Northwest Counseling & Wellness Center

Northwest Counseling and Wellness Center is Austin’s preeminent integrative health center specializing in drug and alcohol treatment and therapy for anxiety and depression. We provide a continuum of outpatient services and programs that integrate a variety of conventional counseling and psychotherapy with ancient eastern approaches to help you get well and stay well. Change is an inside job and you know more than you know you know. Our services help mobilize inner capacities of insight, wisdom, and function – providing truly holistic care and an individualized approach to healing.

History

Northwest Counseling & Wellness Center (NCWC) was established in 1996 in response to the rapidly growing and underserved communities of northwest Austin. Most treatment centers at that time were providing each client with very similar, western, medical model programs for alcohol and drug addiction treatment and mental health services. Meanwhile, research was saying that no single approach is appropriate for all individuals. Our opportunity from the very beginning was to provide more holistic care and creative solutions to the complex issues of alcohol and drug abuse and/or mental health disorders. Today, we offer several drug and alcohol treatment programs, therapy for anxiety and depression, psychotherapy and counseling services for a variety of concerns, and a diverse range of integrative health practices on site.

NCWC Programs

Northwest Counseling and Wellness Center is licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services(http://www.dshs.state.tx.us) as an outpatient substance abuse treatment facility for adults. NCWC has been awarded the highest level of accreditation by CARF for conformance to best practices in mental health and drug and alcohol treatment programming. We provide a variety of patient-centered, intensive treatment services for alcohol and drug abuse, therapy for depression, and therapy for anxiety that integrate western psychotherapeutic techniques, eastern and “non-talk” therapies, and the tradition of community self-help resources. In addition to our intensive treatment programs for alcohol and drug abuse and mental health, we offer a “menu” of services and can create customized treatment programs for individual clients based on their specific treatment needs.
