Our Alcohol & Drug Addiction Rehab Services in Chicago

At our Chicago Independence center, our services focus on a comprehensive approach to care. We aim to address the social, emotional and physical aspects of addiction to improve your chance of a successful recovery. Our patients receive services like:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: Through cognitive behavioral therapy, patients will work on changing their thinking, beliefs and values to overcome addiction and reduce the chances of relapse. 
  • Dialectical behavior therapy: The first step of dialectical behavior therapy is usually identifying and modifying behaviors, thoughts and emotions contributing to drug or alcohol misuse. Overall, the main goal throughout the seven components is emotional regulation. 
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that encourages patients to be mindful, accept realities, choose a direction in life and then take action.
  • Motivational interviewing: All patients can benefit from motivational interviewing (MI). During these therapy sessions, patients will be asked to focus on the positives of sobriety and their future. 
  • Mindfulness-Based Sobriety: Mindfulness-based sobriety focuses on the present, encouraging patients to focus and progress toward sobriety through addiction treatment programs.
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment: For patients who need additional help managing withdrawal symptoms, we offer Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to help with sobriety and prevent relapse. 
  • Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment: Designed for patients dealing with substance misuse and a mental condition, our co-occurring disorders treatment combines various therapies to treat both disorders at the same time.
  • 12-Step Facilitation: The evidence-based 12-Step Facilitation (TSF) model helps reduce substance use by involving patients in a 12-step fellowship.
  • Individual, group and family counseling: Our Chicago Independence Boulevard treatment center lets patients choose from individual, group or family counseling. No matter if you desire support from peers or want to encourage your family to work toward a common goal, our staff will create a treatment plan meeting your needs.
  • Trauma therapy: As part of our trauma therapy, we get our patients involved in a Seeking Safety program. For those suffering from an addiction, we can incorporate Dual Diagnosis Enhanced Treatment. 

During your first appointment, we will conduct an intake to determine your drug addiction treatment needs. We will then use this discussion to create a personalized treatment plan that includes the right services for your symptoms.

Program Models at Our Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center in Chicago

As one of our patients, you can participate in a few different program models:

  • Outpatient: During outpatient treatment, you visit our clinic near Independence for services on a regular basis. You may need an outpatient program if you want to keep attending work or school.
