Let us help you manage all of addiction’s effects so you can raise your chances of a successful recovery.
When you first visit our outpatient treatment center, we will perform an intake where we talk about your needs. We will ask about your drug use, medical history and situation. Once we understand your experience with addiction, we will develop a personalized care plan designed around your needs. As you receive treatment, we can adapt this strategy in response to changing circumstances.
Addiction recovery can appear to be confusing. Finding a support system is needed for a successful recovery. People who have been your support in the past may not be the people who support you in recovery. Having a sober community in place can make all the difference in staying sober. Gateway Chicago Kedzie works to create a community where all feel welcome and support each other.
Undergoing addiction treatment forces people to change virtually every aspect of their life. Their habits, interests, and even who they choose to spend time with all may change after they finish treatment. This can create feelings of intense loneliness as they realize they can’t rely on the same friend group.
The addiction treatment staff at Gateway Chicago Kedzie fosters an environment of community and support for both current clients and alumni. Support for alumni is especially important, as they are striving to live independently while remaining sober. For this reason, we provide a variety of options for alumni to stay involved in our sober community.
For one, we offer weekly meetings that alumni are welcome to attend. These include other 12 Step Recovery Programs. In these weekly meetings, attendees discuss their current struggles and find comfort in others going through the same circumstances. For many, these meetings are vital for keeping them grounded and stable in recovery.
Gateway also puts on events for alumni to help them have fun and meet people in a sober environment. These events include lake parties, 5Ks, and more. These events are a great place to find sober friends and start rebuilding your support network.
