Recognition for Three-Year Sales Growth of 995%

Nashville, Tennessee — American Addiction Centers, a leading national provider of inpatient substance abuse treatment services for individuals with drug and/or alcohol addiction, has been named to the Inc. 500 List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies.

The company is ranked 7th on the “Top 20 Tennessee Companies” to make the list and 4th on the list in the “Nashville Metro Area” sub-category. With a three-year (2010-2013) sales growth of 995%, American Addiction Centers (AAC) ascended to number 474 on the larger list of the 2014 Inc. 5000 companies nationally.

“Our rapid growth is a result of two factors — first, the increasingly recognized recovery solution we provide to those individuals most in need of drug and alcohol addiction treatment, and second, the dedication of our clinical team and employees who strive daily to positively impact the life of each person in our care,” said Michael Cartwright, AAC chairman and co-founder. “We are honored to be on the Inc. 500 list, and we share the achievement with our employees, partners and alumni.”

The 2014 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They are U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. The minimum revenue required for 2010 was $100,000; the minimum for 2013 was $2 million. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.‘s September issue. They represent the top tier of the overall Inc. 5000, which can be found at

AAC will be recognized among other Inc. 500 companies at the 33rd Annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony in October in Phoenix, Arizona.
