ATLANTA, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RiverMend Health, a premier provider of scientifically-driven behavioral health services for those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction, has announced the launch of a new Christian addiction treatment center in Atlanta.
Atlanta Addiction Recovery Center (AARC) provides a spiritually nourishing environment with the highest level of medical, clinical and psychiatric care for adults struggling with addiction and dual disorders such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress. This treatment process creates a lasting foundation for recovery, while enabling patients to draw strength from their Christian faith.
"AARC is grounded in evidence-based methodology, yet enriched with the Christian spiritual guidance needed for lifelong recovery," said Stacy Seikel, MD, Medical Director for Atlanta Addiction Recovery Center.
Dr. Seikel, who is board-certified in anesthesiology and addiction medicine, is renowned for her work as an advocate for families struggling with addiction and her expertise in medication-assisted treatment. AARC's multidisciplinary team includes nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed therapists and counselors experienced in incorporating Christian principles into addiction and dual disorders treatment.
Patients at Atlanta Addiction Recovery Center receive a comprehensive assessment of addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. Levels of care include detoxification, an intensive outpatient program, outpatient services and partial hospitalization, a highly structured full day treatment program.
Prayer, worship and a Biblical interpretation of the 12-steps are woven into therapeutic activities, as are holistic therapies such as yoga, meditation and art to help patients develop new tools to sustain sobriety. While AARC is based on Christian values of acceptance, compassion, forgiveness and hope, the Center welcomes all denominations and faiths.
"We believe in the transformative power of faith to help patients find a renewed sense of purpose and inspiration for lifelong sobriety," said Ashley Buffington, MS, LPC, AARC's Lead Counselor. "By listening to God's word, our program helps individuals undergo an inner transformation that strengthens them in facing life's challenges."
AARC is located at 1640 Powers Ferry Road, S.E. in Marietta, Georgia.
The Center was launched by the same team that founded RiverMend Health Center of Atlanta, which provides treatment for addiction and dual disorders using a neuroscience-driven care model featuring medical best practices and holistic approaches.
