Substance Abuse Treatment for Men in Dickson, TN

Substance Abuse

There’s no question that the 12 Steps can and do bring about long-lasting recovery. This has been shown time and time again in the lives of many recovered alcoholics and drug addicts.

However, at Freeman Recovery Center, we understand that there is typically a significant degree of trauma in the lives of people who are struggling with addiction. This is why we address substance abuse and mental health issues in ways that go above and beyond the usual 12-Step work.

Freeman Recovery’s expert team has implemented a variety of proven treatments that are individually laid out for each visitor’s success. In addition to the popular 12-Step model, we also offer individual and group counseling, experiential therapy, psychodrama, mediation and so much more.

This “Substance Abuse Treatment” area of our website is here to provide you with information regarding the many important and effective avenues to recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction we offer. Freeman Recovery’s facility is located in Dickson, TN (a suburb of Nashville) and open to men and women ages 18 and older.

Recovery Methods Used


Individual & Group Therapy

Minimum 2 Visits / Week

At Freeman Recovery Center, we believe that individual and group therapy are two of the most critical tools a treatment provider can utilize to help lead visitors toward long-lasting recovery.
Therapy groups at our facility are unique in that they allow for exploration of interpersonal styles, interactions and dynamics among group members. Some of the examples of topics discussed in our therapy groups include:

  • Mindfulness
  • Social skills
  • Emotion regulation
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Much more

Group therapy helps our visitors form connections with others and properly cope with the pre-existing issues that led to their initial struggle with addiction.

Psychodrama & Experiential Therapy


The Freeman Recovery Center team believes that in order to obtain long-lasting sobriety, you must confront the root of the cause of each individual’s addiction.

Psychodrama and experiential therapy groups are designed for those who need emotional and spiritual support regarding:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Loss
  • Perfectionism
  • Trauma
  • Abuse
  • Unresolved shame
  • Relationship issues
  • Addictive or compulsive behaviors
  • Co-dependency.

Our experiential small group work helps our guests develop new skills designed to change recurring patterns – such as those from unresolved emotional wounds. This helps individuals struggling with addiction move beyond typical defensive and denial behaviors, allowing them to express their feelings and find an authentic voice in their relationships.

Every therapy group is led by one of the leading licensed professional counselors in Tennessee.
