People turn to substance abuse for many reasons. It could be the result of falling on hard times, or a way of coping with past traumas and experiences. No matter what reason people give, usually substance abuse is the start of losing control of their lives. Once caught up in it, it is very difficult to find a way out without help.

At our Oregon location, Braden Counseling Center offers outpatient group counseling for those who suffer from substance abuse. This is an essential, ongoing treatment plan, and requires our clients to put effort and energy into an inpatient rehabilitation course.

Each substance abuse counselor at our Oregon, IL branch is trained to give their clients the help and support they need to prevent them from relapsing in the future.

How Individuals Are Evaluated

At a substance abuse evaluation, a certified and trained counselor at our Oregon, IL location takes each client on a case-by-case basis. Because of this, our treatment options are formulated by the counselor based upon the individual needs of each client. We understand that everyone’s circumstances are different, and that there cannot be a “one size fits all” approach.

Our assessment is based on information-gathering from the client, and their friends and family, with permission. We will consider your expectations, aspirations, and what your current life situation is when coming up with the best treatment plan for you.

Substance abuse assessment only works when the client is honest, something that the counselors at our Oregon, IL location need from everyone we treat. The only way we can assess what our client needs is through the information we gain from them.

We understand that talking openly about substance abuse is hard, but it is also necessary if we are to ensure success.

Once we know the situation at hand, we can start creating a treatment plan that gives the client essential life tools to continue with their recovery.

Substance Abuse Outpatient Treatment

The substance abuse programs at our Oregon, IL location are centered around each individual. They teach our clients how to manage their problems with substance abuse, and the challenges that come along with it.

This program is particularly useful for those that have already completed an inpatient program and require ongoing support to ensure they do not relapse.

For most people, a complete change of their way of life is the best way to handle treatment for substance abuse. This includes avoiding triggers that could set them down the wrong path once again. We understand that this requires great commitment and strength, and we aim to provide the right environment and support to help.

Our program helps clients recognize those triggers and learn to avoid or ignore them successfully. It allows our clients to re-assimilate themselves with the outside world in a positive manner.

For clients that have invested a lot into their recovery, a support system like this is completely necessary. It allows them to continue the amazing work they have already put into their health and well-being.

Substance Abuse Outpatient Counseling

Our substance abuse counseling services also offers effective treatment for those that do not require an inpatient recovery program in Oregon, IL. For clients that have completed inpatient treatment, but need ongoing support, this program is ideal.

All individuals entering this program will undergo a clinical assessment to determine whether or not it is suitable for them, or if a different course of action might be more effective.

An intake session is a great place to discuss treatment options. We will offer recommendations, including the possibility of professional detox, if we deem it necessary for the immediate situation.

This intensive outpatient program consists of intimate weekly group therapy sessions. Each week a different topic is introduced, including:

  • Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS)
  • How to prevent relapse
  • Urges and cravings management
  • Learning about the brain chemistry of addiction
  • Addiction disease progression
  • Introduction to the Twelve Steps
  • Spirituality
  • Stages of change
  • Co-occurring disorders and their effects on addiction and recovery
  • Family education program

DUIs and Substance Abuse Treatment

Our Oregon, IL location focuses on risk education for substance abuse treatment on all levels of DUI treatment. There are different categories of treatment that can result from an individual’s evaluation:

Level 1– Risk education is an initial ten-hour course held at the Sycamore, Elgin, and Rochelle centers. Attendees must start on week 1 and attend all four 2.5-hour classes in order to successfully complete it.

Level IIM– The client must undergo risk education for10 hrs, and early intervention for 12 hrs

Level IIS– This includes risk education for 10 hrs, substance abuse treatment for 20 hrs, and an After-Care Program.

Level III– You will undergo intensive treatment or 75 hrs, and an After-Care Program.

How Long-Term Recovery Works

All our programs are designed to pave the way for long-term recovery. Just as no two treatment options are the same, none of the treatment options we provide can be done with one or two sessions. It is our goal to arm each client with the skills necessary to rebuild their lives and enter back into society without the fear of relapsing, or going back to old, harmful habits. This includes enhancing their support network, by re-establishing important family relationships, and building bridges where other relationships have broken down.

I was an emotional wreck when I first went. I was nervous and probably not making a lot of sense. The staff seemed to understand and immediately put me at ease. By the time I left, life just didn’t seem so bad. Thank you Braden Center for being there.
