Above and Beyond Family Recovery Center

Visit website

Above and Beyond is a licensed Level I and Level II outpatient addiction treatment facility. No one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay. Our focus is serving Chicago’s community of the disenfranchised with a long history of unemployment and substance abuse impacting both the family and the community at large. In the spirit of utilizing often ignored rich community resources, our facility was built by an artist/builder using repurposed materials to create a unique, eclectic, modern industrial space which includes original furniture pieces and art. Our goal is to offer a place that evokes order and pride in the people we serve.
