Our experience has taught us that every case is unique. 

The Assessment Process is the foundation for developing a plan specifically for you based on your strengths, needs, and preferences from a biopsychosocial perspective. 

We want individuals, families, and loved ones looking for help to know that they are not alone.  Our Team at Fox Valley are honored to be a starting point to the healing process.


We first want to offer our support and acknowledge the courage it takes to pick up the phone and reach out for help. 

The assessment process is an opportunity for our multidisciplinary team to gather a comprehensive look at past, current, and future challenges a potential client has or may face in trying to treat their addiction.

Our Assessment Process...

*Share with us your experience.

*Help us to understand your individual needs.

*Explore the options that best meet those needs.

*Discuss your opportunities for change and grow their own relationships and family system.

 *The late onset of substance abuse by a parent when there are adult children creates another paradigm of family relationship issues. 

Case Management, Aftercare , Family Work, Professional Interventions Emerging Adults Ages 18-28

Fox Valley Substance Abuse Treatment Program for Emerging Adults serves young adults ages 18-28. 

We strive to be a "Real Time Treatment Model" with heavy emphasis to engage the entire Family System.

18-28 year-old Emerging  Adults, like teens, have their own unique set of needs that must be addressed to be successful.

 Because they are adults in age, many drug and alcohol abuse rehab programs add these emerging adults into treatment groups for adults, where these emerging adults are younger than the average age and cannot relate with the experiences of older adults.

 Our outpatient substance treatment programs are specialized for emerging adults in this age group and focused on helping young adults manage the unique set of problems they are faced when enrolling in our program.


A Professional Intervention requires a fine balance of a delicate and also firm approach to the individual. Intervening on a loved ones addiction can feel overwhelming for all involved. Questions often arise about the most effective way to approach the situation and many give their opinion on what’s best.  This often results in feelings of frustration, anxiety, fear, anger, sadness, and stress.  This is not the intention of a successful intervention on any illness.


What we at Fox Valley hope to offer through our intervention services is support, guidance, education, and inclusion.  We want to support everyone impacted by addiction and offer guidance and services to all in need of healing.  Secondly, we want to educate the support system on the disease of addiction and empower personal healing through further understanding of the illness.  Finally, we want to include the addict in the intervention process.

All too often everyone is trying to figure out the best way to treat the addict without involving the primary sufferer. We feel that this step is important.  If help is continued to be refused then further facilitation on setting healthy boundaries will be discussed.

 It is important to remember that many interventions are about supporting an individual’s health and well being, and no longer supporting the progression of their illness. Understanding this allows for the intervention process to begin.

501C3 In the Application Process 

Your Founders Bryan Johnson

 & Board members 

At "The Fox" Extended Care , we emphasize structure and healthy activities over isolation in early recovery. At this time, the stigma of addiction and the weight of a 12-step program may deter individuals from grasping lasting recovery after primary care.

 Our program aims to make recovery enjoyable by strengthening resilience, setting healthy goals and building self-confidence. Our main objective is to help each participant manage his daily recovery. Learning how to ask for help is not a sign of weakness.

Participants in our program engage in a mental, physical and spiritual experience that is essential to long-term recovery. This is achieved through guidance (individual and groups), wilderness expeditions and daily 12-step meetings (in house and within the community). 

At The Fox, we strongly believe in the focus on self-worth and spirituality of the 12-step programs for young adult men. We concentrate on these areas of personal growth in our curriculum... 


 It is important to be aware that the roles established in childhood become behavioral patterns that often continue to play out into adulthood, relationships and family system. 

The late onset of substance abuse by a parent when there are adult children creates another paradigm of family relationship issues. 

These patterns stem from the adult children having, for the most part, already established identities within the family and socially. 

There is often a blurred line between a parent/child relationship and parent/friend relationship, which can be confusing and disrupting to the homeostasis that has been established in childhood. 

One of our objectives of the Program is to create and foster new Relationship Patterns ...

Our Program

Primary Components

The Fox Valley Program track is geared for those discharging from primary care who need to remain diligent with the recovery process on the early onset. Program needs recommended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox. 


In the Program, you receive services primarily through group therapy, but are also assigned an individual therapist you will meet with on a weekly basis while in the program. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe environment.

 Everyone is introduced to the following areas while in at Fox Valley Recovery & Behavior Health.

  • Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome Or PAWS
  • Relapse Prevention Skills
  • How to Manage Urges and Cravings
  • Understanding the Brain Chemistry of Addiction
  • Progression of the Disease of Addiction
  • Introduction To the Twelve Steps
  • Spirituality
  • Stages of Change
  • Focus On Co-Occurring Disorders and the Effects On Addiction and Recovery
  • The Family Education Program

Depending on your needs, you may be referred to additional comprehensive mental health treatment, or training in how to increase healthy life skills, or employment counseling.


The Program  is designed for people who are struggling with problems associated with addictions, substance use and abuse, or the co-occurring disorders associated with substance use.

Eligibility  is determined by a mandatory clinical/medical assessment, which is conducted at the center as part of the admissions process. The program is customized for each person, guided by the initial assessment and follow up.


Research has shown the individuals whose families are involved in treatment have a much better prognosis and a higher success rate. Fox Valley Recovery will make a concerted effort to include family members in the program whenever possible.  The goal of the family education program is to provide family members with information and support that will assist our clients in their recovery.

A family education group will be held every Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.  The purpose of this program is to provide family members with education, information and support to aide their family member in their recovery process.  The family program will have three parts: Didactic/Education Lecture, Process Group (family members only) and Question and Answer Session.

Welcome "Our Mold, Our Footprint"

 There has been much emphasis on the use of evidence-based practice. But with the rise of value-based payment and funding for outcomes - not just service delivery and population health - there is a need to move beyond evidence-based practice toward “practice-based evidence” and “measurement-based practice.” 

 We believe in transparency and honesty; and we believe that through our proven continuum of care, clients can be successful in overcoming addiction and maintaining sobriety. Treatment encompasses biological, social, spiritual and psychological interventions that align with client needs as they progress through each phase of treatment.
