“I thought I was just coming here for meds to stop feeling sick. I never expected them to be so genuinely concerned. The whole team was understanding and empathetic in a way I never experienced in seven other treatment attempts.”

Whether you’re transferring from rehab, looking for immediate medication to stop feeling sick or reaching out for the very first time, the team here meets you where you’re at.
Not only are patients twice as likely to stay sober according to Harvard statisticians, but they also consistently rate their experience highly with a 4.9 Google review rating.
I thought I was just coming for Suboxone to feel better. I never expected them to be so genuinely concerned. The whole team was understanding and empathetic in a way I never experienced in seven other treatment attempts.
The staff actually care about getting people over their addiction. If you relapse, they don’t kick you out. They were friendly and helpful from day one.
I had no clue what I was getting into when I first started my recovery, but coming here makes it a lot easier. The entire team has been awesome!
Greg is the best IOP counselor! Their program actually works. They have amazing nurses too. They tailor-fit the program to the individual. I am very happy with my results.
I have been to questionable methadone clinics, but Symetria is 5 stars.
They actually care about their patients. We are like a small family. It’s more than just methadone. They also offer counseling and therapy here.
The focus is always on you and your goals. It’s the longest I’ve ever stayed sober.
Other treatment centers gave me a cookie-cutter treatment plan and kicked me out when I slipped up. It’s unrealistic, and I thought treatment doesn’t work for me until I came here.
The Vernon Hills clinic is at the corner of Butterfield Road and West Townline Road near Cynthia T. Peterson Park. The nearest pace bus stop is the Hawthorn Mall. An Uber health ride can be arranged from the bus stop or anywhere nearby. Patients come from across Lake County including Waukegan and North Shore communities like Lake Forest and Highland Park on Lake Michigan. This is the best Symetria location for the north Chicago suburbs, though there are other clinics throughout the collar counties.

The benefit of the Vernon Hills clinic is that you don’t have to know everything about addiction treatment upfront. You can talk through which medication is a better fit for your situation with a doctor that actually listens. You can even switch between medications if it’s not working for you. Either way, you get immediate relief from painful withdrawal symptoms and stabilize your mind to think clearer.
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. Revia and Depade are naltrexone in pill form that isn’t usually recommended. Asking someone struggling with drugs or alcohol to take a daily pill that will make using alcohol or drugs unpleasant isn’t setting them up for success. There is a clinical trial in Europe testing an implantable version of Naltrexone, but this is not yet available in the U.S.
Fair question. Most people here use health insurance. IOP is covered by most insurance policies, including BCBS of Illinois, Cigna, Aetna, Humana, Medicare, etc. Your cost with insurance depends on your deductible. Usually, this is a low amount, certainly more affordable than inpatient rehab. Sometimes patients owe nothing. We will check your specific policy and let you know any costs before you come in. Let’s talk about what’s going on and what you’re looking for, so you can get clear upfront pricing. Call now (we’re not scary).
