About Behavioral Health Group Knoxville Bernard Treatment Center

Unlike addiction treatment for other types of drugs (such as stimulants and sedatives), people considering opiate detox can take advantage of medications that specifically treat opiate withdrawal effects. These medications are formulated to address the physical damage left behind by long-term opiate abuse. In effect, medication-based treatment approaches provide an added layer of support during the detox stage of recovery.

BHG Knoxville Bernard Treatment Center has ample experience in using medication-assisted treatments to help individuals break the body’s dependence on opiate effects. Our program is a SAMSHA-certified, Opioid Treatment Program accredited by the Joint Commission.

While opiate addiction recovery doesn’t happen over night, the length of time you’ll spend in treatment will depend on how well you progress through the program. If you’ve battled opiate abuse and addiction for a while now, our program can help you stop the cycle of opiate abuse in your life.

Treatment Options

Ongoing opiate abuse ultimately destabilizes the brain’s chemical system over time. Before long, the brain comes to need opiates to carry out its regular functions. These developments account for the uncomfortable withdrawal effects that come with detox and make it so difficult to maintain continued abstinence. Under these conditions, it’s medically unsafe to go through detox withdrawal without some form of treatment support.

Behavioral Health Group Knoxville Bernard Treatment Center use methadone and Suboxone medication therapies to treat the brain’s state of chemical imbalance, and in the process relieve uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. This line of treatment is not only safer, but also enables you to better respond to the behavior-based portion of the treatment process.

Services provided along with medication therapy treatment include:

  • Medical evaluation
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Treatment planning
  • Medical monitoring of methadone/Suboxone effectiveness


Opiate addiction disrupts most every major area of a person’s life. Once addiction takes hold, daily routines and responsibilities start to give way to drug-using urges. For these reasons, a detox treatment environment must not only address the physical discomforts that come with detox, but also the behavioral dysfunction that addiction breeds.

The Behavioral Health Group Bernard Treatment Center executes a set of program policies that work to create a recovery-focused environment. Our policies help to promote a growth-centered atmosphere, which is an essential component of the recovery process.

Here are a few of BHG’s policy rules:

  • Patient privacy remains protected by confidentiality protocols that staff must follow
  • No drugs or alcohol on the premises
  • Routine drug-testing
  • Can only smoke in designated areas

With the necessary treatment supports, it is possible to successfully complete opiate detox and maintain continued abstinence for the long-term. Our program can help. For more information on BHG’s program offerings, call our helpline at 800-483-2193(Who Answers?).


Medication therapy treatments used by our program help you break the body’s physical dependence on opiates, which is good; but it’s also important to treat the brain’s psychological dependence on opiates. Psychological dependence results in poor decision making, warped priorities and an inability to meet daily responsibilities. In effect, psychological dependence becomes the driving force behind the addiction problem.

Behavioral Health Group Knoxville Bernard Treatment Center uses behavior-based treatment interventions to help you manage the affairs of everyday life without having to use opiates to cope when things get stressful. These services are included as part of the detox treatment process.

Behavior-based interventions used include:

  • Identifying issues and triggers that feed into drug-using behaviors
  • Developing relapse prevention strategies
  • Individual psychotherapy and group therapy sessions
  • Drug education and counseling
  • Support group meetings
