Life at Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center Oak Brook
Accredited by the Joint Commission, Pathlight operates numerous treatment centers in the Chicago area. They are also a teaching affiliate of Northwestern University Medical School and Rush University Medical School.
As a member of the Eating Recovery Center family of programs, Pathlight’s treatment philosophy acknowledges the importance of assessment, intervention and discharge planning in successfully addressing behavioral health concerns. A fully comprehensive assessment is crucial in identifying co-occurring conditions and developing an individualized treatment plan that best meets specific patient needs.
Evidence-based interventions including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) collectively help patients and families alike interrupt maladaptive thoughts and behaviors – and live a values-rich life. In addition to our therapeutic modalities, we offer robust family programming so that all families, friends and caregivers receive the necessary education and resources to support their loved ones.
Eating disorder treatment for anorexia, bulimia and other related conditions is also available through our Eating Recovery Center programming in a facility in the same location: enabling us to more effectively treat complex, comorbid patients and easily step them up / down various levels of care.
For our out-of-town patients and families, we offer free Travel Concierge Services. Our Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Concierge Services Representative is available to assist you with a wide variety of needs before and during treatment, including travel arrangements, booking accommodations, and help locating local services, such as shopping, dining, and much more.
Treatment for Children and Adolescents
For all adolescent and children programs, we employ teachers on staff and in the facility that will help with tutoring and coordinating with children and adolescent schools so that treatment does not hinder their ability to move forward in education.
Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center knows that lasting recovery isn’t just an individual journey. We offer resources and events for the patient’s friends, family and caregivers so they can offer effective support during and after treatment.
