Clinical Services at Rush Addiction Medicine Program

The Rush Addiction Medicine Program serves patients suffering from substance abuse or other addictive disorders. Under the direction of addiction medicine specialist Gail M. Basch, MD, the program offers comprehensive services for this substantial population.

Comprehensive Addiction Services

The program's multidisciplinary team collaborates to develop individualized treatment plans for patients suffering from conditions such as the following:

  • Alcoholism
  • Compulsive gambling or shopping
  • Dependency on illicit or licit drugs
  • Eating disorders
  • Sexual addictions
  • Workaholism

Treatments may involve a variety of therapeutic interventions — including individual and group therapy, inpatient and outpatient services, and the latest in leading-edge medications.

Gail M. Basch, MD, an assistant professor of psychiatry, is director of the Rush Addictions Medicine Program. A graduate of Chicago Medical School, she is board-certified in psychiatry and addictions medicine and spearheads resident training in that area. Basch directs a dual diagnosis program in the outpatient department and provides supervision to residents while they are on call.

Clinical services of the Addiction Medicine Program are linked to the Center for Compulsive Behavior and Addiction.
