Ardent helped us to understand that it's not about who's right or who's wrong. We don't have to agree to agree, but we have to agree to communicate.

Alcohol & Drug Addiction Counseling in Chicago

Ardent Counseling Center offers substance abuse counseling to help you get the problem under control and start focusing on your life goals in a positive and nurturing environment.

We do not believe drugs and alcohol are the problem. Instead, it is your relationship to the substance that distinguishes recreational use from problematic addiction. Many people who use drugs or alcohol do not have a substance abuse problem. Using drugs is only a disorder if the drug use causes your life to become unmanageable. Thus, treatment focuses on helping you understand your relationship to your substance of choice, what led to its use, and ways to make your life not only manageable, but fulfilling.

Fight Alcohol and/or Drug Addiction, Call (888) 870-1775(888) 870-1775

Using substances can often be an isolating and shameful experience. Many feel ashamed of their substance use, and isolate themselves from avenues of support, including treatment. We strive to create a nurturing, non-shaming environment that focuses on strengths rather than weaknesses, in a framework of harm reduction and supportive growth.

Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you manage your substance use today.

We look forward to working with you.
