Families of Adults

ACI recommends that all patients involve their family in the recovery process. At times, adults undergoing substance dependency treatment are resistant towards family therapy. ACI educates adults facing addiction on the benefits of involving family into their treatment. Research has shown that family support assists patients in achieving long term sobriety.


"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.”
