Why Use Your TriCare Policy at Cornerstone?

Cornerstone of Recovery was established in 1989 by a recovering alcoholic who believed passionately in second chances, and from that initial bedrock of traditional, abstinence-based treatment methods, a robust and life-changing program was developed. Today, our accommodations resemble a college campus more than they do a medical facility, because knowledge is what we impart alongside therapy, and those who come to us for help with a drinking problem will learn from the moment they arrive that alcoholism isn’t a failure of willpower or a moral shortcoming — it’s a disease, recognized as such by science and medicine. As a result, we’ve developed a thorough biological, psychological and social treatment program that does more than help you stop drinking — it helps you look at the areas of your life that alcohol has impacted, the issues and traumas that may play a part in your drinking, and the future you want to create for yourself on the other side of your problem. From Fitness Therapy to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, from Activity Therapy to Schema Therapy, from group therapy to one-on-one counseling to family therapy to aftercare planning, we’ll address all the areas of your life that alcohol has damaged, and help you not only repair it, but find a way to live that you never thought possible.

Cornerstone of Recovery and veterans

Military culture often celebrates drinking, and it can be difficult for veteran patients to acknowledge that a substance so long a part of celebration has not become their biggest enemy. That may be due to a number of service-related factors, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or other traumas experienced during the line of duty. We have psychotherapeutic processes like Cognitive Processing Therapy to address those issues, as well as specially trained trauma therapists on staff who work one on one with those patients. In addition, all of our veterans meet weekly in a combined group that’s led by a member of the Cornerstone staff who’s also a veteran, and these groups help examine the ways in which alcohol is inextricably tied to military culture, how it may have impacted your service or your life after the military, and areas of your training that you can draw upon as tools for sobriety.

At Cornerstone of Recovery, we recognize that military personnel and veterans seeking an addiction treatment center in Knoxville that accepts TriCare have given of themselves — physically, emotionally and mentally — in order to serve our country. Now, it’s our turn to serve them, and we strive to do so with the same distinction they exhibited when they wore the uniform. We’re grateful to be an inpatient alcohol rehab in Knoxville that accepts Tricare, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

The staff, Counselors, and Therapist's are all amazing and truly caring. I will miss so many of them. The food isn't the greatest but they do occasionally hit one out of the ball park. Especially the brownies. The Medical staff is badly understaffed. My only complaint is they sent me to two out of network doctor appointments while I was in R. And R. I've tried talking to many people but keep getting brushed off. But this is just my experience. If your looking for your best Chance of sobriety. This is the place. You learn so much about yourself and why we do the things we do. And how to change those behaviors. I highly recommend Corner Stone of Recovery.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Cornerstone. I went there the last time for me in Sept.2001 and left in March 2002 and because of the treatment that I received I have been clean and sober for 21 years. I took a early retirement from the railroad and became a substance abuse counselor because I wanted what the staff at that time had and to do for others what they did for me. Thank You Cornerstone. If you are reading this and on the fence look no further because they are the best especially if you are serious about Recovery.

The staff is second to none. most of the councilors had been in my shoes and that alone was comforting. Every employee from the nurses to the kitchen staff seemed so genuine. There may be nicer, newer facilities around the country but i would pick the staff at Cornerstone over any of them.
