What is Recovery?
Recovery is breaking the cycle of hazardous drug/alcohol use or problem gambling. At Renz Addiction Counseling Center, we help restore hope and recover lives by supporting people who begin the process of recovery. Our clients improve their self-confidence, self-image and self-respect.
Each treatment program is designed to help individuals develop the structure and tools necessary to begin recovery from their substance use disorder. Renz Center employs an integrative approach, utilizing evidence-based therapy practices that include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Seeking Safety, Matrix Model, Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Contingency Management. For many clients who are dealing with a primary mental health/mental illness, we approach their treatment focused on their co-occurring disorders and focus on both issues concurrently.
We are approved to provide treatment to clients who are involved in the Court systems in Cook, DuPage, Kane and McHenry Counties. Our women’s program employs a childcare worker 4 evenings per week to care for the children of our women with dependent children clients.
