Quick-Look Services



If you are a successful professional who enjoys an active social life when you're not going all-out at work, you face unprecedented levels of stress. This is especially true for those who face tough challenges using logic, an even-temperament, and an unstoppable drive for success.

Oftentimes this results in coping routines that include overuse of alcohol, gambling, drug use, overeating, and extramarital encounters. Even though your use of alcohol or other limiting behaviors rarely leads to problems, you still may understandably want to prevent yourself from ending up in a bad situation in the future.

With our many behavior change counseling services, and multiple counselors to meet your needs, you can absolutely regain control. Let us show you how.


Our Counseling Services to Help You or a Loved One
Behavior Change Counseling in Chicago

Alcohol Moderation Counseling

Do any of the following sound familiar?
  • You feel frustrated because drinking feels beyond what you can solve (and you usually solve your own problems)
  • You know about or even tried AA but is not a good fit for you
  • You wake up with anxiety or shakiness, and find that the only thing that seems to help is "one small drink" to "take the edge off"
  • You worry your significant other will leave you, throw you out of the house, or force you to give up drinking forever
If any of these sound familiar, you may be feeling like it's time for a change. Moderation counseling can help you:
  • Wake up free of regret
  • Feel good about yourself
  • Gain the self control needed for drinking moderately in social situations
  • Reduce your anxiety
