Our Location

TRUE Addiction and Behavioral Health’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is designed to provide a comforting and supportive setting for those seeking treatment. We know that our patients come from many different circumstances. Because of that, we have customized a unique plan that supports their healing journey.

We do this by providing a comprehensive emotional memory assessment to each client. This assessment equips our qualified professionals with the ability to understand the core root issues of each client and develop a treatment plan that presents the team with the tools necessary to meet the client’s needs.

Therapy sessions and groups are essential to recovery for addiction treatment and mental health support. With our therapist caseload of 6-8 patients, we can ensure that every patient receives high levels of attention and personalized treatment. The sessions held at our IOP rehab focus on providing a more intimate setting for therapy through this level of care.

Benefits of IOP Rehab at TRUE

Since our IOP is a flexible treatment option without an inpatient stay, our clients get to maintain their daily routines while still addressing their needs. Hospitalization or inpatient treatment is not required for this program. IOP is an outpatient treatment that aims to stabilize mood swings, manage symptoms, and improve functioning.

At TRUE, patients in our IOP receive treatment from 9:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M Monday-Friday, with an option of additional treatment on Saturday. Many IOP schedules only offer treatment 3-4 times a week, but we’ve taken steps to go the extra mile.

Due to our owner’s personal recovery journey, TRUE understands the need for increased support during treatment. By offering more sessions per week and a low client caseload for therapists, our patients receive greater benefits from our programs and progress more quickly. We help patients discover the best version of themselves.

Our clients can also expect the following benefits during their program:

  • Comprehensive Treatment: Even though our clients return home after treatment, the level of behavioral health we provide doesn’t change. You will receive evidence-based therapeutic services, including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), EMDR therapy, CEMA, and a blend of 12-step and faith-based treatment approaches.
  • Supportive Environment: Our team of healthcare providers understands the ins and outs of substance abuse and mental health treatment. Some staff members are in long-term recovery, including our owner, lead therapist, and clinical director. This gives them a unique insight into helping clients in ways that not all clinicians can.
  • Flexibility and Individualized Treatment: Meeting the specific needs of our clients is essential to recovery. Our flexible scheduling options allow you to maintain personal commitments while receiving the needed treatment.
  • Trauma-Informed Treatment: We recognize how traumatic experiences can influence individuals and contribute to substance abuse and mental health conditions. Our approach focuses on trauma responses and helps patients get to the root of their negative feelings.
  • Continuity of Care: Our IOP program doesn’t stop when the program is complete. We provide aftercare resources and continued therapy. This allows for the necessary tools for relapse prevention and understanding life skills that can be maintained for years.
  • Holistic Approach: This therapy is an alternative treatment service that focuses on the whole person, not just specific addiction-related symptoms. Our therapists consider our clients’ physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, allowing them to achieve balance and develop coping skills.

IOP Rehab Services

Evidence-based practices for addiction are beneficial because they provide a framework for treatment. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has studied, evaluated, and approved these practices to help individuals recover from addiction. 

Our goal is to get to the bottom of addictive reactions, mental health disorders, and co-occurring disorders. Once we do, we help our clients cope with long-term recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) makes individuals aware of attention and concentration problems. It improves their organization and time management. They can break down tasks easier to manage their daily lives. CBT builds confidence and controls impulsive behavior. Individuals gain confidence and can control impulsive and risky behaviors.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) helps individuals participate in their therapy. Professionals recommend DBT as a treatment for mental health disorders and substance abuse disorders (SUD) because it is effective. DBT combines CBT, mindfulness, and acceptance strategies. DBT teaches essential skills for managing emotions, impulsive behavior, and relationships. Individuals set goals, track progress, and make decisions about their treatment.

Comprehensive Emotional Memory Assessment (CEMA)

Comprehensive Emotional Memory Assessment (CEMA) evaluates underlying shame-based belief systems that generate emotional pain, compulsion, maladaptive behaviors, and negative emotions that drive chemical and process addictions. The assessment is administered by a licensed therapist who holds an ancillary session to conduct a diagnostic interview.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) helps individuals understand unhelpful thoughts that can lead to negative emotions or behaviors. REBT focuses on the moment and what a person is feeling. Our therapists help you form new ways of approaching challenges, thoughts, and circumstances. The root of the adverse emotions is addressed so that self-sabotaging behavior can taper off.

Individual and Group Therapy

Individual therapy is vital for those in recovery to have, which is why TRUE provides 2 individual therapy sessions per week for each patient. One-on-one therapy time can be used to discuss any issues you face with professionals who intimately understand what you are going through. You can discuss how the treatment progresses, the lifestyle difficulties you are experiencing, the temptation to relapse, etc. Anything you wish to discuss privately that you feel reluctant to mention in group therapy can be discussed here.

In group therapy, individuals can come together and share similar experiences with battling addiction. Our small group sizes of 6-8 patients allow individuals to foster connections with their peers and share vulnerabilities in an intimate setting. Listening to others discuss their struggles during group sessions can be a potent reminder that you are not alone. An essential function of group therapy is showing that everyone has different triggers. With the help of a skilled group therapy coordinator, a great deal of meaningful discussion and personal revelation can be had within groups.

Holistic Therapy

Holistic therapy is an alternative treatment service that focuses on the whole person, not just specific addiction-related symptoms. Our therapists consider our clients’ physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, allowing them to achieve balance and develop coping skills. It is ideal for treating mental health conditions and substance use disorders.

Our holistic services currently include yoga, guided meditation, and mindfulness group. With plans to incorporate chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, and animal therapy coming soon, our holistic approach will help patients heal from underlying conditions and discover an overall sense of wellness.


EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy, people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.

Electrodes on the skull can track these impulses and show how they work. Capturing these pictures can tell us a lot about how the brain communicates. And through this, we can see how substance abuse has affected that communication.

Why Choose TRUE Addiction and Behavioral Health?

Many years ago, our founder saw a need for better services and more personalized care within substance abuse and mental health treatment centers. The core natures and creative instincts of people were not being served to their fullest potential. With his personal experience in recovery, he could recognize what programs currently lacked.

While the mental health and drug addiction industry strives to offer the best experience, we still find room for improvement for those seeking treatment. The elements of treating the whole person in physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being were not discovered, and the outcomes provided insights into the results. 

After many years of assessing and evaluating services, resources, treatment modalities, and programs, our founder discovered a more in-depth method of treating people struggling. In hopes of receiving better outcomes, TRUE set out to revive the heartbeat of recovery by motivating the communities to be thriving sources to provide better resources for recovery.

TRUE has established a treatment program that examines all four physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being elements. Knowing this leaves the person in a position to strive for success, leaving no room for compromise in life. TRUE is connected to the concepts of community and provides a community structure within our program. Our core beliefs provide an extensive framework that focuses on personal growth and finding purpose.

We know everyone is looking for a chance to belong to something in their life, so TRUE provides a pathway for all to discover their belonging and community for a purpose. 

The Next Step after IOP Rehab

Our next steps after IOP can include 12-step programs, life coaching, recovery coaching, and support from peer support specialists.

  • Build Strategies for Self-Healing: Building strategies that help guide you through triggering situations among peers allows you to understand how relapse occurs and develop coping strategies. 
  • Establish Spiritual Grounding: Belief in a Higher Power encourages individuals to believe forgiveness is possible. It’s never too late to start again.
