You are here


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 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.”
