CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rogers Behavioral Health, a leader in the treatment of
obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety, is opening its third
regional outpatient treatment center today. Located in Skokie at
4711 Golf Rd., Suite 600, the location is easily accessible from
downtown Chicago and the northern suburbs.
With one in 100 adults and one in 200 children diagnosed with OCD or
anxiety, they are two of the most common psychiatric disorders. The
Rogers Behavioral Health team of psychologists and psychiatrists utilize
comprehensive treatment programs based in cognitive behavior therapy
(CBT) emphasizing exposure and response prevention (ERP).
Karen Cassiday, PhD, clinical director for Rogers Behavioral
Health-Chicago, says, “The approach Rogers takes to OCD and anxiety
therapy is evidence-based, or those in which research studies have
documented and proven them to be the most effective treatment. They are
nationally recognized for their OCD and anxiety programs and I am
excited to work with them to meet the demand for these treatment
Encompassing 12,000 square feet of treatment space, the facility will
offer a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for adults,
adolescents and children diagnosed with OCD and anxiety. It will consist
of a treatment plan that is six hours a day, five days per week, as well
as an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for those with less
severe symptoms. This program will consist of a treatment plan that is
three hours a day, four days per week. Each program will be able
accommodate eight patients, for a total of 32. The usual length of
participation for both of these programs is four to six weeks.
“Our goal is to create individual treatments plans, not only to address
a patient’s specific need, but to help them feel empowered in their
treatment. The PHP and IOP levels of treatment provide support and
therapy, but allow patients to go home and use their skills with
everyday activities. This helps create a stronger transition when they
leave the program,” adds Cassiday.
Rogers has seven additional locations, including Kenosha and Milwaukee
in Wisconsin, some of which offer inpatient and residential services.
The location in Skokie complements the services at these locations,
providing patients access close to home when stepping down or up from
the more intensive levels of care.
In the last year, Rogers has opened similar regional outpatient clinics
in Tampa, FL, and in Nashville, TN.
Wisconsin-based Rogers Behavioral Health System is a private,
not-for-profit system nationally recognized for its specialized
psychiatry and addiction services. Anchored by Rogers Memorial Hospital,
Rogers offers multiple levels of evidence-based treatment for adults,
children and adolescents with depression
and mood disorders, eating
