Specialization

  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

I not only worked at Illinois Institute in the past but I had a family member and a friend utilize their treatment. The initial assessment is treatment focused and helps determine the appropriate level of care for each individual. The treatment plans are also individualized and not cookie cutters!! I have watched and lived the effectiveness of IIAR and would recommend and send my own child there if necessary.

Released after 2 weeks, minimal (1) contact with therapist. Discharged without notice, didn�t want to leave. A staff said insurance would no longer pay since no issues were apparent, yet she never met with my grandson. The Physician�s Assistant was a strength.My grandson�s first night was on a bed with a partial box spring. This was never taken care of. . I don�t know about the other staff but he pulled the short straw. He mentioned a staff was good, met with his patients and was helpful. Sad that she is there when she really needs a break or a job change, not dealing with people.

My son was discharged successfully after two weeks. He was not ready to go, stated he wasn't ready, and had never even met with his counselor for a one-on-one, other than the initial questionaire paperwork and the meeting to tell him he was going home. She said he was having no issues and was ready. I imagine it appeared that way since she never sat down with him to find out how he was doing. She knew nothing about him which was very apparent during the family meeting/going home meeting. She would make statements which were not factual and my son would point this out to her, statements about telling his brother about his addiction,etc. His brother was instrumental in getting him to treatment and had been in attendance at the family group. .. My son was so discouraged at being discharged without warning. I was proud of him because he let her know she did not do her job, knew nothing about him, and was not listening to him and his concerns. She offered for him to stay for an additional $10,000, which my son turned down because he could not afford that and knew it would stress him out. I am basing this on personal experience as an addictions therapist, and an alumni of Hazelden. He is a 27 yr old, self-supporting young man. The treatment plan for him once he goes home was up in the air..,I know from experience that treatment shows the path and what is done in life is what determines your recovery. I truly hated my son leaving what 'should' have been a warm experience angry and discouraged. I don't like feeling concerned about this facility and not being able to recommend it. He loved the PA and said she was more of a therapist and much more helpful than a staff. Serious concerns! No, he never met with counselor for an actual sit down and talk, his "homework" was never discussed with him, he was given no prep for leaving, healthy food was not an option. said the facility works thru the groups...our thought is the patients are in there to get a better perspective, learn how to live, get some education, relapse prevention, counseling. They get some of that from a group of peers, but there also needs to be a functional adult showing them, leading by example, etc. That was barely provided

My boyfriend was a patient here and we were told he would be in the program for 21 to 28 days. He was only there for 14 days... His counselor,only met with him one time at the very beginning of his treatment and had him fill out a questionnaire and then another "meeting". She told the insurance company that from a clinical stand point he was okay to be discharged. My boyfriend was not ready to leave when he was discharged. If had done her job and sat down and talked with him she would have known that he was not ready. He did not have any direction whatsoever as to what he should be opening up about or what he should be doing as this was his first time in treatment. It was a shame for him to have to leave like he did, feeling discouraged because his voice was not heard. We are very disappointed in the care that he received here.

So I go in here requesting an outpatient treatment program. I cannot do inpatient due to family obligations. I do the intense intake process, spilling my guts to a total stranger, only to be told that the only outpatient program they do is AFTER a 28 day inpatient stay. I feel duped and frustrated. Why was their policy not mentioned BEFORE I went through a nearly 3 hour process which resulted in NO treatment options for me?
