Providing Convenient, Patient-Centered Behavioral Health Care Across Illinois and Maryland

Compass Virtual builds on over a decade of excellence in delivering in-person Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs. Compass's care model is adapted for a virtual setting to maintain the highest levels of quality, effectiveness, and satisfaction while making care accessible to more people across Illinois and Maryland (additional states coming soon).

As in Compass Health Center’s highly regarded in-person programs, virtual participants receive group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, psychiatric evaluation, and medication management. If needed, a dedicated resource and aftercare therapist works with those who could benefit from help planning their post-discharge life. Educational specialists work with adolescent participants throughout the school year.

Age-Based, Comprehensive Virtual PHP/IOP Programs for Adolescents, Young Adults, and Adults

Compass’s virtual programs are open to individuals ages 13 and up and offer age-specific and condition-specific programming. The Compass team treats individuals primarily with Depression, Anxiety, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) symptoms, as well as co-occurring substance use and trauma diagnoses, that are severe enough to significantly impact daily functioning at home, school, or work.

Compass Virtual offers weekday and evening options to accommodate various schedules, including an after-school IOP for adolescents and an evening PHP/IOP for adults.

Our Success Stories

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass saved my life! I came into Compass with suicidal ideations and no hope. After a couple of weeks of being in the program, I did not have those thoughts anymore. Compass helped me change my mindset, from a negative pattern of thoughts to a more positive and optimistic frame of mind.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

My child is leaving Compass more equipped to handle her emotions, her anxiety, her depression, and the things that all trigger these. She is willing to use the skills, which is a huge change, and this is all due to how well Compass worked for her.

I liked how in Compass, everyone was respectful of my opinions, pronouns, and preferred name. There was no judging, and you can open up to people. I also like how I can relate to other kids. I also really appreciate learning new skills.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

At the program start time, participants sign into a group Zoom session from a private, comfortable location. The session begins with a check-in, followed by various process, skill, mindfulness, or specialty groups throughout the day. The program curriculum is based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), all evidence-based approaches that are carefully tailored to the ages and clinical needs of the group cohort.

Throughout the week, individuals will be moved to private Zoom rooms to participate in separate meetings with their primary therapist, family therapist, psychiatrist (or psychiatric nurse practitioner), and/or an education specialist if applicable.

Group therapy sessions form the core of the program, and each session is led by at least two Compass group leaders who are experienced, masters-level therapists. Typically, there are 8 to 14 participants in each group. In addition to group sessions, each patient conducts separate 1:1 sessions with their assigned psychiatrist, individual therapist, family therapists, and other care team members.

Patients connect to Compass Virtual through Zoom and this can be through a tablet or laptop/desktop. Due to the length of sessions and the requirement to engage with other group members, participation by mobile phone is not recommended. A high-speed internet connection and private space to participate are required.

The program is designed to be highly interactive and makes strategic use of breaks, exercises, and experiential therapies.

Yes, Compass Virtual is currently accepting new intakes for Compass's adolescent mood/anxiety (ages 13-18), young adult and adult mood/anxiety (ages 18+), and OCD (ages 18+) programs. When an individual or family member calls, they will be connected to an experienced intake specialist who will perform a telephone screening. Following this screening, if clinically indicated, a no-cost virtual assessment will be scheduled as soon as possible. The assessment, also conducted via Zoom, is with an experienced Intake Therapist who will further evaluate symptoms and discuss treatment recommendations.

Yes, Compass Virtual accepts all forms of insurance accepted by Compass Health Center. Virtual care is typically covered identically to in-person care, and one of Compass's patient advocates will determine this information for you.
