Your problem is a bit vague & the make & model on the car only says 2001 Honda Civic. A lack of acceleration can be a couple of things in any vehicle. It can be a sign of clogged fuel injectors...but the Civic's from the 90's to early 2000's were known for problems with stuck accelerators or rapid acceleration. Both these "defects" involved issues with the throttle plate & pads. In instances where the car seems sluggish & won't accelerate rapidly...a light oiling to the throttle & pads could be a solution; otherwise it's inevitable that you'll need slight adjustments at the mechanic.
dirty air filter dirty fuel filter egr valve stuck and needs to be cleanthrottle plate cable frayed and won't allow the plate to open up all the way, moisture in the distributor cap and other things I can think of.
It is possible that your clutch is slipping, causing the engine to rev high. Does it also seem to be lacking power, ie if you put your foot ******* the accelerator does it just rev up and not go any faster? If so, the clutch will need to be replaced. Take it to a garage and get them to road test and report to you if you are unsure.
Hope this helps,
