Project Description

Program Overview

The Chronic Pain & Illness Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs, based out of our Northbrook location, empower adults to take an active role in the management of their chronic pain and illness, as well as their mental health symptoms. Our team guides patients as they learn skills, navigate challenges, and develop new ways of thinking—all with the goal of better understanding and leveraging the mind-body connection.

These specialized programs offer a particular emphasis on acceptance of symptoms, increasing movement and activity, mindfulness, and challenging negative symptom appraisal and fear-avoidance beliefs.

Participants meet regularly with a psychiatrist for psychiatric medication management. Pain medication management will be coordinated with outside providers. Group, individual, and family therapy modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

Treatment Goals

Group therapy is the primary modality of treatment so as to provide patients with opportunities to normalize their experience, gain feedback from peers, and practice effective coping skills together. Families are encouraged but not required to participate in family therapy as it greatly facilitates the patient’s improvement.
