0 Reviews

Positive Sobriety Institute is located on Lake Michigan in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Positive Sobriety Institute specializes in expert-delivered addiction treatment and recovery.

Positive Sobriety Institute Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Rehab Services:

Medically Assisted Detox

Positive Sobriety Institute offers medically-supervised ambulatory and inpatient detox in Chicago to treat severe cases of alcohol, drug, and pain medication use disorder. The ambulatory detox program is a voluntary, outpatient model with many of the benefits of inpatient detoxification but in a less-restrictive environment. Ambulatory detox is the first phase in a continuum of substance abuse recovery treatment plan. Ambulatory drug and alcohol detox services in Chicago include assessment and patient observation, medical history, monitoring of vital signs, treatment of withdrawal symptoms, counseling, and addiction recovery planning. Inpatient detox at Positive Sobriety Institute offers the advantages of constant medical care and supervision provided by a professional staff who can administer immediate treatment for serious complications.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.

What does Positive Sobriety Institute offer?

24 Hour Clinical Care

Positive Sobriety Institute’s medically-supervised, ambulatory detox is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Individuals are under the care of an interdisciplinary team that includes medical director, Dr. Dan Angres, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and addiction counselors.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Positive Sobriety Institute’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for men and women with alcohol, drug, or pain medication use disorder who do not require more intensive levels of residential treatment. An IOP is the first step for individuals requiring close monitoring and the length of stay is determined after thorough evaluations and assessments are performed. Positive Sobriety Institute’s IOP helps patients begin the recovery process through education, counseling and support. The goal is to promote lifestyle changes supportive of recovery.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Society’s disapproval for alcohol and drug abuse finds no greater recipient for stigma than an addicted professional including physicians, pharmacists, lawyers, pilots, executives and others. Positive Sobriety Institute, based in Chicago, Illinois, treats these individuals and their specific addictions including any co-occurring issues such as mental health in a culturally-sensitive environment conducive to healing and recovery.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Positive Sobriety Institute recognizes that every patient has unique needs. Each individual participating in Positive Sobriety Institute’s PHP works collaboratively with an interdisciplinary treatment team that includes a licensed psychiatrist, registered nurse, social worker or counselor who provide addiction treatment services.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Recognizing that substance dependency is a family disease, Positive Sobriety Institute’s IOP dedicates time for family sessions. Family members are an important part of their treatment approach. They invite patients, families and referring treatment team members to contribute to the individual’s recovery plan.

Aftercare Support

Patients in the continuing care outpatient program meet weekly for group therapy. Group sessions incorporate a variety of treatment modalities, including 12-step, cognitive behavior therapy and process group therapy, in which patients are encouraged to openly share their struggles and express their thoughts and feelings. In a warm and welcoming environment, Positive Sobriety Institute alumni seek input from others on managing challenges, and offer advice and encouragement to their peers. Their alumni also meet with patients currently in treatment, offering inspiration and motivation to others.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of therapy utilized to treat a wide variety of mental and psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety disorders, addiction, chronic pain and eating disorders. CBT asserts that what we think about our lives and circumstances greatly influences our feelings and behavior. Negative or irrational beliefs lead to poor behavioral choices. CBT has been shown to help those with addictive disease more effectively recognize stressors, triggers and practice self-regulation and self-monitoring techniques.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is an important, though often misunderstood, component of addiction treatment. Group therapy’s restorative effects emanate from the powerful social bonds that form through shared experience. Group therapy is a place to nurture healthy relationships, and to demonstrate respect, compassion and empathy for others. All are necessary for maintaining sobriety, and for embarking on a happy, healthy life with fulfilling relationships after treatment.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing strategically identifies what a patient values the most, and uses that as a catalyst for positive change. Motivational interviewing techniques were developed specifically for the treatment of substance use disorders. The technique involves using an empathic, nonjudgmental and supportive approach to explore a patient’s values, beliefs and personal goals. MI also examines any ambivalence, or reluctance, about the changes needed to live a sober life.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
