American Addiction Centers is a national leader in addiction treatment with dozens of facilities across the country providing inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment services.

Here are a few reasons why AAC is among the country’s top treatment providers:

#1 Expertise in Treating the Disease of Addiction

AAC specializes in providing those suffering from the disease of addiction with treatment marked by clinical excellence, individualized care, and a supportive community that inspires believable hope. AAC executes an integrated care delivery model that addresses each patient as a whole person.

#2 Accredited High-Quality Care

AAC’s high standards of care can be seen through all of AAC’s facilities being accredited by The Joint Commission and/or The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). AAC’s addiction programs and therapies have been assessed by the most respected organizations in addiction and mental health treatment.

#3 Multidisciplinary Clinical Staff

AAC also has a clinical staff comprised of both board-certified physicians and other licensed clinicians that specialize in treating the disease of addiction. From medical doctors to advocates to board-certified psychiatrists to social workers and beyond, AAC’s staff of compassionate, qualified professionals is committed to the success and well-being of each patient in their care.

#4 Clinical Diagnostic Technology

Additionally, AAC implements specialized diagnostics through its addiction-focused laboratory that works beyond traditional drug testing and sets AAC apart from other treatment centers. The company’s clinical diagnostic technology helps identify comorbid medical issues that can hinder the recovery process. AAC also utilizes pharmacogenetics testing, the combined study of medications and inherited genetic traits, to guide prescribers to select the right dose of the right medication for a patient, tailored to each client’s unique DNA.

#5 Longitudinal and Transparent Outcomes Study

American Addiction Centers is also one of the only major providers to contract with a third party nonprofit research company to conduct a multiyear outcomes study. This study disclosed the full methodology with complete transparency, and reported comprehensive outcomes including a discussion of study limitations. Results showed that 63 percent of patients surveyed one year post-treatment were abstinent from all substances at that time, exceeding national benchmarks. Further, the study indicated better familial relationships and improved mental health.

#6 Critical Online Treatment Center Directories

Lastly, AAC operates industry-leading online directories — including and — that provide information about treatment centers across the country for patients seeking help. Online resources are critical to ensure patients can maintain privacy as they begin their search for treatment, given the continued stigma unfortunately associated with addiction. Directories also empower patients to make informed treatment decisions by comparing a wide array of treatment options.

While treating the disease of addiction can be difficult, even heartbreaking, AAC has never wavered in its mission to provide quality, compassionate care to adults struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. For all of these reasons and more, AAC leads the way in the addiction treatment industry.
