Above and Beyond family Recovery Center

  • 2 people are interested
Street View Squared

Are you interested in pipes? Does water float your boat? We are looking for humans with heart (and the stomach) who are interested in giving us their free time to help us fix our messed up plumbing.

We are gushing to have found your interest! Gushing WATER!!! We have lots of water going where water is not supposed to go (some of it not completely clear water) and no water where it is supposed to be. Please help us reverse this paradox.

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.

The bottom line is that you will be giving without any expectation of return and that is where the most profound miracles happen. We fix people with addiction problems, not plumbing, so by you helping us, we can help others.

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