About Insight Behavioral Health Centers

Insight provides specialized Chicago eating disorder treatment, as well as treatment for mood and anxiety disorders and overeating/obesity at five local treatment centers. Accredited by the Joint Commission and led by a nationally recognized team of experts across multiple behavioral healthcare disciplines, Insight leverages comprehensive, evidence-based treatment approaches to support adults, adolescents and families dealing with behavioral health concerns.

Recognizing that each individual has unique recovery needs, Insight offers several levels of care, including individual therapy, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Residential care. After a comprehensive assessment by a Master’s-level clinician, patients enter treatment at the level of care most suited to their needs and seamlessly transition along Insights’ treatment continuum as recovery unfolds.

Insight currently operates five Chicago treatment centers. In addition to two locations in Downtown Chicago, patients and families can access comprehensive care at treatment centers in Oak Park, Northbrook and Evanston. To meet the growing demand for fully-supported treatment, Insight has developed the residential treatment centers Illinois patients and families need to live a life of recovery.

In addition to clinical treatment, Insight is a local and national leader in behavioral health teaching, training, research and advocacy.  Insight is a teaching affiliate of Northwestern University Medical School and Rush Medical College, and its experts are dedicated to training the next generation of doctors and clinicians. Insight’s commitment to furthering mental health research to improve treatment outcomes has led to collaboration with the esteemed Daniel Le Grange, PhD in an effort to better understand options for treatment for eating disorders in adolescents who do not respond to traditional protocols. In addition, Insight leadership and staff promote mental health advocacy and awareness by participation in professional organizations and community events, particularly activities that raise awareness of options for eating disorder treatment Chicago offers.

Insight partners with Eating Recovery Center, a leading provider of specialized eating disorder treatment. Based in Denver, Colorado and with treatment centers across the country.
