Nashville Alcohol/Drug Use Statistics

Various agencies in Tennessee collect data on substance misuse and substance use disorders (SUDs). Results show where Nashville is succeeding and areas in need of improvement. Alcohol and drug use statistics help inform a plan of action to ensure treatment is accessible to everyone.

Males between 35 and 44 were most common age group of those who had fatal drug overdoses. In 74% of fatal overdoses, fentanyl was present in toxicology analysis. Along with fentanyl, cocaine and methamphetamine were present in some.2

The number of visits to the emergency room for drug overdoses decreased slightly from 2,591 in 2020 to 2,583 in 2021. Most of the overdose survivors were males ranging from 25-34 years of age.

Low-Cost and Free Rehabs in Nashville

Nashville drug rehabs want everyone to get treatment. As such, several programs have been created to help with treatment-related costs, such as the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SAPT), in which local treatment centers contract with the state to accept funding that covers people who need treatment but cannot afford to pay for it.5

Eligibility criteria include:5

There are currently 12 SAPT-funded drug and alcohol rehab in Nashville:5

Other funding resources that cover your cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Nashville include the following:5

If you have insurance, it could cover part of the costs. Check with your insurance company by calling the number on your card. You can also search online using the phrase, “drug rehabs near me (or alcohol rehabs near me) accepting (the name of your insurance).”

You may also contact the alcohol or drug rehab in Nashville directly to see if you meet the qualifications for funding.

How Do I Pay for Addiction Treatment in Nashville

If you do not meet the eligibility criteria for free drug and alcohol rehab in Nashville, or if they do not have an opening at the time of your call, there are still options for affordable treatment services.

Choose a Program That Offers Payment Plans

Payment plans are contractual agreements with a rehab facility that state you will receive treatment services at a given rate. The rehab recognizes you cannot pay for the services at one time; therefore, they create a schedule to include specific dates on which you will submit a portion of the total fee. You will make payments until the amount is paid in full, which will be well after you have completed rehab.

Apply for a Rehab Scholarship

Scholarships and grants are funding sources that do not require repayment for drug and alcohol rehab in Nashville. You may have to provide financial information that shows you cannot afford a Nashville drug rehab without the financial support of a scholarship.

Although you may have to call a drug and alcohol rehab in Nashville directly to learn about their scholarships, you can also contact your county’s drug and alcohol program, which often receives funding from the state to support scholarships and grants.

Find a Sliding Scale Rehab Program

Sliding scale fee programs help people with no or low income or who cannot afford their deductible get treatment services at a reduced rate. Your income determines how much you pay.

Types of Drug and Alcohol Rehabs in Nashville

Holistic Drug Rehab

Holistic rehabs use traditional therapies and alternative therapies to treat each person’s mind, body, and spirit in recovery. Healing from SUDs does not happen overnight. However, specific techniques aid in the healing process and reconnect the link between mind, body, and spirit that drugs and alcohol break.

Examples of holistic therapies are mindfulness yoga, meditation, acupuncture, art, music, spiritual counseling, massage, fitness, and nutrition management.

Christian and Faith-Based Rehab

Many people with a substance use disorder prefer a faith-based rehab available among Nashville alcohol rehabs. Most faith-based programs are not limited to Christianity and help treat those from various religions or spiritual backgrounds. The goal is to integrate therapies that help you restore your faith so it can help you maintain recovery.

Bible studies, prayer groups, mission work, and testimonies supplement traditional therapies at faith-based rehabs.

Luxury Rehab

Comfort is a priority at a luxury drug or alcohol rehab in Nashville. The focus is on healing the whole person in a serene environment with specific therapies that target the mind, body, and spirit. Luxury programs take an individualized treatment plan to the highest level. Everything is customized to meet your needs, such as privacy, personal counselors, organic foods cooked by a chef, and onsite amenities you may find in resorts.

Massages, private rooms, private baths, fitness gyms, horseback riding, access to electronics, and outdoor activities in resort-like surroundings are a few examples of amenities at luxury rehabs.

Executive Rehab

An executive drug or alcohol rehab in Nashville meets the needs of professional businesspeople with significant responsibilities in their careers. Fear of losing a job or being overwhelmed with work after rehab is a deterrent to seeking treatment for many. Executive rehabs allow specific times each day for work. You can access computers, conference rooms, phones, and private living spaces. Some executives are permitted to travel when necessary.

When not working, you can participate in traditional therapies with a low counselor-to-client ratio, holistic therapies, gourmet meals, and access to many other perks you can often purchase a la carte.

Dual Diagnosis Rehab

One in four adults with a substance use disorder also has a mental health disorder, which is referred to as dual diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder.7 For some, self-medicating a mental health disorder may have led to an addiction. For others, drugs and alcohol may have led to a mental illness. Effective treatment for dual diagnosis addresses both disorders, as an untreated condition could trigger a relapse. Traditional and holistic therapies can help you through each phase of treatment, from detox to aftercare.

Depression and Addiction

Data from a 2020 survey of 199,070 participants shows that 14.7% had co-occurring depression and alcohol use disorder (AUD), and 11.1% had co-occurring depression and drug use disorders.8

Because a substance use disorder can lead to depression and vice versa, a treatment that addresses both conditions separately is recommended, such as a dual diagnosis drug rehab in Nashville. Working with a qualified mental health professional can help you  decide if an antidepressant medication can enhance your recovery.

Anxiety and Addiction

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 20% of people with anxiety also have a SUD.8

Anti-anxiety medications are an effective treatment for all types of anxiety disorders. It helps you stabilize to participate in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapies, mindfulness, and treatments specific to your type of anxiety disorder. For example, if you have a phobia, exposure therapy can help.

PTSD and Addiction

Data reports suggest that 46.4% of civilians and veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) also meet the criteria for a substance use disorder.9 Another study of veterans with a comorbid diagnosis of alcohol use disorder and drug use disorder also have PTSD.10

Cognitive behavioral therapy works well for both PTSD and addiction. Forms of CBT, like trauma-focused CBT, can be adapted and supplemented with treatments such as Seeking Seeking Safety (S.S.), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and exposure therapy. For some, antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications can be beneficial.

Bipolar Disorder and Addiction

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) reports on the bipolar disorder and substance misuse connection. Reports claim between 30% and 50% of people with bipolar disorder will develop an SUD. SAMHSA also suggests the percentage could be higher than 50%.11

Anticonvulsant medications stabilize moods in people with bipolar disorder. Doctors sometimes prescribe medications to treat mania and depression with lithium or antipsychotic medications. Cognitive behavioral therapy and its many adaptations have also been effective in treating bipolar disorder.

Personality Disorders and Addiction

Ten different personality disorders exist, with one of the more common being borderline personality disorder (BPD). One study found more than 53% had co-occurring BPD and addiction.12

Dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) treats borderline personality disorder. It is also an effective method to treat substance use disorders.

Types of Addiction Therapy Used in Drug Rehab in Nashville

Every drug or alcohol rehab in Nashville will use evidence-based behavioral therapies for treating substance use disorders. The goal is to replace unhealthy thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with more constructive ones. Below are examples of standard behavioral therapies.13

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most prevalent behavioral therapies that help address negative thought patterns. Rather than letting these patterns influence your feelings and behaviors, you learn to change them to rational, healthy thoughts. Doing so leads to better problem-solving and improved reactions. Numerous types of CBT are available for use in therapy.

Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) is a form of CBT that uses mindfulness to help you be present and aware of what is happening now. Mindfulness techniques teach you to avoid emotion-based reactions and, instead, calm yourself to make informed decisions. Rather than escape negative situations by misusing alcohol or drugs, you learn to work through them and make your needs a priority.

Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET)

Motivational enhancement therapy helps you overcome any hesitation or ambiguity regarding entering recovery. It enables you to assess your SUD and the consequences it causes and create a desire to change.

Contingency Management (CM)

Contingency management (CM) is a structured form of therapy that uses incentives and rewards to change behaviors. For every milestone you reach in recovery, you earn money, prizes, or vouchers that can be used in the community or while in treatment. Incentives keep you working toward a goal and give you an additional reason to change behaviors.

Group Therapy

Licensed treatment professionals lead group therapies, and each session focuses on a specific topic familiar to the substance misuse of all group members. Topics include relapse prevention, communication, conflict resolution, depression, anxiety, triggers, coping skills, etc. Group therapy is a place where you can give and receive beneficial feedback from your peers.

Family Therapy

Family therapy can include anyone you consider family that is close to you and is affected by your SUD. Your loved ones may be part of the problem and need to learn how to support your recovery rather than supporting your addiction. In family therapy, everyone can learn how to set healthy boundaries, stop enabling, and for some, start their recovery. It can help you and your family get on the same page to create a supportive environment and build healthy relationships.

Substance Abuse Marketing Law

Passed in 2018, Tennessee is now enforcing regulations that prevent substance abuse treatment facilities from false marketing tactics. Facilities must be transparent and avoid manipulation in all marketing efforts.

Expanded Availability of Naloxone

Naloxone (Narcan) is a life-saving drug that reverses opioid overdoses. Tennessee recently passed a bill that provides more prescriptions of Naloxone to people with an opioid use disorder, their family, friends, coworkers, and anyone else who may be near someone misusing opioids.
