Welcome to ModernMed Recovery!

Dr. Kenji Oyasu is a physician executive and founder of ModernMed Recovery. He actively manages and provides physician oversight for the medication-assisted treatment of patients struggling with opioid addiction. Dr. Oyasu’s 26 years as an emergency room physician exposed him to the growing epidemic of opioid addiction, along with the lack of treatment resources, so he felt the need to create a medication-assisted treatment program where patients are treated by caring physicians with professionalism. He has a special interest in linking the success of in-patient detoxification with long-term meaningful recovery.

He currently serves on the board of directors for the Lake County Opioid Initiative and medical committee for the Chicago Area Opioid Task Force. Dr. Oyasu has been recognized locally and nationally as an advocate for compassionate treatment of this very special patient population.

At ModernMed Recovery, you will be treated with respect, dignity and kindness at one of our substance abuse treatment centers in Illinois. Our practice is physician-owned and -operated, therefore we are able to provide you with the best medically assisted addiction treatment for your chronic opioid or alcohol addiction. Meet our team of caring professionals….

For anyone ready to commit truly to their recovery and to the betterment of themselves, there is no better place than modernmed. I found not only a brilliant and completey component physician, but what I would like to consider a friend in doctor Oyasu. His staff is also as caring as he, which is hard to imagine. If you are ready they will be ready to treat you, and not only in ailments but also with compassion and respect. People and places like this are becoming few and far between and I consider myself lucky to be a patient at this facility. Thank you from the center of my heart for providing me a productive outlet in my path of recovery and awakening.

AMAZING!! Modern Med is the place to go for anyone looking for REAL HELP. From the second i waked into Dr. Oyasu’s i felt welcomed. I didnt feel like an outcast or like anyone thought less of me for being a recovering addict. Their offices are always very clean, and very “inviting”, not just four white walls and a couch like most other places i have been. Dr. Oyasu is one of the nicest, most understanding people, let alone Doctor i have ever met, recovery community and just in life. He really listens to you and is very knowledgable about addiction, along with all his other medical knowledge. He really wants to tailor your recovery plan and process to make it really work for you! And not even just about addiction. Dr. Oyasu and ALL his staff are always willing to put down what they are doing if you ever need to run something by them, ask any questions, or sometimes just to have a conversation. They ACTUALLY answer the phone while they are open and are always speedy to get back to you same day if you leave them a message. Dr. Oyasu, if you and your staff are reading this, THANK YOU! There is no doubt in my mind Dr. Kenji Oyasu and ALL of his staff have saved my life! If you a struggling with addiction, THIS IS THE PLACE TO START YOUR JOURNEY OF RECOVERY!!

Dr. O is a huge part in saving my life I had a long hopeless 10 years nothing was working for me I decided I needed change and went to the emergency room to see if they could help me detox and they couldn't but they provided me with the number to MMR I called and got an appointment the next day. I walked into the office miserable I'm finally happy and have my family back thanks to this place everyone there is super kind and respectful. Dr. O is the best doctor Iver ever met he truly cares about his patients and knows what each individual needs. I highly recommend this place it saved my life
