Nurse Practitioner, Lisa Beaver, is 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 now accepting new patients and will collaborate with referring treatment providers. Lisa is very skilled at Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) using Suboxone, Vivitrol, Camperol and other medications to assist in diminishing cravings for substances during early recovery. She treats co-occurring mental health disorders while taking care not to disrupt treatment of the patient’s substance use disorder.
Lisa is from Ohio and has been practicing in the DFW area for the past two years specializing in dual diagnosis and medication assisted treatment for addictions. She has a talent for helping patients who have been resistant to medication compliance. Lisa is known as a dedicated and accomplished nurse practitioner experienced in addiction medicine, mental health, urgent care, family and geriatric care. Lisa is recognized as a compassionate provider and an excellent listener. She posses strong verbal and written communication, with a meticulous eye for detail. In addition, Lisa is a key contributor and collaborator with multidisciplinary teams to provide exceptional health care. She collaborates with individuals, their treatment provider and family members to ensure the best possible care, leading to improved outcomes and increased quality of life.

Adult Group Member
This place is all about your child and what is best for him/her. Individual attention is amazing and I’m grateful for every minute for one on one and group. Seeing the highly educated staff really caring about your loved one’s progress is just priceless.
Mother of Adolescent Group Member
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.
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.
