ACI utilizes evidenced based treatment modalities in our effort to provide the highest quality of care possible. We are licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) as a Behavioral Health Inpatient and Outpatient Facility and accredited by The Joint Commission. Our professional staff is dedicated to patient treatment and the recovery process.

ACI understands that addiction treatment extends beyond the scope of helping our patients refrain from drug or alcohol use. We believe in a holistic treatment approach. Past traumas, relationship issues, mental health, and physical health concerns can impact a patient’s life.

Located in New York City, ACI offers a convenient and private setting for patients to undergo a variety of therapies including:

  • Small Group Sessions
  • Family Therapy
  • Art in Recovery
  • CBT Therapy
  • Nutrition Consultation
  • Spirituality Counseling
  • Wellness/Holistic Counseling
  • DBT Group Sessions
  • 12-Step Model
  • Seeking Safety Groups
  • Drama Therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Psychotropic Medication Management
  • Couples Counseling
  • Bi-lingual Counseling (Spanish)
  • Activity Groups

We also offer intensive programs, designed to continue the curative process and prepare patients for life once they complete treatment at ACI.

Your Patient and ACI

ACI is staffed with qualified professionals twenty-four hours a day, and each patient is assigned a primary counselor/individual therapist. Group sizes are limited to no more than 10 patients and are coordinated by a group or individual counselor.

For patient admissions, you can direct your patient to fill out a screening form online or contact our intake staff at 212-378-4545 for Outpatient Services or 212-293-3000 for Inpatient Services. For any further information, we welcome calls to one of our intake representatives.

Once your patient is admitted, you will be able to work collaboratively with ACI to ensure your patient’s recovery. 

Referring a Patient

“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!”
