Behavioral Health Care Associates


schaumburg illinoisThe Basics

Behavioral Health Care Associates opened in the Chicago suburb of Des Plains, Illinois in 1994. Founder Dr. Blaise J. Wolfrum, an addiction specialist and psychiatrist, wanted to offer residents a comprehensive behavioral health and substance abuse treatment facility with a client focused treatment approach. Behavioral Health Care Associates provides short-term detox, outpatient and DUI services for adults.

Treatment and Staff

Those who come to Behavioral Health Care Associates initially meet with a doctor or substance abuse counselor for an assessment to decide what course of action would be best. For those who need to detox from opiates or alcohol, the medical staff takes the necessary steps in order to ensure clients receive the safest and most comfortable experience possible. Urinalysis tests are performed and medication is issued during clients’ three to five day stay where they are monitored 24 hours a day. After detox, the facility can refer clients to residential treatment, an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in the area or to weekly 12-step meetings that take place Tuesday evenings on-site.

Clients who are sentenced to treatment due to a DUI conviction can attend Behavioral Health Care Associates outpatient group therapy sessions as well as psychoeducation. In addition to education about the long and short-term effects of alcohol, group therapy sessions include CBT and behavioral modification techniques.

Though the facility doesn’t cater to those with co-occurring disorders, it does offer referrals for dual diagnosis support and medication management services. BHCA employs psychologists, CADCs, LPCs and LCSWs.


Aside from the above, BHCA offers cutting edge surgical procedures to treat depression and substance abuse using NeuroStar Rapid Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and naltrexone implants.

In Summary

The doctors and counselors at Behavioral Health Care Associates offer alternative and advanced treatment methods that are often difficult to find at other treatment facilities. The focus is mainly on the detox process rather than the counseling aspect of treatment, but Behavioral Health Care Associates still provides a range of affordable therapy options to clients in the Chicago area.
