Wellington Counseling Marks National Recovery Month

In recognition of September being National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, Wellington Counseling & Associates, a behavioral health and addiction treatment facility, recently hosted a resource awareness exhibit at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

WCA also has expanded services and staff since its 2005 inception. With offices in the original Wellington Mall, the company is led by CEO and Founder Cassandra Sierra, a licensed mental health counselor and certified addiction professional.

It now has a 50-person staff of professionals, including physicians providing medical assessments, patient management and psychiatry, as well as experienced therapists providing a wide range of outpatient mental health, addiction counseling and recovery services in individual and group settings.

Wellington Counseling & Associates also provides residential accommodations in various facilities for clients preparing to return to independent living, and short-term housing for independent living.

The latter arrangement enables clients to easily access vocational counseling, job coaching, wellness services, individual or group counseling, and relapse prevention sessions as they return to productive and drug-free lives.

The company holds Florida Department of Children and Families licensure to provide a wide range of mental and behavioral health treatment services for adults and adolescents.

They include residential treatment; partial hospitalization, with or without community housing; outpatient programs; drug screening via an in-house laboratory supervised by a board-certified toxicologist on staff; and domestic violence and anger management classes.

WCA has also embarked on efforts to meet standards arising from the healthcare reform movement, which include achieving Joint Commission accreditation and adoption of an industry-standard database, “Partners for Change Outcome Management System,” which has documented WCA’s success rates against national benchmarks.
