Protecting Those Who Protect Us
We are pleased to announce the opening of the inpatient and outpatient addictions center dedicated to law enforcement officers (LEOs). Saint Michael's House is an exclusive and highly confidential destination program focused on the treatment of those who serve and protect local and statewide communities within Illinois.
Understanding the stigma associated with seeking addiction treatment, Saint Michael's House provides confidential addiction treatment services in a discreet and exclusive location. We have partnered with local law enforcement leaders to understand and address LEOS who are experiencing addiction issues.
Saint Michael's House will be a place of comfort and healing providing a path to recovery and overall health that promotes officer wellness in a secure and confidential environment.
