ASAC utilizes a whole person approach to treatment. We take into consideration an individual’s entire life circumstances and personal needs at time of care. Treatment plans are self-paced and individually built based on your specific needs. The involvement of supportive family and loved ones during treatment and recovery is encouraged. Family support during treatment and recovery helps to build a strong sustainable support system. Patients in treatment services often participate in multiple levels of care prior to completion.
There is no charge for a crisis session, by phone or in one of our offices and any information shared with us is strictly confidential. We offer crisis sessions to potential patients, family members, loved ones or others impacted by a substance use concern.
Assessments are designed to evaluate a patient’s needs, and are required in order to access treatment services. We offer walk-in assessments and assessments by appointment. For more information please see the Assessments Page.
