Addictions counseling in Scottsdale can empower you with the skills to manage without drugs and alcohol.
Addictions counseling addresses behavior patterns that coincide with substance abuse and so it is vital for the substance abuse counselor to be familiar with the addictive process and the impact of the particular addiction, not only upon the client but also upon the family and upon the community.
Substance use disorders and the behavioral addictions that go with it, can actually mimic a variety of other psychological disorders. This makes it especially important for the addictions counselor to be able to recognize and identify what is going on in conjunction with the addiction(s).
Chemical dependency can occur at any stage of life. This means that this specialty Scottsdale Arizona counseling is appropriate for children, adolescents and adults who are addicted (or may be affected by another individual’s addiction). Our Arizona counseling clients benefit from a multi-disciplinary treatment approach that includes different support options.
For some the Twelve Step Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is perfect, while others might be more comfortable with a more secular discipline such as Rational Recovery (RR). Diebold Behavioral Counseling, i.e. D.J. Diebold, provides guidance and direct instruction on self-recovery from addiction, alcohol and other drugs through planned, permanent abstinence as part of a total continued care program.
Our Arizona counseling also offers Arizona dwi and Arizona dui defense referral services. In fact, the addictions referral team includes a renowned DUI attorney, a blood analysis expert and D.J. Diebold, as the behavioral health therapist. If you have received a court mandated addictions counseling order, we can help.
Once you have established a therapeutic relationship with Diebold Behavioral Counseling/D.J. Diebold, the court will usually allow you to continue which will satisfy your court mandated addictions counseling.
Addictions counseling explores the underlying cause that manifests as the need to drink or use drugs. Inappropriate behaviors of drinking alcohol excessively, or using substances such as drugs (opiates or methamphetamine), will be eventually replaced with healthy coping skills, such as open, direct, honest communication.
Through our Scottsdale counseling services, D.J. Diebold can help you locate and revisit the sources of past traumatic experiences, eventually resolving these feelings and desensitizing you to those issues. When properly done, the client feels a sense of harmony and balance, known as homeostasis.
This is in contrast to court referrals, which consist of group counseling. Our addictions counseling for Arizona DWI or a Arizona DUI defense is strictly one-on-one. But what also makes Diebold Behavioral Counseling/D.J. Diebold different is that our referral team includes a locally well respected DUI attorney. Our DUI attorney charges reasonable fees, returns phone calls promptly and has an outstanding relationship with the court and the bar association.
Another member of D.J.’s referral team is a blood analysis expert who will ensure that local and Department of Public Safety (DPS) labs follow all recognized scientific procedures for testing and blood analysis. Any signs of contaminated blood (which occur often) could result in a “Not Guilty” verdict from a jury.

It literally took an Act of God to get me to counseling. I was really scared and didn’t really trust that any counselor could help. I’m so glad I made myself seek help. It’s made a world of difference.- Charlie F.
I’ve thought about calling you almost every month I’ve picked up a chip. I haven’t had a drink since the night before I first came to see you…I remember sitting there with nothing but defeat and telling you I had no faith that it would be different “this time.” You told me it already was– that it was written all over my face…I hope you are well and thank you again for the boost and redirect you gave me.- D.M.
I had an issue with painkillers (opiates). What started as a lower back injury from working out turned into an addiction to vicodin and percocet..I’m proud to say, after months of counseling with DJ I am clean and sober and love my life again… If you need help with addiction, or are scared to talk with your family and friends, I strongly suggest you contact Diebold Behavioral Counseling. DJ Rocks!!!- Beth K.
Finally after seeing multiple counselors and at the end of my rope, I met someone who was able to get through to me. After a lifetime of off and on alcohol abuse and multiple DUIs, DJ helped me get my life back, emotionally, spiritually and physically as well as my personal and professional life and relationships. In my opinion, DJ is a true lifesaver!- Patrick P.
