Residential Alcohol & Drug Rehab & Recovery
Inpatient / Residential Addiction Treatment Program
Let’s be clear: For those caught in the grips of addiction, drugs and alcohol are part of the problem, but they’re not the only problem.
For those who have struggled with drugs and alcohol, that realization is the first step of a new journey, one that addresses all of the issues, experiences, traumas and tragedies that precipitate addiction and are compounded by ongoing substance abuse. At Cornerstone of Recovery, we’ve had almost 30 years of experience in treating the whole person, not just the drugs upon which you’ve become dependent.
If you’re considering addiction treatment for the first time, know this: We understand, in large part because we’ve been exactly where you are right now. The desperation, the crushing loneliness, the absolutely hopelessness, the utter despair … we’ve felt those things, because many of the staff members at Cornerstone are in recovery themselves. We’ve walked in your shoes, and we know the pain you’re in and the fear you feel at what will happen next. If your addiction has spiraled out of control, then you probably realize that the misery you’re experiencing now will continue to grow; but you’re probably also terrified of an unknown future, one without the drugs you’ve come to rely on for comfort and emotional anesthesia.
At Cornerstone, we can assure you of one thing: That future, while unknown to you and perhaps frightening, is filled with endless possibilities of wonder and beauty. You may not see what life looks like free from the bondage of your addiction, but we do, because we’re living it, every day. Part of the recovery process mandates that those of us in recovery carry the message to those who still suffer, so know this: A new way of life begins with a single step. On the other end of that initial phone call, you’ll find our admissions counselors willing help you assess how serious your problem is and determine the best course of treatment for you.
For some, that might be an intensive outpatient addiction treatment program; for many others, that will be residential inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. However, whatever your preconceptions about treatment may be, we ask that you put them in check, because at Cornerstone of Recovery, you’ll find a therapeutic environment that’s not like any other. After a period of medical observation and/or medically assisted detox from the drugs and alcohol, you’ll be integrated into a community of peers, where you’ll receive around-the-clock care in a supportive environment of individuals all working toward the same goal: long-term recovery and a life you never thought possible.
Throughout the course of a typical 28- to 35-day stay, you’ll be assigned an individual treatment plan by a team of counselors and other professionals who assess your needs based on your background, your drug and alcohol use and your living situation. We combine traditional 12 Step models of recovery with clinically proven scientific methods in a number of different settings, from psychological and physical testing/assessments to group therapy with your peers to family therapy to daily 12 Step meetings to education programs and leisure/fitness activities, all designed to address your physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs. We’re a program that’s accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, and we also adhere to the principles of 12 Step recovery, meaning that we maintain your integrity and your personal beliefs, whatever those might be, while helping you to discover who you truly are. It’s our experience that addiction stunts emotional growth and mental development, and it often takes time for us, addicts and alcoholics, to figure out who we really are and the type of person we want to become. Through the Newcomer Program, you’ll be given that time and the guidance you’ll need to make those discoveries.
As a patient in the Newcomer Program, you’ll find that you aren’t alone and that your problems aren’t unique, no matter how isolated you might currently feel. You’ll learn that addiction is a disease – that you’re a sick person, not a bad person, and that treatment of the body, mind and spirit are necessary components of the process. You’ll receive therapeutic support from master’s level clinicians and therapists from both the academic field and the East Tennessee recovery community, many of whom were once Cornerstone patients themselves.
