Compass Health Center is cutting edge in our approach to intensive level psychiatric treatment. Our goal is to help patients overcome debilitating psychiatric symptoms through scientifically proven treatment modalities. We pride ourselves in offering superior, compassionate, innovative treatment to the North Shore and Chicago area.
The Partial Hospital Program (PHP) provides short-term, intensive treatment to prevent patients from needing inpatient psychiatric hospitalization or helps them transition to a lower level of care after a recent psychiatric inpatient stay.
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides short-term stabilization for patients who are having difficulty managing their symptoms in traditional outpatient treatment. The IOP can be used as a bridging treatment between PHP and traditional outpatient treatment or as a step-up of care when traditional outpatient care does not suffice.
The School Refusal PHP provides short-term stabilization for adolescents having trouble attending school. Most of these patients struggle with depression and/or anxiety that manifests itself as school refusal behavior. The School Refusal Program helps patients transition back to school.

Thank you very much to all the professionals at Compass. I have been enormously impressed by the clinicians, front desk and everybody at Compass. My daughter is a different person and although still has a long way to ride, she is feeling hopeful, upbeat and most importantly proud of herself. We have also learned a lot in the process and hope to be better parents going forward.VIEW MORE PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

At Compass Health Center, we solely focus on intensive level psychiatric treatment, so all of our resources are dedicated to this treatment.
