“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 Michael Cartwright, CEO of American Addiction Centers. “As one of the nation’s leading treatment providers, we have seen firsthand how treatment can transform lives.”
Earlier this year, AAC released the results of its patient outcome studies. The studies showed that not only does treatment work to reduce substance use, but it also has significant benefits across many important areas of life, including family dynamics and mental health.
AAC is also supporting the 2018 MusiCares Concert for Recovery scheduled on May 10, 2018. The concert will also help raise funds for the nonprofit to give even more musicians access to treatment.
