Every day countless people struggle to rise above their addiction to alcohol. Also known as alcohol use disorder (AUD), this condition is marked by an unhealthy and compulsive consumption of alcohol. Alcohol addiction disrupts every facet of peoples’ lives, leading to both physical and emotional stress.

Because of this, it is crucial that individuals seek help as soon as possible. No matter what stage of alcohol addiction a person is in, our men’s alcohol rehab in Nashville, Tennessee can help.

What is Alcoholism?

The term alcoholism refers to a medical disorder that is defined by an uncontrollable consumption of alcohol. Oftentimes, those battling alcohol addiction are aware of the negative toll alcohol is taking on their life. However, they are unable to stop their drinking as the hold alcohol has on them has become too strong.  

Unfortunately, cognitive changes and damage are likely to ensue from alcohol addiction. As a result, alcoholism often leads to a host of mental repercussions. Thankfully, Discovery Place’s alcohol rehab in Nashville, Tennessee is available and our caring staff is determined to instill lasting sobriety in each of our valued guests.

Signs and Symptoms of Alcoholism

For the most successful outcomes, alcohol addiction should be treated as soon as it is identified. To make this process easier and more accurate, it is essential to know the indicators and symptoms associated with alcoholism. These include:

  • Spending the majority of your time seeking and drinking alcohol as well as recovering from its side effects
  • Alcohol cravings
  • Failing to fulfill personal and professional responsibilities due to alcohol consumption
  • Increasing the amount and frequency of alcohol consumption
  • Being unable to quit drinking despite multiple attempts
  • Driving while drunk
  • Continuing to drink despite seeing the negative consequences it has on your relationships and overall quality of life
  • Developing an increased tolerance to alcohol
  • Encountering withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop drinking
  • Consuming alcohol over engaging in once enjoyed activities

Alcohol Use vs Misuse

Alcohol use and alcohol misuse are often used interchangeably. However, the 2 terms are different, though they can be difficult to differentiate between. In the end, the distinction between these degrees of alcohol consumption comes down to the frequency and amount a person drinks on a daily basis. For men, alcohol misuse means consistently having 2 or more drinks every day. On the other hand, alcohol abuse in men means having 5 or more alcoholic drinks on a daily basis.

Additionally, a person struggling with alcohol abuse would reveal 2 or more symptoms of alcoholism within a 1-year period. If you are uncertain about whether or not you have a drinking problem, please contact Discovery Place in Nashville, Tennessee for an assessment.

Alcohol Abuse Statistics in Tennessee

Despite Tennessee’s charming countryside and widely celebrated music, the state is still subject to the harsh impacts of alcohol addiction. As a matter of fact, the most commonly misused substance in Tennessee is alcohol. That being the case, approximately 5% of the state’s residents drink an unhealthy amount. 

Sadly, statistics reveal this alcohol misuse to be starting from an early age. For example, in 2018 the average age that those in Tennessee started consuming alcohol was only 14. Furthermore, over 20% of the state’s high schoolers have admitted to binge drinking. Given this prevalence of drinking, it is upsetting, yet not surprising, that Tennessee saw over 7,000 crashes involving drivers under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol in 2020. Tragically, these reckless and preventable collisions caused over 4,600 injuries and 435 deaths.

What Happens in Alcohol Rehab in Nashville, TN?

Men attending our alcohol rehab in Nashville, Tennessee will live on-site in either our main campus or our long-term recovery center. There, they have the chance to bond with their peers, become immersed in nature, and, ultimately, reconnect with themselves. By staying on-campus, all of the world’s distractions and temptations are at bay allowing guests to focus on what really matters—recovery.

While in rehab, men will be able to identify the source of their alcohol addiction, share their experiences, offer support to one another, practice the 12-Step principles, and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Following a 30, 60, or 90-day stay in alcohol rehab, these men receive extensive aftercare support and opportunities to volunteer with Discovery Place.

How Discovery Place Treats Alcohol Addiction

Discovery Place approaches recovery as more than a treatment outcome. Instead, we believe it is the key to a healthy and fulfilling life. To achieve this goal, we work closely with each and every guest who joins our recovery community. However, we also emphasize the role of peer support in our programs.

Furthermore, we use the 12-Steps as a guideline for our alcohol rehab This encourages our residents to incorporate these tried and true principles into their recovery journey. These steps instill a sense of self-growth, accountability, and reformation. Lastly, they can be applied to daily life in order to promote sustainable sobriety.

Programs Offered at Our Nashville Rehab

All of our programs include family participation, support group sessions, and 12-Step immersion. Additionally, we work with renowned mental health professionals to ensure our guests get the specialized treatment they need. All of our programs take place in a structured and supportive environment and are led by experienced and empathetic professionals. 

30-Day Residential Rehab Program

Our 30-day rehab program gets men back on the right track. We offer small groups, having no more than 24 guests at a time. In addition to embracing the 12-step principles, we also encourage guests to upkeep a healthy diet, regular exercise routine, and consistent sleeping schedule during their time with us. 

Long Term Addiction Treatment Program

In many cases, 30 days is not enough and men need additional support. Therefore, long-term programming can be instrumental in a successful recovery. Discovery Place offers 60 and 90-day programs in the Nashville area. Our long-term program model simulates the schedule and demands of the real world. It also provides guests with volunteer opportunities and job placement assistance. 

Step Down Residential Program

Following one of our initial rehab programs, guests are eligible for another 1 to 9 months through our step-down program. This program is designed to solidify an individual’s foothold in sobriety through life skills development and ongoing accountability. 

Continuing Care and Aftercare Programs

Discovery Place feels it is important to form lasting relationships with our alumni. This is why we offer continuous support, encouragement, and direction following graduation. The goal of aftercare is to reduce the risk of relapse and assist our alumni in conquering life’s challenges. 

Family Matters

Addiction is a family disease. Therefore, it is important that family members remain a part of their loved one’s rehab program. Additionally, it is important that family members get the help they need as well. Discovery Place offers support for families so that everyone in the unit can find healing from the impacts of addiction. 

12-Step Rehab

12-Step meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) are a widely popular recovery model. Even after treatment, those living in sobriety continue attending these meetings in order to maintain their recovery. Discovery Place integrates the 12 Steps into our rehab programs by encouraging guests to listen and share with others, engage in open and honest reflection, and maintain accountability.

  • 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.

    Lance Duke
  • 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.”
