Treatment at De Paul is based on the belief that chemical dependency develops within the context of an individual’s heredity and environment. We view addiction as a complex, chronic and treatable illness. We believe that all individuals have within them innate health and the capacity to recover.

This place is basically a cross between "prison and high school" that is in quotes because it was said by a fellow former client. I had to agree. There are 52 beds for men and 38 of them probably have...

Strict program, People get kicked out for things that aren't always fair. At first I didn't think they were doing much for me but when I got out I realized that tha t basically programmed me to be sob...

Areas of Focus
Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
