One of the first things you’ll do as a part of your treatment at AAC is participate in a psychiatric evaluation. Mental illness and addiction often go hand in hand. We’ll talk to you about any mental illnesses you’re dealing with, and will either continue any current medications, make adjustments to what you’re taking, or prescribe something new.
Lasting recovery starts with the latest proven, research-based tactics* in addiction and mental health treatment, including:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Motivational interviewing (MI)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT)
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
- Motivational enhancement therapy (MET)
- Seeking Safety
- Gestalt therapy
- Solution-focused therapy
*Facility offerings vary
At an AAC center, you or your loved one will have access to wellness education, services, and activities to enrich your recovery journey. For example, you might choose to learn more about healthy eating or decide to quit smoking; maybe you’ll get moving with yoga, basketball, Zumba, or physical conditioning. If you have special dietary needs or simply want to eat healthier, most facilities offer consultations with registered dietitians. And if you’re dealing with medical issues or chronic disease, we can help you learn to manage your health, too.

Your safety during detox is our number one concern.
Intensive Residential Treatment
IRT structured a lot like traditional residential treatment, with individual therapy, group therapy, psychoeducational programming, and on-site 12-step recovery meetings. However, it also includes 24/7 nursing care, continuous monitoring, and daily visits from psychiatric and/or medical staff.
Intensive Residential Treatment gives you a safe, effective treatment option if you or your loved one are dealing with unmanaged mental illness, high blood pressure, pregnancy, risk of suicide, or other issues. You’ll work with our experienced and compassionate staff on specialized treatment planning, case management, and discharge planning that considers your unique medical or psychiatric needs.
One of the reasons Residential Treatment is so effective is its highly structured environment, with a balance of scheduled groups, therapy sessions, relaxation, and recreational time each day. Our supportive, compassionate staff are on-site 24/7, and you’ll work with your treatment team from day one to create a personalized discharge plan and prepare for a smooth transition to the next level of care. A 60- to 90- day stay in Residential Treatment program can have a dramatic impact on your successful recovery.
Partial Hospitalization Program
Daily programming includes group therapy and individual therapy (weekly), recreational activities, outside support group meetings, holistic care, experiential therapies, and/ or alternative therapies. You’ll work with our experienced staff to develop a discharge plan that’s customized to your needs and goals, designed to help you transition to the next level of care.
Intensive Outpatient Program
An IOP experience shows you how to exercise your sobriety in the real world and prepares you for the next steps in your recovery journey through individual and group therapy sessions, thorough aftercare planning, helpful support groups, and even exploring employment opportunities.
