Welcome

UAB Beacon Addiction Treatment CenterFor more than 25 years, Beacon Addiction Treatment Center has served the people of Birmingham, Jefferson County and surrounding counties with professional outpatient substance abuse treatment.  We offer a variety of treatment components in the context of a 12-step environment and the understanding that addiction is a disease.  We provide treatment for adults and adolescents.

Our mission is to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by alcohol and other drug use through treatment and education. We see each client as an individual and we strive to provide substance abuse treatment that meets individual needs. It is our intent to assist clients in learning to make healthier choices and to function more effectively in their personal lives and in the community. 

Our clinical staff is comprised of experienced, professionally licensed counselors, social workers, marriage & family therapists and case managers. Each of these professionals has additional specific training in working with persons with substance-related problems. The program is certified by and contracts with the State of Alabama’s Department of Mental Health, Substance Abuse Division. The curricula used in our programs are evidenced-based–they have been clinically proven to benefit clients.

Outpatient groups are offered in the mornings and in the evenings to make it possible for clients to continue work or school.  In addition to group work, we also offer individual counseling.  Also, case managers are available to assist with problems such as access to health care and housing issues.

In an effort to meet the varied needs of clients who come to us for treatment, our counselors incorporate experiential activities in their groups to make the program more meaningful. Some groups are gender-specific—we have a program just for women. And so that more people will have access to the treatment they need, we provide child care and transportation assistance.
