The Effective Alternative to the Traditional Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Discovery Place is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping men find sustained sobriety from drug addiction and alcoholism. Conveniently located outside Nashville, Tennessee, in one of the most recognized areas nationwide for quality recovery, we offer 30-day residential recovery programs and long-term residential programs with the sole purpose of bringing about the miracle of sobriety in every guest who walks through our doors. Unlike many traditional drug rehab and alcohol rehab treatment centers, our recovery programs for drug addiction and alcoholism draw exclusively from the only medically proven method for sustained sobriety: the 12 steps.

We guide men through the 12 steps as outlined in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Men are thoroughly and compassionately introduced to 12 steps recovery by staff and volunteers, all of whom are in recovery. This program model of addiction rehab proves incredibly effective: over a three year period, 61% of all our guests and 74% of those who participate in our Continuing Care Program report they are sober after one year. And our studies, in partnership with Baptist Healing Trust, include all of our guests. We don't "cherrypick."

Discovery Place is not a traditional drug rehab or alcohol rehab center. We are, instead, a 12 step recovery retreat for men and families seeking lasting freedom from drug addiction and alcoholism. Because we are a nonprofit, and we are aided by so many volunteers, you will find that our residential recovery programs are quite effective and affordable relative to a standard drug rehab treatment center.

Regardless of you or your loved one's addiction, pick up the phone and call us today. Our admissions team is friendly, knowledgeable and non-commissioned. The call is free, and we will transport you or your loved one free of charge within a 500 mile radius of our facility once admission is secured.

Fast forward 20 years, and I’m using more needles than a three-armed nurse. Shots for breakfast, lunch and dinner – not tequila or vodka, just heroin. By far the worst item on my narcotic résumé. Fortunately, I sought help. Most don’t find quality addiction treatment. I was one of the lucky few.
Imagine this scenario. You’re at a bar with some friends. Final exams recently concluded the 2016 collegiate school year, and it’s time to blow off some steam. Drinks go down quickly. As the night comes to an end, you feel okay to drive.
It’s so easy to get bogged down when life gets tough. When the world starts throwing me curveballs, my instincts scream, “Run!” This quote reminds me to keep my feet moving, not kicking. By recognizing struggles are impermanent and resistance counterproductive, I begin to break the chains of challenge.
