Working hard to find you the best treatment available
Formerly known as Fox Valley Special Consultation, Care Clinics was approached in early 1981 by Kendall County Human Services to establish a DUI service for Kendall County. The rationale for this was the past experience of the Care Clinics founder in facilitating an alcohol related offender's program at Sinnissippi Mental Health Center and the Care Clinics executive director's law enforcement experience and expertise at the local and county level.
Soon after establishing relations with Kendall County, Care Clinics became involved with Task Forces with the Illinois Secretary of State and the Kane County State's Attorney's office to improve services to DUI offenders. Care Clinics was also requested to provide alcohol and drug services for the Illinois Department of Corrections.
In addition to the above, Care Clinics has also provided alcohol and drug services at the United States Army Corps of Engineers offices located in Rock Island, IL and Des Moines, IA, as well as the Cape and Islands Emergency Medical Services System located in Hyannis, Massachusetts.
Over the years, Care Clinics has been able to consistently adapt to the changing needs of the court with updated clinical approaches. Care Clinics has been providing assessments, substance abuse education, and substance abuse and dependency treatment to clients referred to by the probation departments of Cook, DuPage, DeKalb, Kane, Kendall, and Will counties for close to three decades and has an excellent professional reputation among the referring probation departments. Care Clinics has accepted referrals from other in-state as well as out-of-state counties, probation departments, colleges, employers, and other treatment agencies. These referrals were for crimes committed under the influence, for possession, drug trafficking, as well as other crimes that were not substance related, and substance abuse problems which were not criminally related.
Care Clinics is licensed through the Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) for substance abuse evaluations, substance abuse education, Level I (outpatient) and Level II (intensive outpatient) substance abuse treatment.
Care Clinics has previously provided services at jails and IDOC work release programs. At present, we provide individual, group, family, marital, grief and loss, mental illness substance abuse (MISA), and stress management services and treatment.
Prior to the year 2000, the emphasis on treating substance abusing and dependent clients has been primarily psycho-educational. However, since the 2000 DuPage County Probation workshop on evidence based practice, Care Clinics has strived to adapt and include aspects of evidence based practice with a psycho-educational approach to treating clients. Evidence Based Practice (EBP) refers to a decision making process that integrated the best available research, clinician expertise, and client characteristics. EBP is an approach to treatment, rather than a specific treatment which allows the client to benefit greatly from such an approach.
