ABOUT ENGLISH MOUNTAIN RECOVERY
Spanning 27 acres in Tennessee's beautiful Smoky Mountains, English Mountain Recovery is a 36-bed residential substance abuse treatment center for men and women over the age of 18. A detox unit is on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The rehab's recommended treatment program is 90 days in length. While shorter stays of 30, 45, and 60 days can be accommodated, the facility encourages longer-term care to achieve the best results. Treatment plans are gender-specific and include individual and group therapy, creative arts therapy, equine-assisted therapy, experiential therapy, and music therapy with spiritual guidance.
The program is based on the 12-Steps, and clients work both on campus and off at Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings. A family program is offered to help loved ones improve communication, avoid unhealthy patterns, and heal emotional scars.
The treatment team consists of a medical director, clinical director, family program coordinator, trauma therapist/equine specialist, licensed counselors, registered and licensed nurses, and music/spirituality counselor.
The facility's board president won the National Association of Addiction Treatment Provider’s Nelson J. Bradley Lifetime Achievement Award for work at the center in blending "social, spiritual, and research based" principles into recovery."
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Surrounded by lakes, the facility offers ample opportunities for recreational activities, such as whitewater rafting and hiking. There also is a swimming pool, mini golf course, and meditation labyrinth on campus. Clients live in condominium units with sitting areas and porches.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Most of the alumni of English Mountain Recovery raved about the rehab, giving it the top five stars for treatment effectiveness when surveyed by Rehabs.com. The center’s accommodations, meals, and holistic offerings also received high ratings. Dan told Rehabs.com: “I honestly believe English Mountain stives to be what it is a safe place to heal and learn how to live a drug free life.” Kerri, who gave five stars to the major survey categories, shared with Rehabs.com: "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 the facility."
Alumni also commented on the beauty of the facility and the attentiveness of its staff. L.K. told Rehabs.com: “The employees really care for you and the food is awesome!.” Susan added: “They do an excellent job at teaching you the tools you need to live a sober life. There are excellent counselors there... Extremely affordable.”
Yet some alumni felt the facility had room to improve on cost, structured holistic offerings, and treatment of co-occurring conditions. “Not enough awareness of co-occurring emotional and mental conditions,” W.R. told Rehabs.com. “Tai chi and acupuncture were offered but kind of haphazardly presented.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Family members also seemed pleased with the treatment their loved ones received. Peter told Rehabs.com: “I feel that the program at EM was the one that helped our daughter in her recovery. She relapsed, almost died, but clung to the spiritual teachings of EM. She is now 16 months clean!” An anonymous family member added: “Our son liked the staff and program very much and they obviously helped him find recovery. He is still doing very well."
Michele praised the center for working with her daughter and loved ones. She told Rehabs.com: "Not only did they help (her) they helped the entire family in many ways."
According to the facility’s website, it accepts medical insurance, but notes that benefits and policies vary.
