    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.

    Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at ABRAXAS Youth and Family Services - Southwood Interventions in Chicago.

    Opioid addiction treatment facilities like ABRAXAS Youth and Family Services - Southwood Interventions support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids. People often abuse prescription opioids to get high instead of adhering to a medical provider’s directions. Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.

    Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon. In some instances, therapies can be done at home.

    Addiction is often caused by an underlying issue. Mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorder could lie at the root. A dual diagnosis by ABRAXAS Youth and Family Services - Southwood Interventions aims to treat the addiction as well as the cause of the addiction. This ensures the patient will not fall back on old ways after treatment is complete.

    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Detox is the stage of recovery where the drugs or alcohol are fully removed from your body. As you stop using, your body metabolizes the last dose or drink and starts sending triggers to your brain to get more. These cues lead to cravings. If additional substances are not obtained you begin to go through withdrawal. Your body begins to reset chemical pathways and other metabolic processes begin which can be extremely uncomfortable.

    There are two different ways to detox, with medications and without. Depending on your level of addiction and what you are using, you may need medical supervision. For many drugs and alcohol, the acute phase of detox can be completed in a number of days. Cravings and certain longer-term withdrawal symptoms may remain for longer as your body completely rids itself of the drug and relearns how to function without it.

    Inpatient rehab means living at the Chicago, IL facility while all aspects of an addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. This helps limit the distractions and increase the focus on recovery. Typical inpatient rehab stays are approximately one month long.

Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
