Our Mission

Our goal is to provide highly individualized, confidential treatment to help individuals succeed in recovery. As part of Foundations Recovery Network, Foundations Nashville believes in treating the whole person—mind, body and spirit. By pairing clinical and psychological treatment with flexible outpatient programs, individuals with co-occurring addictions and mental disorders are able to identify the interactions of these issues and address them simultaneously to achieve long-term health.

Too often, individuals in need of treatment fall through the cracks and many who need help don’t get it. That’s why we were committed to bringing our successful model to the Nashville area. Nashville is home to large communities of business, medical, music and entertainment professionals with tight schedules, as well as individuals from all backgrounds who are looking to receive treatment in a less-structured environment. Foundations Nashville is prepared to meet the needs of each person in a convenient and comprehensive fashion.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Co-occurring Disorders

Foundations Nashville’s primary focus is to offer integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders. A staggeringly high percentage of those dealing with addiction issues are also struggling with a co-occurring mental health issues like depression, anxiety, trauma or bipolar disorder. In the past, these issues were treated separately, but research and practice have shown that people are much more likely to achieve and maintain a high quality of life if both issues are treated at the same time. This integrated treatment model has the highest success rate and offers the best possibility for long-term sobriety and recovery. 

Family Program

Foundations Nashville offers family program sessions on Tuesday evenings. All family members of patients are invited to participate in these group family education and treatment sessions. They are positive, educational sessions which include topics ranging from understanding addiction and codependency to recognizing triggers and how to provide support and help sustain recovery.

Recovery Planning

After the completion of six to eight weeks of our Intensive Outpatient Program, most individuals are ready to step down to a more limited schedule of treatment that still provides some structure and support for their ongoing sobriety. To fill this need, Foundations Nashville offers aftercare sessions that focus on recovery planning, helping individuals to maintain their sobriety and stay focused on being well.

Comprehensive Behavioral Health Assessments

Foundations Recovery Network has a dedicated team that provides assessments, whether you are determining if there is truly a substance abuse problem or you have been ordered to obtain an assessment due to legal troubles like DUI. These services can help determine ongoing issues and whether treatment is required; they can also allow us to make recommendations regarding the type of treatment and the program that would be the best fit for the individual and then make the appropriate referrals – even if it’s not to a Foundations program.

Intervention Assistance

We work with a core group of professional interventionists who practice a variety of models. There are many misconceptions out there about interventions, but the emotional scenes you see on reality shows bear little resemblance to the average intervention. The primary goal of this process is simply breaking down barriers to treatment and getting the addicted individual the help they need. If you connect with us at Foundations Nashville, we can help you find an interventionist who may be able to break down your loved one’s barriers to treatment.

Transitions: An Intensive Outpatient Program for Adolescents

At Foundations Nashville, we offer an Intensive Outpatient Program for adolescents called Transitions. This program provides teens with rehabilitation treatment for addiction and mental health issues while also teaching them life skills and equipping them with tools for long-term wellness.

Transitions sessions take place from 4pm to 7pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.

Adolescents can attend sessions on topics such as health and wellness, management of daily living skills, medication management and compliance, anger management, communication and assertiveness, and substance use and dual diagnosis. Program elements will involve specialty and process groups, in which participants can learn about different subjects and then practice new skills in a supportive environment. Foundations Nashville provides a safe haven for teenagers to find relief from sources of conflict and negative influences. Our expert team of multi-disciplinary staff members can enable teens to strengthen their identities and find positive ways to express themselves. Recovery is not simply about sobriety; it is about finding a whole new perspective and acquiring the tools needed to live a full, healthy life.

One of the elements of the adolescent program at Foundations Nashville that sets it apart from similar programs is its emphasis on healing families, not just individuals. In the Transitions program, parents are involved in treatment; they have their own groups, and they attend select groups with their teenagers. We believe that it is important for adolescents to find their own paths to recovery, but the integration of family relationships is key to transformational change for everyone. Support from the family can be a critical factor in the recovery process, and parents can find their own healing and new coping skills that will help them support their children and create a family dynamic where all members can thrive and find hope for the future.

Alumni Services

[/title] Upon completion of the Intensive Outpatient Program and the recovery planning program, patients become members of our alumni network and are invited to participate in alumni gatherings and special events. The goal of this valuable program is to aid patients in maintaining a link with the people that they came to know during treatment, and to provide continued support even after treatment has ended. Alumni are also able to take advantage of our direct alumni phone line, which they can call to refer loved ones or get an assessment for readmission. Alumni are also encouraged to join the Heroes in Recovery community, a positive place to share their stories, celebrate recovery and interact with others committed to living a sober life.
