Comprehensive Community Services‘ (CCS) mission is to “enhance the ability of clients and their families to succeed in life.” Founded in 1970, it offers residential treatment in Kingsport, a small city in the Mountain Empire region of northern Tennessee. CCS also provides outpatient substance abuse treatment at three locations in the region, in Greeneville, Kingsport and Bristol.
Accommodations and Food
Up to 42 clients reside in a two adjoining residences. Men and women are housed in separate areas in each residence, and all residents have at least one roommate.
The facility employs a kitchen staff to prepare standard American cuisine for residents. Menus can be altered to accommodate dietary preferences and allergies. Residents receive chore assignments which include doing the dishes after meals, and all residents are expected to clean their rooms daily.
While television isn’t available at CCS, residents can go for walks outside the facility and bring reading material to treatment with them. Personal computers and cell phones are not permitted.
Treatment and Staff
Upon admission, residents are assessed and given a treatment plan that includes group and individual therapy. Most residents attend seven treatment groups each day and have individual therapy several times each week. Treatment groups can be large, sometimes involving the entire residence, but smaller gender-specific groups are available for some treatment topics.
Groups are led by Master’s-level therapists including MSWs and MFTs who use CBT, the 12-step framework and Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT). Group topics include relapse prevention, recovery skills and creating spiritual support.
Clients are encouraged to attend 12-step meetings. Each Tuesday the residence has a facilitator lead an on-site 12-step meeting. Other days, residents familiar with the meeting format lead 12-step meetings for their peers.
On Friday and Saturday nights CCS hosts movie nights for residents. Case management services are available for clients needing help locating post-treatment housing and healthcare. For aftercare, many alumni of CCS’s residential program can enroll in outpatient treatment at one of its nearby outpatient locations. For clients from other areas of Tennessee, CCS can help them locate outpatient substance and mental health treatment in their areas.
Comprehensive Community Services has provided residential substance abuse treatment in northern Tennessee for over forty years. With three neighboring affiliated outpatient clinics and a case management staff able to help residential clients secure outpatient treatment in other areas of the state, Comprehensive Community Services provides a promising option for those who know their sobriety will be enhanced by on-going clinical and peer support.
