Addiction is a complex disease making treatment a challenge no matter who you are or where you seek out support. However, people can heal from addiction with the right support and make living with a chronic disease manageable. But first, it’s necessary to explore the Illinois addiction treatment options available to you or a loved one. At Northern Illinois Recovery Center, we believe in educating individuals about their options to make the most informed choice for themselves.
Each individual is unique and may respond differently to treatments. For this reason, treatment programs come in a variety of different forms with varying levels of intensity. While residential options are available for the most severe cases, not every individual will need this type of care. Outpatient centers can be precisely what some people need but not work for others. For clients that don’t entirely fit into either program, a partial hospitalization program (PHP) could be exactly what the patient needs. How exactly do partial hospitalization programs work?
