Introduction and Basic Services

Chicago, Illinois based Positive Sobriety Institute offers outpatient substance abuse detox, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) in addition to a transitional living facility. Treatment includes a variety of evidence-based approaches and incorporates the 12-step philosophy. The facility treats adult men and women, with the average age of clients being around 45. Positive Sobriety Institute also has speciality tracks for professionals in the medical professional, professional athletes and other high stress work environments.

Facility and Meals

Clients who are taking part in the independant living program reside in spacious and attractive two bedroom apartments. Every unit is fully furnished with queen sized beds, full kitchens, a dining room and living room with large, flat screen TVs. A common area of the facility includes a courtyard with grill, tennis court and indoor swimming pool.

Since every client has their own kitchen they prepare their own meals on a daily basis, and get their own food during weekly grocery runs.

Treatment Protocol and Team

After the initial assessment, those who are not at risk of medical emergency can begin the ambulatory detox program. Those who are not candidates for the outpatient detox are referred to another agency for stabilization.

Following the detox step, clients can begin with PHP, which is highly structured and intensive. This program runs five days a week for about six hours a day and includes group and individual therapy in addition to psychoeducation and AA or NA meetings. Topics in group and individual sessions are relapse prevention, spirituality and co-occurring disorder focus.

The step-down is the IOP, a slightly less intensive option that includes a majority of what the PHP entails with less hours. In both cases these programs last about six weeks to 12 weeks depending on how each client is progressing.

Treatment methods are CBT and DBT in addition to holistic modalities. Meditation and yoga are integrated into programming, as well as binaural beats, which is commonly referred to as “brainwave entrainment” that aids in deep relaxation.

An aftercare program meets weekly in a group setting on an ongoing basis after the completion of the initial treatment program. There is also an intensive family program that takes place over three days and offers counseling and educational services.

The multidisciplinary team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, medical doctors and nurses, LADCs, LCSWs, CADCs and LPCs.

Bonus Amenities

The facility has in on-site gym that clients are encouraged to use daily.


Treatment at Positive Sobriety Institute is personalized and supportive, with a variety of treatment options and a highly experienced staff of experts.
