Online therapy for Addiction Treatment in Illinois
You experience memory loss or blackouts after drinking too much. Your family expresses their concerns about your drinking. Or, pressure you to abstain completely from alcohol.
Our team of online therapists includes specialists who can help with substance misuse and addictions with a “harm reduction” approach. This aims at moderation rather than total abstinence. We believe in helping you gain control over your drinking by learning coping skills and strategies. This is designed to help you develop a sense of autonomy and empowerment. And, to free you from dependence on alcohol or other chemical substances.

Is online therapy effective?
Online therapy may not be the best option for everyone. For this reason, we suggest doing a little research. Think about what you're looking for in a therapist. Can that be provided for you through an online platform? Research shows that online therapy is often just as effective as in-person therapy. And, you certainly can’t beat the convenience of showing up for your appointments in sweatpants!
