At GIA Chicago, we believe that every person deserves to live their best life. Due to stigma and guilt, people struggling with addiction often experience feelings of shame and worthlessness. Additionally, these feelings can contribute to developing an addiction, creating a vicious cycle that can be difficult to escape. We work with you to diminish the feelings that can lead to addiction and relapse.

Who Is GIA Chicago For?

GIA Chicago is for anybody who is ready to make a positive and powerful transformation to their mental wellness.
Although every case is unique, some common symptoms of addiction are:

  • Feeling as though you can’t cope without substances
  • Regularly using substances to the point of not remembering things or passing out
  • Intense cravings, to the extent that you can’t concentrate on daily activities
  • Being consumed with thoughts of obtaining and using substances or engaging in addictive behaviors
  • Being dishonest about your frequency of use or engagement in this activity
  • Increasing the quantity of substance you use

The GIA Chicago Approach

The range of therapies we offer at GIA Chicago helps you make impactful, sustainable changes, so you can overcome addictive behaviors. In combination with traditional talking therapies, we offer TMS therapy - a non-invasive procedure that works by stimulating brain cells in relevant areas of the brain - to create a bespoke and effective treatment program.

Our diverse team of experts brings different specialties, but we share a united approach to recovery. The crossover of cutting-edge neuroscience and traditional psychological practice is at the center of our treatment.

We build a picture of your mental and physical health using a combination of scientifically and clinically validated tests. With you in the driving seat, our compassionate and skilled therapists work together to design a bespoke treatment program specifically for your needs. We combine traditional talking therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy with pioneering approaches such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

What Can You Expect During Treatment?

We offer exclusively outpatient services, ensuring that you can embark on your recovery journey without disrupting daily life. We aim to incorporate flexibility and fluidity in our planning so that you can fulfill your responsibilities at the same time. This is your recovery; it should fit comfortably into your life.

Continuing to enjoy healthy activities and nurturing supportive relationships will increase your chances of achieving a strong and sustainable recovery. Moreover, it allows you to test the techniques you learn in therapy in a real-life setting.

Accessing treatment shouldn’t be at odds with living a full and enriching life - we help make both possible.
