Professionals Program

The Professionals Program (PIC) at The Menninger Clinic serves high-performance business professionals, lawyers, medical personnel, entrepreneurs and other high-achieving individuals who are experiencing difficulty managing their careers and relationships because of a psychiatric disorder, addiction, demands or stress.


Many professionals come to Menninger after years of individual therapy, medication and other forms of treatment. Menninger seeks to help these men and women find solutions that are sustainable and manageable long after their stay. This treatment program lasts five to seven weeks and helps individuals with complex problems build futures of renewed promise.
