Located blocks from the Kankakee River, in the center of the small city of Kankakee in northeastern Illinois, Presence St. Mary’s Hospital is part of the Presence Health network, which runs 11 hospitals and many other healthcare locations in Illinois. A private, nonprofit facility, St. Mary’s Hospital offers outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents struggling with addiction, behavioral health disorders, and dual diagnosis. It's one of 168 treatment facilities in Illinois (just 26.5 percent of all facilities in the state) to offer groups tailored to adolescents.

Art therapy was nice. Not enough one on one therapy. They didn't care about their patients on an individual basis. Felt very much like a prison instead of treatment.
