About Focus Healthcare of Tennessee

Utilizing 12-step philosophies and a therapeutic framework of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), we tailor treatment specifically for each patient understanding that everyone enters the process of recovery with their own unique story and background.

With this in mind, we treat every patient holistically evaluating emotional, physical and spiritual needs continually throughout their stay with us. We also engage our patients in intensive shame resiliency and self-compassion work, skill building groups based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT),  intensive relapse prevention groups, expressive therapies such as art and gentle yoga, and weekly outings.

It is very common for those who struggle with substance use to also have a co-occurring mental health condition such as depression, anxiety disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder. An individual therapist is part of each patient’s care team to ensure that any co-occurring mental health issues may also be treated along with the primary addiction.

If detoxification and residential care is appropriate, we request a 28 day stay, but also offer lower levels of care through our partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

It takes a great deal of courage to decide to let go of your drug of choice and seek recovery. We understand that the process can bring a lot of uncertainty and fear, particularly around the detoxification process. We are committed to handling each patient with compassionate care as we address their specific needs. The average detoxification period lasts between 4 and 10 days but can be longer depending on intensity and substance used. In many instances, we can provide medication support to avoid harsh withdrawal symptoms.
