What Makes Us Unique?

What Makes ILC Different from Other Treatment Centers?

When searching for a treatment program, many find themselves wading through unfamiliar waters, and it can be difficult to tell what differentiates one program from another. We talk through these differences every day with families and potential clients. We understand how overwhelming this process can be, and we make it our goal to help you feel as educated and confident in your decision as possible.

Below we have listed the aspects of our program that we feel are unique to Integrative Life Center.


Expert Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Many treatment centers offer separate programming for substance abuse, disordered eating, intimacy disorders, and mood disorders. Few offer comprehensive treatment for more than one issue at the same time. At Integrative Life Center, we offer care that treats the primary problem, while also addressing the underlying, more complex issues that are often caused by unresolved trauma. Our coping mechanisms wear many different masks. Instead of honing in on how people use destructive behaviors to cope, we are far more interested helping them discover why. We believe that by focusing on treating the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – people can begin to move towards lasting recovery.

Experienced, Masters-Level Clinical Staff

Each client’s group therapy and individual sessions are facilitated by at least a master’s level clinician with speciality training. The majority of our clinical staff are Licensed Professional Counselors with a Mental Health Service Provider designation (LPC-MHSP). To practice in the state of Tennessee, this requires being awarded not only a graduate degree, but over 3,000 hours of supervised clinical work before you are allowed to take the first of two licensing exams administered by the National Board for Certified Counselors. Long story short? Our Primary Counselors know their stuff.

Real World Recovery Setting

We believe that healing takes place in a real world, community-based recovery setting. Although each person’s needs in recovery differs, everyone must deal with the realities of recovering in the real world at one point or another. Our treatment centers and transitional living residences are located in the trendy, urban Edgehill Village neighborhood near downtown Nashville. The urban environment and access to amenities creates both opportunities and obstacles for those in recovery to overcome. Our transitional living homes serve as an excellent transition environment for those stepping down from our primary residential program, Morning Star Lodge, located offsite or for those transferring from long-term recovery programs elsewhere.

Experience the ILC Difference.

Whether you are seeking help for yourself or a loved one, we know how lonely and overwhelming this process can feel. A phone call, email or in-person consultation gives you the opportunity to get your questions answered privately and confidentially, learn more about your treatment options, and understand the culture of our program. Our staff is here to listen, help, and meet you wherever you are in recovery.
