Acacia Clinic
Acacia saved my life. I suffered, like many of us do, from Opiate addiction. I struggled with prescription pain killers for over 3 years...finally hit rock bottom. My wife actually set the initial appointment up, and I arrived at Acacia on new years eve. Since that day, my life has changed. They immediately put me into therapy and gave me suboxone. From that day, I never looked back. I can NOT put into words the gratitude my family and I have for the wonderful group of doctors and therapists that have went above and beyond to ensure I was not alone during my recovery. I would never recommend any other place for help with addiction. We all know you have to really want to be sober, and if that sounds like you then Acacia will save your life. I rate them AAA+

American Behavioral Clinics
Excellent care, but patients should not be shouted for: practitioners should come to the waiting room.There should not be 8-9 minute waits for one's phone call to be answered.There should be Saturday hours, skipping a weekday, to accommodate those patients with multiple jobs, disabilities requiring others to drive them, and a less harried day for all concerned, and therefore, a more productive one.Water bottles are given in shops: why not in a health facility?Care should be taken that the dosage on a bottle matches real time advice by the doctors.Overall, excellent esprit de corps, but some fine tuning would be appreciated.Why are the preponderance of patients women: because Men are driving us nuts.

Samaritan Family Wellness Foundation
This place is great. I was dealing with sick and aging parents, raising 3 children, a full time job, marital stress, and a general feeling of being completely overwhelmed. I called Samaritan for help and was so impressed with the therapist I worked with. I am happy to say I am now centered and enjoying life again! The advice I received was honest, perceptive and extremely helpful. I'd recommend this place to anyone!

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
