Weekly outpatient therapy isn't always enough, and a trip to the ER isn't the only answer. When anxiety or depression is interfering with your day-to-day activities, you may need more comprehensive support. Compass Health Center's in-person and virtual Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs could be the right fit for you or a loved one.
At Compass Health Center, we are experts in treating children, adolescents, young adults, and adults with mood and anxiety symptoms that are impacting their daily functioning. Compass's clinicians use evidence-based therapies including CBT, DBT, ACT, and ERP, proven to be the gold standard for the treatment of these conditions. Through an in-depth team-based approach to care, the clinician team will determine the best possible treatment path for you—all while you maintain life at home. In both PHP and IOP, your day will consist of group therapy sessions focused on building skills and strategies to help manage symptoms.
When you start PHP/IOP, you will be assigned to a treatment team who will partner with you to identify your specific goals and map out a plan to achieve them. While the majority of your time is spent in group sessions, you will be assigned to a treatment team including an individual therapist and a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner. Depending on your age and your individual needs, you might also be assigned to a family therapist, an educational specialist, or another specialist if indicated. Your individualized treatment plan will consider your diagnosis, symptoms, treatment history, family involvement, and community resources. With your input, your team will continuously assess your progress and adjust as needed.
Compass's multidisciplinary treatment team consists of over 350 doctors and masters-level clinicians. Compass's specialized staff includes board-certified child, adolescent, adult and addiction psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, counselors, nurses, and more. Our clinicians are solely focused on their specialized role allowing them to become true experts in delivering the most specialized care.
Compass Virtual offers convenient and comprehensive mental healthcare, based on over a decade of experience delivering PHP/IOP levels of care at Compass Health Center’s three Chicago based locations. Compass Virtual, serving ages 13 through adulthood, helps individuals overcome a wide range of treatment barriers while maintaining the highest levels of quality, effectiveness, and satisfaction. Compass Virtual's 2021 data demonstrates that clinical outcomes are equivalent to those of Compass’s in-person programs.
Compass is a godsend. An amazing program for children who are struggling and families who are seeking help and guidance. I could not imagine that she would be so much better in less than 2 months. I wish we could have found Compass without going to the ER. Thanks for all you do!
The evening IOP program challenged me in a supportive and respectful way to help change my way of thinking. Compass provided me with the tools to help deal with life situations in a healthy way.
