Relationship Rx Program

A new service called the Relationship Check-up

What are you doing to keep your relationship healthy?

Fixing a heartCherokee Health Systems and the University of Tennessee have teamed up to provide a FREE service called the Relationship Check-up because we care about all aspects of health, including relationship health.

The Relationship Rx program uses surveys and interviews with couples to provide a check-up for relationships, just as you might get a physical or dental check-up for your physical health. It helps you determine areas of concern you might want to focus on, and helps you develop an action plan for doing so.

We can meet with you in your home at almost any time, including evenings or weekends, or at a Cherokee Health Systems or a UT clinic between the hours of 9-5, whichever you prefer. Two sessions have been shown to result in happier, healthier relationships whether you want to make your good relationship stronger, or have some serious concerns. Interested couples may go on to enroll in the “Pillow Talk” relationship skills groups or the Workforce Connections job skills program, or utilize other resources.

Our Program Goals: The Relationship Rx program strives to connect couples to community resources; to improve couples’ relationship health; and to help couples feel more positive about seeking help for their relationships.


Why Provide this Service through Cherokee Health Systems?

Research has found that the vast majority of people suffering from relationship difficulties do not seek help, and those who do usually seek assistance in physician’s offices.
