An Outpatient Intensive Program


DASC’s unique Flourish program fills a gap in services in the Chicagoland area by offering individuals 3-12 hours of individualized programming per week. Flourish welcomes individuals who feel that they need more support than just weekly therapy, yet do not need a residential program. Flourish can serve as a stepping stone for individuals looking for a seamless transition from residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programs as they return to their daily lives. By aiming to support individuals in managing their symptoms and strengthening their skills, Flourish can serve as a step up in care for those already participating in individual therapy.

Programming is offered on Mondays through Thursdays from 4:00pm-8:00pm and 4:00pm-6:00pm on Fridays.

Each participant will be assigned a treatment coordinator who will serve as a support in developing and maintaining a treatment plan. The treatment coordinator will support the participant in identifying and addressing obstacles to treatment, as well as coordinate care with their individual providers. In addition to an assigned treatment coordinator, clients have the following groups available as part of their individualized programming:

  • DBT Skills Groups
  • Intro to DBT Group
  • Intro to CBT Group
  • Exposure Group
  • Mindfulness Group
  • Cope Ahead Group

DASC is committed to working with clients in determining an appropriate fee for services. DASC offers a combination of accepted payment through insurance providers and sliding scale rates to provide the most appropriate level of care. Our clinic is in-network with the following insurance plans: Blue Cross Blue Shield (PPO), Medicare, Tricare, and Aetna (PPO). DASC will work with other insurers as out-of-network providers.
