Types of Therapy

ACI’s treatment philosophy is that addiction is a complex and treatable disease that has significant impact on the brain as well as day-to-day functioning of the individual. Alcohol and substance dependent individuals experience significant difficulties in all life's areas including family conflict, social isolation, and financial problems.

We embrace the notion that therapeutic treatments addressing the mind, body, and spirit, are a crucial part of the recovery spectrum. Therefore, our treatments are holistic, integrated, and comprehensive. We are also aware that all individuals have a personal life narrative and unique life experiences, their recovery cannot be addressed by one plan or by one treatment. That is why our experienced staff develops comprehensive assessments and utilizes evidence-based treatments that are trauma informed, and provided on-site by our compassionate team of professionals.

ACI utilizes a combination of treatments that are built upon a variety of therapeutic concepts tailored to each individual's needs and abilities.

At ACI, we are also cognizant that many of our patients come to us with additional disorders like PTSD, anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. Each patient's treatment plan will address these issues, many of which underly addictive behavior. Our mission is not simply the cessation of alcohol and substance abuse but the achievement of true recovery of the mind, body and spirit.

"I used to be a successful teacher. I was proud of myself and my achievements. I started using drugs and hit rock bottom. Then a friend took me to ACI. I went to detox and rehab. I am currently enrolled in the outpatient program and am doing great. I love where I am living and I love the staff at ACI. I am so grateful for the fellowship I have with my peers. I look forward to going to groups, seeing my counselors and the friends that I made. My favorite thing is “Jump Start Café” on Friday morning. I am learning how to have fun without using. I finally feel lucky to be alive.”
