PEER Services’ mission is to improve the quality of life in local communities by working to eliminate substance abuse. This is best accomplished by educating the community, by preventing substance abuse from developing, by intervening when substance abuse problems do develop, and providing treatment for those teens and adults struggling with drug dependence or addiction.
PEER Services, Inc. is dedicated to preventing and alleviating the problems that substance abuse causes individuals, families and our community. A private, not-for-profit agency, PEER Services has been providing prevention and treatment services to Evanston and surrounding communities since 1975. Our professional staff includes certified prevention specialists, certified substance abuse counselors, licensed clinical social workers, licensed clinical professional counselors, physicians, nurses and family therapists. Treatment services are delivered in accordance with all applicable confidentiality laws. Treatment scholarships are available for individuals and families who are unable to pay the full cost of treatment.
