Cornerstone of Recovery Young Adult Recovery Program Philosophy
Although there is no known “cure,” a person can establish a long-term, even life-long remission of the disease of chemical dependency. Treatment can establish this recovery by attending to the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs of the chemically dependent person. In other words, we believe that treatment of the whole person is critical to successfully addressing the needs of those addicted to alcohol and other drugs of abuse. In order to accomplish this goal, Cornerstone utilizes a multidisciplinary treatment team consisting of professionals and paraprofessionals from fields such as addiction medicine, psychology, family therapy, social work, psychiatry, acupuncture, spirituality, activity therapy, and fitness.
Areas of Specialization
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.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

ABOUT CORNERSTONE OF RECOVERY YOUNG ADULT RECOVERY PROGRAM
Cornerstone of Recovery has provided a haven for people facing addiction challenges at an affordable cost since 1989. Treating young men and women ages 18 to 26 for chemical dependency, the organization’s Young Adult Residential Recovery Program offers medically-supervised detoxification with 24-hour support and comprehensive rehab focused on the developmental issues, behavior styles, and energy levels unique to young people.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The treatment philosophy combines 12-step principles and meetings with education, medical and psychological addiction treatment, psychiatric evaluation and care, activity therapy, and fitness to meet the needs of the whole person.
Individual, group, and family therapy are offered alongside a life skills education program that helps young adults work towards financial independence, establish long-term goals, and develop a sense of respect for authority figures. Young adults also take part in healthy recreational outings, such as hiking and bowling.
Family members are encouraged to attend weekly individual counseling sessions with their loved one as well as twice-weekly peer group family meetings. An extended aftercare program, including outpatient therapy and supportive living, supports program graduates for up to 18 months following treatment.
The facility is staffed with trained medical and addiction treatment personnel - doctors, nurses, and counselors - many of whom are in recovery themselves.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Set in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, this residential facility offers comfortable community rooms, a recreation room, a refreshment area, and laundry facilities. All residential and clinical activities take place in the same building, however, meals are served in the main dining hall, which is in the Adult Treatment Center facility, a short walk away.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
While there are currently no alumni reviews for this facility, three loved ones shared criticisms with Rehabs.com. Janet, whose son attended the rehab facility, stated that she “would not trust this facility with my teenage child,” adding: “His withdrawal time was not sufficient and not monitored as I was told it would be. He was denied prescribed medications.”
In her disappointing report, reviewer Allison wrote: “They told my daughter she was toxic to the others, they ended up kicking her out and taking her to the mission which is in the worst part of Knoxville. She was 23.” And D.R., the third reviewer, told of “uneducated” staff members and family counseling they considered “laughable.”
Cornerstone of Recovery accepts self-pay and is in-network with many major health insurance plans. The organization does not participate with Medicaid or Medicare but encourages prospective clients speak with on-staff financial counselors to discuss alternative payment options.
