“This place isn’t like other rehabs or methadone clinics I’ve been…It’s really, truly one-on-one attention that makes you want to stay sober.”
Stop opioid withdrawals and cravings as detox or long-term maintenance
Feel better today with no rushed staff, long lines or arbitrary rules
Non-addictive monthly shot to stop alcohol and drug cravings
Get intensive therapy that’s as effective as rehab while living at home
Talk honestly with a Master’s-level therapist who truly cares about you

In addiction, it’s impossible to “just stop”. If you already know the treatment option you want, great. Get started right away. If not, get one-on-one advice at your first appointment.
You have access to anything you need to feel truly happy again — and a team that cares more than any other addiction treatment center you’ve tried before.
The methods are backed by published research and more than 3,550 success stories — but the real “secret” is that the doctors and therapists actually listen without an agenda.
This place isn’t like rehab or other methadone clinics that are medication factories. It’s really, truly one-on-one attention that makes you want to stay sober.
This clinic is 100% welcoming and will help you feel better day one!!!! There is literally no reason not to give it a go. It’s not scary or annoying at all.
The IOP counselors work with you and care about your treatment and your 100% recovery. I tried an IOP near me when I moved, but now use public transport that takes two hours to get here. That’s how much I love this IOP program!!
This is the first time I had a plan with both medication and counseling. I feel supported and in charge of my treatment.
The staff actually listens and does what’s best for each person.
They are responsive with methadone dosing changes and concerns. They do a great job with counseling which was a first for me at a methadone clinic. I never had to wait. And, they never acted like I did something bad, even when I did use drugs.
Symetria has been amazing at every interaction. I’m a person first here, not a label. Appointments are on my schedule. I definitely recommend these Suboxone doctors.
I walked in depressed and unhealthy in every way. The counselors, doctors and every single person at this addiction treatment center truly care WITHOUT JUDGEMENT. I am a happy and healthy 18 months sober today!

Great! You’re in the right place.
Unlike most Suboxone doctors, the pharmacy here is on-site to stop withdrawal symptoms right away and avoid issues with public pharmacies refusing to fill a Suboxone prescription.
As you get to know (and trust) us, you may find it comforting to know the therapy services are there too. But, you’re in control of your treatment here.
For now, the Chicago clinic is able to accept new Suboxone patients with appointments often within 24 hours.
Methadone is a life-saving medication for people who may not have been successful with Suboxone or who have had success with methadone in the past. The medication can also be a good choice for those that also suffer from chronic pain or need extra accountability.
But…you don’t have to commit to methadone before you come in. Unlike other methadone clinics, our doctors offer all medication options.ⓘ They can help you decide between FDA-approved Suboxone, methadone or Vivitrol, as well as off-label and mental health medications. And, you can change medications if something is not working for you.
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) has a few layers, but the core is group therapy. Most people aren’t excited by the idea of being in a group for therapy. Try it anyway. You’ll see for yourself why it works, even if you’ve tried group therapy before.
This Chicago IOP is not 12-step. Our IOP program is led by a Masters-level clinical therapist. You work through core issues like motivation, preventing negative thought patterns, relapse prevention and establishing or rebuilding healthy relationships. You also work through underlying issues like depression or anxiety. Groups are small and personal.
At Symetria, you have access to unlimited one-on-one therapy too. The private sessions ensure you get support whenever you need it and can help you work through sensitive issues.
Monthly Vivitrol injections can be game-changing for alcohol issues.
The medication stabilizes the brain to eliminate alcohol cravings and overall calms the mental chaos of alcohol addiction. If alcohol is consumed while using Vivitrol, patients experience the hangover without feeling the high. This eliminates the short-term psychological reward and associates alcohol as an entirely negative experience.
There is genetic testing we often do upfront to gauge whether Vivitol is likely to be helpful for a specific person. Patients without an OPRM-1 gene mutation tend to respond better to Vivitrol treatment.
Overall, there is little downside to trying Vivitrol. The medication is non-addictive, covered by insurance and doesn’t require anything outside of a monthly doctor’s appointment.
Treatment here is in-network with insurance companies, which keeps your cost (if any) as low as possible.
This Chicago rehab clinic can’t accept Medicaid (yet), but is in-network with Medicare and nearly all private insurance companies including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Aetna, Cigna / Evernorth, Humana, Magellan, Multiplan, United Healthcare / Optum and many more. Generally, outpatient rehab is much more affordable than inpatient rehab or a hospital stay.
