Who ever wrote the last review really needs to see a shrink, because I have been in treatment for 15 years, and Dr and Vicki Adelmand are not all about the money. Many clincs and their staff treat you like only a dollar sign or just a druggie. The staff at Add Life treat you as if you are a member of thier family, you can talk them day or night. The staff here is warm and inviting not just from the time you walk in the door but every day there after as well. They are all very professional, and deserve rewards for their kindness and warmth. Dr and Vicki Adelman deserve awards for being the most giving professional in the medical community I have every met. Hugs and kisses to all of you.

Not trustworthy. Really big in the Christian wack-job community, but not well respected in the real mental health and counseling community. More about taking money from you than helping. Just stay away and find a more reputable service.

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.
