      Risks of Non-Medical Detox

      Detox Risks

      While going through detox, some individuals with significant levels of alcohol dependence may experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Left unmanaged, heavy alcohol users may experience a range of symptoms from uncomfortable to potentially fatal stopping use.

      Because of this, a supervised, medical detox can help individuals avoid unnecessary discomfort or severe withdrawal complications.

      Who Is American Addiction Centers?

      About American Addiction Centers (AAC)

      American Addiction Centers (AAC) is a nationwide provider of addiction treatment centers offering a wide range of treatment options, as well as many aftercare programs including support groups and alumni events.

      Our Range of Treatment Options* Includes:
      Medical Detox
      You’re in good hands with us during detox. You’ll be safe and comfortable, attended to 24/7 by our doctors and nurses. We utilize the revolutionary EarlySense technology to monitor your vital signs while you sleep.

      Inpatient Residential Programs
      All of our facilities welcome patients in residential rehabilitation where we provide live-in treatment that is fully focused on recovery in a sober environment.

      Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
      An intensive outpatient program (IOP) involves going to treatment several hours per day but returning home when you’re done. Many people will step down from residential or day treatment into an IOP.

      General Outpatient
      Standard outpatient therapy provides a limited number of therapy hours per week. Outpatient therapy can keep you grounded in your goals and connected to sober supports as you progress in your recovery.

      Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment
      At American Addiction Centers, we treat the whole person. All AAC facilities provide the highest-quality care for co-occurring disorders, such as addiction and depression.

      Private & Group Therapy

      Working through complicated trauma can be difficult, which is why we offer individual therapy with an assigned therapist. These sessions are held a minimum of 1x/week.

      Group therapy sessions offer a nonjudgmental environment to share your experiences and encouragement with peers while forging a new path towards recovery together.


      Aftercare Planning & Support

      Your case manager will help you decide a post-treatment transitional program. Even joining a local 12-step meeting can be helpful to keep sober minded.

      After discharge, we will transport you to the airport or a local sober living home of your choosing, and keep in contact as you ease back into an unsupervised environment.


      Does Your Insurance Cover Rehab?

      If you aren’t ready to call us yet, you can check your insurance coverage for addiction treatment. We work with many insurance providers to help you get affordable and life changing treatment.
