Let's chat.


Alcohol and drug addiction touches every segment of society, including the heroic workers that protect us from the worst
of life’s events. Split-second decisions can determine everyday survival. Consistently facing high-stake situations, chronic
pain from injury, and impending threats can cause some people to cope by using alcohol or drugs.

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. AAC has developed an alcohol and substance abuse treatment program that addresses
the specific stressors faced by those who work in the
law enforcement field. 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 Goals

Our programs seek to address the individual addiction needs of you or your loved one and restore the health and stability
that substance abuse has taken away, 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

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

  • Aftercare support/family program
  • Reintegration assistance
  • PTSD assessment
  • Spirituality meetings
  • Nutritional assessments
