Alcohol Addiction Treatment
  • Alcohol abuse is a primary, chronic,
    progressive, and often fatal health problem for
    all of society, not just for the professional
    community. Alcohol use disorder has specific
    symptoms that can be fueled by unmanageable
    stress, work demands or poor relationships. If
    left untreated, alcohol use disorder can and will
    worsen. Like many other disorders, the symptoms
    of addiction can be temporarily stopped, but
    without entering an alcohol rehab program,
    significantly changing your lifestyle and
    continued recovery maintenance, relapse can
  • Positive Sobriety Institute (PSI) is one of the
    leading Illinois alcohol rehab and alcohol
    treatment centres in Chicago. We treat chemical
    dependency and alcohol use disorder as a brain
    disease, as well as take into account the many
    psychosocial factors that contribute to the

Characteristics of Alcohol Use Disorder
  • Characteristics of alcohol use disorder and
    addiction include lack of control over drinking,
    constant preoccupation with alcohol, use of

    distortions in thinkingmost notably denial.

    associations, committees

Drug Addiction Treatment
  • Drug abuse and addiction is a serious issue for
    professionals in the workplace, most importantly
    for those with a responsibility to render
    services under a safe environment for their
    clients such as healthcare providers. Many
    well-educated, highly trained and experienced
    healthcare practitioners lose their families,
    careers, and futures to drug use and addiction.


Drug Use Signs and Symptoms
  • Professionals who abuse drugs will often exhibit
    atypical behaviour. Certain signs and symptoms
    that may indicate a drug addiction include
  • Progressive deterioration in personal appearance
    and hygiene
  • Personality change such as mood swings, anxiety,
    depression, lack of impulse control
  • Work performance which alternates between periods
    of low and high productivity
  • Strained relationships with colleagues, family,
  • Frequent absences, tardiness, missed appointments
  • Disappearances from the work sitehaving long
    unexplained absences or frequent or long trips to
    the bathroom
  • Confusion, memory loss, and difficulty
    concentrating or recalling details and

Dual Diagnosis
Co-Occurring Disorders We Treat
  • Addiction and mental health problems are often
    closely linked. Its very common for people with
    a substance use disorder such as drug addiction
    or alcoholism to also suffer from a range of
    psychiatric or mood disorders, including
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety and fear disorders
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Personality disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Stress

Treating Dual Disorders
  • It can be a challenge to diagnose co-occurring
    disorders, as oftentimes the symptoms of the
    mental health disorder and the drug addiction are
    similar. Individuals that suffer from a drug
    addiction and mental health issue may be
    diagnosed with one of the following
  • Fear Disorder
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Stress
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Depression
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Depression

  • PSIs  Chicago drug rehab centres
    board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners,
    psychologists and addiction medicine clinicians
    evaluate each patient in order to diagnose and
    treat dual disorders. We thoroughly understand
    that mental illness and addiction share many of
    the same symptoms, and for this reason commit
    ourselves to helping our recovery patients
    sustain and maintain sobriety and long-term care
    for mental health issues.

Prescription Drug Abuse Treatment
  • According to a recent study conducted by USA
    Today, tens of thousands of doctors, nurses,
    medical technicians and other healthcare
    professionals across the nation struggle with
    abuse or addiction to prescription pain
    medication, mostly narcotics such as oxycodone
    and fentanyl. The study uncovered hundreds of
    state and federal cases in recent years in which
    physicians and other healthcare practitioners
    were disciplined or prosecuted for misconduct
    related to substance abuse.
