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. – Kim Morton Alumni Parent.

“I have remained sober and it is because of DP. DP is the best place there is, hands down. I keep everyone there in my prayers, and I encourage everyone there to take what they are practicing and do it in their lives, after.” – Roy Mantelli, Alumni

“Over the past year, I’ve been putting into actin what Discovery Place taught me, and I have experienced a complete perspective change of the world, and the people in it. I get to be a man of service and love today, and for that I am grateful to Discovery Place.” – Matt Kassay, Alumni

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.”
-Tommy Parker, Alumni

“Discovery Place and the men who work there made recovery attractive, and more importantly, fun. There is strength in the struggle. I am forever grateful for my time at Discovery Place.”
-Creed McClellan, Alumni

“When I got to Discovery Place my whole life was in shambles, but I didn’t know it. I spent 6 months in their programs, participating in all three phases, and was met with kindness and love all along the way. It is unbelievable to me, where I am now relative to where I was when I arrived at DP.”
-Lance Duke, Alumni

“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.”
-Tyler Buckingham, Alumni

Discovery Place reviews


The Fix is one of the leading addiction recovery websites. It is widely recognized for possessing the highest quality and most diverse information on substance abuse. The Fix also demonstrates integrity by not allowing treatment centers to influence, buy or alter their “Rehab Review.” And it is notoriously difficult to secure a good review from The Fix. Any well-reviewed addiction treatment center on this website should be considered a program of the highest quality.

Discovery Place is committed to having knowledgeable staff, with a ratio of one staff member for every three clients. And every employee, with the exception of the accountant, is a DP alumnus or has successfully been through the rehabilitation and recovery process. Typically, the guides (counselors) that serve the residents are alumni that have achieved a few years of sobriety, thus giving them insight and the necessary experience to help others through the process. Experiences with the staff are one of the most praised aspects of the program.


Several of our alums demonstrated the courage to speak openly about their struggle with substance abuse in the press. The Tennessean is Nashville’s premier newspaper, and two of our alums Rob B and Donnie N had their stories featured.
