Knoxville Recovery Center & Detox
7447 Andersonville Pike, Knoxville, Tennessee, 37938
Our mission at Knoxville Recovery Center is to provide a safe and supportive environment for people who are suffering from addiction and mental health related disorders. Far too many treatment centers implement one-size-fits-all strategies that, ultimately, provide a disservice to the client. At our center, you are an individual, not a number. We aim to provide honest, effective, & high quality treatment for every individual who walks through our doors.

- Kristen SmithOperations ManagerI was born and raised in New Jersey and spent the last 14 years in South Florida before moving to Asheville in 2019 and now Knoxville, TN with my beloved dog Charlie. Because I am passionate about recovery and helping others, I have been working in the treatment industry since 2009. I am a certified alcohol and drug counselor and have been doing that for the last 2 years since leaving my position as Director of Operations of a program in Florida. I am also a full-time student pursuing my degree in human services. I know that working in this field is my purpose and love being a part of and developing a new program.
