About American Addiction Centers

Learn about our story, our mission, and some of the great features that we offer to our community.

Our Story

American Addiction Centers was founded in 2007. Since that time, we have grown into the largest network of rehab facilities nationwide, with programs in California, Florida, Texas, Nevada, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.

  • We use research-based treatments to help clients with drug addiction, alcohol addiction, and mental and behavioral health issues.
  • Under the guidance of our chief medical officer, our programs are made up of addiction professionals including physicians, registered nurses, licensed marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
  • We offer high staff-to-patient ratios to ensure more personal attention for our clients, and many of our staff are in recovery themselves—so they understand what you are going through.

Our success rate is more than double the national average, and we have been featured in Forbes, Fortune, Fox News, Daily Mail, Bustle, and USA Today.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide quality, compassionate, and innovative care to adults struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Through comprehensive and customized treatment plans, we instill hope that long-term recovery is possible. Our purpose and passion is to empower you, your family, and your community by helping you achieve recovery and optimal wellness of the mind, body, and spirit.

American Addiction Centers will become the provider and employer of choice delivering data driven, evidence-based care that saves and transforms lives.

We Specialize in Dual Diagnosis (Co-Occurring Disorders)

Dual diagnosis treatment, or co-occurring disorders care is the simultaneous treatment of substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health issues. Up to 50% of those with mental health disorders also have a substance abuse problem. To combat an endless cycle of unhealthy living caused by addiction and a mental health issue (e.g. anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc.), a co-occurring disorders approach is built into the very core of our treatment programs. If you also have a medical condition (e.g. hypertension, diabetes) that is complicated by your addiction, we offer concurrent treatment for all three conditions.
