Treatment Programs For Substance Abuse In Nashville Tennessee

If you are seeking treatment in Nashville, you are embarking on a brave journey of healing and self-discovery. Too often substance abuse, eating disorders, and other mental health issues, take us away from our lives, the things we enjoy and the people we love. This journey can seem overwhelming and even impossible for some. However, allowing us here at JourneyPure Nashville, to join you on your journey, we feel confident that we can ease your suffering, and provide you with the tools and support needed to be successful in your recovery. There is a tremendous amount of shame and stigma experienced when you realize that you or your loved one needs treatment, and we face many questions; How did I get to this point? Why can’t I stop on my own? I wasn't raised this way, how did this happen to me? How do I get out of this mess?

Dual Diagnosis Therapy

The overwhelming majority of individuals who obtain treatment for a substance use disorder are diagnosed with a mental health condition while they are in treatment. A substance use disorder that simultaneously co-occurs alongside a mental health condition is known as a dual diagnosis.

Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma is defined as “A deeply distressing or disturbing experience” or even more accurately in our field as “An emotional shock following a stressful event or a physical injury, which may be associated with physical shock and sometimes lead to long-term neurosis”. Overcoming trauma through trauma-informed care in Nashville Tennessee is a critical step in the recovery from substance abuse.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a category, rather than one specific type of therapy. It allows the individual to engage in an activity which provides a therapeutic experience rather than focusing on therapy itself. This can include yoga, recreational therapy, art, or music.

Family Therapy

It has been said that addiction is a family disease, and this statement could not be truer. Families suffer, and the individuals suffer, no one suffers more or less, and the common denominator is pain. Here at JourneyPure's family addiction therapy in Nashville Tennessee, we understand that it is rare that an individual struggling with addiction, has an ideal family construct.

Substance Abuse Treatment

In our culture, the use of mood-altering substances is a part of daily life for many. People begin their day with coffee or caffeinated tea to wake up and ready themselves. There could be an energy drink for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, a cigarette to calm nerves, or a glass of wine while dinner is being made. Some enjoy a beer at a sporting event, a cocktail or champagne at a celebration. There may be the occasional social use of marijuana.

Individual Therapy

Individual addiction therapy in Nashville Tennessee is critical in addressing the specific needs of each patient’s path to recovery. When a therapist or counselor has the undivided attention and focus of an individual, it allows for unparalleled communication, trust, and progress.

Group Therapy

A popular, and commonly used form of therapy, group therapy is a powerful mechanism for change and support. Nothing makes an individual feel more normal, more accepted and more hopeful than being surrounded by a group of like-minded, similar experience, and even flawed individuals.

Addiction Treatment in Nashville

At JourneyPure, we acknowledge, and understand the bewilderment one experiences when they arrive at the impasse, or “bottom” that causes them to seek treatment. It is our goal to ease the shame, and lessen the issues that would prevent someone from entering, and engaging in treatment. We recognize that many factors contribute to an individual’s struggles with substance abuse and mental health. It is our hope to educate the individuals and their families, to lessen the shame, and the blame. It is very difficult, if not impossible to “fix” your life, while struggling to live it, as it is in active addiction or illness. Our environment, the people around us, and our habits are all contributors, willing or unwilling, to the state that we find ourselves in in active addiction. Removing ourselves from these “people, places and things”, and entering into inpatient care here in Nashville, can be a giant step in the right direction, allowing us to establish and effect change and healing without the toxic outside influences. Long term sobriety requires “buy in” from the individual that is struggling. They need an opportunity to see that life is better, when you are free from your vices. This will be difficult for them to see, or believe in the beginning. Being without their existing (unhealthy) coping mechanisms, will leave them feeling raw and exposed. Our therapists will assist in this, gradual coming to terms of emotion. It will be overwhelming and painful, but worth every moment, and effort.

Our Goal

A patient who has willingly participated, and actively fought for their own wellbeing, stands a much better chance at success. What does this statement mean? Simply put, a person cannot be forced into recovery. They may get clean/sober for a time, but once they return to regular life, or are left unsupervised, they will immediately return to using. By resisting treatment, they have not learned, or applied the skills that were provided to help them fight the disease. That said, a person who resists treatment initially, and many do, can absolutely experience a change of heart, and begin to advocate for themselves. It is our goal at JourneyPure, that each patient engage, and participate in their own healing and treatment.

How Do I know If Treatment Is Right For Me or My Loved One?

Most individuals will know internally that they have a problem, however, they may not possess the ability or desire to acknowledge it outwardly. The following list gives some good guidelines:

Lack of self-control
Try to quit or control use but are unable
Spending time and money seeking out substances
Increased tolerance of substance
Deteriorated relationships
Engaging in dangerous behavior
Lack of personal responsibilities or accountability
Lying, stealing or other dishonest behavior
Withdrawing from hobbies, or activities which provided enjoyment
Inability to “do life”, like hold a job, maintain a household, foster relationships
Legal issues stemming from use; DUI, possession charges, shoplifting, assault etc.
Shame during or after use

Quitting on your own is not only emotionally challenging, it can be dangerous. An individual may think that all they have to do is stop using, and they will be rid of the substance, however, withdrawing from drugs or alcohol after prolonged use can be very uncomfortable, and even present medical challenges.

Why JourneyPure

JourneyPure recognizes that each individual is unique in their experiences, and their disease. Our team seeks to provide each patient with a customized treatment plan that addresses all of their personal needs. People will thrive and grow in different settings, so it is critical that this assessment and plan be ongoing, and ever evolving, so that the patients is consistently supported, and engaged in their own treatment. The patients needs may change, as they begin to heal and grow, or perhaps be adversely affected by the realizations of their reality. Patients may need different treatments, at different times and milestones of their recovery, and we feel prepared to provide that.
We offer a diverse array of treatment modalities, exposing each individual to what they are emotionally, and physically prepared, and well suited for.

JourneyPure Difference

It may take some time, but as the patient becomes more comfortable in their surroundings, and with the people in the center and their new routine, they will begin to see how they directly benefit from the treatment experience. Inpatient treatment offers a patient time to relearn “life” and establish their new normal. Simple tasks like, eating, sleeping, learning, sharing, exercising, meditating and routine, cannot be undervalued or discounted. They are a valuable exercise in feeling what it is like to be human again. It is through this repetition and practice that an individual who was once in such pain, discomfort, and distress, will find growth, trust and comfort. One small accomplishment will result in building self esteem which then in turn, allows for yet another accomplishment. These accomplishments are celebrated at JourneyPure, and the failures dealt with. The setbacks are shown to be a part of progress, and mastery. The concept of “progress, not perfection” is introduced.
The solid foundation one builds with time and practice in treatment, is their best defense against relapse when they return to the outside world. The safe, trustworthy, space that treatment provides, allows for learning, and growth. It provides the necessary strength and resilience needed for long term sobriety, and success. It saves lives.

Get the best treatment for yourself or a loved one.
