Call for Help (615) 375-3033
While Tennessee is known for the Grand Ole Opry, Graceland and the Great Smokey Mountains, the state is also known for its substance abuse problem. Every area of the state has been affected by drug and alcohol abuse, from big cities like Nashville to small towns like Bluff City.
Drug abuse, especially prescription drug abuse, has reached epidemic levels in The Volunteer State. In fact, Tennessee residents are more likely to die from a drug overdose than a car accident.
There is hope for Tennessee residents. They can beat their addiction to drugs and alcohol at The Treatment Center.
If you or a loved one needs addiction treatment, call us now for a free consultation at (615) 375-3033. Admissions counselors are available to chat with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays.

Prescription Drug Abuse
According to the Tennessee Medical Association, Tennessee is ranked No. 2 per capita in the country for prescription drug abuse. The rise of prescription drug abuse has had devastating effects in Tennessee. The abuse and misuse of prescription drugs has caused a spike in drug overdose deaths throughout the state. Since 2010, drug overdoses have been the leading cause of death for Tennessee residents.
Although Tennesseans abuse a variety of prescription drugs, opiates tend to be the most commonly abused medication. It has been estimated that 221,000 Tennessee adults have used prescription painkillers for non-medical use in the past year. Out of those adults, it is believed that 69,000 are struggling with opiate addiction and need treatment for prescription drug abuse.
Sadly, only a fraction of these adults receives treatment for prescription drug abuse. In 2010, there were only 2,717 treatment admissions for prescription opiates.
Tennesseans are not only abusing opiates, they are also abusing Xanax and Adderall. Prescription stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin are often abused by high school and college students.
Like many other states, Tennessee has seen a resurgence of heroin addiction. Many heroin addicts often start using the drug after they have become hooked on prescription opiates. Heroin offers the same euphoria as prescription opiates, but it’s cheaper to purchase.
Drug rehab centers in Tennessee have seen a rise in heroin treatment admissions. Between 2012 and 2013, state-funded rehabs saw a 41 percent increase in admissions for heroin treatment.
Many Tennesseans are struggling with alcoholism and alcohol abuse. Every year, thousands of residents receive alcohol treatment. In 2013, over 2,500 residents received treatment for alcoholism.
Methamphetamines and Amphetamines
Tennessee constantly ranks among the top two states for meth labs. Efforts to control meth production in the state have been ineffective thus far. The prevalence of these labs continues to fuel meth addiction throughout the state. In 2012, there were over 950 treatment admissions for methamphetamine and amphetamine at Tennessee rehab centers.
Whether Tennesseans are addicted to alcohol, meth, heroin or prescription opiates, we are dedicated to helping them recover.
