Our Approach to Treatment
We Treat the Whole Person
The first thing you should understand is that at American Addiction Centers, we value you, your individuality, and your own specific needs.
When you come to American Addiction Centers for substance treatment services, we see you as more than your addiction. You come to us with unique strengths, potential, and challenges; we believe that your abuse treatment should be personalized, too.
When you start treatment with us, you will be working with our experienced team of doctors, clinicians, and counselors to create a one-of-a-kind, constantly evolving treatment plan designed to help you get the most out of your recovery experience. Our goal is to treat the whole person, and that means addressing co-occurring mental illness, physical wellness, social issues, and more.
When you graduate from our substance addiction program, you’ll be more than sober, you’ll be ready to live a healthier, happier life without substance abuse.
Substance Abuse Rehabilitation
Every American Addiction Centers facility provides its own combination of proven therapies and services to meet your needs. All American Addiction Centers facilities provide some combination of the following:
One of the first things you’ll do as a part of your treatment at AAC is to participate in a psychiatric evaluation. Mental illness and addiction often go hand in hand. We’ll talk to you about any mental illnesses you’re dealing with, and will either continue any current medications, make adjustments to what you’re taking, or prescribe something new.
Lasting recovery starts with the latest proven, research-based tactics* in addiction and mental health treatment, including but not limited to:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Motivational interviewing (MI)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT)
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
At American Addiction Centers, you or your loved one will have access to wellness education, services, and activities to enrich your recovery journey. For example, you might choose to learn more about healthy eating or decide to quit smoking; maybe you’ll get moving with yoga, basketball, Zumba, or physical conditioning. If you have special dietary needs or simply want to eat healthier, most facilities offer consultations with registered dietitians. And if you’re dealing with medical issues or chronic disease, we can help you learn to manage your health, too.
Levels of Care
American Addiction Centers is proud to offer top-class clinical care to its patients at each level of the recovery progress. When you come to us, we’ll help determine the right treatment fit for you.
Whether you’re in need of medical detox or only outpatient treatment, we are here to meet you where you are in your recovery journey with programs, services, and support you need today.
