Family Guidance Centers, a non-for-profit behavioral healthcare organization, treats and prevents substance abuse, as well as an array of other related problems. Family Guidance Centers offer a full array of inpatient and outpatient chemical dependency programs for adults and outpatient services for youth. Family Guidance Centers is located at Springfield, Illinois.

Family Guidance Centers Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Rehab Services:

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

Methadone Maintenance Treatment or ORT (Opiate Replacement Therapy) is the use of methadone as a substitute for someone who is addicted to opioids (heroin, OxyContin, codeine, Dilaudid, Percocet and others), helping with the recovery process reducing the cravings for the opioids or used as part of the admittance process to a substance abuse treatment facility that requires complete abstinence.

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

What does Family Guidance Centers offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive outpatient services provide concentrated intervention focused on assisting the patient in establishing initial abstinence. After a comprehensive substance abuse assessment, an individualized treatment plan and service schedule is established. Patients are educated on the disease process of addiction and participate in highly structured and highly focused treatment sessions. Group, individual and case management sessions address the individual’s personal addictive history and use patterns as well as concrete steps for interrupting the illicit use pattern. Related problems such as employment, family, legal, health and mental health concerns are also addressed. Patients attend a minimum of nine hours of counseling per week and are provided with periodic drug screening to help track progress.

Outpatient (OP)

Persons appropriate for outpatient programming are in need of structured treatment focused on prevention of illicit use, but are ready to begin incorporating sober lifestyle changes into settings outside of treatment such as family, work, school etc. Recognizing substance abuse as a multidimensional problem, outpatient treatment plans can address many issues including HIV, Hepatitis C,and other infectious disease prevention, job-readiness, perinatal addiction, domestic violence, criminal justice issues, parenting, concurrent health issues, and mental health in conjunction with the overarching goal of freedom from drug and alcohol abuse. The outpatient service menu includes substance abuse assessment, group counseling, individual counseling, case management, and periodic drug screening.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The primary goal of residential treatment is to provide the substance abusing and substance dependent client with a structured environment that optimizes a positive treatment outcome. Residential Rehab is a residential therapeutic community that is professionally staffed 24 hours a day. This residential community is designed to improve the client’s ability to structure and organize the tasks of daily living and recovery. Clinical programming is designed to develop and apply recovery skills, including relapse prevention, interpersonal choices, and development of a social network supportive of recovery. Clients admitted to Residential Rehab must be at least 18 years of age. The client must have a substance use disorder which he or she is currently unable to effectively control without the structure of such an intensive treatment environment. The client must be willing to engage in treatment and become abstinent.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.
