IU Health Addiction Treatment & Recovery Center

Important COVID-19 Notice:

We are taking careful steps for everyone’s safety at your next visit. Learn more at our COVID-19 Resource Center:

At IU Health, we offer full services for you or loved one for addiction treatment and recovery. At this center at IU Health Bloomington Hospital, we help adults (18 and older) with a structured therapy program.

This structured program allows you to go to school or work. You'll also still be connected to your support system of family and friends.

Our Approach

Our goal is to help you break the cycle of addiction. We will support you or your loved one in developing the tools needed to build a satisfying life.

Our goal goes beyond just abstinence from your substance use disorder. We want to improve the patient and family’s quality of life in every domain. This includes work, school and personal relationships.

Our Services

Once you are enrolled in the program patients engage in a variety of services that may include group therapy, individual therapy, education, recovery coaching and skills training.

Your clinician will partner with you to help reach your therapy goals. Whether it is getting back to work, rebuilding relationships or improving overall quality of life, your counselor can help to walk alongside you in your process of healing.

Therapy Services

You will partner with your clinician to determine the appropriate level of care. Patients may attend individual therapy on a weekly or monthly basis or enroll in our Intensive Outpatient Treatment program (IOT).

Our IOT program consists of a minimum of 9 hours of services Monday-Friday for approximately 6-8 weeks. Patients are offered a clinical treatment team, including therapists, recovery coaches and medical staff. Aftercare is available for patients on an ongoing basis, even after program completion.

Hands-On Care

You will meet your treatment team upon enrollment with clinical services. Here at the IU Health Bloomington Addiction Treatment & Recovery Center, we believe in whole person wellness: in order to heal we must treat the mind, body and spirit.

During active addiction, many patients find themselves experiencing new, worsening, or unaddressed health concerns. People with substance use disorders often have other disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorders. Our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners will help address both your substance use and psychiatric disorders.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) refers to the use of medications such as Suboxone, Vivitrol and naltrexone, in combination with counseling and other behavioral services, for the treatment of substance use disorders.

Here at IU Health, we can offer the support of these medications to as an adjunct to your recovery process during your engagement with our therapeutic services.

If you are interested in this type of care or support, please talk to the medical staff on site to find the best option for you.
