ABOUT ROSECRANCE HARRISON CAMPUS
Founded as an orphanage for boys in 1916, Rosecrance is a private not-for-profit organization that now operates more than 40 behavioral health facilities in Chicago and Northern Illinois, Wisconsin, and Iowa. The Harrison Campus, in a suburban neighborhood five miles southeast of central Rockford, northern Illinois, offers medically monitored detox, residential treatment, outpatient care, and transitional living facilities for adult men and women struggling with substance abuse issues and co-occurring issues.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Residential treatment typically lasts 30 to 45 days, and the center also offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP) that runs five days a week, and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that meets in the daytime or the evening, to suit a variety of schedules.
Programs are multidisciplinary, using a variety of approaches, including hands-on learning, educational groups, discussion groups, therapeutic processing groups, spirituality sessions, and 12-Step education. The center offers holistic options including art therapy.
Dually diagnosed clients are treated on a dedicated 14-bed unit. This unit is particularly well equipped to treat individuals struggling with PTSD, and gives priority admission to veterans.
The center also operates a transitional living facility, across the street from the main campus so that residents still have easy access to the adult treatment program. Transitional living facilities are open to adults and women with children.
The treatment team includes doctors, nurses, and master’s level counselors. The 47 individuals polled by Best-rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it an average rating of 3.88 out of five stars.
