The Link and Option Center, Inc. was founded in 1995 as a non-profit organization with the intent to provide education, counseling and prevention services to the Markham, Illinois community. Just a half-hour outside of Chicago, the substance abuse treatment program offered by Link and Option has both a basic outpatient track and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
Treatment and Staff
The basic outpatient program and the IOP incorporate the same treatment components, but the regular outpatient program consists of fewer than 10 hours of treatment per week, while the IOP requires 10 hours or more. Before being enrolled into either program, clients are first evaluated and assessed to develop an individualized treatment plan. Each unique plan determines the type of treatment, frequency and duration. All plans are subject to change as the client progresses through treatment.
Treatment consists of group therapy that includes education groups, life skills, family education, self-help, skills maintenance, re-socialization, crisis intervention, mentoring, individual therapy and a continuing care plan. The groups are held at various times throughout the week, while individual therapy is scheduled independently.
The 12-steps are not integrated into the program, however, clients are strongly encouraged to attend local meetings in support of their outpatient treatment.
Aftercare is available and personalized to the needs of the client once they have completed treatment.
In addition to the substance abuse treatment programs, Link and Option also offers a range of other services and programs to clients and the broader community. Other services include a DUI program, general mental health counseling, anger management, a reentry program, workforce development, case management, advocacy services, health services and emergency services.
Outpatient substance abuse treatment at the Link and Option Center, Inc. are ideal for those seeking a highly individualized program with numerous treatment options. Through evidence-based practices, aftercare and sober skill development, clients leave the program with a stable grasp on recovery and sobriety.
