Our Substance Use Treatment and Recovery Services are designed to assist all persons struggling with a substance use disorder through a variety of treatment and recovery services.

Our Approach

Our goal is to assist all persons in Will County struggling with a substance use disorder to reach their life’s full potential. Our program’s format allows individuals to live at home, to work, and to care for themselves and their families, while receiving treatment services.


Will County adults over the age of 18 who are struggling with substance use (alcohol and/or drugs) are eligible. Treatment is available to those with Medicaid/MCO coverage, private insurance coverage or with no insurance coverage.

Non-residents may be eligible if they are currently under the supervision of the Will County court (12th Judicial Court).


We accept most private insurances and the cost for treatment is typically covered by Medicaid/MCO. We accept all patients regardless of their ability to pay including uninsured Will County residents.

Substance Use Assessment

Our program begins with an assessment of alcohol and substance use to help identify individual patient client needs.

Our Treatment Programs

Intensive Outpatient
The Intensive Outpatient Program is for individuals seeking more intensive levels of services for their alcohol or substance use while maintaining flexibility within their lifestyle. The Intensive Outpatient Program provides group and individual counseling for up to nine hours per week.

Our Outpatient Program is for individuals who would benefit from less intensive levels of care in a restorative environment. The outpatient programs include weekly group and individual appointments that meet the unique needs of each client.

Peer Support Services
Certified peer support professionals provide experience, education and professional services to assist our clients develop and/or maintain recovery-oriented, wellness-focused lifestyles. Persons with lived experience are trained to incorporate their unique personal experience in their own recovery with a distinct knowledge base and human service skills. This combination of experience and training facilitates recovery.

Medication Assisted Recovery Services
The Will County Community Health Center offers Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat alcohol and substance use disorders, and for some medications can help sustain recovery. MAT services include the use of buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol), in combination with counseling. Counseling is available in the Substance Use Treatment and Recovery Services at the Will County Health Department. Medication and counseling provide a “whole person” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Call 815-727-8670 for more information on the MAT program.

Got Naloxone?

GOT NALOXONE is a special rapid response program funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services/SUPR. A team of individuals in long-term recovery distribute naloxone throughout the Will County community.
