I’ve been clean 2 years. It wouldn’t be possible without the team from Symetria. They treat you like a real person. They support you — hold your hand when need it and give you that gentle push when you need it.
Other Subxone clinics are unscientific, even harmful. I’m the ‘difficult’ patient at these places. But, if you come here, you will be happy.
Symetria has a way of making me want to be sober. The staff at other methadone clinics like Radius are difficult and unhelpful, not like here.
This rehab clinic is the best place you can go to to get sober. The tools and therapies are unparalleled. The people are so kind and considerate. They are the only reason I am still alive, and I am in no way exaggerating.
The IOP sessions are excellent, unlike any other. I highly recommend this place!
When I say Symetria helped me get my life back, it’s an understatement. It’s been years without one relapse! From the initial intake to the medical and counseling, I was treated with compassion, kindness, honesty and encouragement.
This clinic always acted in my best interest. And, not in a ‘tough love’ kind of way…They did what was really best for me.
Palos Heights is one of three Symetria locations in Cook County. The clinic is at the corner of W. College Dr. and S. Harlem Ave. near Trinity Christian College between the cities of Oak Lawn and Orland Park. If this location is near you now, great! If not, this is still the best methadone, Suboxone and IOP program for the southwest suburbs of Chicago and cities like Alsip, Midlothian, Chicago Ridge, Worth and Oak Forest, IL. The nearest Pace bus station is Harlem Ave & 119th St / College Dr.

Expect a warm welcome, no judgment and an addiction treatment team that cares more than any other treatment center you’ve tried before.
Come in to start the program you want right away (Suboxone, Methadone or IOP). From there, we’ll work together to get you any support you want to stay healthy.
Suboxone (Buprenorphine with Naloxone) is the recommended medication for most opiate addiction patients. It is only a partial antagonist, which satisfies the receptors in the brain craving heroin or pain pills, but without the same “high” or risk.
Methadone is preferred by those who have had success with Methadone in the past or need long-term daily accountability. It works in the same way as Suboxone to block opioid receptors but is a full opioid agonist.
See article: Suboxone vs Methadone
Suboxone is a partial opioid that fits enough to satisfy opioid receptors in the brain, but not enough to trigger a high. Vivitrol doesn’t fit into opioid receptors at all, instead blocks them off to stop cravings and prevent a high if substances are used.
Suboxone is a good consideration for patients struggling with opioids that are not detoxed. Vivitrol can only be given after detox to help with cravings.
Vivitrol is a first-choice consideration for patients struggling with alcohol or meth addictions. It is non-addictive and given as a monthly shot.
See article: Vivitrol vs. Suboxone
IOP is a great option if you’re just noticing an addiction issue. Or, if you’re coming directly from inpatient rehab, relapsed after months/years of sobriety or if you’ve been in and out of several treatment programs.
Inpatient rehab is a good option if you’re struggling with more severe co-occurring issues (like psychosis or active suicidal thoughts) or if you’re already trying an IOP program but are not finding success.
