Frequently Asked Questions

How do I begin to get help?

Simply call us at 847.618.2700 to make an appointment for an assessment. We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to take your call.

What information do you need?

At first, we need basic information such as age, school, problems, etc. We’d also like to know if you were referred to us and, if so, by whom?

What type of programs do you have?

We offer three programs:

  • The Residential Treatment Program is the most intensive and requires a commitment of a minimum of 30 days.
  • The Day Treatment Program is designed for a child who has a strong support system at home but needs a more structured environment than the typical high school setting. Patients spend a minimum 8 hours a day at our Center but can go home at night.
  • The Intensive Outpatient Program is an after school program to assist adolescents who have a significant substance abuse problem but are motivated to make changes. Patients attend a minimum of four sessions a week.

Do you address psychiatric issues?

Our primary course of treatment is substance abuse/chemical dependency. We do address psychiatric issues with our staff psychiatrist. If your child is on medication for psychiatric problems, we will dispense and manage their medications.

Will my child continue their studies?

Our two certified teachers will work with your home school district to coordinate your child’s studies.

Does insurance cover the treatment programs?

Our goal is to provide quality substance abuse treatment for reasonable charges. We will bill your insurance plan for payment of services. We provide a financial counselor to answer billing questions and assist you with payment issues.
