Hello, my name is William Schneider and I provide counseling for anyone who feels that their alcohol or drug consumption is affecting them negatively. Utilizing a licensed recovery counselor offers individuals and families help to develop plans for reaching recovery goals and making positive changes.
I have over 13 years of experience working in non-profit, private, and medication-assisted substance abuse recovery field. I am licensed and certified through, California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP).
I specialize in working with addicts in the recovery process and with their families. Understanding the changes that are required, every step of the way, is key to learning how to reach out and support each other. I provide education about both addiction, recovery and the biochemistry of substance abuse.
I personally understand that addiction doesn’t just affect one area in a person’s life, but that it affects multiple areas. I offer a client-centered approach where we explore those areas and support the individual in tapping into their inner strengths and applying them to their recovery goals.
It is important to remember that removing substances is only a first step in making this important life change; behaviors, fears, and habits are harder to change. As a licensed addiction counselor, I will help you identify these aspects that need to be changed and the direction that will work best for your individual recovery process.
