American Addiction Centers provides personalized addiction services to those in need of help, and their loved ones. Everyone deserves the highest quality of treatment, marked by clinical excellence, individualized care, and a supportive community. We work with a wide range of health insurance providers and offer payment plans to make effective alcoholism treatment as accessible as possible.

A Team of Professionals Working Alongside You

When you call any number on Alcohol.org, you will be connected with one of AAC’s admissions navigators. This person will be assigned to you and your loved ones to see you through the entire evaluation and admissions process. Your Admissions Navigator will communicate with our logistics teams, who handle:

Travel Arrangements

We book flights, drivers, and even have a medically trained sober escort service to drive patients to and from the facility.

During travel, your assigned admissions navigator will be in constant contact with you and your loved ones.

Personalized Treatment Programs

Here at American Addiction Centers (AAC), we create customized treatment programs for each of our patients. We know that everyone is different, so we offer many services to address each person’s individual recovery needs accordingly.

Alternative Therapies

In addition to detox services, AAC facilities also offer alternative therapies to assist you on your path to recovery. We offer art therapy, music therapy, yoga, and meditation just to name a few.

Alternative Therapies
Mental Health Treatment

Substance use disorders and mental health conditions often overlap with each other. When they co-occur, regardless of which one developed first, each condition may influence the course of the other.

Co-Occurring Disorders
Veterans & First Responders

First responders and veterans may face unique challenges. AAC caters to these groups battling addiction and other mental health issues, such as PTSD, depression, grief, and anxiety.

Treating Veterans

Medical Care Technology

Along with an array of therapies and services, American Addiction Centers (AAC) utilizes state of the art medical technology to ensure you or your loved one has the best chance at a successful recovery.

Pharmacogenetic Testing

A person’s genetic make up can tell us how that individual will react to certain medication. With just a non-invasive swab, AAC’s dedicated toxicology lab allows us to customize your treatment so that medication assistance is as safe and effective as possible.

Checkmark icon
EarlySense Detox Monitoring

Used during medical detox, this technology detects signs of physical distress during the withdrawal process. EarlySense sensors are placed underneath detox beds in order to monitor a person’s vitals, such as breathing rate, heart rate, and movement.
