COVID-19: AN UPDATE

Hello everyone,

We know that this is a confusing time, especially with regards to navigating health services. We are here for you. We will continue providing treatment, answering your questions, and doing all we can to keep you and the community safe.

We continue to provide ALL SERVICES to current and new clients and are making the following changes to keep our clients and staff safe:

All outpatient treatment, with the exception of medication-assisted treatment (MAT), will be provided remotely utilizing telehealth: safe, one-to-one connections over the telephone. Aside from MAT services, our Evanston and Glenview offices will be closed.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services will be provided for current patients in our Evanston office between the hours of 7am-12pm. Outpatient counseling and case management with this program will be done using telehealth services. See below for details.

To contact us, call 847-492-1778, or see contact information for specific programs below. Please reach out if you or someone you know needs help!

Medication Assisted Treatment: All medication-based services and procedures remain unchanged but will only be provided from 7am to 12pm at our Evanston office. All outpatient counseling and case management with this program will be done using telehealth services. We are still accepting new clients.
