Headquartered in the country music capital, American Addiction Centers (AAC) announced today its donation of 30 free days of inpatient treatment to 12 musicians who seek assistance through MusiCares in 2018. MusiCares, an affiliated charity of the Recording Academy™, provides resources for struggling musicians, including those battling drug and/or alcohol addiction.
While the public often hears about famous musicians who have battled addiction, the free care will go to those in the music industry who are uninsured and can’t afford treatment.
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.
