Learn About Cumberland Heights

You deserve the highest quality of treatment available, and you will receive it if you come to Cumberland Heights. Our dedicated staff will walk with you every step of the way on your journey to sobriety, helping you rewrite your story — a story of hope, healing and happiness.

Cumberland Heights’ co-founders, Robert Crichton, Sr. and Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr., had a clear vision for a treatment center, “We want to have a location and a program which will enable a man to go back to the primary meanings of his life so he can start over again.”

From this foundation Cumberland Heights developed its mission — to transform lives, giving hope and healing to those affected by drug and alcohol addiction. We implement our mission by incorporating the principles of the 12-Steps with the therapeutic tools necessary to live a productive, sober life.

Our commitment to providing outcome-oriented care is why we are the first Tennessee addiction treatment center to achieve certification from the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).

The Natural Beauty of Our Campus

Surrounded by wooded hills and free from city distractions, the natural beauty of our 177 acre campus, provides the ideal setting for recovery. Located on the banks of the Cumberland River in Middle Tennessee, our campus offers a sense of calm and peace. You’ll enjoy our beautiful courtyard, Serenity Trail, orchard, memorial garden, one-mile walking trail, pond and chapel.
