Drug abuse doesn’t discriminate by age, gender or income, and can happen when one uses illegal substances like cocaine and heroin, or legal substances like alcohol and prescription painkillers. Call American Addiction Centers today for immediate help at 844-711-0002.
Addiction afflicts more than 23 million Americans. And while it doesn’t necessarily have to control your life, addiction is a disease that, if left untreated, can cause extreme emotional, mental and physical hurt and harm to yourself and those around you.
First, the individual has to admit he or she has a problem. The facilities in the American Addiction Centers family have a proven track record for success, but sustained recovery can’t happen without entering treatment.
For those who require it, the difficult yet necessary step called detox must occur next. Detox helps to overcome the physical addiction to drugs by cleansing the body of drug residuals. At our residential rehabilitation facilities, our staff provides medically supervised and safe detox protocol.
When you call us, we’ll work to create an individualized treatment plan that puts you on the path to recovery. All patients receive thorough assessments from expert clinical teams and are provided with a treatment plan that includes, among other components, group and individual therapy sessions, life skills training and relapse prevention.
The best answer to this question is a common saying in 12-step recovery meetings: “It works if you work it.” Drug rehabilitation can’t magically erase all of your problems. Rather, it’s a path to wellness that requires individuals to take an active role in their care. Following treatment, follow-up or aftercare is essential, which may include attending 12-step meetings or counseling referred by our staff.
Experience the joy of sobriety. There are lots of former drug users in recovery, and through hearing their stories in addiction treatment and support groups, you can find the strength to beat addiction.

We take a big picture approach to addiction recovery treatment - addressing the individual's whole lifestyle in relation to substance abuse, alcohol and binge eating addiction 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.
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.
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.
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.
