For nearly 10 years, Insight Behavioral Health Centers has been working to help those struggling with issues such as eating disorders, mood disorders, postpartum depression, and anxiety. The organization has a new location in Oak Park, Ill. that will offer intensive outpatient, individual, and family therapy services to residents in the Western suburbs of Chicago. This location marks the fourth behavioral healthcare location, including its Downtown Chicago headquarters.
The Oak Park office officially opens May 1, with an open house taking place Wednesday, May 8 from 3 to 7 p.m. Insight encourages counselors from neighboring high schools, media and local professionals to attend, meet the staff, and ask questions.
The new facility will offer customized eating disorders, mood and anxiety services to adults, adolescents and their families. The space features six clinical offices, two group therapy rooms, and a group dining area (re-learning social dining is an essential component of recovery for clients with eating disorders). Intensive therapy groups will be available to clients with eating, mood, and anxiety concerns, with separate groups offered exclusively for adolescents and their parents.
"One thing that sets Insight apart is our use of intensive treatment. This is very helpful for people who need more than traditional individual therapy," says Katherine Zwick, Program Coordinator for the Oak Park office. "Our Adolescent Program is unique in using Dialectical Behavior Therapy with both adolescents and their parents."
