From what you see on television and the movies, you might think there’s only one type of person who struggles with substance use disorders. Nothing could be further from the truth about our clients.
Substance abuse is an equal opportunity destroyer, affecting men and women, young and old, — people of all backgrounds. There is no “typical” client, other than seeking supportive, compassionate, and dignified care for their addictions. Our focus is on their individual needs.
At Northern Illinois Recovery Center, we work with each person on their terms to deliver the best in outpatient treatment services for addictions of all types.
Our Clients are Everything to Us
We consider ourselves a no-nonsense treatment center focusing on the basics and using proven treatment approaches to help you through your problems with addiction. We put the client first in everything we do. That starts with helping ease the social stigma of addiction and debunking some of the biggest myths about substance abuse.
Some might believe our clients are accepting substance abuse as a choice. This is false. Substance abuse is a disease like any other. It involves both psychological and physiological reactions. Substance abuse triggers changes in the brain that make it impossible for individuals to resist the cravings to use.
Some might see people with substance abuse as completely broken down and dysfunctional — as they have lost total control of their lives. This is also untrue. Many who suffer from substance abuse maintain their jobs and continue their obligations as parents. Just because someone shows no signs of addiction does not mean they aren’t struggling. They are worthy of our respect, and at Northern Illinois Recovery Center, we deliver the care they need to improve their lives.
