Touching and Changing Lives

In the last year, The Council trained or provided direct services to nearly 35,000 people in our community. In addition, we reached tens of thousands more by
1) providing resources/materials to students, parents and teachers;
2) conducting public awareness campaigns via community events, billboards, public service announcements, and media coverage; and,
3) educating teachers, counselors and parents who pass on their skills and knowledge to countless others.

Thank you for helping us continue to touch and change lives!

2017 Power of Prevention Luncheon Sponsor Spotlight

We take a big picture approach to addiction treatment — by addressing each client as a whole person. Our programs include a full spectrum of services from Medically Assisted Detox, Residential, Partial Hospitalization, Out Patient Programs, and sober living.  We work to consider how factors such as your lifestyle, environment, health, and co-occurring mental health disorders may play a part in your addiction involving drugs or alcohol. By partnering with you and your loved ones throughout the rehabilitation process, we can prepare you for recovery by customizing a program of research-based addiction therapy, individualized treatment, and aftercare planning designed to anticipate some of the challenges you may encounter. Our treatment doesn’t just focus on the problem of substance use, we use a positive, hopeful approach using your individual strengths, motivation, and desire to make positive changes in your life.  Our mission is to provide quality, compassionate, and innovative care to adults struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Through comprehensive and customized treatment plans, our research-based, empathetic care we instill hope that long-term recovery is possible. Our purpose and passion is to empower you, your family, and community by helping you achieve recovery and optimal wellness of the mind, body, and spirit.  If you, a patient, or a loved one is suffering from the disease of addiction please visit our website at http://aac.to/mila.com or contact Local Treatment Manger Mila Morris directly at 214-846-3308.

Ways to Connect

Substance use disorder—known by many as substance abuse—is our country’s #1 health issue as contended by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and other respected national organizations.

home-connect01In Dallas, the volume of health-related stories involving adolescents and drugs and alcohol is staggering. Yet, we are not helpless. There are ways we can connect. There are mobilization efforts and community coalitions raising their collective voices every single day across all sectors.

There is a tangible return on investment that includes the health, safety and productivity of children, families, and communities throughout many Dallas-area counties.

Please connect with us—we’re on Facebook, Twitter and have a regular newsletter. We’re really social!
