Most people believe they have a solid grasp of what residential drug treatment looks like and how they work. Movies, television shows, and social media portray drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in a light that isn’t always accurate. 

The Centers for Disease Control estimate that around 115 die every day from drugs, and a shocking 6,748 will be hospitalized for treatment. Addiction and substance abuse have become a national crisis. Unfortunately, up to 90 percent of people who need rehabilitation treatment don’t get it. 

At Discovery Place we understand the financial burden that rehab can create, which is why we offer affordable recovery programs and residential financing programs to make sure everyone has the opportunity to recover. 

Why Don’t Traditional Drug Rehab Centers Works?

Unbeknownst to the majority of people, not all resident programs are the same. Many addiction treatment facilities and programs rely entirely on counseling and therapeutic approaches. Others claim to use “cutting edge technology” or “evidence-based messages” but theses phrases are put in place to create the illusion that they know a secret to sobriety. 

Traditional drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers only utilize psychiatric and therapeutic approaches. New research on the subject has suggested that people suffering from substance abuse and addiction additionally require positive expectations and attitudes, as well as a well-organized support system of family, friends, or professionals. 

Why Our Alternative Substance Abuse and Addiction Programs Actually Work

At Discovery Place we understand the positive impact that a well-established support system can have on a person recovering from addiction or substance abuse. At our Tennessee alternative recovery treatment facility, we facilitate one-on-one and small group discussions that guide our residents through a 12-step guide to sobriety. We offer several programs, including:

  • 30-Day residential programs
  • Long-term recovery programs
  • Continuing care programs
  • Family matters workshops

Studies have discovered that recovery treatment programs that include the 12-step guide show an increased rate of abstinence. Further findings illustrated that 12-step affiliated programs graduated more clients that continued to be substance abuse-free and secured employment at the one-year mark.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.”
