Personalized treatment

Northwestern Medicine offers personalized care from psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and licensed therapists on staff at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH). These specialists work closely together to address acute problems and develop goals that will lead to a successful recovery plan. When you are admitted to the Inpatient Psychiatric Units at CDH, you may need medication to stabilize symptoms associated with a psychiatric episode or illness. Following stabilization, your care team2 at CDH will develop treatment recommendations that may include:

  • Outpatient partial hospitalization
  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Patient education
  • Medication monitoring and supervision
  • Follow-up services in the community
Inpatient treatment provides patients with the resources to move toward wellness, including individual, family and group therapy. Patients may move to treatment in the Partial Hospital Day Program to continue recovery. Patient dignity and confidentiality are a priority of Northwestern Medicine, and our staff is committed to treating you with respect and protecting your privacy.
