Serving Effingham, IL
According to founding member Kevin Lawton, NextStep Behavioral Healthcare LLC is a medication-assisted therapy and personal counseling center for treating opioid addiction. He previously worked with a doctor in downstate Illinois to use Buprenorphine to treat opioid addiction.
Appointments are available Monday - Friday. Contact us today to start the recovery process!
Kevin continued to do assessments and individual counseling sessions. He started an opioid addiction group for current patients. More groups, counseling staff, and physicians were added to accommodate the growing number of people seeking help.
The opioid addiction epidemic led Kevin to meet with 2 physicians involved in addiction treatment, as well as a local attorney, to discuss service expansion. NextStep was the result. Count on our passionate commitment to helping those suffering from addiction.
This affiliation saw a number of challenges, and this physician was unable to devote his full attention to the group. Ultimately, he moved on and Kevin and his colleagues sought other doctors to fill the void.
