Mathers Clinic Receives $500,000 Grant to Open Center in Kendall County

Mathers Clinic in Crystal Lake, has been awarded a $500,000 grant to open an opiate treatment program in Oswego, Illinois. They will be partnering with Kendall County Mental Health Board using the successful format they have used working with the Kane County Mental Health Council, Lake County Community Center, McHenry County Mental Health Board and Winnebago County Mental Health Board. In 2013, Mathers Recovery opened their Elgin and Fox Lake treatment centers.

Mathers Clinic offered facts and statistics to reinforce that a treatment center was badly needed in Kendall County. Information provided within the grant application stated that, “According to the 2017 Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Opioid Data Dashboard, Kendall County showed there were 37 overdoses in the Oswego area, 18 overdoses in the Montgomery area and 15 overdoses in the Yorkville area. The most overdose fatalities occurred between the ages of 25 to 34. From 2016 to 2017, the number of non-fatal overdoses has increased for all opiates, including heroin. Kendall county statistics show this is not gender specific as it affects both equally.” As recipients of the grant, they will open Mathers Recovery in Oswego. The exact location has not been released at this time. For further updates about the Oswego treatment center, please go to themathersrecovery.com/oswego.

Mathers Clinic & Mathers Recovery Is Currently Looking For The Perfect Location In Oswego To Better Serve Kendall County & The Surrounding Areas.

Mathers Recovery is one of the largest opiate and private mental health centers in Northern Illinois. Their medical and clinical staff provides psychiatric services for co-existing conditions, substance abuse counseling and support services. The program is designed to offer encouragement, support the recovery and promote the physical and emotional well-being of clients served. The goal of the treatment is to enhance the client’s life, by reducing symptoms and needs, building resilience, restore and/or improve functioning and support the clients’ integration within the community.

Their successful outpatient treatment program does not require hospitalization or rehabilitation check in. Bringing the treatment to their client, allows the client to go about their everyday routine. They can continue living at home, going to work and spending time with those who love and support them.

Mathers Recovery has highly trained professionals who specialize in drug addiction treatment and the underlying issue that may contribute in dependency problems. Those suffering from opiate addiction, will have medication assistance options such as: methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone (Vivitrol). Clients will benefit from many of the services that Mathers Recovery offers but not limited to: substance abuse counseling, intensive outpatient programs, psychosocial rehabilitation, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement interviews, contingency management and supportive services. The outpatient program serves both clients and their families/friends by offering education about opioid use disorders, prevention and management of substance relapse.
