We take a big picture approach to addiction recovery treatment - addressing the individual's whole lifestyle in relation to substance abuse, alcohol and co-occurring mental health issues and partnering with the family throughout the treatment process whenever possible. With our research-based programs, we don’t just focus on the problem, we strengthen the individual and focus on the future.
We have designed our treatment programs to provide services that are research supported and are effective for producing long-term recovery.
Of those with a substance abuse problem, up to 50 percent also have a mental health disorder. We work with clients who suffer with alcohol, drug, and other addictions that are co-occurring with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, trauma and more.
Our program is augmented by the 12-Step philosophy. Introduced in the 1930s by Alcoholics Anonymous, the 12 steps were designed to help individuals achieve physical, emotional, and spiritual recovery.
Medical research recommends seeking detox services rather than trying to quit “cold turkey” to reduce the risks of health complications and relapse. Our licensed team of medical doctors and nurses address any medical issues, administer appropriate medications, and provide 24/7 supervision.
Clients are assigned to a therapist, but also work with a multi-disciplinary treatment team dedicated to providing comprehensive and supportive care. Clients participate in daily, therapeutic and recovery-oriented groups, as well as weekly one-on-one sessions with their therapist to get to the roots of the underlying causes of addiction.
Because of the challenges in the months just after treatment, our aftercare includes individualized continuing care plans. Essential to the aftercare process, clients are encouraged to participate in our Alumni Program that offers regional events, recovery meetings, and a recovery network to keep clients connected. Thousands of clients have graduated from AAC to continue a life of recovery and believable hope.

AAC offers a full spectrum of substance abuse treatment services to clients, based upon his or her individual needs as assessed through comprehensive evaluations at admission and throughout their participation in the addiction recovery program. The assignment to and frequency of services corresponds to individualized treatment plans within the context of the level of care and treatment intensity level.
Medical Detox is the highest level of care because it involves medical monitoring of the withdrawal process so the body can safely heal from chemical dependency. During detox, which typically lasts 5-7 days, our licensed team of medical doctors and nurses addresses any medical issues, administers appropriate medications, and provides 24/7 supervision.
Clients enter residential treatment, also known as inpatient treatment, once they are medically cleared and their withdrawal symptoms have stabilized. Residential clients reside at our facilities and are monitored 24/7. Staff ensures clients are safe, actively involved in their treatment program and are attending regular group therapy and two individual therapy sessions per week. Co-occurring behavioral and mental health issues are addressed, as appropriate. Commonly treated co-occurring issues are depression, bipolar, anxiety, and trauma conditions.
PHP is a structured program providing care at least five days a week for no less than six hours per day. Partial Hospitalization Program clients attend daily programming, structured group therapy, and weekly individual therapy sessions. They also have greater access to the community and outside support group meetings, while learning how to have fun in recovery through recreational activities and experiential therapies. The purpose of PHP is to move clients away from around-the-clock supervision and gain more "real-life" experience in the community.
The least restrictive of our treatment programs, providing care for three days a week, three hours per day, at minimum, this program allows clients greater access to the community. The focus of an IOP is to reintegrate these individuals back into society while further developing aftercare/discharge plans, exploring job and/or volunteer opportunities, and preparing to make the transition to the next step in their recovery.
