Depression and Anxiety Specialty Clinic of Chicago
The Depression and Anxiety Specialty Clinic of Chicago (DASC) was founded in 2005 by Rodney J. Benson, PhD, after it became apparent that there was a significant shortage of quality cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) available in Chicago. Many people with treatable disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia, and major depressive disorder were suffering needlessly because they could not access quality care. It has been the mission of DASC to address this shortage by providing services to those suffering and also offering training opportunities to other professionals to increase the availability of CBT. DASC has clinical staff who are experts in using and teaching CBT.
