We begin with a customized care plan created to serve as a unique roadmap to recovery. Based on the patient’s individual needs, treatment may include family therapy, anger management sessions, physician-directed medication management, psychoeducational therapy and grief and loss sessions. Patients may also take advantage of our Intensive Outpatient Program and Partial Hospitalization Program.
The caring staff at Foundations Chicago fosters a compassionate and restorative environment that includes the Recovery Zone, complete with a patient lounge, videos, a lending library and Internet access. The entire process is designed to encourage and empower patients to rediscover themselves and leave equipped for a life of long-term recovery.

Pharmagenomic testing is a tool we utilize in the medication management portion of our treatment services. By understanding the unique genealogy and DNA complexities of the individual, the test results paint a picture of what psychotropic medications the individual would respond to favorably, unfavorably or reactively. This helps us eliminate medications that may not work well for an individual or could, in some cases, cause an adverse reaction. This is a tool used by the attending physician in conjuncture with the multidisciplinary team to provide the best recommendations possible regarding medication management or medical-assisted treatment. It serves to supplement our expertise and is not a replacement for the multidisciplinary approach. This tool also saves time and rounds of ineffective medication regimes, while decreasing the negative side effects of mis-medicating or overmedicating patients.
