Welcome to Access Counseling Group
We Fix the Hole in Your Family by
Treating Your Whole Family
At Access Counseling Group, we know addiction is a family illness and must be treated by including the family. Recovery is strongest with the right support group, and we believe your family can be the foundation of your safety net. We invest a lot of time working with your family members to find areas of strength within your family that can be leveraged to improve treatment outcomes. We also learn which behaviors and mis-information need to be improved through communication, structure and accountability to develop the plan of action that will provide and you and your family with the best possible long term outcomes for recovery. We treat you like we would want our family to be treated in our time of need.
Additional Resources for Recovery
We know this illness is cloaked in silence, secrecy and shame and it is our mission to provide you with solutions, support and help. Education and resources are important in the recovery process and it is our goal to provide you with as much support and connect you with resources that you may need. Our staff Nurse Practitioner is skilled at providing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to address the discomfort of withdrawals and cravings without jeopardizing your recovery. Additional classes and workshops are available in our Frisco office such as DWI Education classes. Our instant drug test products and educational workshops help your workplace, family or life function in a healthier way.

Nurse Practitioner, Lisa Beaver
Now Accepting New Patients
We are excited to announce we have Nurse Practitioner, Lisa Beaver, on our team! We have found that patients who are seen by our Nurse Practitioner, in combination with counseling and treatment services, have better treatment outcomes, longer periods of abstinence from alcohol and other drugs and better medication compliance. The overall improvement in individual and family functioning is also increased. Our Nurse Practitioner is accepting new patients and collaborates with referring treatment providers. Lisa is very skilled at Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) using Suboxone, Vivitrol, and other medications effective in diminishing cravings during early recovery. She treats co-occurring mental health disorders while taking care not to disrupt treatment of the patient’s substance use disorder.

Irene and her staff saw our entire family because an addicts problem is never just their own. I can honestly say were it not for Access Counseling, we would not have made it. There were so many issues to deal with- we were heartbroken and devastated , his siblings were furious and he didn’t know how to navigate the world without drugs.
Irene is intuitive, compassionate and tough and we needed all three of those things. She addressed each family member, based on their needs and she quickly won the confidence of our son. There is much he still needs to learn, but he is clean and he is stable and for this we give credit and eternal gratitude to Irene and her incredible staff.
Four years ago, chill-beat boss Medasin was anything but laid back and in control. He was struggling with his mental health, addicted to drugs, running with an aimless crowd, digging a hole and throwing his ambitions into the hazy abyss. His parents, his teachers, and his well-intentioned friends couldn’t tell him anything he’d bother to hear. Only Irene had the magic words that could make his musical soul stop and listen.
Irene was his intensive outpatient program counselor at Access Counseling Group, her rehab facility in Plano, Texas. For some reason, Irene was able to convince the would-be producer that his life was worth more than escapism. Irene helped him see a future, one where he could focus his energies into his creative passions and make something beautiful. Today, he shares a 9-track album, a soothingly subtle exploration of feelings bigger than words allow. It’s beautiful, and it’s dedicated to her, Irene. –Billboard Magazine
The counselors are rad and the staff get to know you and they care. Groups are small and you get to share a lot if you want. Staff and group members give you support and hold you accountable.
