A Message from Melissa:
I am the Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Program Coordinator at GEFCC’s Center for Family Health in Sycamore. Prior to this position, I worked for the Kane County Health Department as the Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist, creating, educating and training on overdose prevention and the use of naloxone. My passion is providing individual and group therapy for those struggling with substance use disorders. I use a combination of Client-Centered therapy, CBT, and trauma-informed approaches to support patients on their journey of recovery.
