About the Program

Alcohol and drug addiction touches every segment of society, even the heroic officers that protect us from the worst of life’s events. In work places where tragedy, trauma, chronic pain, and sustained injury are familiar, the stakes are high.

Help for Law Enforcement

AAC recognizes the stakes are high every day for law enforcement officers and it’s our responsibility to the heroes who run towards danger instead of away from it. We’ve developed an alcohol and substance abuse treatment program specifically for individuals in law enforcement who are struggling with addiction. Our program was developed using input from veteran officers and clinicians who have worked with hundreds of officers.

Levels of Care

Individuals are assigned a level of care based on their individual clinical needs and substance abuse history. AAC is unique in that we offer different law enforcement treatment services based on level of care and services required. Following evaluation of you or your loved one’s addiction severity, you’ll be assigned a level of care and treatment based on individual history and clinical needs. Some clients transition through all levels of care as treatment progresses.

Program’s Purpose

The purpose of this program is to effectively treat officers in need, and prepare them to return to the communities they have pledged to “Protect and Serve.”

Who do we treat?

In addition to law enforcement officers, we also treat members of officers’ immediate families. For example, we can effectively treat the spouse of an officer who is addicted to prescription painkillers, or an officer’s teenage son or daughter who is abusing new designer drugs.

Who leads this program?

Our treatment program is led by James Morrison, CADC, BRI-II, a veteran law enforcement professional with decades of experience. Mr. Morrison is a retired Chicago Police Officer, who has spent nine years working in the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), and is highly experienced with workplace and family interventions.

Mr. Morrison presented “Liquid Courage: Treating Officers With Alcoholism” at the International Association of Police Chiefs with Dr. Robin Kroll. He has worked with treatment centers across the country to establish protocol for treating law enforcement officers.

Mr. Morrison says, “Michael Cartwright, founder and chairman of American Addiction Centers, has made it his mission to work with the national law enforcement community. The team here is hard at work to ensure this population has access to the best possible treatment available across the country.”

How it works:
  • Research-based treatment modalities
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Aftercare support/family program
  • Reintegration assistance
  • PTSD assessment
  • Spirituality meetings

UNCOPE — Screening Instrument for Substance Abuse

The UNCOPE consists of six questions found in existing instruments and assorted research reports. This excellent screen was first reported by Hoffmann and colleagues in 1999. Variations in wording are noted for several of the items. The first wording is the original for the “U” and “P” items. The more concrete wording of the revised versions were found to be slightly better as a generic screen. Either version of the six questions may be used free of charge for oral administration in any medical, psychosocial, or clinical interview. They provide a simple and quick means of identifying risk for abuse and dependence for alcohol and other drugs. Please maintain attribution.
