William Arendell, LCSW  has over 20 years experience treating substance abuse both in private practice and in residential facilities.  He is recognized as an expert in social work by the Supreme Court of Louisiana where he has testified on substance abuse.  His career began working with the homeless in soup kitchens in downtown Detroit. While he was an undergraduate, he designed treatment protocols and implemented a study in conjunction with Oakland University’s Department of Psychology using neurofeedback and group therapy to treat clients who resided in homeless shelters and suffered from addictions.  Seventy percent reported no drug use after completion of the program as verified by independent drug tests and 50% were sober after one year, with no other adjective treatment. After getting his Masters from Arizona State University in social work, Will then went to work at Bridge House, one of the largest residential treatment centers in Louisiana, where he helped to rebuild that program after Hurricane Katrina.
He now runs his own private practice in New Orleans.
