    Like most of Illinois, Lake County has struggled with an increase in drug-related overdose deaths and hospitalization in the last decade. Excessive alcohol consumption is also a pressing community concern.

    Waukegan Alcohol & Drug Treatment Programs

    There are many addiction treatment programs available in and near the city of Waukegan. Your personalized treatment plan may include one or more of the following substance abuse treatment services:

    • medically monitored detox
    • residential rehab
    • intensive outpatient program
    • partial hospitalization program
    • medication-assisted treatment
    • mental health services
    • continuing care

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Medical detoxification is a short-term, pre-treatment requirement for many people with addiction. This program can help you get through the withdrawal process safely and prepare your mind and body for transitioning to inpatient or outpatient rehab. 

    Inpatient/Residential Drug Rehab

    In residential treatment, you’ll have access to certified addiction treatment professionals all the time. You’ll live at the rehab facility and, depending on your needs, your addiction treatment program may include:

    Outpatient Treatment

    If you can’t live in a rehab facility for residential treatment, an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program may be a good fit for your needs. 

    These programs offer more flexible treatment scheduling and allow you to return home after every session. Individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy are likely included in these types of treatment. Learn more about outpatient treatment programs.

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is used to combat opioid and alcohol addiction. If you use either of these substances, you may need special medications to ease your body off of them, which a MAT program provides. 

    These programs also likely include behavioral therapy and/or counseling. 


    When your core rehab program ends, transitioning to an aftercare program can help support long-term addiction recovery. Aftercare can take place in a sober-living home, a support group, an alumni group, and it also includes other forms of relapse-prevention planning. 

    Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Waukegan, Illinois

    Your private or state-funded insurance plan can help you pay for addiction treatment. To learn more about using your public or private insurance plan to cover the cost of addiction rehab, you can:

    • call your insurance provider
    • contact addiction treatment facilities directly to verify coverage
    • read through your policy to understand your coverage

    If you don’t have healthcare insurance, a non-profit rehab facility may be able to offer payment assistance.
