Bradford’s Knoxville, TN Inpatient Addiction Treatment Center

At Cornerstone of Recovery, A Bradford Recovery Community, we’re commited to saving lives, families, and jobs by providing hope, healing, and recovery to those affected by alcohol and drug addiction. Located near Knoxville, TN, our 24-acre campus features natural elements and modern amenities. Here, we take a comprehensive approach to recovery, with proven treatment programs that focus on the whole patient: spirit, soul, and body.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Programs Tailored to You

At Bradford, we know that addiction affects every person differently, which is why our evidence-based, proven rehab programs include customized treatment plans for each patient. At our Cornerstone of Recovery campus, we have several options to ensure that you receive treatment that best fits your needs. Unique to Cornerstone are our Newcomers and Recovery Renewal programs, featuring therapy methods and peer group work that aligns with your recovery stage.

Newcomers Program

Our Newcomers program is made for those entering residential addiction treatment for the first time. In this program, you will learn about the disease of addiction, be introduced to the 12 Steps, and learn how to begin healing using evidence-based, therapeutic methods led by our master’s level clinicians and therapists.

Recovery Renewal

The road to recovery can be challenging, and many do not see long-term success on their first attempt. We understand that your needs differ from those seeking treatment for the first time. Our Recovery Renewal program addresses the deeper issues, such as trauma and resentment, that often prevent someone from maintaining sobriety.

Hope. Heal. Recover.

A Refuge for Recovery in East Tennessee

Cornerstone of Recovery provides a place where mental health and substance abuse issues are addressed head-on so that healing may begin. Our inpatient rehab facility’s amenities and features were designed for calm and convenience. Modern architecture within a beautiful sprawling landscape, with views of the Little River and Great Smoky Mountains, gives our patients a safe, serene setting to focus on sobriety.

Clinically-Proven Rehab Programs

Here, our inpatient and intensive outpatient drug rehab and addiction treatment programs are based on the 12 Step approach to recovery and the Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual treatment model. We provide medical detox services that allow our patients to withdraw from drugs and alcohol safely. The therapeutic elements of our program include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Family Therapy, Individual and Group Therapy, Activity Therapy, and more. Each patient will be involved in individual and group therapy with a master’s level therapist and other processing groups that offer counselor and peer support.

Recover from Addiction in Comfort & Community

At our Cornerstone of Recovery campus, we designed our facilities to foster a supportive community, with the comfort of our residents also in mind. We understand that addiction is a disease that thrives off isolation, which is why building community is a core component of our treatment model. The convenient, modern amenities and neighborhood-like atmosphere of our campus encourage connection with like-minded peers experiencing similar challenges.

Exercise & Wellness in Recovery

When patients arrive at Cornerstone of Recovery, they often are broken: mind, spirit, and body. Cornerstone’s Fitness and Wellness activities are integral to the therapeutic process and our whole-person recovery approach. Exercise promotes the release of endorphins, which are highly beneficial to a system starved for feel-good chemicals that the body naturally produces. With our 15,000-square-foot gym, ropes course, and yoga areas, patients can participate in physical recreation daily.

Finding Fun in Sobriety

Successfully overcoming addiction requires effort and commitment. While our rehab programs may be intensive, we also know that to experience recovery fully, you also need healthy outlets and fun without drugs or alcohol. Our recreation areas allow you to indulge in leisure activities such as playing pool, shuffleboard, board games, and foosball, as well as enjoy movie nights and access to various musical instruments.
