I came to this facility for alcohol dependence and it was such a great experience. The therapists and each and every staff member were absolutely incredible. I was treated with respect and treatment was tailored to my individual needs. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking treatment for substance abuse. If you need help this is the place to go.

This place saved my life

I was sick & tired of hurting my family. I was in denial big time… Finally I’m going uphill … Its the best decision of my life.

It’s a place that cares

When I arrived at the place, I felt like I was going to be okay… This place is dual-diagnosis so its not only drugs or alcohol but also depression or something else. I wanted to be treated… I feel really good now.

I’m building a foundation

I’m 58 years old… Don’t take as long as I did to do this. Please… If you need a treatment facility. If you need someplace to go, call American Addiction Centers. They can help because they know the way home.

Physically & mentally, I feel stronger.

I got tired of seeing everyone smiling and being happy… asking myself “what are they so happy about?”. I want to feel that… It has changed my life. In some ways, it's saved me from me.

I don’t want to be the person I was

I have got to fix me so I don’t drink and go back to old behavior. That is what I learned here. How to fix my behavior, how to deal with life… I’m confident about going home.
