Peer Support & Meetings

 COVID-19 UPDATE: We will continue to follow the guidance of the Illinois Department of Public Health and the CDC, making changes to our programming as needed.

  • Recovery coaching and case management services for individuals and families can take place in-person or virtually. To request support, please call 844-584-5254 x812.

We can now offer to transport participants in Lake, Suburban Cook, McHenry, and DuPage counties to a recovery-oriented location (doctor’s office visit, counseling appointment, probation or parole meeting, etc.). To request a ride, please call 844-584-5254 x812.
