Over 10% of American adults are in recovery from a drug or alcohol substance use disorder.

Seeking out addiction treatment can be a daunting task. Often, those struggling with addiction are too preoccupied to even think about seeking help. Additionally, if and when they do seek help, it can feel like a near impossible feat to get sober. Despite that, even if you’ve taken those first steps, choosing which addiction treatment programs will work best for you can be just as difficult.

Fortunately, there are a plethora of rehab options to choose from. However, trying each one is not really possible. Understanding what your treatment options are, and how they function, can take away much of the confusion and anxiety about starting treatment.

About Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment is the use of medically-controlled substances to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings. In a medically-monitored setting, Medication-Assisted Treatment can ease the discomfort of detox and support lasting recovery.


With the ever-growing amount of addiction treatment programs and therapies that are available to patients, the addiction treatment industry has never been more saturated. Fortunately, there are now treatment options that can work for even the most unique and troublesome cases. Luckily, Lake Villa offers many of these proven treatments, including:

  • Residential Treatment
  • Intensive Outpatient program
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment
  • Adolescent program

Of course, these are just a few of the many addiction treatment programs that are available to you at Lake Villa. Your recovery may involve all, or only a few of the therapies we offer depending on what you and your therapist decide is best for you. Our staff draws upon years of experience and your own input to choose the most effective treatments for you. Together, you and your treatment specialist will decide what programs will work best for you and then create an effective and comfortable treatment regimen.


Understanding how these addiction treatment programs work can be challenging for some. In general, residential treatment is typical for most treatment centers and involves the long-term, 24/7 treatment of a patient at a rehab center.

On the other hand, intensive outpatient programs are just the opposite and involve the patient receiving treatment while continuing to live and work outside the facility. Medication-Assisted Treatment consists of the use of certain medications to lessen symptoms of withdrawal from specific substances. Finally, our adolescent program is specifically for teenagers and young adults who find themselves fighting addiction.


At Lake Villa, we are leaders in the fields of addiction treatment and recovery. Our goal is to provide as many addiction treatment programs as possible to our residents. Because addiction can come in many forms and span a variety of substances, we offer multiple addiction programs for:

  • Opioid addiction
  • Methamphetamine addiction
  • Alcoholism
  • Cocaine and crack addiction
  • Benzodiazepine addiction

Furthermore, while these are the most common substances we offer treatment for, we can also treat addictions for a range of other substances. We provide our unwavering support and care to anyone who struggles with a form of addiction. Addiction is not something that you have to live with. Luckily, recovery is available and also possible.
