For many clients at The Ranch in Tennessee, the first step in treatment begins at Piney Lodge assessment, stabilization and detox facilities, a stone’s throw away from the serene and picturesque Piney River. Under the care of our highly experienced medical and behavioral teams, clients detox from drugs or alcohol and undergo assessments and stabilization for mental health issues and compulsive behaviors.

Whether clients are struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, depression, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety or other mental health issues, we provide a full range of comprehensive assessments and evaluations. Our goals are to ensure accurate diagnoses, parse out primary issues, determine the best course of care and help clients begin healing physically, mentally and spiritually so they can embark on the next phase of treatment.
