East Tennessee Residential Addiction Treatment

East Tennessee Residential Addiction Treatment

Located in the heart of the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee, our 36-bed Residential Addiction Treatment facility tailors treatment plans to your insurance, health history, and addiction severity. While English Mountain’s Residential Addiction Treatment Programs are available in 30 to 60-day periods, many residents end up prolonging their stay up to 90 days or more to deepen their recovery focus and strengthen their sobriety foundation. To further support healing for the entire family, we also provide family education and counseling.

Residential Addiction Treatment Program Options

30-60 Days: When a long-term care program is not feasible due to financial, professional, or family obligations, English Mountain Recovery accepts clients searching for 30, 45, and 60-day rehabs. No matter how long they stay, 100% of EMR participants receive transitional care that includes referrals for ongoing therapy, options for extended care, and sober living options. This transitional care protocol makes clients accountable for their choices while providing the support they need to succeed.

90+ Days: At English Mountain Recovery, our mantra is that time is a recovering client’s best friend—so we encourage clients to spend more rather than less time in recovery. New data supports that longer programs decrease the likelihood of relapse and improve sobriety outcomes. In fact, the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) calls 90-day programs the “gold standard” in treating alcohol and substance misuse.

Recovery management lasting 90+ days is particularly wise for men and women facing these situations:

What to Expect at Residential Addiction Treatment in East Tennessee?  

The Ranch At Dove Tree is a welcoming location. Our rehab facility in Lubbock, TX, is designed to help you feel right at home. That’s why we make the admissions process as streamlined as possible for you. Here are some things you can expect.

Residential addiction treatment facilities in Tennessee, like similar facilities in other states, provide structured, supportive, and therapeutic environments for individuals who require more intensive treatment and care than can be provided in outpatient settings but do not need inpatient hospitalization.

When you talk to the admissions team, and then later the clinical team, they’ll ask you questions like the following:

  • What types of substances are you using?
  • How long have you used them?
  • Are you actively using substances now?
  • Have you stopped using at any previous time? If so, what happened?
  • Have you been diagnosed with mental health disorders in the past?
  • How is your substance use impacting your life?
  • What type of support team do you have at home, if any?

The more we know about you and your health, the better we can help you. Once we gather this information and any other clinical data, the team then creates an individualized treatment plan for you.

Addiction Residential Treatment Program Features

Building their personal recovery process on the 12-step philosophy originated by Alcoholics Anonymous, EMR clients develop a sense of hope and purpose. Our 12-step recovery program facilitates long-term sobriety through practical wisdom and spiritual growth. EMR’s 12-step curriculum teaches participants to find support in a community while embracing accountability, practicing humility, acknowledging mistakes, and seeking forgiveness.

Holistic Addiction Treatment Used to Support Recovery

We also believe that recovery from substance use should involve mind, body, and spirit healing—so we round out the treatment experience with holistic options.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creative arts therapy uses music, art, or drama to encourage participants to process painful emotions, increase self-awareness, and develop a clearer vision of what they want their sober life to look like. Participants do not need to have any formal arts training to benefit from this type of holistic treatment, as long as they are willing to learn and committed to working towards their recovery goals.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy encourages people with substance use disorders to engage in physically demanding activities such as hiking, rock climbing, or completing low ropes courses to learn about problem solving, perseverance, and goal setting. In a group setting, experiential therapy can provide lessons about leadership, teamwork, and communication.

Research suggests that experiential therapy, and specifically adventure therapy like low ropes, offers clients in recovery from addiction benefits in the following areas:

  • Personal growth
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Teamwork and cooperation
  • Leadership
  • Appreciation of nature
  • Communication
  • Trust
  • Relationship building
  • Problem-solving
  • Stress management
  • Mindfulness (being in the present moment)
  • Creativity

Equine Therapy

Building meaningful connections with others is an important part of the healing process, but people suffering from addiction often struggle to trust those around them. Horses are highly sensitive creatures attuned to both verbal and nonverbal expressions of emotion. An equine interaction experience lets people with substance use disorders learn about developing rapport, communicating trust, and setting healthy boundaries in a safe and supportive environment.

With the help of our equine friends, clients recovering from substance use disorder build relationships, develop rapport, communicate trust, and learn healthy boundaries. You’ll also gain insights into feelings, behaviors, patterns, boundaries, and stumbling blocks to recovery.

Better mood. Working with animals, including horses, has been found to provide stress relief and increased happiness for people in recovery.

More mindfulness. Being “present” is a skill that is often neglected when using drugs or alcohol to become numb or escape the present moment. Equine Interaction Experience teaches clients to remain present in the moment and to be aware of changes in the animal’s body language, the environment, and yourself.

Greater work ethic and responsibility. Taking care of a horse teaches clients the value of hard work and how to take responsibility for your actions.

SMART Recovery

SMART Recovery stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training. It is a global, non-profit organization that offers support and resources for individuals seeking to overcome addiction and addictive behaviors. SMART Recovery is an alternative to traditional 12-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and it is based on a different set of principles and methods.

Trauma-informed care seeks to understand a patient’s unresolved trauma and how it is related to issues such as addiction, depression, and anxiety. Trauma can refer to issues that were one-time occurrences, such as being the victim of a natural disaster or a crime, as well as suffering prolonged trauma due to domestic violence, child abuse, or military combat exposure.


After recognizing the difficulty that most treatment facilities have with creating an effective post-treatment follow-up program, Trac9 was deployed by our program to offer an automated assessment plan. Through a secure web app, Trac9 uses a series of standardized assessments to identify changes in depression, anxiety, stress, visual response to cravings, verbal response to cravings, spirituality, commitment to sobriety, optimism, and quality of life. The assessments are collected on an as-needed basis, typically weekly, and track the user’s responses to predict the likelihood of a relapse. The results are charted in an easy-to-read graph that shows the client’s progress or the need for additional recovery work.

Relapse Prevention

At English Mountain Recovery, it’s our goal to guide you on your journey toward lifelong recovery – and this means preparing you for a possible relapse down the road. The chronic nature of addiction, unfortunately, means that relapsing to drug or alcohol abuse is a natural part of the process. Just like people with chronic conditions like hypertension, asthma, and diabetes can slip up on disease management so can people struggling with the chronic disease of addiction. Learn more
