DACC provides continuing aftercare for Moderate, Significant, and High Risk Levels only.
Aftercare Definition - From National Library of Medicine & SAMSHA
Aftercare, or continuing care, is the stage following discharge, when the client no longer requires services at the intensity required during primary treatment. A client is able to function using a self-directed plan, which includes minimal interaction with a counselor. Counselor interaction takes on a monitoring function. Clients continue to reorient their behavior to the ongoing reality of a pro-social, sober lifestyle. Aftercare can occur in a variety of settings, such as periodic outpatient aftercare, relapse/recovery groups, 12-Step and self-help groups, and halfway houses. Whether individuals completed primary treatment in a residential or outpatient program, they have at least some of the skills to maintain sobriety and begin work on remediating various areas of their lives. Work is intrapersonal and interpersonal as well as environmental. Areas that relate to environmental issues, such as vocational rehabilitation, finding employment, and securing safe housing, fall within the purview of case management.
Because case managers interact with the client in the community, they are in a unique position to see the results of work being done in aftercare groups and provide perspective about the client's functioning in the community. Recent findings suggest that the case management relationship may be as valuable to the client during this phase of recovery as that with the addictions counselor (Siegal et al., 1997; Godley et al., 1994). Aftercare is important in completing treatment both from a funding standpoint (many funders refuse to pay for aftercare services), as well as from the client's perspective.
Abstaining from drugs and alcohol while in treatment is expected. Urine screens and breathalyzers may be randomly requested.
DACC has the ability to perform the following tests for court, probation and personal use:
Drug Screen (Instant)
Immuno-EtG (Immuoassay screen for EtG)
If you received a ticket for possession of an illegal drug, underage possession of alcohol, or public intoxication, DACC can help you through the process before you step in front of a judge.
IT IS YOUR CHOICE to be proactive and choose your own SUPR Licensed Evaluator* and treatment provider, or you can wait until the judge orders you where to go.
*In the state of Illinois, Cook and DuPage Counties' initial DUI Evaluations must be completed by their approved Evaluators
Sometimes during our journey in life, we come to a cross point where we loose that smooth easy going life either with ourselves or with those around us. Perhaps you deal with anxiety that can be overwhelming, or relationship issues that don't seem to change for the better. When we acknowledge these issues and realize that it is out of our control, seeking a professional counselor may help bridge the gap from no change to change. If you are here, you have already begun the process of change but perhaps you need some guidance.
If you believe in GOD and not sure how GOD's Word can be weaved into your process of change, viewing and using the Bible to conquer the complexities of your issue(s) is part of our approach. We offer individual sessions and group sessions.
Group therapy can be quite beneficial as it helps people realize that they are not alone! Knowing you are not alone, the peers within the group can provide great feedback and another view point. Learning about yourself and GOD's Word in a group setting can be very rewarding and helpful during your process of self-awareness.
Topics can include but are not limited to:
Anxiety | Depression | Trauma | Greif
Relationships/Divorce | Men's Issues
Substance Use | OCD | Identify
Call today if you are ready to move forward in healing with GOD's Word.
Individual Counseling either Secular or Faith based can be provided at our facility. A personalized approach along with one-on-one attention may be more beneficial that participating in a group therapy session. Learning new ways to cope or identifying triggers to understanding how you impact those around you are great benefits to individual counseling. You are able to move at your own pace and not feel pressured about it.
If you are looking for self-improvement or find out the root cause of your isolation, our therapist can help you along the way.
DACC provides other services as well. If you have completed partial treatment at another facility, you can transfer your hours to DACC.*
*You may need to obtain a copy of hours completed from other facility in order for hours to transfer.
