Facility Highlights

  • Specialty Programs

Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

I worked very hard to find the appropriate place for my loved one. I am out of state and referenced top 10 residential rehabs in tn. They are on the list. The marketing is false. They do nothing they say on website. If you’re looking for help. There is none. Don’t go here. Just a big disappointment. I never received any help or feedback. No direction or communication when you need it most.

Commitment of staff and counselors to instilling the tools needed for continued sobriety. The beauty of the natural settings. The fellowship of the fellow clients. Not enough awareness of co-occuring emotional and mental conditions. Meals provided could be higher quality. More structured holistic options...tai chi and acupuncture were offered but kind of haphazardly presented. Male and female clientsv do not interact. The facility and staff are LGBT accepting and supportive. Everything the staff does is to help the client remain focused on their sobriety and healing.

I am extremely grateful for English Mountain Recovery! I had been to previous treatment facilities prior and found the most help from this rehab. It forever changed my life and I honestly can't speak higher about this faculty.

Individual support systems and follow up treatment. Although they are separated, the male and female facilities are too closely related. Many problems occurred by clients breaking the rules. I think they honestly care about the individual client and their future for sober living.

if I could give them 0 stars I would. I have never felt so unloved and disrespected in my entire life. They treat their patients like inmates. This place is fraud. They lie on their website. They tell you that there are gym times, tai chi, yoga, meditation, accupunture... NONE OF THIS HAPPENS. You wake up, go to class after class after class, and then after 12 hours of infuriatingly useless classes you back back to bed. The environment is negative, depressing, and unlivable.
