Advocate's Addiction Treatment Program uses a 12-step program which helped thousands overcome drug and alcohol addiction.

The AMG Addiction Treatment Program’s medically-based approach to addiction services is widely-used and accepted to be the most effective in treating the chemically dependent individual and is the cornerstone of our service philosophy.

Our mission is to help the individual reclaim all aspects of a balanced life—physical, emotional, social and spiritual—and return to society empowered to make healthy and constructive decisions without the use of alcohol, drugs or other addictive substances.

If you need help with an addiction, or if someone you care for needs help, call us 24 hours a day at 847.795.3921. This is completely confidential.
