Services Provided at Gateway Drug and Alcohol Addiction Rehab Centers

Patients in any of our programs have access to our full spectrum of addiction treatment services. We will recommend services based on your intake and personal input. Our team offers a wide range of medical and behavioral treatments, including:

  • Individual, group and family counseling: Some patients thrive with individual counseling, while others work best in a group. At our rehab center, we offer both and tailor each program to the individual patient. We also offer family counseling, which helps strengthen bonds and teaches each family member how to work together. 
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: Designed to help patients change their thinking, beliefs and values, cognitive behavioral therapy equips individuals with the tools and skills they need to overcome their substance addiction. To help prevent relapse, patients will also learn coping skills they can apply to future challenges. 
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy: During dialectical behavioral therapy, which has seven main components, patients learn how to positively manage their emotions. By first identifying and modifying behaviors, feelings and thoughts, patients can understand what led to their addiction and how they can overcome it.
  • Trauma therapy: Our substance use treatment facility also offers trauma therapy for patients suffering from either acute, chronic or complex trauma. Patients join a Seeking Safety program, which teaches them how to make safe choices, or Dual Diagnosis Enhanced Treatment, which is designed for patients with co-occurring disorders. 
  • Motivational Interviewing: For patients who need some encouragement to stay engaged and focused on the future, we offer Motivational Interviewing. This program helps people find the positives of living a sober life and guides them in figuring out how to make it happen.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) focuses on the present, helping patients develop Mindfulness-Based Sobriety and move on. Through this type of psychotherapy, patients focus on taking action in both significant and small ways.
  • 12-Step Facilitation: Our 12-Step Facilitation (TSF) is modeled after programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), which we offer at our inpatient and outpatient rehab center. This 12-step fellowship (TSF Manual) is an evidence-based curriculum that can help patients minimize subsequent use.
  • Mindfulness-Based Sobriety: Patients who join our Mindfulness-Based Sobriety program learn how to stay focused on the present. By acknowledging feelings and situations happening in the here and now, patients can focus on these things and progress toward sobriety. Just like our other programs, Mindfulness-Based Sobriety is tailored to each individual and can be complemented by our other addiction treatment programs.

Each patient has a personalized care plan that can include some or all of the above services. Your treatment plan will feature services tailored to your symptoms and needs.

When to Visit an Illinois Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center

Our Gurnee facility provides multiple levels of outpatient care. When you participate in an outpatient drug and alcohol program, you will live at home while attending our clinic during the day. Some patients visit every day, while others only need an appointment every few days. Outpatient treatment might fit your needs if you:

  • Have a supportive network of friends and family at home
  • Experience mild to moderate addiction symptoms
  • Need to attend work or school every day

If you have severe symptoms or a lot of distractions at home, you might benefit more from a residential program. We welcome any patient who needs help with addiction to reach out to us. Our team can evaluate your needs and direct you to another Gateway location if you need inpatient services.
