Illinois Family Resource Center is a statewide project funded for the purpose of ensuring family involvement and input in all aspects of adolescent and young adult care within the Illinois substance use disorder (SUD's) treatment system. Through the enhancement and dissemination of evidence-based SUD's treatment and recovery support services, adolescents, young adults and their families are provided support in their recovery journey at the practice and program level.
To support family involvement that is focused, goal-driven and productive at the policy level, Illinois Family Resource Center seeks family member's feedback that may be shared through collaborative work with the Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery, and the substance use disorder and mental health provider community.
In addition, Illinois Family Resource Center offers this website to provide current research and education to youth, young adults, family members and human service providers regarding issues related to substance use disorders and living a healthy lifestyle. We also offer links to SUD's treatment services throughout Illinois.
