Buffalo Valley has been providing affordable alcohol/substance abuse treatment to patients in need for about 30 years now.
In the last 14 years our treatment modality has included job training, job placement assistance, GED training, life skills training, case management, housing and, of course, state of the art counseling to those most in need.
14 years ago, recognizing the great need for housing, we started another division in BVI called Valley Housing. Valley Housing has been very successful in offering affordable housing across middle Tennessee.
Buffalo Valley’s philosophy of treatment views alcohol and drug addiction as a primary, chronic, and progressive disease and promotes the treatment of addiction and co-occurring disorders in a coherent manner, focusing on both the addiction and the mental health conditions equally while simultaneously preserving and promoting the dignity of the persons served without regard to race, color, creed, gender, economic or social circumstance, sexual orientation, or national origin.
Buffalo Valley is devoted to addressing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual’s life, including the impact on the family through an evidence based multidimensional treatment approach. The complexity of the disease requires a culturally competent, non-judgmental and non-stigmatizing approach to treatment that emphasizes establishing inter-personal and social support in the recovery process, which becomes a sustaining component to long-term health and functioning.
At Buffalo Valley our belief is that chemical dependency is a primary, progressive and chronic disease that can be fatal; therefore, it is imperative that the alcoholic/addict be treated as a person suffering from an illness. Chemical dependency results from a number of causative factors, including those which are physiological, psychological, spiritual, and social in nature and origin. Therefore, our treatment approach addresses the individual needs of each person seeking our help. Assessments identify the presence of conditions contributing to substance use/abuse and how alterations of these conditions may contribute to a positive treatment outcome.
Buffalo Valley believes that individuals who demonstrate an inability to adequately and consistently abstain from the use of alcohol and/or other mood altering chemicals through outpatient treatment require a residential, drug free environment as a desirable first step in their rehabilitation process. Rehabilitation, in this context, includes both total abstinence from alcohol and other mood altering drugs and therapeutic interventions to stabilize the various life and health problems resulting from substance dependence.
