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 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!”
