Conditions and Issues Treated

Substance Abuse + Addiction Treatment

Recovering from any type of substance abuse is a long process, but it is one of the most worthwhile and life changing events any addicted person will ever go through. This is a combination of detoxing the body, rehabilitation, and recovery. There is also therapy, aftercare, and support during the entire process.

While substance abuse can take over a person’s life, it is something that can also be overcame by professionals at SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center in Northbrook, IL

Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment at SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center

With so many people struggling with opioid addiction, opioid addiction treatment is more critical than ever before. Patients often take opioids when they face a painful injury. When someone begins taking opioids such as Vicodin or oxycodone differently than how the medications were prescribed, this points to opioid addiction.

Stopping these types of medications abruptly is not safe. That is where opioid addiction treatment at SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center in Northbrook, IL comes in. Most opioid addiction treatment facilities start with detox and move to rehabilitation services while providing medical support during the process.

Getting over an opioid addiction takes time and determination, but with the right support and resources, those struggling with opioid addiction can recover and move forward with their lives.


An underlying cause often brings about addiction. Mental disorders can lie at the center, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or anxiety disorder. As well as the cause of the addiction, a dual diagnosis by SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center helps to treat the addiction. This ensures that after treatment is complete, the patient will not fall back on old practices.

Levels of Care

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

Detox is a drug rehab process that begins before the actual drug rehab treatment. It is used to remove any residual toxins left in your body (and brain) after using drugs, and it is used with the intent to help you or your loved one complete drug rehab.

If you are addicted to opiates like heroin, methadone, or prescription painkillers, you will detox with medication. This is because the withdrawal symptoms are often more intense and uncomfortable for an opiate addict than for someone who has abused or is dependent on other drugs, like cocaine.

An intensive outpatient program is a good option for someone in Illinois with a milder or less severe addiction. An IOP may involve daily meetings at a treatment facility, along with personal counseling and peer meetings. Some IOP programs offer half-day treatment, while others offer full-day programs. SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center‘s IOP is customized per individual.

Outpatient treatment is treatment that occurs when a patient is not checked into a rehab facility. The patient may show up for therapy sessions, go through detox and engage in other therapies to help them recover. However, they will do so while they live at home in Illinois.

Outpatient therapy provided by SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center is usually recommended as a follow up to inpatient therapy. It helps patients adapt to their normal lives after treatment. In some cases, it can also be an alternative to inpatient treatment. People may choose this route if they are unable to leave their jobs, children or if they don’t have the money for inpatient treatment. However, inpatient treatment is the best way to recover from addiction.

SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center‘s Partial Hospitalization Program is a midway point between inpatient and outpatient treatment. It is for people who are still struggling with addiction but don’t need round the clock care in Northbrook. Patients may spend anywhere from 18 to 30 hours a week in a treatment program, but they will sleep at home. The duration of the program can be anywhere from one to six months.

Help with aftercare applies to the follow-up care provided after the initial recovery program offered by SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center in Northbrook, Illinois. The level of support for aftercare plays a vital role in avoiding relapse and in maintaining sobriety. Aftercare support is tailored according to the patient’s needs.

Therapies & Programs

Individual professional counseling or individual therapy refers to the one-on-one interaction between a patient and his or her counselor. Individual therapy allows for more privacy, one that group interactions can’t provide. Therefore, it becomes easier for a person to unload and become more open to his or her counselor.

Another benefit of individual therapy at SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center in Northbrook, IL is that all sessions aim to speed up a single person’s progress. It makes it easier for the counselor and the patient to deal with the central issues, which are likely the culprits of substance addiction.

Once the roots of the problems are addressed, it becomes less challenging for a recovering patient to maintain sobriety and brush off temptations.

Families are not always as supportive as they could be, but by opting for family therapy, many recovering addicts are able to understand their addiction and get the support they need to get sober. These therapy sessions at SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center in Northbrook, IL involve all members of the family who play a role in the recovering person’s daily life. They work together to overcome past issues, avoid triggers, and remain strong and supportive of each other.

In group therapy, the patient undergoes sessions with other patients dealing with similar problems under the guidance of a trained counselor. The members of the group interact with each other and talk freely about their issues. The recovery of members of the group from the problems that they face gives the patients confidence that they can also overcome their addiction.

Group therapy at SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center reduces the feeling of loneliness and improves the coping skills of the patients. Group therapy provides patients with continuous feedback from other members. The group dynamics ensure that members start having some structure and routine in their lives.

Trauma therapy zeroes in on traumatic incidents that a SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center patient in Northbrook, Illinois has encountered in the past, recent or not. It’s been widely known that trauma can make an individual resort to alcohol or other substances to mask their troubles. The goal of trauma therapy is to help the patient see beyond the trauma and move forward.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a method of individual and/or group counseling that focuses on acceptance and change. DBT can be very effective in developing coping strategies for negative emotions.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a way of addressing concerns through talking. Talking through issues can identify sources of discomfort or unhealthy thoughts. CBT is a healthy way SunCloud Health - Northbrook Treatment Center addresses some behaviors which may be bringing unintended consequences in a persons life.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is different from the traditional treatment that helps patients recover from substance abuse. Research shows that the root cause of substance abuse in many patients is the negative feelings and emotions that are associated with some past trauma. In EMDR therapy, therapists make the patients recollect such traumatic events while stimulating their vision.

The rapid eye movements reduce the patients’ negative feelings related to the trauma and promote calmness and relaxation. EMDR therapy is combined with behavioral therapies to address the root cause of the problem, which reduces the chances of relapse at a later stage.

The 12 step program is the treatment method used by Alcoholics Anonymous, but it can apply to any type of addiction. It outlines the 12 steps addicts should take on the path to recovery. Steps include admitting you have a problem and making the decision to turn your life around. A belief in a higher power and making amends to others are also part of the program.

Nutrition therapy involves providing healthy diet and improving the eating habits of the patient. Expert dieticians provide individualized meal plan, that addresses the specific nutritional deficiencies. Nutrition therapy also teaches the associated life skills such as cooking healthy food and grocery shopping. It helps to overcome the food cravings that are seen in certain addictions.

NRT, also known as nicotine replacement therapy, allows someone to get the effects of nicotine without chewing or smoking. It is often done with a patch, allowing those who want to quit relying on nicotine to better manage their cravings. As the cravings get easier to manage, the doses of nicotine get reduced until nicotine is no longer needed.
