Substance Use Treatment
Our comprehensive behavioral health treatment programs provide options that focus on substance use treatment needs. Following a thorough substance use evaluation, our programs offer two levels of care.
Our outpatient substance use programs include weekly group and individual appointments that meet the unique needs of each client.
Intensive Outpatient Program
The Intensive Outpatient Program provides group and individual counseling for up to nine-hours per week. Our programs are structured to meet the individualized needs identified following a substance use evaluation.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an approach that incorporates medication with counseling and behavioral therapy to treat substance use disorders and decrease the risk of opioid overdose. MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates.
Our MAT program currently utilizes naltrexone (Vivitrol) and buprenorphine (Suboxone). To be eligible for MAT, participation in our substance use therapy/counseling program is required.
At times, individuals may be required by the court, probation or another criminal justice entity to complete a substance use evaluation and any recommended treatment. Our Forensic Behavioral Health Counselors can help set a course of treatment to help address symptoms of a substance use disorder while also helping to navigate the criminal justice system.
Who is eligible for services?
- Adults over the age of 18 who are struggling with substance use (alcohol and/or drugs) are eligible. Treatment is available to those with Medicaid/MCO coverage or with no insurance coverage. Those with private insurance coverage are encouraged to use a provider in the community who accepts his/her insurance plan.
How much do services cost?
- The cost for treatment is typically covered by Medicaid/MCO. If someone is not eligible for Medicaid/MCO, income will determine eligibility for treatment to be reimbursed by one of our state contracts. A sliding-fee schedule based on national poverty guidelines is also available for non-insured, DuPage County residents.
