I absolutely love what we do at American Addiction Centers and take personal pride in the progress of those we help to break free from the heavy chains of addiction. As a national leader in addiction treatment and rehabilitation, our facilities, located across the country, offer exceptional clinical programs to those in need. Each one of our amazing and professional staff members is just as passionate as I am about the success of each individual who walks through our doors. In this brochure, we’ll introduce you to our unique treatment philosophy rooted in the 5 essential elements I developed during my almost 20 years in the behavioral and mental health profession—an approach that has helped tens of thousands of people find their way to recovery. By applying these 5 elements, we believe any individual can beat any addiction. Our clinical staff, medical specialists and executive teams are caring, seasoned experts who understand the importance of integrated treatment programs customized to an individual’s mind, body and soul. From initial assessment to aftercare treatment, all of our facilities offer nurturing environments that foster successful recovery. Sincerely,

Michael Cartwright Chairman

Our proven philosophy—Rooted in

5 Essential Elements to beat any addiction


American Addiction Centers’ proven treatment philosophy binds together decades of findings and practices into the essential elements that, when applied, can help anyone beat addiction.

1. Believable Hope. Long-term recovery is possible with a change in thinking and attitude, immersion in a new mindset and being surrounded by positive role models.

2. Visualize the Life You Want.

3. Surround Yourself With Winners. Choosing the right companions is a critical step in creating a new life. Maintaining positive relationships that help facilitate believable hope is key.

4. Put Your Plan Into Action. By setting goals, an individual accepts responsibility, creates confidence and manifests believable hope. The correct actions taken to accomplish those goals will lead to a lifetime of success.

5. Maintain the Life You Love. Individuals must always keep their eyes focused, minds alert and hearts set on living healthier, happier lives. When combined, these elements play a key role in our clinical program. They also unify our team and are the foundation of the American Addiction Centers’ culture.

Clinical Assessment Upon arrival, depending on facility and client needs, they may undergo a series of clinical assessment with our certified primary therapists, Medical Directors, nurses, nutritionists and/or personal trainers to evaluate and define where they are in their recovery process.

Medical Detox When clinically appropriate, we provide onsite detoxification where clients are observed and monitored for signs and symptoms of withdrawal. Whenever possible, we contact the client’s medical provider for any medical issues and a list of prescribed medications.

Detox can be very challenging, but our physicians are highly trained in administering safe protocols to help make the process safe and as comfortable as possible. 12


Aftercare Recovery is a lifelong commitment and lifestyle. Clients meet with their primary therapist and/or case manager to discuss ongoing aftercare plans, and when appropriate

Referral sources, FMLA paperwork, connections to sober living, follow-ups to outpatient care, individual therapy sessions, reintegration back into the family and any other needs are assessed and scheduled by the facility staff.

The final plan provides clients with the appropriate contacts, resources and referrals allowing recovery to continue. Immediately following discharge we provide medication information, recovery maintenance services for followups and specific discharge plans to further ensure sobriety.

Dual Diagnosis with a singular purpose Dual diagnosis is one of American Addiction Centers’ specialties— helping men and women 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. With the care and support of our outstanding team of specialists, freedom from the

alcohol and drugs simply mask. Upon entering treatment, clients undergo a clinical assessment to evaluate and define where they are in the addiction process. In addition, their medical, psychological and substance abuse histories are reviewed in order to create the appropriate and individualized program designed for recovery. Our professional staff works diligently with clients to address the underlying causes of their addictions. Clients participate in the appropriate combinations of mental health group, one-on-one therapy and relapse prevention sessions designed to help them understand the root causes of their addiction, and how their mental illness manifested. Once these issues are addressed, the success rate of recovery improves dramatically.
