In 1974, a group of concerned adults and professionals felt a need for an agency dedicated to substance abusers who were motivated to recover and function productively. The group founded a public, non-profit corporation, Alcoholism Services of Knoxville Inc., to operate Midway Rehabilitation Center.

A high quality, comprehensive, in-patient program was designed to assist individuals who have made a commitment to remain sober, develop an improved lifestyle, and to become contributing members of the community.

In 1981, Midway was granted a federal contract to serve individuals transitioning back into the mainstream of society after experiencing legal consequences.

With the completion of a new office building in 1988, Midway began outpatient services to apply the same high quality programs for individuals in the community.

In 2000, Midway implemented a comprehensive business drug testing and education program.

The quality of the professional staff and management team speaks to the longevity of Midway.

Midway Rehabilitation Center is licensed by the Tennessee Department of Health as a substance abuse treatment center for residential and outpatient treatment.

Midway Rehabilitation Center cannot release any information about current or upcoming residents.

Midway Rehabilitation Center follows HIPPA Regulations due to licensing requirements.
