Psychiatric Services for Adults
Chicago Lakeshore Hospital provides a broad continuum of services for adults with psychiatric and emotional problems. Our continuum of care includes intensive outpatient, partial hospital, and inpatient hospital programs on both the Intensive Treatment Unit and the General Psychiatric Treatment Unit.
Our treatment team's focus is to assist patients in regaining a sense of control over their personal environment. The emphasis is on helping patients to develop healthy self-management strategies.
Program Features and Services May Include
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family crisis intervention or family therapy
- Leisure activities
- Case management
- Psychiatric management
- Medication management
- Other specialty tracks including dual diagnosis, eating disorders, and survivors of trauma or abuse
We believe a team approach is the most effective method to deliver quality care. The treatment team is led by a psychiatrist and often includes a licensed therapist, psychiatric nurse, activity/recreational therapist, clinical social worker, and mental health counselors. The treatment team offers not only their clinical expertise and experience, but also their concern and compassion.
