American Addiction Centers Donates Treatment To MusiCares
Headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn., American Addiction Centers provides state-of-the-art care at a dozen treatment facilities across the U.S. Now they're reaching out to musicians in need to provide vital addiction recovery services.
On April 11, the leader in substance-abuse recovery announced a donation of 30 inpatient days apiece to 12 uninsured members of the music community through MusiCares. AAC's gift will target those who otherwise could not afford medical treatment.
"Music is an integral part of the culture of Nashville and it seemed only fitting that we should reach out to those in our own backyard who may be struggling with the disease of addiction," said AAC CEO Michael Cartwright. "As one of the nation's leading treatment providers, we have seen firsthand how treatment can transform lives."
On May 10, American Addiction Centers is also supporting the 2018 MusiCares Concert For Recovery, which will honor Pearl Jam's Mike McCready with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award while celebrating addiction recovery in the music community.
The results of AAC's patient outcome study, released earlier this year, demonstrated an effective rate maintaining abstinence that was more than twice as successful than the national benchmark. The lifesaving treatment they will be donating will have a major positive impact on MusiCares' clients.
We thank them for ensuring their clinical services will be delivered to 12 members of the music community who are in urgent need of their effective, high level of care.
