Ishani Dalal, DO
is the Medical Director of the Continuing Care Outpatient Program at Positive Sobriety Institute. A board-certified psychiatrist, Dr. Dalal provides comprehensive psychiatric care to patients who have completed treatment, helping in the continued management of co-occurring mental health issues with a focus on avoiding relapse.
Dr. Dalal received her medical degree in 2009 from Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her residency in general psychiatry at Palmetto Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine in 2015, and her fellowship in addiction psychiatry at Northwestern University in 2016.
At Positive Psychiatry Institute, Dr. Dalal collaborates with a multidisciplinary team to provide the support patients need post-treatment to maintain sobriety. She also works to remove barriers to psychiatric treatment for patients in need of ongoing mental health care.
Dr. Dalal became interested in helping patients with addiction issues during her residency. Often, her patients who had major depression, anxiety, bipolar or schizophrenia also struggled with addiction. By gaining expertise in treating addiction issues, she felt she could better treat the whole person.
Dr. Dalal is committed to reducing the stigma associated with both addiction and mental health disorders. Removing the stigma will allow more people to seek help for addiction and co-occurring conditions, ultimately reducing suering.
