Substance Use and Addictive Behaviors Program

Jon Grant, M.D., Daniel Fridberg, Ph.D., and Andrea King, Ph.D.

The substance use and addictive behaviors program at the University of Chicago offers a wide range of treatment services for substance use, compulsive, and impulse control disorders. We provide state of the art assessment and treatment of substance use (alcohol, drugs), tobacco use (smoking cessation), and impulsive behavior (gambling, trichotillomania, skin picking, sexual addiction, and kleptomania). The length and type of treatment is based on the needs of the client, and both psychotherapy and medication management services are available. Our goals are flexible and may include helping a client to achieve sobriety, prevent relapse, manage stress, identify triggers and high-risk situations, learn new coping skills, and become familiar with local support groups.

Appointments may be scheduled between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. To schedule an appointment, please contact intake services at: 773-702-3858.
