Above and Beyond family Recovery Center

  • 67 people are interested
Executive Director Dan

Above and Beyond Family Recovery Center provides FREE counseling service to the most under-served substance abusing populations in Chicagoland. We are an outpatient, "walk-in", behavioral addiction treatment center whose clients come with companion problems like mental illness, homelessness, unemployment, and previous criminal convictions. Most of them do not know why they exist and have horrid, untrue self-images which we do our best to dispel by helping them uncover their purpose and meaning in life, stop hating on themselves, and begin trying to get rid of their addictions so they can rejoin humanity. They all want this outcome, but have never had the tools that we put into their brain's repertoire.

We have 22+ process groups weekly, with such innovative topics as: Improv Therapy, Yoga, Acupuncture, Sobriety for Seniors, REBT, Rage Reduction, Uncovering Purpose and Meaning, Learning to Love Yourself, Trauma, EFT, and many many more. All of these have therapeutic roots in addiction treatment and we also help find housing and employment.

We are looking for humans with hearts, who are interested in giving of their free time (whenever that is) to assist us in sharing their abundance of compassion, non-judgmental attitudes and interactions, and can-do spirits with these people that we love.

This one, particular opportunity is one without definition. It yet has to be designed, because it will be built around the skill sets and spiritual locomotion of the person who has been inspired by what is written here. We can custom design an opportunity that fits who you are and/or who you aspire to become. The bottom line is that you will be giving without any expectation of return and that is where the most profound miracles happen.

We see them every day! Join us, won't you?
