How Drug Addiction Impacts Tennessee

Sadly, addiction has led to an increase in crime and tragedy not only for Knoxville but for the state of Tennessee as a whole. From 2015 to 2020, Tennessee’s overdose deaths increased by almost 50%. In Knox County alone almost 350 people lost their lives to drugs in 2020. Also, it is important to note that 80% of crimes committed in Tennessee were and continue to be drug-related.

As with the rest of the nation, opioid use is prominent in Tennessee. For example, in 2020, over 80% of Tennessee’s overdose fatalities were a result of opioid use. Furthermore, over 200,000 Tennessee residents admit to misusing prescription medications such as opioid painkillers. Opioids are not the only drug being misused in the state. In fact, almost 1,000 meth labs exist in Tennessee.

According to a 2018 to 2019 report, alcohol is also a problem for residents. To add, more than 5% of those 18 and over are struggling with alcohol misuse. These harrowing statistics highlight the need for rehab in Knoxville, Tennessee. Fortunately, centers such as Discovery Place are available to get men the help they need before it is too late.

Services Offered at Discovery Place

To ensure each individual who walks through our doors receives the comprehensive healing they deserve, we offer a variety of programming. With the help of our caring staff, clients are able to devise a treatment plan that best suits their needs and circumstances. Below is a list of services and programs offered through Discovery Place, which include: 

12-Step Program

The 12-Step model serves as a step-by-step guide to a successful recovery. Additionally, Discovery Place uses 12-Step programming to help clients achieve and maintain sobriety. Specifically, this model encourages group sessions in which individuals openly share their experiences. Following treatment, individuals can continue attending 12-Step meetings in order to stay strong in their recovery.

30-Day Rehab Program

While in our 30-day rehab program, individuals can heal from their addictions away from outside influences and triggers. During this program, residents live on-site where they can enjoy our facilities while bonding with those around them. 

Step Down Residential Program

For those who need additional support following one of our rehab programs, Discovery Place offers a step-down residential program—thus allowing residents to strengthen their position in recovery while continuing to build essential life skills. To accomplish this, the men in this program live in our recovery community and spend one to nine months in guided care.

Family Programming

It is no secret that addiction is a family disease. As such, it is important to incorporate the family into an individual’s treatment plan. Not only does this type of programming provide family members with the help they need, but it allows them to mend the relationship between them and their loved one struggling with addiction. 

Long-Term Recovery Program

30 days is not always enough time for individuals to feel secure in their recovery. Therefore, 60-day and 90-day rehab is often needed. For this reason, Discovery Place offers a long-term program giving individuals the time they need to live confidently in their sobriety. 

Continuing Care + Aftercare

To set our clients up for a lasting recovery, we offer aftercare as well as continuing care. This program involves checking in with alumni in order to prevent relapse. To add, it encourages them to maintain accountability and helps them adapt to life changes.

  • Discovery Place was the answer for my son. He did the 90 day and then the step down program and sober living. We give this organization 10 stars. They met my son where he was …emotionally, mentally, physically. They helped him put his life back on track. Discovery Place employees care about their guests. If your son, brother, nephew, grandson or husband needs excellent supportive care THIS is indeed the facility.

  • Discovery Place means the world to me. They showed me the tools that I’ve tried to use everyday in my life to think less often of myself, and more frequently of others. I am learning to lend a hand when I am able and to have a honest and humble relationship with God and the people around me. Not only am I clean and sober, but also I am happy and fulfilled.

  • I can never say enough good things about Discovery Place and the people who work there. Before checking in to DP, I was out of options and out of answers. Fortunately, Discovery Place has a solution. Taking suggestions from the staff at DP saved my life, and as a result, I’m now more content and hopeful about life. I’m grateful for Discovery Place showing me how to live a healthy life so that I can become a better man and help the next guy.”
