Andrew Pierce works individually in private practice as well as being aligned with premier Naples, FL mental health and addiction provider, Counseling of SW Florida. He has developed and tested a clinical model for accelerating both the quality, and depth of change for those recovering from addictions and co-occurring disorders. His new book (6/21 publication) unpacks this innovative model intended for those who find the spiritual aspects of 12-Step programs problematic.
Additionally, he is authoring a book for clinicians on the subject in an effort to more widely and effectively combat Substance Use Disorder and its co-occurring psychological issues which, sadly, deny happiness and fulfillment to millions daily.
Andrew Pierce, MCAP
Andrew Pierce graduated with an Advanced Practice Master’s degree specializing in co-occurring disorders from the premier addiction counseling program in the world, the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies in Center City, MN. He was honored as being the second student in the school’s lengthy history to be invited to lecture to the entire patient population, graduating at the top of his class.
Andrew has thousands of hours of clinical experience helping those with addiction and co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD and codependence to get what they truly want out of life. He is also a person in long-term recovery from Substance Use Disorder who can relate to the experiences his clients are going through, which is beneficial on many levels.
He loves working with family members and those whom are in relationships with people in active addiction, or perhaps in the recovery process. Working with this population is important because ultimately, recovery and treatment is about creating the conditions for healthy relationships and human connection, which is the only place love resides.
