Cutting Edge IIAR Programs
Early Intervention for Young Adults and Adults

The Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery offers Early Intervention for Young Adults. The program is designed to be an interactive educational experience for young people aged 12-18, who may be engaging in at-risk behaviors such as compulsive chemical, food, Internet or gambling use.

The program is a variable length of stay program with participants attending a minimum of eight weeks. Individuals will receive education on topics such as choices and consequences, anger and stress management, values and decision making, and more. Young people in this program will also be introduced to the 12-step program.

IIAR also has an Early Intervention program for adults which is a psychoeducational program designed for ages 18 and older. This is also a variable length of stay program where participants attend a minimum of 12 weeks. Specially trained counselors facilitate both programs.

Extended Care

The Extended Care program is located at IIAR at Proctor Hospital and Advocate BroMenn Regional Medical Center. It is designed to accommodate individuals 18 and older and who need a setting that provides more time and structure to deal with problems associated with addictive behaviors such as chemicals, gambling, food, sex, spending, or the Internet. The extended length of stay can assist with entrenched denial, chronic relapse, and other complicated issues such as chronic pain or multiple diagnosis.

Chronic Pain and Addiction Treatment

This is a treatment program that identifies, evaluates, and treats chemical and process addictions such as chronic pain. Addiction and chronic pain are treated separately but simultaneously by utilizing a chronic pain treatment team consisting of: an ASAM certified addictionologist, and anesthesiologist (board-certified in pain treatment), a clinical psychologist and licensed or certified counselors in consultation with a psychiatrist, a physiatrist, a neurologist, and a physical therapist.

This program has treated addicts with pain from back injuries, arthritis, post-laminectory syndrome, cancer patients, shingles, headaches, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathies, pelvic and neck injuries, or surgeries.

The IIAR Chronic Pain Team specializes in assessing and evaluating those people with chronic pain who have been unable to use pain medications.
