Rehab from alcohol addiction is a multi-step process and should be done with the assistance and supervision of clinical substance abuse experts at an accredited drug and alcohol rehab center. Offering premier alcohol detox and rehab treatment, your local Landmark Recovery of Knoxville center will help you each step of the way.
In Tennessee, more than 5% of the population reportedly use or abuse alcohol or drugs, with 4.8% of people over the age of 21 reporting heavy alcohol use. 1 In 2019, alcohol/ethanol was the #3 substance found in drug-related deaths in Knox and Anderson counties. 2 Despite these statistics, only one in 10 Tennessee residents who need substance abuse treatment – for alcohol, opioid, or other drug abuse – will receive it. 3
Nationally, alcohol is the third-leading preventable cause of death behind tobacco use and poor diet coupled with physical inactivity. 4 An unaddressed alcohol abuse disorder or addiction can lead to a variety of health issues and diseases, not to mention negatively affect an individual’s mental health and quality of life, yet individuals may avoid seeking treatment for any number of reasons, including not knowing what to expect from a treatment facility.
At Landmark Recovery, we are not just treating addiction. We are treating the challenges that lead to addiction, and we do so with more individualized treatment at a lower cost. This includes one-on-one therapy twice a week, programs tailored to your beliefs (with faith-based and secular options available), and fully scheduled days to focus on your recovery and nothing else. Our treatment is not an in-and-out concept; we want to help you learn how to navigate the world sober.
Following your alcohol detox, you will participate in counseling and evidence-based behavioral therapies (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, and contingency management interventions), which will play a critical role in identifying the false beliefs and harmful thoughts behind your addiction.
Behavioral therapy, specifically, is a cornerstone of our alcohol rehab treatment and available to both our residential inpatient and intensive outpatient programs. Behavioral therapy is used to develop the healthy behaviors and coping skills needed to prevent relapse and stay sober. 5
Medications often play an important role in alcohol addiction recovery, as well, and are incorporated into our drug and alcohol rehab programs. Currently, there are three medications approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help people stop or reduce their drinking and prevent relapse: acamprosate, naltrexone, and disulfiram. 6
