Nancy Hilsenrath, treatment placement specialist at Acadia healthcare.

Hi, my name is Nancy Hilsenrath and I'm a treatment placement specialist with Acadia healthcare. Acadia healthcare is the largest behavioral health organization in the world. My role is to help providers, family members, or loved ones find the best residential treatment program that suits their individual needs.I work with adolescents and adults with behavioral health concerns. I work with concerns ranging from primary mental health issues, substance use disorder, eating disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain.It is my goal to help you find a viable option in a smooth efficient manner during challenging times. This is also a free service.Chief Medical Officer of Acadia Healthcare, Michael Genovese, MD, JD:"If the treatment placement specialists weren't around, things would be a lot different. There are a lot of people out there who promote certain programs who say they do the same thing as treatment placement specialists, but they don't. Treatment placement specialists really go out of their way to place patients in the absolute proper setting for whatever they need. They know the treatment landscape better than anyone else. They understand clinical, they understand medical, they understand disease state. They understand human beings. They really care about the people that they're trying to help. They're a big part of our treatment team. I couldn't do my job if it wasn't for the treatment placement specialists at Acadia Healthcare."For more info. on Nancy Hilsenrath, LCSW, CASAC, SAP: #myaddictiontherapist #lcsw #therapist #therapy #counseling #counselor #counselors #socialworker #crisiscounselor #licensedclinicalsocialworker #licensedtherapists #mentalhealth #mentalhealthissues #psychologist #psychotherapist #psychotherapy #behavioralhealth #acadia #addiction #addictioncounseling #addictionrecovery #addictionspecialists #addictiontherapist #addictiontherapists #addictiontreatment #addictions #addicted #drugfree #substanceabuse

3 COUNSELING LOCATIONS: West Hempstead, NY, Douglaston, NY, Hewlett, NY

depression counseling virtual
anxiety therapy
Counseling for Depression

One of the worst things about depression is the sense of isolation & despair it can bring. If you’re suffering from depression, it’s important to know that you aren’t alone & that there’s a way out of it. Counseling is a proven way of dealing with & ultimately overcoming depression.

Anxiety Counseling

Attempting to cope with anxiety alone can contribute to feelings of loneliness, hopelessness and despair. Discussing your fears in a safe, non-judgmental environment can be key to reclaiming control over negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

alcohol addiction counseling
Alcohol Addiction Counseling

Despite the social acceptance of alcohol, misuse has devastating effects. Some 88,000 people die from alcohol related causes in the U.S. each year. Alcoholism can affect nearly every organ in the body including the brain, heart, immune system and liver.

gambling addiction
Counseling for Gambling Addiction

Gambling addiction is often combined with other disorders, such as substance abuse, depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. Therefore, professional help for gambling disorders often focuses not just on the gambling behavior but the root causes of it.

opioid addiction
Help & Treatment for Opioid Addiction

We’re in the midst of an opioid epidemic. If someone uses opioids for a while, they develop physical dependence & tolerance. Addiction occurs when opioid use becomes compulsive & self destructive, especially when not using the drug for pain relief.

marijuana addiction
Marijuana Addiction Therapy

Most people think pot doesn’t yield addiction, but when one uses regularly and attempts to stop, irritability/depression/insomnia may occur. It may not be intense, but in order not to be irritable, the person uses again. This becomes a vicious cycle.

gaming addiction
Gaming Addiction Counseling

Many companies employ psychologists to keep players completely immersed. Addicts get “hooked” on achievements and milestones, leading them to play for hours without realizing the amount of time that has passed.

nicotine addiction counselor NY
Nicotine Addiction Help

Many nicotine users develop behavioral patterns and triggers that cause certain situations to become closely associated with smoking. (Certain social situations, times of high stress, etc.) By becoming aware of these triggers, you can take control of them.

heroin addiction counselor
Addiction to Heroin

Whether behavioral therapy to provide coping mechanisms needed to avoid relapse in difficult situations, to family therapy to rebuild the support needed to remain drug-free, Nancy can tailor treatment to suit the specific needs of each individual addict.
