AllDrugRehabs.com understands how confusing finding the right substance abuse treatment center can be. There are so many to choose from, and all have different treatment philosophies, programs and services. One of the most important factors to look at when comparing treatment centers is their clinical staff.
It goes without saying that any clinician working in a substance abuse rehab center should have an extensive background in treating alcoholism, drug addiction, and dual diagnosis. Some of the credentials that should accompany this background include:
Certified Addiction Professional (C.A.P.): This person has graduated from an addiction program and has accumulated a number of hours being trained in the treatment of addiction and accompanying addictive disorders.
Masters in Social Work (M.S.W.): A clinician with an M.S.W. is trained to focus on the various mental health issues the patient brings into the substance abuse treatment center.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (L.C.S.W.): This person is a licensed social worker and specializes in the treatment of mental health, family, and personal issues.
Psychologist (Ph.D.): A psychologist is one step above an L.C.S.W. and is better trained in diagnosing psychiatric disorders.
