Individual and group psychotherapy for co-occurring disorders
Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
A co-occurring disorder means the addict has something else going on in addition to his addiction. This may be depression disorder, anxiety disorder, PTSD, bi-polar disorder, a personality disorder (anti-social, borderline, narcissistic, obsessive compulsive personality disorder, etc.)
For clients who suffer from a co-occurring disorder, Arrowhead Lodge offers group and individual counseling by a licensed clinical social worker, a licensed professional counselor and a clinical psychologist. This means our clients receive evidence-based treatment for a wide range of disorders by competent professionals.
Why a Licensed Professional and Why is it Important to YOU?
In the state of Arizona, a licensure controls one’s scope of practice. Substance abuse counselors (LISAC and LASAC) have a limited scope of practice; however, licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) and license professional counselors (LPC) have a broad scope of practice. By having all three levels of licensure at Arrowhead Lodge, we can treat most behavioral and mental health disorders; however, we do not treat seriously mentally ill (SMI) patients or acutely mentally ill patients.
Some counselors obtain specialty certifications such as:
- CSAT – Certified Sex Addict Therapist
- CTT – Certified Trauma Therapist
- NGCC – National Gambling Counselor Certification
- CTTS – Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist
- CAMS – Certified Anger Management Specialist
- CEDS – Certified Eating Disorder Specialist
A behavioral health technician (BHT) has neither the education nor credentials to provide the clinical expertise in diagnosis and counseling for someone suffering from a mental health disorder(s). A BHT plays an important supporting role in behavioral health treatment, but a BHT does not replace the need for a licensed counselor.
At Arrowhead Lodge our licensed counselors provide individual and group counseling as well as BHT’s who support our clients in all other matters related to their recovery.
You may rest assured that your diagnosis and behavioral and mental health counseling is done by a licensed professional when you are at Arrowhead Lodge.
