“I LOVE what I do! I get the amazing opportunity to help families heal from the devastating effects of substance use disorders.

And I get to work with the BEST team who truly love and appreciate each other and their role in helping the families we serve”

The recovery specialists at Access Counseling Group are supervised and inspired by our CEO, Irene Little. Irene’s degrees, credentials, and certifications speak volume as clear evidence to her drive and pursuit in following her passion to constantly learn more about the nature of addiction, as well as successful treatment protocols that can result in a healthier quality of life for each of her patients. As a result of her pursuit of excellence in her field, Irene is widely regarded one of the most uniquely trained and finest clinicians in the country. In addition, she frequently is asked to speak on her clinical experience and is viewed as a thought leader by hundreds of certified and licensed professionals.
