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.

Discovery Place Sober Blog

An article on recently went viral. Thousands of social shares later, and I’m sure at least some people with substance abuse disorders have died because of it. Perhaps that view is a little extreme. But if you’re in recovery, you know that alcoholism and addiction are life and death matters. Not just for the substance abuser either.
How can I put into words something that can only be experienced? It takes my breath away to think of where I was two years ago. I seem to start reflecting on where I’ve been and where I’ve come as sobriety birthdays approach.
The day has arrived. You’ve put in the work. You’ve stayed sober. Now it’s time for a little rest and relaxation. Maybe something on the beach in Florida? Perhaps something more tropical? Or maybe you want something “outdoorsy”, like a trip to Yellowstone. If recovery has been especially generous, Europe could be a possibility.
