You're Not Alone
Looking for Addiction Experts in Lake County That Truly Listen?
Most other treatment centers give you a cookie-cutter treatment plan and kick you to the curb if you slip up. It’s unrealistic and why too many people think treatment “doesn’t work” for them.
The doctors and therapists at the Vernon Hills clinic actually listen to you. They go above and beyond to support you. (Like when they helped a patient film audition tapes and he landed a job on Chicago PD).

Assuming you’re located in Lake County, the answer is overwhelming yet. Symetria is not just another MAT clinic. The success rates here are so much higher because we work with you one-on-one.
In the beginning, get your meds right away. As you start to feel better, we tackle anything holding you back together, especially if there’s a relapse. Whether it’s a mental health issue (like depression, PTSD, stress management, family conflict) or a gap in your relapse plan, you’re guaranteed to learn to feel happy again without drugs or alcohol if you keep showing up here.
Vivitrol is Naltrexone given as a shot once a month by a medical professional. Since it is non-addictive, it’s a great option to reduce cravings for any substance use – especially alcohol, meth and those in early opioid addiction. Vivitrol is covered by most health insurance plans like BCBS IL.
Revia and Depade are naltrexone in pill form that aren’t usually recommended. Asking someone struggling with drugs or alcohol to take a daily pill that will make using alcohol or drugs unpleasant is setting them up for success. A doctor in Europe is testing an implantable version of Naltrexone that is currently in clinical trial, but not yet available in the U.S.
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.

Yes, insurance covers all treatment programs here, including IOP. In fact, we’re distinguished as the top provider in the state for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBS IL) and also in-network with the other major insurances companies like Magellan, Humana, Aetna, Optum / United Healthcare and more.

The Lake County coroner cites 94 overdose fatalities last year. Every city in Lake County experienced at least one fatal overdose. The highest numbers were in Waukegan (20 deaths), followed by Zion (10 deaths). Fentanyl was involved in the majority of cases. Alcohol was involved nearly 25% of the time.
Addiction thrives in isolation. Your attendance here is fully protected by HIPPA, but consider why you’re keeping treatment a secret. Getting positive support and accountability from loved ones can be game-changing. You can invite them to family therapy sessions here to work through things with the help of a therapist.
