For Referring Agencies

We're here for you, too

The Youth Center at Northwest Community Hospital is a substance abuse facility for adolescents ages 12 to 18. Founded in 2004, we are our area’s only private residential treatment center affiliated with a hospital. Located right here in the northwest suburban Chicago area, we provide the complete range of services needed to properly deal with addiction problems. With medical and nursing support on-call 24/7, we can competently address any and all medical problems our patients may require.

Whether you call us directly or recommend us to the parents or guardians involved, you can be assured that we can help. We are fully equipped to handle a broad range of both alcohol and drug-related addictions. Our initial patient assessment is free. If required, we also provide drug screening.

We are committed to a collaborative effort

Working with your input and our assessment findings, we recommend the best course of treatment:

  1. Residential Treatment
  2. Day Treatment (partial hospitalization)
  3. Intensive Outpatient Treatment

During the course of treatment, you will receive continuing reports to keep you involved and up-to-date. We believe that working together provides the best chances for patient success.

We have helped hundreds of young adults overcome their addictions

At the Youth Center, families work with our on-staff psychiatrist as well as our interdisciplinary team of licensed and certified social workers, clinical counselors, addiction counselors and substance abuse technicians. In addition, in-patients have access to nursing support on-call 24/7.

We invite you to visit our facilities and learn more about our various programs and services. Feel free to call us at any time at 847.618.2700.
