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 our entire admissions staff is composed of men living authentic recovery.

Sunrise brings doom for every cocaine addict. My heart, still pulsing from lines of Columbia’s most notorious export, sounded like a Scarface drum solo. I tore the plastic baggy apart, but I knew there was nothing left. I felt like I was in free falling elevator. Frantically, I called and texted anyone who could help me score. It was 5:30am, and I didn’t care. I needed my fix.
