Braden Counseling Center in Dekalb, Ill., is a full-service regular outpatient counseling center. The center covers the full spectrum of chemical dependency and mental health disorders for patients of all ages. In addition to substance abuse therapy, Braden offers license reinstatement programs and DUI counseling.


Patients undergo a free initial consultation to determine the best counseling services to meet their needs. They are then offered individual, group, or family treatment at the outpatient center, one of 599 (88 percent) across the state of Illinois. Braden also offers same-day DUI evaluations, which can help patients reclaim their drivers’ licenses.

The staff utilizes SMART Recovery as a part of its treatment processes. In addition to the DUI services, Braden offers group counseling services that treat co-occurring mental health disorders that they believe are connected to substance abuse. The center does not only treat chemical addictions, suggesting that its therapy tools are very useful for addiction to shopping, the Internet, sex, and other behaviors.


The staff at Braden is made up of a licensed clinical psychologist, certified addiction specialists and licensed social workers and counselors.
