Addiction and Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center  |  Normandy, TN

Addiction Treatment Programs that Meet You Where You’re At

Recovery is not a one-size-fits-all process. Addiction is highly personal and incredibly complex. At Brooks Healing Center, we will help you find yourself and fall in love with everything you are. We give you the tools to cope with life’s swift waters and rid you of negative habits that hurt you more than they help. 

We deliver time-tested and research-backed treatment programs personalized for your specific needs and goals with an exceptional and heart-driven team.

Supportive and Ongoing Care

Brooks Healing Center Treatment Programs


Detoxing alone can feel impossible as it is much more than just willpower. Our brains adapt and depend on habits. Breaking these behaviors is no easy feat, especially when chemically addictive substances are involved. 

Before exploring the roots of addictions, learning coping skills, and developing helpful habits, it’s critical to start from a clean slate. We provide a safe, comfortable detox environment where you can regain your baseline health while a team of medically trained professionals takes care of you. You don’t have to go it alone – we are here for you, every step of the way. 

Residential Addiction and Dual Diagnosis Treatment

We greet you with open arms and hearts from the moment you step foot in our facility. There is no one path to recovery, and Brooks Healing Center understands that everyone recovers at their own pace. We offer residential stays to appeal to whatever stage of recovery you find yourself in. 

It can be difficult to learn the coping techniques for recovery when your triggers are trying to drag you back down. With residential recovery, you can submerge yourself in a structured, supervised, and supportive environment. We will help you focus on overcoming co-occurring disorders and healing your mind and body.


For those who want the benefits of a residential stay on an individualized basis – our partial hospitalization program may be for you. PHP is structure into a 30-to-60-day continuum with each plan created on a case-by-case basis. The length of the program depends on a client’s acuity and progression over time. 

We will work with you to develop the plan that best suits your lifestyle and allows you to progress towards your recovery goals. With the same access to treatments as our residential stays, our partial hospitalization program benefits individuals who have a supportive and safe home environment.

Residential Addiction Treatment
Trauma Informed Therapy

Proven Treatment Modalities

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR helps us process events from a new perspective, simultaneously reducing the emotional weight weve attached to a traumatic event or memory. Through EMDR, you can analyze and overcome traumatic experiences that drive addiction forward. Our EMDRspecialized therapist will help you address painful memories while reducing their harmful effects through eye movement. 

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavior therapy is a goal-oriented talking therapy that focuses on the cycle of how our thoughts impact our feelings and, in turn, our actions. By analyzing your beliefs about the world, CBT disrupts catastrophizing and self-sabotaging coping behaviors to develop new thought patterns for positive feelings and healthier actions. 

Trauma-Informed Therapy

The seven domains of Trauma-Informed Therapy are:

  1. Early screening and assessment
  2. Consumer-driven care and services
  3. Nurturing a trauma-informed and responsive workforce
  4. Evidence-based and emerging best practices
  5. Creating safe environments
  6. Community outreach and partnership building
  7. Ongoing performance improvement and evaluation
Our trauma informed therapists work with our patients to create an emotionally and psychologically safe environment. Patients learn how to regulate their emotions before exploring and healing from past traumas.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy uses hands-on experiences and expressive tools while revisiting difficult momentsThis approach eases negative emotions associated with traumatic moments. Activities in our experiential therapy sessions include animal care, role-playing, music, arts and crafts, and more.
