The Positive Sobriety Institute specializes in expert-delivered addiction assessment, rehabilitation and recovery services to impaired professionals through intensive partial and outpatient programs, independent living and mandatory after care. The majority of patients at PSI are professionals, many in safety sensitive, high-stakes careers. Accordingly, we work closely with all regulatory boards, referring agencies and employee assistance professionals to assure treatment adherence, accountability and compliance with respect to licensing standards, and other governing bodies that have entrusted PSI with saving a highly valued individual. We are honored to do so, and take this responsibility to heart. Because for these men and women, the cost of failure is simply too high.
Professionals we treat include:
- Doctors, Physicians, Nurses, and other healthcare professionals

A Culture of Mutual Trust and Respect
At PSI, we strive to create a high level of mutual trust and respect with each patient, their family members, referral sources, our colleagues, and with the community. Establishing a culture of mutual trust is integral to our mission, core values, clinical standards, and of course, the expectation of excellence we hold ourselves to. The exceptional outcomes delivered by PSI, are a direct reflection of our commitment to the irreducible principle of mutual trust and respect.
Cohesive, Collaborative and Comprehensive
Our team of experts from various clinical disciplines work cohesively, collaborating daily with each other, and most importantly, with each patient. This is not the easiest way to go, but the results of our labor intensive, “hands on” approach delivers a comprehensive, objective and accurate, diagnosis, which is the foundation of each patient’s individual care plan. Moreover, our model routinely uncovers co-occurring medical or psychiatric conditions, of which, many would be missed by a less comprehensive approach. These co occurring conditions are addressed and treated at PSI, or by referral to the best available resource.
Alliance with Academic Medicine
Due to our strategic alliance with the Feinberg School of Medicine, at Northwestern University, we continually incorporate the most recent findings, derived from the best available research, into our all our diagnostic and treatment modalities. Moreover, because our patients come from various backgrounds, with differing disease sequela, severity and support, PSI provides state-of-the-art, multimodal, multi-phasic, and multidisciplinary care.
The Three M’s of Addiction Treatment Excellence
The best available scientific evidence reveals that the most accurate diagnosis and best treatment outcomes for addictive disease and concurrent medical or psychiatric illness, result from patient centered care that is, Multimodal, Multi-phasic, and Multidisciplinary.
Multimodal care provides distinct, yet complimentary therapeutic modalities, such as, comprehensive medical and psychological evaluations, detoxification, group, individual and family therapy, nutritional counseling, recreational therapy and spiritual care.
Multi-phasic treatment provides distinct “phases” of care, including evaluation, primary treatment (inpatient or outpatient), family counseling and continuing care. “This year’s U.S. News & World Report ranking recognizes Feinberg’s exceptional accomplishments and our upward trajectory among the nation’s elite medical schools,” — Eric G. Neilson, MD, vice president for Medical Affairs 4
Multidisciplinary. Our team includes experts from psychiatry, addiction medicine, neurology, internal medicine, psychology, social work, and various subspecialties utilized, when needed, by our patient centered program.
