BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Dec. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Addiction Centers is pleased to announce that its chemical dependency recovery hospital, Laguna Treatment Hospital, is once again getting national recognition for making Newsweek’s yearly list of America’s Best Addiction Treatment Centers. Only the top 330 inpatient/residential and long-term addiction treatment centers were selected for the prestigious award this year.

“Laguna Treatment Hospital represents the level of excellence that we strive for at American Addiction Centers,” said AAC CEO Dr. Tom Britton. “As a leading addiction treatment provider, AAC is committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care. It’s an honor to be recognized for the work we do every day to save lives.”

In partnership with Statista, Newsweek utilized data provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and consulted with thousands of addiction professionals, such as medical doctors, therapists and counselors in selecting the best treatment providers. The America’s Best Addiction Treatment Centers 2022 list highlights the nation’s top facilities based on quality of service, reputation and accreditation relative to in-state competition.

“We consider this a great honor to be featured among the best in the industry,” said Barbara Saak, Laguna Treatment Hospital CEO. “With overdoses at an all-time high, it’s important that those struggling with substance use disorders know they have a place they can trust with their healthcare.
