Facility Highlights

  • Number one in the Midwest
  • High success rates
  • Locally owned and operated


  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

  • Mike Lazar
    Mike LazarBHT Supervisor
    When Mike was 13 years old he found himself experimenting with marijuana and alcohol with friends. Soon after he began taking pills and eventually harder drugs to deal with life. Mike got sober for the first time when I was 18. He left Philadelphia, his hometown, and travelled to Los Angeles and was taken under the wing of a staff member at the sober living where he lived. Mike says, “I’ll never forget what that person did for me and ever since I have set out to do the same for someone else who was as scared and hopeless as I was. I love recovery and if it weren’t for the staff of a few facilities I don’t think I could have learned how to be a person in recovery.” “Damn right I like the life I live, cause I went from negative to positive and it’s all good” -Notorious B.I.G.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Located in Bloomington, Indiana, which is about 50 miles south of Indianapolis, Indiana Center for Recovery (ICFR) provides residential treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorders. The independent, family-owned operation is one of 78 private, nonprofit treatment facilities in Indiana, which make up about 29 percent of all facilities in the state.


ICFR's program follows a holistic approach to treatment that focuses on five key domains: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Each client receives an individual treatment plan and is exposed to a range of evidence-based treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

In addition to group, family, and one-on-one counseling, clients participate in relapse prevention workshops, 12-step meetings, mindfulness meditation groups, and addiction education. They're also given the opportunity to enjoy yoga classes, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, and personal training programs.


ICFR's treatment team includes physicians, psychologists, licensed addiction counselors, master's-level therapists, and clinical coaches.


ICFR offers accommodations in home-like, gender-specific residences with semi-private rooms. Meals are prepared by an executive chef who can accommodate dietary restrictions and special needs.


While Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, ICFR earned an average rating of 4.4 out of five stars based on seven Google reviews[1]. The two former clients who left commentary described the program as effective and the environment as comfortable and caring. "ICFR is like family," Thomas wrote in a representative review. "I miss them! You feel at home."


Kathy, the one family member who evaluated the facility on Google[2], also praised the program for its warm and welcoming environment. "My son was there 4 months and he was a PERSON, not a bed," she noted. "The entire staff treated him with kindness liked he'd never experienced in treatment previously."
