that time while keeping tabs on your physical well-being and ensuring that your stay is as comfortable and safe as possible.

How much is treatment going to cost me?

That depends entirely on your situation. Unfortunately, there really isn't a cookie cutter response that covers each patients unique scenario. We have done our best to answer as much information about insurance options, private pay and out of pocket expeses on the page linked below. 


How much does treatment cost?

What kind of therapy do you provide?

The goal of Cornerstone of Recovery’s treatment model is to help individuals who are suffering from substance abuse and related problems find healing and, ultimately, ongoing recovery. This is accomplished through a process of assessment and treatment planning that attempts to determine the nature and extent of the substance use disorder as well as any co-occurring disorders that significantly impact the person and interfere with his or her ability to accomplish life goals. We believe in the value of the individual and strive to support each person on his or her unique journey toward health and life satisfaction.

A number of modalities, techniques and approaches are used to accomplish these goals. Foremost among these is our belief in developing a therapeutic community in which the individual can safely identify and work through the issues and problems that have brought them into treatment.
