About Timberline Knolls
Located just 30 miles southwest of Chicago, Timberline Knolls provides individualized care for adult women and adolescent girls ages 12+ who have been struggling with eating disorders, substance use disorders, and mental health concerns. Timberline Knolls crafted their treatment process to address the specific challenges women and adolescent girls face. Often, when females receive care among other females, it can be easier for them to respond with honesty, which may otherwise feel intimidating in the presence of male residents. Removing this pressure helps women and girls thrive in their recovery experience.
Timberline Knoll’s focus on individualized service means that no two clients will have an identical experience. Their care will be guided by a unique plan that reflects and addresses specific strengths, needs, and goals. Depending on those factors, women's plans may include ambulatory, nonmedical detoxification, medication management, basic medical services, and individual, group, family, and experiential therapies.
A typical day at Timberline Knolls includes multiple group sessions, with experiential, psychoeducational, and process groups. Topics that may be addressed include coping skills, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills, and food discovery. Experiential groups may include recreational activities, yoga, dance and movement, and art therapy. For clients suffering from an eating disorder, they may also participate in dietary consultations and receive monitoring and support during meals and snacks.
To ensure that each person receives the focused, age-appropriate programming that best addresses their needs, Timberline Knoll’s residential services are provided in six lodges. Their lodge format provides a safe and supportive environment where women and girls can receive care alongside others within the same age group. Timberline’s lodges also promote the development of positive peer groups, which help residents learn how to establish healthy interpersonal relationships and begin to trust others for friendship and support.
