Our comprehensive intake assessment gets at the root of behavior, uncovers hidden issues and ensures an accurate diagnosis. The evaluation encompasses medical history, substance use patterns, physical and mental health, personality testing and genetic testing. The information is used to recommend an individualized treatment plan incorporating the most effective medical, psychiatric and therapeutic strategies for each patient.
Drug abuse and addiction is a serious issue for professionals in the workplace, most importantly for those with a responsibility to render services under a safe environment for their clients such as healthcare providers. Many well-educated, highly trained and experienced healthcare practitioners lose their families, careers, and futures to drug use and addiction.
Because drug abuse among professionals is highly stigmatized, many professionals remain silent about their addiction. The most important reason is denial because of the shame and guilt that accompanies the disorder. Addiction hijacks the brain and is considered to be a chronic illness. As such, it must be treated immediately and perpetually before an injury to self and others occur. Located in the heart of Chicago, on the calm waters of Lake Michigan, Positive Sobriety Institute is the destination of choice for professionals and others who fit our milieu seeking treatment for their addiction.
Addiction is a chronic brain disorder, often driven by psychological, medical, social and emotional factors. Even with the best intentions, relapse is a very real risk.
Overcoming underlying issues and sustaining sobriety takes ongoing effort and attention. Positive Sobriety Institute is dedicated to providing resources to help patients maintain their sober lifestyle. Through our Continuing Care Program, individuals in recovery receive ongoing care and enjoy the fellowship of their sober peers.
