Mental Health Treatment in Tennessee

In Tennessee, as is true in so many other parts of the country, substance use, addiction, and overdose deaths have increased in recent years. In 2021, for example, there was a 15% increase in overdose deaths. Many of these deaths involved fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid. Other substances involved in most overdose deaths in the state were methamphetamine and cocaine.

For anyone struggling with drug or alcohol use in Tennessee, there are treatment options available. There are Tennessee drug and alcohol rehab center options available, as well as out-of-state facilities.

Centric Behavioral Health offers addiction treatment in Tennessee and other states around the country, including New Jersey and Florida.

Levels of Addiction Treatment

A continuum-of-care approach is what works best for most patients who are seeking addiction treatment. This means you don’t do one type of rehab program, and once it ends, you’re finished. Rather, you gradually work through treatment as you’re ready. You prepare for lower-intensity treatment at your own pace.

For most clients seeking addiction treatment, medical detox is the first step. You can participate in a medical detox onsite at a Tennessee drug and alcohol rehab center, which makes the transition to your next phase of treatment easier and more seamless.

During medical detox, the focus is on stabilizing withdrawal symptoms a client may be experiencing. Withdrawal symptoms range in severity and, on the worst end of the spectrum, can be life-threatening without appropriate medical management.

The staff of a medical detox provides monitoring and medications as needed. When medically appropriate, these might include medication-assisted treatments specifically for withdrawal.

A medical detox creates a safer, more comfortable experience and better prepares clients for what’s next.

Inpatient Rehab

Whether you receive inpatient treatment at a Tennessee drug and alcohol rehab center or decide to go to another state, this is the most intensive care level.

Inpatient rehab offers unique advantages to clients. The environment is one that’s structured and alleviates temptations and triggers. A sense of routine and predictability is beneficial in the earliest days of recovery.

There’s the support that comes from the staff during inpatient rehab, as well as other clients.

The treatment day is usually full, including group and individual therapy sessions. Holistic activities to support recovery might be parts of the day, such as yoga, meditation, or art therapy.

Inpatient rehab uniquely allows being fully immersed in the treatment process, often yielding the best outcomes.

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient treatment can vary quite a bit in terms of intensity.

For example, Centric Behavioral Health offers several types of outpatient rehab at our Tennessee drug and alcohol center and other locations.

Partial hospitalization programs tend to be the most intensive level of outpatient care, sharing similarities with residential treatment. These programs require a significant time commitment, but at the end of the treatment day, clients can return home or if needed, to a sober living house.

The next step down from partial hospitalization in terms of offerings at Centric Behavioral health is an intensive outpatient program.

Then, there’s traditional outpatient treatment, with the most flexibility and opportunities for clients to explore their recovery and newly developed coping skills with a sense of accountability.

Aftercare Planning

Addiction recovery is a lifelong endeavor, and with that in mind, all treatment plans should include aftercare planning. This might mean living in a supportive housing environment, also known as sober living.

Aftercare planning can include connections with local 12-step groups or other support groups. It can also include referrals for therapy, medical appointments, and other needed services in a person’s local community.

Centric Behavioral Health has all levels of care available at not only our Tennessee drug and alcohol rehab center but also nationwide locations.

Signs of Addiction

When someone develops an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it will often affect every part of their life, behavior, and physical and mental health. Signs that someone might benefit from drug rehab in Tennessee or elsewhere include:

Addiction is a diagnosable medical condition considered by experts to be a chronic disease. As is true with other chronic illnesses, treatment can help get the symptoms under control. When the symptoms of a chronic disease are well-controlled and inactive, it’s known as remission. With addiction, this is known as being in recovery.

Substance use disorders are diagnosed based on certain criteria, and they can be mild, moderate, or severe. The severity will depend on how long someone uses a substance and how many particular symptoms they’ve experienced.

Centric Behavioral Health can work with clients searching for alcohol or drug rehab in Tennessee, connecting them with the resources best suited to their needs. Treatment is available on an inpatient or outpatient basis.

Effective Treatment for Addiction

Whether someone is seeking substance abuse treatment in Tennessee specifically or any other location, some of the principles of effective addiction treatment include:

  • Addiction affects brain circuits, including the ones that play a role in motivation and reward. These effects are why addiction is characterized and must be treated as a brain disease.
  • When someone has a substance addiction, it’s much more than usage. There are significant health and social effects. For example, someone with an addiction is at a greater risk for many physical illnesses. All these effects of addiction must be included in a treatment plan.
  • An effective treatment plan needs to address all of a person’s needs. Even when someone struggles with an addiction, they are more than their drug or alcohol use.
  • There isn’t one single treatment that will work for every person. As a result, treatment needs to be specifically matched to the client’s unique needs.
  • For the best recovery outcomes, a client needs to stay in treatment for an adequate period of time. Longer durations tend to be more effective, but this doesn’t mean that all treatment has to occur on an inpatient basis.
  • Behavioral therapies such as individual, group, and family counseling are the most commonly used approaches to treating addiction. Behavioral therapy helps a patient become motivated to change, and they can learn skills and coping mechanisms to replace substance use with healthy habits.
  • Treatment plans should change as the needs of a client evolve.  
  • Medication-assisted treatment may be part of a rehab plan, but it’s not a “cure” in and of itself for addiction. Rather, medication-assisted treatment for alcohol and opioid use disorders can help someone as they’re dealing with cravings early on.

Centric Behavioral Health integrates all principles of effective treatment into substance abuse treatment in Tennessee and at our other facilities around the country. Each client begins their recovery journey with a personalized treatment plan to address their needs holistically.
