1. What credentials and licenses does the program’s clinical staff hold?
Credentials and licenses ensure that the person providing treatment meets nationally recognized standards for professional practice. Some of the credentials held by addiction professionals include LADC (licensed alcohol and drug counselor), LPC (licensed professional counselor), CAC (certified addictions counselor), or CCDP (certified co-occurring disorders counselor).
LA HACIENDAS RESPONSE:
Our clinical staff is comprised of the following licenses specialties: LCDC (Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor), LPC ( Licensed Professional Counselor), LMSW (Licensed Master Social Worker), LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker), and NCC (National Certified Counselor). 35% of our clinicians are licensed at a masters level.
These homes are generally a group of newly sober people living together. Sober homes and half-way houses can be a positive experience for those who need housing in early recovery, especially for those motivated for change and committed to their recovery program. La Hacienda Treatment Center strongly recommends that you fully research each home you are considering. We offer this list of questions to assist in that process so you may make an informed choice. It is important you feel comfortable with the information you receive and that you feel confident this is an environment you believe you can be successful in. Thoroughly researching a home you are considering is a good start in that direction. Give some thought to the questions and ask those questions that are relevant to your situation. Some answers may be evident based on your observations.
