Addictions Associates Therapy, Inc. offers outpatient treatment for addiction and substance abuse in Libertyville, Indiana. This facility has been in operation for 33 years, providing affordable care to both self-referred and court-ordered clients. AAT also offers DUI/DWI evaluations, driver license reinstatement and educational groups. The program director, Jim Lucchesi, oversees all client evaluations as well as individual therapy sessions.
Treatment and Staff
Approximately 75% of clients who come to AAT are court-ordered. Before treatment can begin, all must start with an evaluation and treatment recommendations. The program director determines the level of treatment needed, including detox when necessary. Though AAT does not offer detox on-site, the staff refers clients out to Lake County Health Department.
Initial consults are free of charge. Lucchesi works alongside clients to develop individualized treatment plans. Length of treatment varies, though clients choose between basic outpatient services or an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Those who are self-referred typically attend an average of 10 hours a week of educational and therapeutic groups, adding up to 75 hours over six to eight weeks. Typically, IOP clients attend groups two to three times a week with each group lasting three hours. AAT does not offer 12-step groups on-site, so clients are referred to Serenity House, the closest 12-step meeting facility off-site. Clients attending groups and individual therapy sessions as part of aftercare treatment regularly bring AA/NA literature back to the facility to share with newcomers in treatment.
Lucchesi himself conducts all individual therapy sessions. Three LADCs oversee educational groups and group counseling. The therapist works on-site four days a week, Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 9 pm.
AAT supports court requirements for clients seeking to reinstate drivers’ licenses and privileges with alcohol and drug educational groups to meet these needs.
AAT offers flexible treatment for addiction and substance abuse. Clients attend treatment at convenient hours during the day and evenings to accommodate their jobs and family lives following either a basic outpatient track or IOP. This small clinical practice gives clients an intimate space to begin the recovery process, with plenty of one-on-one help and small group sessions.
