With locations at multiple hospitals and satellite facilities, the Adventist Institute for Behavioral Medicine is the largest non-profit behavioral health program in the Chicago suburbs. It serves adolescents, adults and senior citizens who are experiencing emotional, physical, behavioral or addiction disorders.
The institute offers a variety of services throughout DuPage County, including treatment options for debilitating conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and dementia.
The institute is comprised of a multidisciplinary staff that includes board-certified psychiatrists and clinical psychologists as well as addictionologists, social workers, nurses and counselors.

The services are organized as follows:

These programs are designed to include the family as an integral part of the recovery process and we offer an ongoing aftercare program following treatment for up to two years. OPTIONS provides mental health treatment in two different programs: one for adults and another for adolescents. Each of these programs offers several levels of care and treatment is collaborative and individualized. Services for persons with both an addiction and a mental health disorder are also provided offering specialized treatment and staff training.
