“My life has improved in every aspect, I think because I’m not relying on something that could be so detrimental to me just to feel like myself… I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m still growing and I don’t have all the answers. And I’m okay with that.”

If you’re considering entering recovery, know that you aren’t alone and have a compassionate community cheering you on at Sandstone. Begin your journey by verifying your insurance or giving us a call.
If you or someone you know is grappling with addiction in Illinois, please reach out to us. We’re here to address your specific needs and concerns, helping you find a better path to recovery.
Addiction can make you feel disconnected from the things you love, so we go beyond just treating your symptoms. We understand that your well-being is not just about quitting substance use. It’s also about getting your life back on track.
That’s why we offer academic and vocational support, ensuring that your education and career goals are not derailed. We provide recreational activities to help you find things to motivate you; it’s time to rediscover more and relapse less.
Different drugs can impact the brain and body differently, so our credentialed physicians are trained to be experts in what you are experiencing as you recover. Some examples of the specific treatments we offer include the following substances.
Marijuana addiction happens when you can’t control your use of weed or THC and use it to self-medicate.
Alcohol addiction happens when you are not able to stop drinking, even when it hurts your health, life, and relationships.
Opioid addiction occurs when you can’t stop misusing prescription drugs like fentanyl, oxycodone, or morphine.
Stimulant addiction happens when you feel that you cannot function without misusing drugs like cocaine, methamphetamines, Adderall, and more.
At Sandstone Care, we believe in personalized and specialized care. Unlike generic treatment approaches, we understand that each individual’s circumstances are unique.
Through thorough assessments, our licensed therapists, medical professionals, and experienced staff gain a deep understanding of your background, challenges, and goals. Comprehensive programming, therapy, and education, equips your family with the necessary tools to support your loved ones’ recovery journey.
With our comprehensive continuum of care, you’ll receive the right level of support at each stage of recovery. Whether you need high-support care, or a few hours of outpatient treatment a week, our expert team will collaborate with you to find what works best for you.
Because there can be an overlap in symptoms between drug use and mental health disorders, it’s very important to accurately assess and treat both challenges together. If not treated this way, recovery can be much more difficult, as treatment may only be focusing on one half of the problem.
An individual can attend an alcohol rehab program but never address an underlying anxiety disorder. While they may learn to stop drinking, the root of the issue isn’t addressed and other substances or unhealthy patterns may come into their life to cope with the anxiety.
At the Sandstone Care rehab centers in Illinois, we understand that everyone’s recovery journey is different. That’s why we work closely with you to understand the full scope of your situation and provide the care you need.
Depression is more than just feeling down for a few days — symptoms are long lasting and can affect you in many ways.
Anxiety disorders are thought patterns of fear, dread, and uneasiness that affect other aspects of your life.
Trauma is the emotional response to a specific event like an accident, sexual abuse, or a natural disaster.
ADHD is marked by difficulty focusing, controlling impulsive behaviors, and over-activity.
I initially came to Sandstone for IOP and it helped me get through a really though time in my life. I ended up staying through OP and I would recommend it to anyone that needs support with their mental health.

The assessment is the first step for all of our clients. The primary reason for the assessment is for us to get to know you and your situation so we can recommend the right program for you, whether that is at one of Sandstone Care’s treatment facilities, or somewhere else.
When you come to our addiction treatment center for an assessment, we start creating an aftercare plan for you right away, so that you won’t have to worry about bridging the gap yourself between treatment services and your day-to-day life.
The amount of treatment needed is dependent on each individual. A licensed clinician performs a thorough and comprehensive clinical assessment to better understand the unique needs of each person.
Some factors that may determine how much treatment you need are:
There are many signs that getting help might be necessary. Some signs may include changes in friend groups, under-preforming at school, running away, participating in illicit activities, engaging in risky behavior, or acts of self-harm.

Family plays a vital role in the overall wellness of each loved one served.

Connection is key in recovery, and we teach mindfulness exercises that can help rekindle your strained relationships. Our program also utilizes weekly Multi-Family groups to reinforce new skills being learned in support groups.
