Call (833) 462-8286 and fill out a pre-intake screening form. If the potential student is incarcerated or unavailable a family member can call on his behalf. It is preferred that the potential applicant call if at all possible.


The Intake Coordinator will return the call based on the pre-intake screening and conduct the official interview.


If accepted into ATC Memphis or Nashville, a valid credit card will be required to reserve a bed. An initial payment of $750.00 on or before the day of admission ($250 non-refundable processing fee + $500 for the first month’s tuition) will be required.  Please access the welcome packet below for the financial agreement, sign and send it back along with your payment to your intake coordinator to be considered for admission.

Bloodwork is required prior to entering the program. The health screening form at the bottom of this screen must be printed and completed by a medical facility and faxed to the intake coordinator as proof bloodwork was completed. Once results are back the medical facility will then fax to the intake coordinator. In the event bloodwork is not completed prior to scheduled intake date an additional $125.00 will be required at intake for bloodwork.

Once admitted, the card will be kept on file and charged $500 per month until the student enters the Re-Entry phase and becomes gainfully employed. All beds are given on a first come, first served basis, we strongly recommend reserving a bed as soon as possible.


If the student is on probation or parole we will require written approval from the court stating such. All court dates should be taken care of prior to entering in the program. We can provide documentation regarding his acceptance into the program for any and all parties necessary.

Step 5

We are NOT a medical detox facility so to ensure the student’s safety we require that ALL students be detox prior to admission.
