Total Rehab centers in Illinois

Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Illinois

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Illinois residents are not exempt from problematic drug and alcohol abuse, with many state rates of use similar to those of the national averages.1 Consider the following 2015 statistics concerning Illinois substance abuse among people aged 12 and older:1,2

  • About 36,000 people reported having used heroin
  • About 5.8 million individuals reported past-month alcohol use.

Where Else Can I Find Help in IL?

Insurance coverage is not the only way to pay for your addiction treatment. Plenty of people without insurance are able to finance their recovery through a number of options, such as:

  • Medicaid: Illinois Medicaid is a public assistance program that benefits low-income people of all ages, pregnant women, and those who are disabled or blind.3
  • Payment plan: Some recovery programs will work with you to create a financing schedule in which the cost of treatment can be paid over time.
  • Sliding scale: Some lower income people may qualify for reduced treatment prices based on their income level.
  • SAMHSA grants: People who need extra assistance can apply for substance abuse treatment grants offered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
  • Crowdfunding: You can create an online campaign in which family, friends, and strangers can donate to help fund addiction treatment. You might be surprised how much you can raise from people who want to see you get the help you need.
