Many people who struggle with opioid addiction need to attend specific programs like methadone , Suboxone or Vivitrol clinics.

These types of programs will provide the patient with legal, prescription medications that can help them overcome their cravings for illegal opioids like heroin or fentanyl .

Levels of Care

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

An addict may have to go through alcohol or drug withdrawal. While detox may be uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. Detoxification allows the addict to rid the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol and gives the addict a clean slate for their recovery. In an inpatient or outpatient setting, detox can be managed medically.

Individuals who are suffering from severe addiction or have a high risk for dangerous health concerns are often recommended to receive inpatient treatment.

Choosing to enter an inpatient treatment program is beneficial for people who are suffering from severe addiction, or who have a high risk for dangerous health concerns.

Inpatient treatment is beneficial for:

  • People who have a history of severe withdrawal.
  • People who have attempted to overcome addiction on their own without success.
  • People who have a history of relapse, or have recently relapsed.
  • People at risk for drug overdose or withdrawal-related complications.
  • People with medical conditions that are worsened by drug or alcohol use.

Outpatient treatment programs provide drug and alcohol addiction treatment through individual sessions with a counselor, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and other activities to help individuals gain sober living skills. Most programs are designed for those individuals who have completed a medically supervised detoxification program and provide opportunities for clients to begin the process of early recovery.

Outpatient programs also offer a level of medical support as needed and psychological backing through therapy. Clients are encouraged to live at home, though there may be some flexibility regarding this requirement based on the circumstances and needs of each patient.

Outpatient treatment is perhaps the most common type of dual diagnosis program available. It does not pose a significant financial burden on patients. However, it is essential to note that outpatient treatment does not provide the support and supervision given in residential programs. Some addicts may need this level of support to maintain their sobriety.

Therapies & Programs

Therapy sessions focused on the individual addict can provide much-needed guidance as they work toward overcoming their addiction. These types of sessions typically involve guidance from a therapist, who will help addicts identify and process their feelings and cravings.

During these sessions, addicts may develop plans for coping with the triggers that typically lead to relapse and learn how to avoid those triggers during their recovery process.

If you are looking for drug recovery, couples therapy can be a great option. This type of therapy can help rebuild trust and joy in relationships that may have been damaged by addiction. It can also help reduce the dysfunctional behavior in a relationship that may trigger addiction. A patient’s partner will be involved in the process. They can also benefit from therapy, especially if they are trying to live with an addict.

The main goal of family therapy for drug addiction is to create an environment where communication can occur without judgment, hostility, or blame that often occurs within a family.

Family therapy is a type of group problem-solving that aims to improve communication and relationships between the patient, their family, and sometimes friends. The therapist is with the family as they learn to communicate with each other differently, especially with the addict when s/he is using.

  • Reduces feelings of isolation
  • Immediate access to social support in the form of fellow addicts in recovery
  • Lowers risk of relapse
  • Increases rate of sobriety
  • Builds coping skills that can be applied to everyday life

Trauma Therapy is a form of therapy that involves working with a patient to help them process and understand the past trauma(s) in their life. The idea behind it is that while some people can experience traumatic events and not have lasting psychiatric symptoms, many others will. In these cases, memories of the event get hidden from consciousness but continue to influence how the person processes and copes with things in their life. They may avoid situations that resemble what happened or become suddenly angry or irritated to a situation that reminds them of a past event.

With the help of a therapist, people can go back over memories and experiences. This helps them understand why they are having problems coping with certain situations and how they can change how they think and react to things. This therapy is typically done using techniques such as visualization, discussion, and writing down thoughts and feelings.

Trauma therapists will work with clients to help them understand their past and present relationships. Many times, patients may believe that something is inherently wrong with them or that they are unworthy of love. A therapist aims to correct these negative feelings and behaviors by helping the person realize that their actions do not reflect who they truly are.

One of the main goals of trauma therapy is to help clients express their emotions and talk about what they are feeling. This benefits both to increase awareness of how certain events have impacted them in the past and enables patients to realize that they can make changes in their lives.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that helps addicts balance their thoughts and emotions to change their behavior. It was designed for those vulnerable to self-harm and suicidal thoughts and aims to help patients understand the connection between their feelings, emotions, and behaviors. It is effective for those whose addictions and behaviors stem from severe mental health issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used by drug treatment centers to help addicts comprehend the causes of their substance abuse and the consequences that follow. Through CBT, clients learn to recognize and avoid high-risk situations and cope with challenging situations when they arise.

CBT treatment often includes a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, lectures, and other activities. The treatment’s goal is to help addicts gain self-control and maintain abstinence from drugs and alcohol over the long term so that an addict can get sober and lead a more productive life.

CBT is particularly effective in helping people overcome their drug problems, especially people whose drug abuse is motivated by self-defeating beliefs and emotions.

Those struggling with addiction in Illinois can benefit from learning certain life skills. It is not as simple as quitting drinking or taking drugs and thinking that the hard part is over. Being sober means living a whole new way of life. Many recovering addicts have found that they need to develop talents like time management, organization, communication skills, socialization skills, and self-esteem to make their life in sobriety work.

Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction.

An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.
