Over 22 million Americans need treatment for addiction, but less than 3 million actually get the help they need.

At Lake Villa, we work hard to meet you halfway and make your recovery as straightforward as possible. We offer highly customizable treatment plans with a variety of addiction therapy services that can work no matter what stage of the recovery process you are currently at. Finding the most effective treatment options for you can be the key to a successful recovery. Not every treatment will work for every resident. Therefore, Lake Villa can create a custom treatment regimen that’s effective for you.

What is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational Interviewing is a therapy approach where people learn to resolve their insecurities by finding the internal motivation they need to change their behaviors.

Addiction Therapy Services at Lake Villa

Lake Villa provides an extensive suite of addiction therapy services, both at our residential facility and through our outpatient program. Offering both services to our residents allows us to continue support and prolong therapies to give clients lasting sobriety. Our highly trained staff can administer a wide range of treatments, including:

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • 12 Step Facilitation
  • Motivational Interviewing

Not every resident will use all of these addiction therapy services, but each of these treatments has its benefits. For example, dual diagnosis treatment involves cases of mental illness co-occurring with addiction and treats both diseases together for maximum effectiveness.

Acceptance and commitment therapy helps people to accept emotions and learn to make judgments that are consistent with values of personal well-being. Cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy are also two common forms of addiction therapy. Both focus on identifying unhealthy behaviors and relearning healthy coping mechanisms.

The 12 Step program for recovery is a popular one with widely recognized success. It encourages participants to rely on a higher power and give themselves the peace they need to recover. Finally, motivational interviewing is a therapy technique used to uncover motivation and create meaningful habit changes.

Begin Your Recovery Journey

All of these therapies can be effective. However, you and your therapist will work together to decide which programs are best for your needs. Whether you are seeking treatment for the first time or have tried and failed before, Lake Villa can offer you help.

Our addiction therapy services are easily customizable to your needs and your situation. We work with you to create an open and honest dialogue about your recovery. Additionally, our proven treatment methods and highly trained staff can provide an ideal recovery environment for everyone. Surprisingly, the path to sobriety may be much simpler than you thought.

Getting help for addiction can seem impossible. Whether it’s you or a loved one who needs help, addiction can create a sense of hopelessness. Lake Villa offers hope. Our experienced staff can administer a proven treatment plan that’s crafted to suit your needs. Call us today at 847.356.8205 to learn about your treatment options.
