Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment

Many times our personality characteristics impact our substance use. For this reason, in addition to the DUI services we provide, we offer group counseling services that integrates mental health treatment with that for substance abuse. This enables clients to learn skills to manage mental health challenges as well as skills related to substance use modification, which can significantly enhance their success rates.

The substance abuse treatment we provide is also beneficial for individuals who have completed inpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment is very intensive, and very helpful. Following up by engaging in outpatient counseling after discharge is helpful as it allows you to have support and additional assistance when you have re-entered your life. Putting all the new skills into place is challenging, and continuing counseling greatly enhances the your progress and success. You invested a lot of time and energy into inpatient treatment, and owe it to yourself to get the best chance for success that’s available.

Early Intervention, Substance Abuse & Intensive Outpatient Treatment is held in the Sycamore office on Mondays and Thursdays from 6-9pm, in the Rochelle office on Saturdays from 9:30am-12:30pm, and in the Elgin office from 6-9pm. The first step is to call and schedule an intake appointment to get started.
