Professionals Program of
Resurrection Behavioral Health - Addiction Services

Program Description

This nationally recognized program is designed specifically for the needs of physicians and other health care professionals, including those with psychiatric or medical co morbidity. It is also ideal for high accountability individuals from other vocations, such as the law, clergy, business and industry.

The program philosophy is that professionals benefit from peer interaction and support with other professionals. Although the majority of the patients are professionals, the program design also includes non-professional patients.

Program Structure

The program is based on a day hospital (Monday through Friday, 9:00 to 5:00 and Saturday, 9:00 to 11:00) model. Most patients live in nearby apartments as an independent living community. This provides an intensive 24-hour integration of the treatment program into a daily living routine that emphasizes self responsibility for all daily living activities, as well as accountability to peers.

Program Components

  • Physician involvement and leadership in daily program activities
  • Interactive group psychotherapy
  • Emphasis on meditation and mindfulness
  • Individual therapy and case management

  • Special focus groups addressing mood disorders, dual diagnosis issues and process addiction (including eating disorders and sexual compulsivity)

  • Physician led recovery/re-entry groups (Caduceus)
  • Extended program (Phase II) that provides transitional treatment in preparation for return to home and professional life
  • Didactic workshops
  • Family groups and a separate Family Week Program
  • Advocacy with medical and licensing boards for patients in recovery
  • Independent Living Community (ILC)
  • Emphasis in self reporting, individualized treatment planning and evidenced-based therapies

Length of Treatment

The treatment length is individualized according to need. Most health care professionals will be in the day hospital program a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks, followed by an extended period of less intensive treatment for at least 2 to 4 weeks.

Treatment Schedule

The Lincoln Park Professionals Program is designed for healthcare and other high accountability individuals, who need an intensive treatment experience combined with an independent living community (housing). In this residential setting, patients are able to live in a highly supportive community with peers sharing similar concerns and issues.

All patients begin in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP day hospital Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:45 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.) for 4 to 6 weeks. Upon completion of this level of treatment, patients are transitioned into the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for a shorter treatment day for an average of 2 to 4 weeks.

After completing the program, patients will be a part of continuing care, which continues for a minimum of 2 years. Continuing care is set up in the patient's home community.
