History of Better Addiction Care

Joe Ducey, like many others, suffered with the disease of addiction for many years. He struggled to get sober multiple times but each time failed and fell back into his old behaviors. He wanted to get clean and finally on his fourth time entering a treatment center, everything changed. This final treatment center had all the right tools and support Joe needed to sustain long-term sobriety. More than a decade later, today Joe is sober and thriving.


Joe knew that his good fortune of finding the right treatment center is lost on so many in need. He decided that he would take his knowledge and personally work to help those struggling with addiction and mental health. Joe went on to be a successful executive in the treatment industry and eventually joined with marketing and sales veteran Shane SantaCroce to start Better Addiction Care (BAC), based in Deerfield Beach, Florida.


Shane had years of experience working in marketing, hospitality and sales, and a dad who was an addict. He, however, never considered marrying the industries until a friend pushed him to give it a try. After nearly a year of research into the addiction and treatment industry, including time dedicated to better understanding his own father’s personal struggles, Shane developed a passion for the cause and believed he could make a real impact.


Shane and Joe, and the team that now surrounds them, have a mission to “make the one call count.” As Shane explains: “It sometimes takes a lifetime for someone to get the courage to ask for help…and when they do, it’s our responsibility to make that call count and to get them to the right treatment center, and get them the help they need.”


Today BAC is focused on growing to meet the needs of the thousands of people across the country struggling with addiction. The company recently launched an Outreach Program dedicated to putting feet on the ground in key markets across the country. This will ensure that the BAC Outreach Professionals are in the communities, networking with local therapists and organizations, and making connections with those searching for help. The Outreach Program will also allow BAC to better meet the needs of their patients before, during and after the detox, rehab and recovery process.


By mid 2017, BAC anticipates growing to a few hundred employees with Outreach Professionals located in 10-plus key markets around the country. At that time, Shane also expects to be networked with 12 or more treatment facilities – each of which will be screened, reviewed and personally recommended by the BAC team.


Ultimately, Shane and Joe see BAC as changing the treatment industry as it exists today!
