" 6 months after my last session I'm doing great and use the skills
has taught me daily. DO'S....1. Trust him. Do some" of the exercises seem hokey? Yes. Do they work? Absolutely. So again, trust him. don't. ...1. Think you know better, if you did you wouldn't have contacted him. 2. Blow off the exercises. If you put serious effort into this you'll see serious results.

"After the first appointment I started feeling more in control.
taught me some techniques for stress relief and relaxation, and also some" great ways to
cravings. He taught me its best to take things one step at a time, instead of all at once. I started cutting back on my drinking little by little and I didn't get a huge withdrawal like before. After I had stopped completely,
kept working with me to keep up the progress. As of today, I am one month sober, and looking forward to continuing my progress.

Addiction Counseling

Addiction is a chronic disease that involves biochemical reward by using a substance or behavior to reach a pleasant or pleasurable state of mind or feeling. In many cases, addicts need professional help to stop.

Food addictions create overpowering cravings that may lead some to compulsively overeat certain foods well past the point of satisfying hunger, despite potentially dramatic long-term health consequences, like diabetes, heart attack and stroke. (Photo by Brandon Smith)

I would not send my worse enemy to

they get your child may it be in there, then all they do is start collecting from your Insurance as much as they can get.....they are a fraud and could care less about nothing, but the money. They DO NOT have clinical license therapy on site (like they say), false advertisement. They DO NOT have a doctor on site (like they say), false advertisement. The staff is unprofessional and rude, in our opinion and speaking with other family's

Bethesda Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
took my $2700 check for intervention services and cashed it immediately the next day. He claimed he had expertise with the criminal system and getting help within the jail premises for my family member. He preyed on my vulnerability. He failed to obtain an internal visit with my family member at the jail, and placed blame on me that I did not get the release signed, when in fact it was jail policy not to allow him access due to his lack of credentials. He failed to build rapport with my family member as he had promised. He was very smooth and recited his popularity with a radio program called "The Next Step" hosted out of
Bethesda Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
Prairie, MN. He also claimed to work with Amethyst Counseling out of New
Bethesda Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
and Hazelden out of Center City. He appears very intelligent and empathetic, and warned me of hiring someone without the proper credentials. I even called a past office he worked at and the receptionist whole heartedly referred him. I do not know what kind of referral arrangements were between the two parties.
I tried to cancel the contract and get back a pro-rated amount as stated in his contract, but he said he had used all the money up with the emails he sent me and the one visit he had made to the jail through the public monitor screen. Yes, we had many emails back and forth. All of them were inquiring on his so-called expertise and in-side clout with treatment facilities in Minnesota, and the rest were his complaints on how he was having difficulty getting information from jail staff. It was an emotional nightmare. I needed a short window of 4 weeks for intervention, and I didn't hear from him for over 2 weeks. He offered "after care" follow-up phone calls but did not make the appropriate connections in the first place. My loved one relapsed shortly after release from jail, and had absolutely no rapport with

He also had a phone number out of

Springs, Florida: 239-776-8311. I do not know if it is functional. His name is not on his web site anymore. The website is

It went well. You are not alone in your recovery process. The author is able to communicate with you one on one, as if you are the only person who is or has gone through years of addiction. I would recommend reading and re-reading this book many times.

He takes as much time as you need. He shares his
Bethesda Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
about spiritual approaches, or suggested reading materials to help with the issues I brought up. He has absolutely found the right combination of medications for me. That is just very life affirming, and it allows me to embrace life. He is very insightful. He listens very carefully as opposed to nuisances of what I am saying. He asks questions to really pinpoint whatever is happening. He is highly in demand, so it is hard to get in to see him. Even though, you cannot get immediate appointment, he is so worth waiting for.

I would take my children there if I had children. He also does addiction treatment and stuff like that. There is a pediatric office and there is another little office for his other practice. He is an amazing doctor. He is really good. I will continue to see him.

He has twenty years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and couples. He listens very well and also incorporates visual elements such as graphs and charts into the therapy. He draws on his white board a lot to explain things which really works for me. He mostly remembers what I spoke to him during my last visit. His office environment is nice but the building is a little

and is not big and professional. His office is however appropriate for him since he works alone.

Bird is no exception. For the past 6 years, I have been seeing
Bethesda Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
on a weekly basis to assist in dealing with depression, anxiety, OCD, Adult ADHD, and general relationship issues. He has been instrumental in assisting me to facilitate the necessary changes in my behavior to deepen and strengthen my personal/professional relationships, increasing my self confidence, parenting challenges, and seeking the assistance of a Psychiatrist for the administration and management of medications for anxiety and depression. I would highly recommend
