The AAC is about to practice what they preach. They are currently suing the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP), and if they have learned anything from what they have taught others, they need to be patient. This will not be solved overnight and it will not be fixed right away.
However, it is necessary in order for them to move ahead, stay in business, and keep helping people, which is what they do better than any other treatment center out there. The reason for the lawsuit against the NAATP, according to an online article, is for “engaging in anti-competitive and defamatory practices.”
While the AAC does not have time for this, as their main focus is always on helping people recover from addiction, they realize it’s just another hurdle to overcome. Whenever anyone is in recovery, they always tell him or her to take it “one day at a time.” That is what is happening here when it comes to the NAATP and this lawsuit.
They have been blocked from advertising, which has cost them money and it has prevented people from being able to check into one of their treatment centers. That is what bothers the AAC the most: the fact it has prevented someone from getting the help they need in their life.
The fact that someone would do that, to them, is just something they can’t wrap their head around. Why would anyone want to stop someone from checking themselves into a treatment center and getting the proper help? It’s just downright cruel and mean spirited.
That is what they are dealing with at the moment because of the NAATP. They are going for the throat in this situation, and they are showing no mercy and no surrender. The AAC has to keep doing things the right way and wait for it all to play out in court.

When that time comes, they can move forward, advertise, and help as many people as possible. For the AAC, they don’t want a single person to go without help. If someone needs it and is ready to enter a treatment center, they want to be the one they go to because they are the most experienced one out there. Veterans even go there for help after coming home from the war.
They also employ veterans at some of their treatment centers to help out the other veterans. This is a good company run by good people.
They know they will overcome this, and it will be something they can put in their rear view mirror before too long. As with anything in life, it is a learning experience on how to handle adversity with class and dignity, which they have done throughout this entire process.
