Medical Marijuana

Life in Balance clinicians provide a comprehensive and compassionate medical marijuana assessment services for individuals who suffer from a myriad of debilitating conditions.

Often times, individuals in severe pain or suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for prolonged period of times benefit from an assessment and care management of their condition.

In order to be considered eligible for the Illinois Medical Marijuana Program, an assessment is conducted and medical records collected so that certification of one of the qualifying medical conditions can be determined.

Counseling services are also available for individuals who have PTSD and other health or pain related conditions.  It is highly recommended that individuals with these conditions also concomitantly have counseling.  It however, is not a requirement of the Illinois Medical Marijuana program.

If you would like to begin an assessment, please go to our New Patient Registration form to begin the process, or call 815-828-9511.  We are in-network and a participating provider of Blue Cross Blue Shield IL and Medicare.

Qualifying patients must be diagnosed with a debilitating condition, as defined in the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, to be eligible for a medical cannabis registry identification card in Illinois.
