Desert Hope and the NFL Addiction Treatment Partnership

The stigma of addiction is hard to overcome and has become a large barrier to finding the treatment that people need. Addiction affects people of all walks of life, including professional athletes and their families. No one understands the struggles professional athletes face better than Derek Price, the former CEO of Desert Hope Treatment Center and a former tight end for the Detroit Lions. That’s why American Addiction Centers partnered with the NFL Alumni Association to provide discrete addiction treatment to NFL Alumni and their family members.
