JourneyPure At The River delivers an integrated, trauma-informed treatment model to meet the specific needs of men and women in the Middle Tennessee area.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in six Tennesseans struggles with substance misuse and more people die annually from drug overdoses than car accidents. "To see lives ruined and families destroyed when they don't have to be forces me to be passionate every day about the work we do," says Dr. Samuel A. MacMaster, JourneyPure's co-founder and chief clinical officer.

Like other chronic illnesses, treating addiction demands more than a 30-day plan.

The clinical team assigns each patient a personal recovery coach to help create an individualized aftercare plan that integrates recovery skills learned in treatment into everyday life by utilizing the app to designate goals and monitor participation in real time. By creating a recovery support system, JourneyPure At The River's patients can achieve lifelong sobriety.
