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 firmly believe that ACI is why my son is still alive, back with our family, and back to school. As a mother my primary concern was that my son would receive compassionate care and the attention he needed to focus on his recovery. We have been through this before and I was losing hope, so was my son. It is a very lonely and dark place to be. All ACI staff, doctors, nurses, and counselors were always available when I had questions. We were able to visit and we had a family therapy session where I learned that I had to take care of myself too, without feelings of guilt. We also learned how to set limits and boundaries. At last, freedom, from the emotional pain of being part of an addicted family. My son learned the skills he needs to sustain his sobriety. He learned about the importance of maintaining sober friends and activities. He learned how to say no and change the things in his life that kept holding him back from happiness, health, and success. Thank you ACI I have my son back!”
