Lara Okoloko, LICSW is a clinical social worker in private practice in Seattle, Washington, specializing in treating the family members of people with substance use disorders. Working mostly with parents of young adults with addictions and mental health struggles, she recognizes the need for more than psycho-education and advice about detaching. Using evidenced based practices, Lara has created an empowering family counseling program for people living with a loved one with an addiction, helping people to lead change and healing in their families.
Outside of her private practice, she is active in the Washington State Society for Clinical Social Work as a legislative committee member and a mentor for new social workers, and serves as a practicum instructor at the University of Washington's School of Social Work. In addition, Lara is a passionate advocate for the improvement and modernization of the field of addiction treatment, including the integration of mental health and substance use disorder treatment and the use of evidence based practices. Lara created an Addiction Training Initiative which provides training workshops for mental health clinicians to expand their ability to identify and treat substance use disorders in their own practice.

How Our Helpline Works

Calls to any general helpline (non-facility specific 1-8XX numbers) for your visit will be answered by American Addiction Centers (AAC).
We are standing by 24/7 to discuss your treatment options. Our representatives work solely for AAC and will discuss whether an AAC facility may be an option for you.
Our helpline is offered at no cost to you and with no obligation to enter into treatment. Neither Rehabs.com nor AAC receives any commission or other fee that is dependent upon which treatment provider a visitor may ultimately choose.
