Detailed overview of services

1. Individual & Group Counseling

2. Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP):

The first step to determining whether this is the right program for you is to call and schedule an appointment for an assessment. 

If your assessment shows that you can benefit from additional support as you address your substance use, PEER Services provides intensive outpatient services to help you.  Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provide a structured and focused treatment experience that connects you with others who are working on recovery. Our groups include but are not limited to psychoeducation, mindfulness activities, and therapeutic discussions​.

3. Medication-Assisted Recovery:

Since 1975, we have utilized FDA-approved medications to help adults through opioid withdrawal. Our expert team—which includes a physician, nurses, and counselors—will work with you to design a treatment plan addressing your specific needs.  We focus on helping you return to your maximum level of functioning so that you can live the life you want.

Our program employs a holistic approach to treatment. Patients receive education, training and support related to

  • Accessing Support through 12-Step Recovery
  • Developing Healthier Nutrition and Exercise Practices
  • Managing Pain and Stress
  • Managing Conflict
  • Strengthening Daily Living Skills

4. Art Therapy

Art therapy incorporates art materials with the counseling process. The use of art can be a helpful tool in expressing feelings, visualizing change, and fostering connection with self and others. PEER offers individual and group art therapy sessions for both teens and adults. Click here for highlights from PEER’s art therapy offerings in 2022.

5. Alcohol and Other Drug Evaluations

If you have been required to receive an alcohol and other drug evaluation, PEER Services can help you. We offer evaluation services for adults and adolescents referred by the criminal justice system, DCFS, employers, physicians, psychotherapists, private attorneys, hospitals, mental health centers, social service agencies, and other organizations.

We will provide you with a thorough evaluation, including a complete social history, drug history, and vocational assessment. 

Due to the confidential nature of our work, respecting the privacy of the individuals and families we serve is a top priority. The confidentiality of substance use evaluations and any related treatment is highly protected under federal law (42 CFR Part 2).  If you would like us to share your evaluation, we will ask you to sign a release of information specifying with whom your information may be shared.

6. DUI Risk Education & Aftercare

We are licensed by the State of Illinois to provide DUI Risk Education classes for adults and teens required to take such classes by the Illinois Secretary of State’s office. While all individuals with a DUI in Illinois must complete Risk Education, the Secretary of State may require you to participate in additional substance abuse treatment based on results of your DUI Evaluation. As a licensed DUI provider, we may be able to fulfill out-of-state requirements as well.
