Addiction Treatment & Rehab Centers in Tennessee

Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in Tennessee

213
Total Rehab centers in Tennessee

Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Tennessee

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Recovery and aftercare are important steps in the lifelong process that begins once addiction treatment is complete. The ongoing support that aftercare provides can help prevent relapse and increase chances of long-term recovery success. Aftercare can include mutual support groups, individual/group/family therapy, and sober living homes.

Information about rehab in Tennessee

TN Substance Abuse Facts

Through national media coverage of the dramatic increase in opioid use and opioid-related overdoses nationwide, Americans are more aware of the harmful effects of drug and alcohol abuse than ever before. This awareness, however, has not been enough to reduce the rate of addiction.

In every state, the problem remains serious and widespread—and Tennessee is no different. Based on surveys and statistics gathered between 2014 and 2015, we now know the following about Tennesseans and addiction:1–4

  • Approximately 41,000 teenagers (8.2%) ages 12 to 17 reported using alcohol in the past month.
  • Of those aged 12 and older, about 14,000 people admitted to using heroin in the last year.
  • Around 2.3 million people older than 12 had used alcohol in the last month.
  • In the same age group, nearly 290,000 (5.3%) of them had an alcohol use disorder (addiction).
  • Among those 12 and older across the United States, 7.7 million people had an illicit drug addiction.
  • In Tennessee, 1,451 died from drug overdoses in 2015, far more than died in car crashes that year.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help in TN

Seeing these numbers, we know many people in Tennessee—and throughout the country—need quality substance abuse treatment. Knowing where to find it is another issue.

The directory listings on this page are a good start. You can search substance abuse treatment centers throughout your state and in surrounding states to find the right one for you. You can even refine your search to include specific details that may be important to you in the setting where you get sober, such as gender-specific or faith-based programs. Additionally, you can call our knowledgeable treatment consultants at to connect with treatment providers near you. They can also answer many of your questions and help ease the anxiety many people have when first looking for treatment.

If you have health insurance, simply calling the number on the back of your insurance card will connect you with someone who can tell you which treatment providers are covered by your plan, as well as give you details about out-of-network coverage, if that is your preference.

Where Else Can I Find Help TN?

Because drug and alcohol addiction is such a big issue in our country, government-funded programs like Medicaid and Medicare offer provisions specifically for substance abuse treatment to those who qualify. Your Tennessee State Health and Human Services website has all the details for Medicaid and other programs like it.

Paying cash for treatment often seems out of reach for the average person, but most treatment centers really do want you to get the help you need and will work with you on the financial side of things. From sliding scales based on income to monthly payment plans to partial or full scholarships, there are several options available to help you afford addiction care—just ask.

Community resources such as local health clinics, charitable organizations, and churches frequently have referrals to qualified providers, and many have funds reserved to offer those in dire need. Do your homework, make some calls, and don’t give up until you’ve found the best treatment program for you.
