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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
It was my first rehab. I was scared. But, this place – from intake to nurses to counselors – made it easy. They were very helpful, understanding, patient. They made it possible for me to be here 428 days later. Clean and happy. I am very grateful I choose this place. Thank u, Journey Pure.
They gave me my life back from being addicted to opiate. They teach you the way you need to change and the tools to use to stay clean. I loved this place, and I can say the staff treats you right, and they are nice. Journey Pure changed my life after 7 years of drug addiction, and I am still clean after leaving there 4 months ago. Love you, Journey Pure.
Thank you Journey Pure for helping me get my life back, not only do I have my life back but I have also regained the respect of friends and family that I had once lost. Missing my child’s birthday was a very difficult day for me but the staff helped me realize it was missing one birthday to be present for all the rest. Knowing the staff had been through what we were going through also helped. Great medical staff as well! Thanks JP
The Knoxville center was a life-changing experience for me. I finally started getting to the root of my issues. The counselors, techs & other staff were amazing.

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.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
