    Components of Our Knoxville Residential Addiction Treatment Program

    When participating in our residential addiction treatment in Knoxville, clients will be able to participate in several different services based on their unique treatment needs. At the time of admission, each client will be evaluated, and an individualized care plan will be developed so that he or she gets the most out of his or her time spent residential care. Within that care plan are often a combination of/all of the following components.


    When clients come to treatment after abusing addictive substances, there are great chances that they are dealing with physical and/or psychological dependence. When someone is dependent on one or more substances, he or she cannot stop using without suffering painful withdrawal symptoms. To help clients navigate the process of stopping the physical action of using, residential addiction treatment offers detox services.

    When in detox, a client will be provided with medical and psychological resources for the duration of the process. Some clients, such as those who are addicted to opioids, alcohol, or benzodiazepines, might be provided with prescription medications to help them wean off of said medications so they do not plunge into severe and potentially grave withdrawal symptoms. Detoxing from other drugs, such as meth or cocaine, can be treated through over-the-counter medications and time. Unfortunately, the detox process is not always a piece of cake, however, when detoxing in a facility, clients can go through this stage of their recovery as comfortable as possible.


    Once clients have been cleared of all mind-altering substances and are medically sound enough to participate in therapy, they will begin doing so. Nearly everyone who attends our Knoxville residential addiction treatment will partake in the following therapies:

    • Individual therapy – Working one-on-one with a therapist, a client will utilize this time to discuss underlying causes of the substance use disorder as well as any other challenges that he or she has faced/is currently facing that stand between him or her and recovery. The therapist will guide the client in ways that promote personal development and growth.
    • Group therapy – Group therapy, which works similarly to individual therapy, however, is conducted in a group atmosphere, offers clients the ability to heal in the company of others who are working towards similar goals. Through group therapy, clients can address issues related to interpersonal relationships, social skills, behaviors, and support systems. All group therapy sessions are led by one or more therapists, depending on the size of the group.
    • Family therapy – Addiction is a disease that does not just affect the user, but also his or her family. Bringing the family into a therapy session with the client, whether in person or via phone, allows everyone who has been touched by this disease the opportunity to begin healing. A therapist will lead the charge and help moderate conversations between family members in an effort to forge positive change, good communication, respect, trust, and overall growth for the family unit.

    In addition to these therapies, residential addiction treatment in Knoxville Tennessee also places focus on skill-building exercises (e.g. relapse prevention skills) to help support their established sobriety when they integrate back into their everyday lives.


    It comes as no surprise that several people throughout the United States are either uninformed or misinformed about the disease of addiction and the process of recovery – including those who have substance use disorders.

    Our residential treatment provides a slew of education and information to clients and their families so that they understand this disease as best as possible. Some of this education might be extremely clinical, focusing on how the brain of someone with the disease of addiction functions or how genetics and biological factors impact the risk factor for individuals to develop a substance use disorder. The education provided can also include how relapse occurs, how to prevent relapse, the side effects of continued substance abuse, and statistics surrounding substance abuse as it related to overdoses and suicide rates.

    The education provided through treatment is done in an effort to teach clients about what they have been dealing with on a personal level so that they make better choices in the future that will support their continued recovery.


    Prior to leaving residential treatment, clients will be provided with an aftercare plan that includes information on how to stay on course when the safety net of treatment is no longer part of their everyday lives. This might include a daily schedule to follow, ideas on what to do when feeling triggered or struggling with cravings, etc. Clients will also leave with referrals to outside therapists and doctors who can provide continued services. Additionally, usually, all clients leave with encouragement to participate in local support groups like AA or NA.
