Addiction Campuses of Tennessee - Spring 2 Life Philosophy

With one of the highest recovery success rates in the country, the Spring 2 Life campus at ACTN helps clients break free from the chains of addiction — for life. The Christian-based drug and alcohol rehab is committed to treating substance abuse issues and giving individuals the tools they need to avoid relapse. Utilizing a comprehensive approach that cares for each individual medically, mentally, and spiritually, Spring 2 Life offers more than a standard 30-day inpatient program. The program allows clients to progress through treatment as they’re ready, giving each individual the opportunity to heal in his or her own time.

Areas of Specialization

  • Outpatient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • 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.

Review by Contributors


A tranquil, faith-based, multi-step recovery experience is offered at Addiction Campuses of Tennessee. Located in Murfreesboro, Tenn., the treatment center offers residential treatment and a transitional living program, which is called Spring 2 Life. The program specializes in substance abuse, behavioral disorders, prescription drug addiction, and dual diagnosis treatment. Additional services include intervention and medically-supervised detoxification.


According to the facility's website, length of stay varies from one client to the next, but requires a minimum commitment of four months of residential treatment. Clients undergo an evaluation of their emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual progress each month. At the end of every 30-day period, those who receive grades of A or B can move onto the next level.

The program combines biblical principles with a comprehensive, Christian-based treatment plan that is customized to each client’s needs. Programming includes individual, group, and family counseling, along with life skills education. Residents also participate in an eight-session interactive program called GEARS that addresses addiction as the by-product of unmet human needs. Pitching in with maintenance, chores and meal preparation is expected.

After successful completion of the residential phase of treatment, clients move onto transitional living, which typically lasts 90 days. Individuals are required to find employment at this stage, and are allowed to use weekend passes to visit friends and family (taking drug tests upon return). There are mandatory classes every evening as well, which may include an educational program, group sessions, worship, or alumni meetings.

Other activities include one-on-one support from a mentor/life coach, weekly classes with the goal of reinforcing the practice of healthy new habits, behaviors and skills, and supportive alumni gatherings.

For aftercare, graduates are encouraged to participate in Catapult, a Christian alumni program that reinforces the concept that addiction no longer controls clients’ lives.


The center's website notes the treatment team includes clinical directors, therapists, life skills coaches, and pastors.


Called The Lodge, the cozy 15-bed residential facility is surrounded by 10 acres of wooded land, complete with serene walking trails and creeks. Residents live in shared, dorm-style rooms, and are allowed to bring along MP3 players and other music, but their playlists will be monitored by staff, according to the center's website.

The transitional living facility, Hope House, is set in a straightforward two-story residential home.

An overall great facility.

Counselors are pastors or recent graduates of the program. No real medical or professional staff on-site or in network. No master's prepared therapists. Kept my money after removing son from program after 5 weeks. Felt like the treatment specialist lied to me over and over again saying this campus could deal with severe depression, severe ADHD and suicide ideation. Only coping skill they teach is prayer. Everyone was very sincere, but it did not work out for us...and they dragged their feet on the discharge. ... All I needed was an email from them stating they were going to pro-rate my son's stay and the approximate date and 3 other facilities would have accepted my son. Instead Addiction Campuses dragged and dragged their feet...
