Recovery is a 24-hour-a day experience. It’s every decision and every temptation. Every new experience. Every win.
Morningstar is our highest level of programming where clients participate in a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) level care and reside in one of our homes. Each person receives a customized treatment plan aligned with their progress and goals in recovery. Morningstar is an enriching experience for those struggling with trauma, addiction, eating disorders or co-occurring disorders. Participants also attend five outside meetings—12-step, spiritual or other—per week.
Housing for Morningstar is a breath of fresh air. Located on 25 wooded acres in the Tennessee hills are two separate, 6-person homes. Trained and vetted resident assistants are on-site and on duty at all times.
From day one, our medical team assesses, treats and evaluates each client from a biological perspective to ensure optimal health and benefit from program participation.
Skilled master’s level therapists lead 25 hours per week of group therapy, as well as at least two one-on-one sessions. Therapy includes evidence-based practices like:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Complementary therapies and adventure activities support the clinical work. Hike the nearby hills. Get creative in the onsite art room. Attend a sober poetry reading. Participate in acupuncture, breathwork, equine, low ropes course, psychodrama or sweat lodge. Learn and practice essential life skills.
