Admission to ACI begins with a telephone conversation by which any question will be answered and your needs assessed. Whether seeking outpatient or inpatient services, we work with you to find the right treatment option. 

At outpatient admissions one will be greeted by our welcoming staff and oriented to the various services we provide. Each individual will meet with a member of our professional treatment team to tailor a program addressing their specific needs.

Upon arrival to our inpatient treatment facility, a member of our licensed team of professionals will analyze your condition and conduct a comprehensive admissions assessment. Following insurance acceptance, you will meet with our staff doctor for assessment and be provided with the prescription medication best suited for your detoxification needs. Once you have completed the admissions process, you will be given a personal toiletry kit to assist in your day-to-day grooming. ACI staff will escort you to a shared room and will work with you to make your stay comfortable. ACI's counseling team will design a comprehensive treatment plan, catered specifically to our patients' needs, and support the patients throughout the treatment process.

What to Bring

“I have been drinking and using drugs since I was a teenager and had no negative consequences until recently when my boss sent me to my Employee Assistance Program due to chronic lateness and absences due to my drug and alcohol use. Thank g-d that they sent me to ACI. When I got there I was really scared. I had never been to detox or rehab. The staff was so caring. When I was on the detox unit I did not feel well and the nursing staff did everything they could to make me comfortable. When I moved on to rehab I loved the counselors. The groups were great and they really understood how guilty and ashamed I felt about my life. I learned that guilt and judgment are not helpful. I learned how to think positively and how to see all that I have to live for. I owe ACI my life. Thank you all!"
