From Dr. Price: I believe in utilizing evidence-based psychiatric interventions to help people make positive changes in their lives. I will have an honest and open conversation with you about the possible benefits, risks, and side effects of the treatments we consider. I take my oath to do no harm seriously. I feel strongly that engendering or perpetuating addiction for profit is wrong, and I avoid habit-forming drugs in my practice.
When most people think of “trauma”, they think of shocking external events, such as a debilitating car accident, a rape, a house fire, being robbed at gunpoint. While all those “big T(rauma) events” certainly would elicit some dysfunctional or distressing symptoms within the majority of us, that is not all that mental health professionals qualify as trauma. In fact, in the mental health field, trauma is not understood as any external events at all, but rather as this:
“Trauma is the individual, subjective response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences.”
The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
Distance or telemental health, also referred to as online therapy, has gained in popularity in recent years. It’s a great option for patients who may not be able to reach our Benton or North Little Rock office for regular appointments. It gives a greater number of people access to the counseling and therapy services they need. If you’re interested in learning more about the telemental health services available at Arkansas Counseling & Wellness, keep reading and please don’t hesitate to call our team. We’ll be happy to answer your questions and tell you more about our treatment options.
For kids from the ages of three to eleven, we may recommend therapy that utilizes play. This form of counseling gives your child the safety of play to express his or her emotions. Before kids have the necessary vocabulary to discuss big ideas, play therapy can offer a great solution to allow us into the child’s thought process and potential therapy needs. If you want to learn more about play therapy at Arkansas Counseling & Wellness, read the information on this page. You can also call to schedule an appointment with us in our North Little Rock office.
Substance Use Disorder treatment at Arkansas Counseling & Wellness is intended to help addicted individuals stop compulsive drug seeking and use. Treatment can occur in a variety of settings, take many different forms, and last for different lengths of time. Because drug addiction is typically a chronic disorder characterized by occasional relapses, a short term, one-time treatment is usually not sufficient. For many, treatment is a long-term process that involves multiple interventions and regular monitoring. If you are struggling with substance use or behavioral addictions, our team can help you in our office located in Benton, Conway, North Little Rock, and our newest location in Springdale. Contact us today to learn more or schedule an appointment.

If you’re interested in learning more about couples and family therapy, read this page and call to find out more or schedule an appointment with the Arkansas Counseling & Wellness team in North Little Rock or Benton.
