AMITA Health, Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital’s Center for Anxiety and OCD
Patrick B. McGrath, PhD, Director of the Center for Anxiety and OCD opened this ABBHH Center in January 2006 in order to address the devastating effects OCD can have on a person’s life. Clinical focus is on addressing the entire environment from which a patient comes. The Center has two levels of programming — a 6 hour partial hospital program (PHP) and a three hour intensive outpatient program (IOP). Patients work one-on-one with staff doing exposure and response prevention work on a daily basis. Family members are also encouraged to be a part of treatment in both programs. Additionally, daily interaction with other patients helps increase socialization.
We are very close to O’Hare airport making it easy to get to ABBHH from anywhere in the country. The clinic also has relationships with local hotels allowing patients to stay close to the hospital and get great rates on rooms. Some hotels also include shuttle service, eliminating the need for a car. ABBHH takes almost all insurances both in and out of state.
