Addiction Private Practice: The Definitive Guide for Addiction Counselors and Therapists is a comprehensive business plan for addiction counselors and therapists who want to effectively and safely help clients with substance abuse problems in a private office setting.
As one of the most successful independent addiction counselors, O’Brien has shared his secrets to success in his new book with informed strategies, processes, and best practices that will help addiction counselors and therapists take their practice to the next level or refocus their current practice in serving those with substance abuse disorders.
“I wrote this guide to share my success with addiction professionals across the country. Addiction professionals can provide safe and effective help to those suffering from substance use disorders in private practice. Demand has never been higher for these services, and counselors can earn much more than they do in treatment programs,” said Michael O’Brien, CADC I, NCAC I, SAP.
The book offers readers the opportunity to learn about the important components of a successful, ethical, and safe addiction practice while providing crucial advice on how to get started with very minimal start-up capital. O’Brien’s book also provides vital information about how to effectively and ethically market your independent addiction practice.
“Michael O’Brien has not only literally written the book on achieving success in addiction private practice, but he is also living proof that it is possible. His bulletproof addiction practice model is easy to understand and execute, even for those who are not technologically savvy. Any competent counselor can use this book to achieve their desired success. He is selflessly handing his proven strategies to his future competition and propelling the profession forward! This is a huge leap forward for all addiction professionals,” said Sherrie Rager, Ph.D., CADC II, M-RAS, CCDS.
“Addiction Private Practice has been monumental in helping me start my practice. This book lays out step-by-step how to get started, maintain, and continue to thrive in private practice. By following Michael’s strategies, I was able to obtain eight clients in a matter of weeks! His knowledge and strategies work. As a substance abuse counselor, without this information and guidance, I may never have gone into private practice,” added Bryan Vasquez, CAT-C III.
