In several locations in Illinois, TASC provides outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment for substance use conditions, and also co-occurring mental health conditions.
Specializing in services for
people who have been involved in justice or child welfare systems, TASC’s
treatment programs address a wide range of clients’ strengths and needs. We
offer outpatient (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) services for men
and women with substance use conditions.
Men and women with substance
use or co-occurring mental health services may contact TASC directly, with or without
a referral from the justice system.
We begin with an evaluation
to develop a diagnosis, determine if treatment is needed, and assess what types
and levels of treatment are recommended. OP treatment (1-2 sessions/week) and
IOP treatment (several sessions per week) may include individual and group
In treatment, individuals
learn about addiction and mental health conditions, and how to manage symptoms
and behaviors. Treatment is a process of learning new coping skills, decision
making, and problem-solving skills, and developing a plan for ongoing recovery.
Treatment is only the beginning. Recovery is an ongoing, day-by-day process of
improving health, wellness, and quality of life.
When it comes to treatment,
we believe in client choice. As with
most health issues, there are different types of treatment. Whether with TASC
or another treatment provider, we encourage and guide clients to find the
program that is right for them.
