Redefining Recovery

Chicago, IL   |  www.anb.today

Mission

The vision of Above and Beyond is to build an individualized treatment experience that is available to anyone in need regardless of their economic status. Our clients and clinicians create therapeutic alliances that design and execute personalized programs of recovery that co-exist side-by-side personal development and growth goals. We believe that recovery is a process that requires meeting individuals where they are at as well as addressing their environmental life circumstances such as: education, employment readiness, interpersonal relationships, and social reintegrative abilities and activities.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Intensive Outpatient

Process groups are conducted by creating a safe place where trust can be built using Motivational Interviewing techniques to practice Cognitive Behavioral Education in a manner that can be applied to the case studies that are introduced in confidence.

Population(s) Served
Health

Taught by trauma-certified yoga instructors, this free class helps our populations get back in touch with their bodies. It is conducted in street clothing and includes meditation, stretching, and basic yoga movements.

Population(s) Served

Process groups are conducted by creating a safe place where trust can be built using Motivational Interviewing techniques to practice Cognitive Behavioral Education in a manner that can be applied to the case studies that are introduced in confidence. Our outpatient groups run 25 hours although patients are encouraged to continue after the hours are depleted.

Population(s) Served

Taught by a student of Albert Ellis (the father of CBT), this group helps our populations to think before they act. Being prone to succumbing to irrational thinking, this group helps redirect their decision making to more rational alternatives.

Population(s) Served

A centerpiece of our therapeutic alliance with our patients, we have 2 two-and-a-half hour group sessions twice a week. The first hour is didactic using the seekingsafety.org curriculum while the last hour-and-a-half is process and unpacking.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We seek to provide the highest level of evidence-based addiction and mental health care possible to those of us with the least resources; the homeless, the forlorn, the unseen, the abused, the vulnerable, and the lost, i.e. those of us with the least assets. We are dedicated solely to their long-term, sustainable drug-reduced or drug-free reunification, as contributing members, with society-at-large.

The odds of accomplishing our mission and associated goals start with developing strong therapeutic bonds with our constituents and the offering of a wide variety of evidence-based solutions which are not otherwise available to our census but through us and our linkage partners (currently numbering 30+).

We have an elegant office that puts our clients in the middle of a luxurious environment that they are not used to, in fact, many times have never been in. This honors them and they feel it deeply. We have expansion abilities in our flagship location and intention of taking our unique programs city and nation-wide when our processes have been perfected.

We have accomplished putting the most unique, innovative, evidence-based, harm-reduction addiction center in the middle of one of Chicago's worst neighborhoods with reception and support that has been overwhelming. We have yet to perfect our processes and put them into a format which can be transported to other needy locations in the city and nation. This lies ahead for us and is a formidable but exciting future that we all look forward to!
