The Extra Mile is a place of new beginnings for those suffering from the disease of alcoholism and addiction. Tucked away in the beautiful landscape of the Natchez Trace, our center provides a serene environment which allows our residents to focus on themselves and begin healing. Through a combination of intensive clinical therapy and 12 step immersion, a solution is given and a new model for living is developed. Our patients will graduate with a firm understanding of their disease and a method to find complete freedom from it. The families of our patients will also learn tools to create a healthy dynamic with their loved one. Our team members are not only the highest caliber professionals, but have recovered from their own battles with addiction. This is of the utmost importance to relaying this solution, as we have been where our patients are. This uniquely qualifies us to treat this disease! Our goal is to send our people out into the communities, not only to stay sober themselves, but to be able to provide these tools to others. Our graduates will truly know what it means to go The Extra Mile for their recovery!

- Residential Treatment
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
- Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

How Our Helpline Works
For those seeking addiction treatment for themselves or a loved one, the Recovery.org helpline is a private and convenient solution.
Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by American Addiction Centers (AAC).
We are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options. Our representatives work solely for AAC and will discuss whether an AAC facility may be an option for you.
Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Recovery.org nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose.
