Knoxville Drug & Alcohol Rehabs

The #1 Place for Addiction Treatment in Knoxville

You're looking for drug and alcohol treatment that offers you something that actually works. That's exactly what we do. Your team here has lived with addiction before too but came out on the other side. (It's better over here). Get away from your triggers and resolve all the things blocking you from staying sober. You can do this!

Why People Come to Our Knoxville Rehab

It's In-Network

Our Knoxville location is one of the most affordable rehabs in the whole country. All JourneyPure locations are in-network with private insurance companies. But, unlike our other Tennessee location, Knoxville also accepts Medicaid plans (including Tenncare). It’s the best Medicaid facility in the state. Several weeks of 24/7 medical and clinical care from well-known doctors and therapists in the industry is not out of reach.

The Team is Amazing

The overwhelming theme in our reviews and survey feedback is that the team here actually cares. Most staff here have lived in addiction themsleves – some even alumni of this Knoxville program. You get individual attention from professionals personally invested in your success.

The Success Rates are Impressive

The success rates at JourneyPure are double the most recent numbers from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. That means you’re TWICE as likely to still be sober 6-months after leaving here, compared to going elsewhere. That’s a pretty convincing fact.

What is rehab like?

Rehab is simply a time to focus on yourself. It’s a way to take a healthy look at the past, dealing with blocks like shame or trauma. Then, plan for a happy, relapse-free future.

Medical Detox

The first step is getting the drugs and alcohol out of your system. This usually takes a few days. Know that with medical detox, withdrawal symptoms are kept manageable. It’s nothing like stopping cold turkey.

Inpatient Treatment

After detox, your focus shifts from the physical addiction to stopping the destructive mental cycles. The majority of your time is spent in therapy and educational groups. It’s not as boring as it sounds. In fact, it’s a relief to talk to people that understand and it feels good to make progress every day. To break up these intense sessions, therapeutic elements like music therapy, social bonding exercises, meditation and pet therapy are incorporated too.

Dual Diagnosis

Core to treatment here is figuring out the root issues that fuel your behaviors. This most typically includes depression, anxiety and trauma. Then, those separate mental health issues are treated with therapy and sometimes medications like antidepressants that rebalance the brain.

The Process is Simple
Call JourneyPure
1. Make The Call

Even if you're not ready to commit to JourneyPure or not sure if you want treatment at all, talk about what's going on with someone that's been there before. You'll feel better and more informed after you call, I promise.

(844) 505-4799
2. Discuss Any Costs

Insurance covers the majority of your cost here! How much you owe depends on deductable and co-insurance rates set by each policy. Don't worry, we'll call your insruance company, then explain the details of your specific insurance policy. You can privately submit insurance information online.

(If you don't have insurance, you still have options. We can talk about that too.)

3. Start Treatment

Our locations often operate on waiting lists, but we're as accommodating as possible with the schedule. It helps to call early in your decision process and come in while you're still motivated.

The first thing you notice when you walk in is an overwhelming sense of hope and compassion. You're surrounded by people that actually understand what you're going through.

4. The Treatment Process

Intensive cognitive-behavioral therapies aren't as boring as they sound. You tackle issues hiding behind drugs and alcohol like trauma, depression or anxiety. And, you graduate feeling better than ever with a plan and a coach to help you stay on track long after treatment ends.

How to Overcome Your Own Excuses

An Interview with Our Knoxville Clinical Director

What would you say to someone using their job or kids as an excuse to coming here?

I would have them think about how much more productive of an employee or actively involved parent they can be when they are sober and have developed the tools needed to maintain sobriety.

We will work with you. There’s no price on getting your life back.

Also, you can find out if you’re eligible for Medicaid or apply for Medicaid now.

The team here comes from a very diverse background and lived, like you, in addiction. We know exactly what you’re going through. Thoughts like “I can do this on my own” or “I’m too far gone” are just plain lies. You can do this. And, we can help.

JourneyPure - Knoxville Alcohol & Drug Rehab

2636 Maryville Pike Knoxville, TN 37920

This page reflects both JourneyPure inpatient programs in Knoxville (off Maryville Pike and in Norris).

Some people from Knoxville choose instead to escape to our flagship drug and alcohol rehab in Mufreesboro or even to our beachfront location in Panama City, Florida.

If you're not sure which location to choose, don't worry. Call or chat with someone who understands and can make a recommendation. There's not one "best" JourneyPure location, but there is a best option for you – based on your location, insurance, trauma and schedule/waitlists.
