Chestnut Health Systems Philosophy

With numerous locations throughout Illinois and Missouri, Chestnut Health Systems offers a full range of addiction treatment services for adolescents and adults. The Granite City drug and alcohol rehab facility provides clients with state-of-the-art addiction and mental health treatment services, including dual diagnosis, intensive outpatient treatment, and outpatient treatment. A highly trained team of clinicians works together to provide each client with a unique and comprehensive treatment plan. Chestnut believes that recovery is possible for everyone and is committed to providing the highest quality of care and professional excellence to anyone seeking recovery.

Areas of Specialization

  • Out Patient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

The facility offers outpatient addiction programs for adults, including medication assisted treatment (MAT). Detox is available at Chestnut Health Systems’ crisis stabilization unit in Bloomington.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Clients at Chestnut Health Systems undergo an initial assessment during admission to help the treatment team determine the most appropriate level of care. Clients needing medication can enter the MAT program, pending a medical evaluation. Chestnut Health Systems is one of 128 (20.2 percent of Illinois facilities that use Suboxone.
