Residential treatment is an effective solution for individuals dealing with moderate to severe substance use issues. Inpatient treatment can span anywhere from 30-90+ days. Learn more about our inpatient drug rehab in Illinois!

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), or “day treatment programs,” are an ideal match for individuals unable to commit to an inpatient program, but still require a high level of care.

Our IOP is a more intensive form of care than our standard outpatient program. We recommend intensive outpatient programs for clients with moderate addiction/mental health issues.

At our Chicago-based drug rehab center, clients in our outpatient program attend counseling sessions 2-3 times a week, with each session lasting for up to two hours.

The main objective of our structured sober living program in Illinois is to reintroduce structure into the lives of individuals or continue their recovery journey.
