Ace Recovery for Men Philosophy

Rational living cognitive behavior (CBT) teaches each resident the importance of daily recovery practice within a structured setting.

Areas of Specialization

Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

I learned a lot about my addiction, and left with several tools that I can use to maintain my sobriety. The staff was very friendly, but firm. The housing accommodations were excellent and the atmosphere was very peaceful. Due to the small amount of recovering addicts on campus there was a strong sense of community and friendship. I would highly recommend that anyone who is truly seeking a sober lifestyle should come to ACE recovery to begin their journey.

ACE Recovery is a tremendous treatment program that that is both great in its educational program on the nature of addiction and how to cope with it as well as a behavioral model that empowers residents to form new healthy behaviors to replace the old unhealthy ones associated with addiction. It is a treatment program that empowers individuals and helps them find the inate tools already in them in order to recover.

How can u go in there, excited to do all this stuff. Fish, games, pool, foolsball, etc. And not be sick 90%of DA time in there not be sick??? Most of days u going to feel like ur dying... Unless yaw know something I don't know.....


This facility saved my life. The director there is not only knowledgeable in addiction, but he is also very knowledgeable in recovery. My family lived in Chicago while I was in South Carolina, and for the first time they felt safe once I got to Ace Recovery for Men. The setting is wonderful and peaceful, and there is plenty of peaceful ways to get in touch with yourself going there. I loved learning about CBT, and I loved the style of teaching about the 12 steps. If I could I would give this facility a 10/5 rating for giving me the ability to live a happy life. I can't thank God enough for the people that run this facility, and their patience to help me become myself again.

A breath of fresh air! There are tons of ways to stay active with a walking trail, kayak, and gym. The dog that stays on campus is also fun to walk during free time. My stay at Ace Recovery was much needed to give me the peace of mind and mental health essential towards recovery. The country setting was a great escape from the negative forces in my life. I was long overdue for a change and am glad I made the first step in reaching out to Ace Recovery.

Great program with helpful CBT and 12 step recovery information. Think the retreat setting was a little hot and rural for me but is well worth the price. Well on my way to a sober life.Oh, and just being for men helped me stay focused and made my wife happy.

ARM was a godsend. This was the second program attended by my nephew. He was helped mostly by the small group sessions and the fact that the residence make everyday decisions about their day to day recovery. They are in a supportive environment that holds them accountability for their decisions. When he completed the program he felt ready to start fresh...and sober.
