Downers Grove Relapse Intervention Program

The relapse prevention and treatment is designed for individuals who have successfully completed a primary treatment program and had some success in recovery from chemical dependency and returned to active alcohol or substance use. The group is intended to assist in returning to active recovery. The group session is a 2-hour session.

Generally, individuals are experiencing trouble during the first several months of their recovery efforts. These individuals have failed to work an effective recovery program and may have unfinished primary treatment goals, inadequate recovery supports, wavering motivation, and struggle with triggers, high-risk situations, and/or co-morbid medical or psychiatric problems. The group meets twice a week.
