IT’S MORE THAN GETTING SOBER… IT’S A NEW WAY OF FREEDOM.
Can you control when you use alcohol or drugs, or does it control you? Does your use cause problems at work, home, in relationships or at school? If you, a family member or a friend need help because of alcohol or other drugs, call (855) 336-9327 to begin your journey toward recovery.
If you are unsure whether you need detoxification, residential treatment, intensive outpatient or other supportive services, call the Frontier Health location in your community. We’re here to answer your questions and direct you to the care you need.

ADDICTION OF ALCOHOL & OTHER DRUG SCREENING
Follow these links to complete self-screening for alcohol or other drug use. When you’re ready for help, call the treatment program in your community.
YOUR CHILD OR TEEN
Casual drug use can quickly turn into abuse, dependence and addiction. Some drugs can cause addiction after the first use so even if you believe your child or teen is “experimenting,” take action right away before there’s an accident, legal trouble or serious injury. You don’t have to do this alone.
SIGNS OF ALCOHOL AND DRUG USE
Abrupt changes in friends, groups or behavior
Declining grades and school work
Trouble sleeping or getting up
Spiraling relationships with family
Frontier Health’s caring, trained staff are here to answer your questions and direct you to the level of care your child or teen needs. We provide comprehensive intensive outpatient and other outpatient treatment at a location close to home.
MEDICATED ASSISTANCE RECOVERY PROGRAM
Medication assisted recovery is often referred to as medication assisted treatment; it is sometimes known as Buprenorphine or Suboxone treatment.
While we believe that the highest quality of life is best obtained without the use of drugs, we also recognize that complete abstinence is a long term goal. In the process of learning the skills needed to live drug free, it may be necessary to assist with medications such as Buprenorphine.
Open to Tennessee residents 18 years or older struggling with over use of or addiction to pain meds/opioids.
Services may be funded by insurance, by TNcare, or state grant funds (if verified inability to pay is established)
