to Get Started
Evidence-Based Treatment Programs
We have found that substance abuse treatment is most effective in long-term recovery when a combination of the following methods are used:
Modern Wellness & Recovery Therapies
NAD+ is a therapy helping individuals stay on the path to recovery. Also known as Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, it’s a naturally occurring enzyme that promotes the production of energy within our body’s cells. With NAD+ therapy, individuals can improve brain function.
Vitamin IV Therapy
Yoga helps to improve general wellness by relieving stress, supporting good health habits, and improving mental/emotional health, sleep, and balance. Yoga is an effective treatment method for promoting relaxation and a helpful tool for managing anxiety or depressive symptoms.
This treatment helps individuals recover from substance abuse through the use of physical activities. These can include martial arts, yoga, hiking, and many other activities that enable individuals to explore their emotions while performing a healthy activity.
Group therapy sessions at the CRC Treatment Center in Chicago are available on a weekly, bi-weekly, or daily basis with a licensed therapist.

What are the stages of rehab?
Introduction to Addiction Treatment: In these first few days of rehab, you will be introduced to your counselor and a thorough medical evaluation will be performed by our medical staff. Based on your specific needs, a custom wellness program will be designed for you.
Detox: The detox stage is performed at home and lasts anywhere from a few days to multiple weeks, depending on the severity of your physical withdrawal symptoms. During this period, many individuals experience not just physical withdrawal, but also emotional and psychological withdrawal. Your wellness/treatment plan will address specific triggers for your drug and alcohol abuse and provide you with healthy coping tools for dealing with life.
Abstain from your Drug(s) of Choice/Maintain Sobriety: This rehab stage helps you to continue identifying your triggers and provides further insight and education on relapsing. During this critical phase, there is a strong emphasis on creating healthy habits and an overall healthy lifestyle through various alternative and modern therapies.
Long-Term Recovery: This final stage is focused on creating your long-term goals. It involves helping you to build new relationships, to engage in new hobbies and activities, and to find new areas of your life that bring you joy.

What are the 5 stages of recovery?
Effects of the Addiction/Illness: This first stage of addiction typically leaves you feeling overwhelmed by the addiction and ultimately controls your lifestyle.
Giving in to the Addiction/Illness: During this stage, you are not yet ready to make a change towards health and happiness in your life. You typically have a difficult time seeing how the addiction is complicating your life and limiting potential opportunities towards a better life.
Believing Change is Possible: You believe that change is possible and that it is possible to live a happy, healthy lifestyle regardless of past choices in your life.
Committing to Change: After believing change and recovery is possible, you commit to the belief by asking for help, or joining a rehab program.
Taking Action: You take specific actions daily to incorporate positive change into your life.

What is detox?
It’s common for people with a drug or alcohol addiction to experience a detox when abstaining from the drug of choice for an extended period of time. During detox, the body will physically go through symptoms of withdrawal. Symptoms during the detox will vary, but many symptoms include headaches, nausea, sweating, depression, confusion, and sometimes seizures. Detox symptoms typically last for a few days. At the CRC Rehab Center in Chicago, we make the detox process as comfortable and as safe as possible for each individual – each patient is also able to detox from their own home.
What is outpatient rehab?
While inpatient rehab centers are highly demanding, CRC outpatient rehab helps you ease into a healthy lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol with a more gentle approach.
