Alumni praise the Council for its attentive staff and multiple treatment modalities, including specific programs for addressing trauma and mental health issues. Because I attend a lot of AA meetings I have come across lots of alumni of The Council. This is why when I relapsed I sought them out. An experience that has changed my thinking profoundly. Thanks Guys for loving me and teaching me.
The Councils “tough-love” approach doesn’t leave out the “love”—or the “tough.” A traditional rehab with a solid 50-year track record, The Council takes clients’ sobriety as seriously as its discipline.
The South Suburban Council came to our High School free of charge and talked with our entire team about vaping. It was very informative. That someone would take time out of their lives to do something like this is amazing to me and all of us said the same thing. Thank You Council for caring!!
You are never alone and don't have to be alone. Many individuals suffering from addiction or alcoholism suffer from stigmatization and are preoccupied with being stigmatized prior to receiving treatment. As soon as you walk through the door at The Council, you will realize that all their staff are non-judgmental, compassionate, and are there to help you every step of the way. You will come to find out that you are not the only one that struggles with addiction and also suffering from an array of other life problems. You will heal, find support, and develop a clear pathway to obtain the quality of life you envision. Most importantly, you will learn that you are not alone in you addiction, and never have to be alone when dealing with your addiction and life problems.
The therapists at The South Suburban Council work with you at the "core emotional level to uncover the central issues driving the addiction or co-occurring disorder," all while you recuperate. Take advantage of the downtime and recover your mind and body. I had beaten my body up so badly that when I finally slept naturally I really knocked out. Woke feeling "new".
The South Suburban Council has dedicated teams providing comprehensive addiction treatment in a structured and therapeutic setting, with plenty of recreation during downtime. Alumni appreciate the sense of community and understanding staff. Because of that I chose them for my treatment. It was a great decision!
My experience at South Suburban was very much needed and welcomed. I already knew what wasn’t working for me and realized I wanted to understand myself better. The greatest achievement obtained was that of freedom. It’s not about how horrible the food is, waking up at 6am, not being able to smoke or talk to females. For me it’s about taking charge of my life, learning control and self discipline, being responsible and gaining independence. Thank you for caring enough to show me how to get there.
It's all about change and The Council not only taught me that they showed me how to execute that. Change is hard, it's scary but the prior life was so much harder and so much scarier. Thank You!!
The South Suburban Council campus offers a serene, comfortable environment combined with cutting-edge clinical treatment for not only substance abuse but mental health issues as well. It became my home and I felt loved for the first time in a long time. I hear they may be opening up a recovery home soon!
The ultimate goal of treatment at The South Suburban Council is not just sobriety, but to teach clients how to “live with purpose and passion.” According to alumni, they’re succeeding. My stay transformed my life!
