Components of Inpatient Treatment at Knoxville Recovery Center

At Knoxville Recovery Center, clients begin their journey with an initial assessment. Based on the assessment results, they are either directly admitted into the comprehensive inpatient rehab program or start with a medically supervised detox process. The structured inpatient program operates seven days a week, with clinical hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sundays. Outside of these scheduled hours, clients have the opportunity for leisure time.

  • Evidence-Based Therapeutic Approaches: The experienced treatment team at Knoxville Recovery Center employs a range of evidence-based therapies, including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy. These approaches assist clients in processing thoughts and emotions, exploring values-aligned behaviors and beliefs, and addressing ambivalence towards addiction and treatment. Therapists prioritize a person-centered approach to ensure that each client feels genuinely supported and understood throughout their journey.
  • Group Therapy Sessions: Group therapy sessions at Knoxville Recovery Center provide a safe space for clients to share their experiences and gain insight from empathetic peers. During weekdays, clients participate in intimate primary group sessions led by their assigned clinician, who utilizes various therapeutic techniques, such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). These smaller groups foster reflection and mutual support. On weekends, clients engage in process-oriented group sessions that delve into the psychological and emotional aspects of addiction and recovery
  • Holistic Practices: Knoxville Recovery Center recognizes that healing and recovery extend beyond traditional therapy methods. The facility features a dedicated yoga studio that serves as a serene space for Qigong sessions, expressive arts workshops, mindfulness classes, and individual and guided meditation. Twice a week, clients participate in "Just For Today" sessions, held immediately after breakfast, where they set intentions and affirm their goals for the day ahead.
  • Family Involvement: Family involvement is an integral part of the addiction treatment process at Knoxville Recovery Center. Each client is assigned a primary clinician who maintains regular communication with their family members. As trust and rapport develop, family members, significant others, and other support systems are encouraged to participate in therapy sessions alongside their loved ones. This collaborative approach fosters open communication, establishes healthy boundaries, and ensures that clients have a strong support network throughout their recovery journey.
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment: Knoxville Recovery Center is a licensed facility that offers FDA-approved medications to alleviate physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, such as buprenorphine/naloxone, naltrexone, and acamprosate. The center also provides medication management for co-occurring disorders, including depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia.
  • Addiction Education: Addiction education sessions at Knoxville Recovery Center cover a wide range of topics. Clients participate in a relapse prevention course, where they learn effective strategies for managing cravings and stress. Neuroscience-informed psychoeducation sessions explore the inner workings of the brain and the development of substance dependencies. Through the SMART goals program, clients acquire the skills to set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound objectives. The center also places emphasis on nutrition education, which highlights the importance of meal planning and cooking in maintaining a healthy recovery lifestyle.
