Holistic healing

Milestones offers a one-of-a-kind, residential trauma treatment experience.

When the weight of the world is too much

We all encounter pain and adversity. Sometimes, the weight of past trauma piles up, and life feels too heavy to carry alone.

When your burdens become overwhelming, Milestones provides a sanctuary—a trusted place to unpack your past, make sense of your present, and re-envision the future you want to live.

A legacy of healing

Milestones began in 2014 as an expansion of the work of Onsite, world-renowned for workshops and therapeutic intensives. For over 45 years, Onsite, and now Milestones, has designed and delivered transformational experiences that optimize life and build meaning and value into the human experience.

An experience built for you

During your 30 to 90-day stay, our program is tailored to your goals, strengths, and needs. From orientation to aftercare planning, your entire journey at Milestones is intentionally curated to help you find sustained health.

Your story is unique; your treatment should be, too. Our holistic team of medical, clinical, and client care professionals work collaboratively to guide you toward transformational growth and healing. 

During your program you’ll experience: 

Group & Individual Therapy

Our group therapeutic sessions are the cornerstone of the Milestones experience, offering an opportunity to heal in a safe and nurturing community. In addition to group work, you’ll establish a trusted connection with your dedicated therapists trained in specialized trauma-informed modalities. A combination of individual and group sessions provides the catalyst for deep healing and restoration.  

Whole Body Care

Because trauma is an injury to your nervous system, we believe that the best care considers the whole you—your mind, body, and spirit. Our team of therapists, psychiatrists, nurses, and functional medicine doctors works collaboratively to help you get to the root of what ails you while helping you manage the symptoms. Our holistic team builds a treatment plan unique to you that sets you up to thrive, not just survive.  

Lectures & Meditations

Each morning, you’ll start your day as a community for a time of experiential psychoeducational lectures and mindfulness activities. This time of reflection and learning provides a foundation of understanding from which you can integrate what you’re hearing and experiencing.  

Equine & Adventure Therapy

Our Adventure and Equine Therapy program immerses you in the transformational healing elements of nature. Explore our 250 acre-campus alongside our wilderness professionals and trusted herd of horses. Breathe deeper and harness your resilience as you reconnect to the power and beauty within you.  

Family Programming

Your healing doesn’t end at Milestones. Our guests have an opportunity to invite their loved ones into their process at our monthly Family Program. This program equips you and your loved ones to learn new practices, heal unhealthy patterns, and establish new ways of being in relationship with one another. In addition, Onsite, Milestones’ sister program offers a continuum of resources to support your loved ones on their journey of health and wholeness. 

Let’s do the work, together

We offer a variety of therapeutic modalities carefully curated to address unique needs and provide a transformative experience.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy may be used to treat everything from everyday struggles to trauma to grief and loss; it is also regularly used as a component of substance abuse treatment. A fundamental premise of experiential therapy is that one’s perception determines one’s behavior. By harnessing various types of creative expression to re-experience and release negative emotions, the client may experience positive feelings such as love, forgiveness, and calm in the present. Examples of experiential therapy include animal-assisted therapy, play therapy, art therapy, music therapy, drama therapy, and wilderness therapy.

Group Therapy

Group psychotherapy or group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients together as a group. The term refers to any form of psychotherapy when delivered in a group format, but it is usually applied to psychodynamic group therapy where the group context and group process is explicitly utilized as a mechanism of change by developing, exploring and examining interpersonal relationships within the group.

Designed to restore and transform

Located on 250 spacious acres in the rolling hills of Tennessee, the Milestones campus offers ample room to explore the rejuvenating, healing power of nature. Our team utilizes all that nature has to offer to help you find your way back to you.
