What is addiction?

Addiction is a disease that changes the brain by undermining the way it registers pleasure and influences learning and motivation.

Everyone’s path to addiction is different but has one thing in common: continued use of substances over time. Regardless of why someone first uses a substance, even if it is a prescribed drug, the brain starts to change with the initial use and continues to change in both structure and function over time.

Just as cardiovascular disease damages the heart and diabetes impairs the pancreas, addiction hijacks the brain. It is important to recognize that addiction is a disease and not a choice. Just like with any disease, getting the right treatment is vital to recovery. Substance abuse treatment programs helps patients put active addiction into remission.

Addiction is not a moral failing. It is a chronic disease that requires medical and professional help.

Help for Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol is the most commonly used addictive substance in America. Excessive drinking—on a single occasion or over a length of time—can lead to serious health problems, chronic diseases and even death. Alcohol abuse also impacts users’ behavior, which can result in accidents and violence. The effects of alcohol addiction are grave and far-reaching. While some people can overcome this addiction on their own, most people need assistance. Substance abuse treatment programs can help end the grips of alcohol on you or a loved one.

The goal of alcohol rehab treatment centers in Illinois is to help you change the way you enjoy life and help you find other ways to fill your life without alcohol. Because each patient is different, their road to recovery is different. So our staff works with you to develop a personalized treatment plan with your needs in mind.

Co-ocurring and Dual Diagnosis Services

Dual diagnosis treatment seeks to resolve both addiction and any co-occurring disorders at the same time. This means that addiction doesn’t get 100 percent of the focus during recovery. All too often, patients feel that substance abuse and addiction needs to be the priority. While it should be a priority, treating addiction on its own could end up creating additional problems.

A dual diagnosis treatment plan will use a variety of therapies to target both aspects of co-occurring disorders. Like all treatment plans at Gateway Foundation, patients can expect customized care that addresses their unique needs.

Battling Drug Addiction

Ending a drug addiction is a bold and courageous move, but it isn’t something you need to do on your own. In fact, relying on professionals and addiction experts will make your recovery more relaxed, more comfortable and even more successful. Drug addiction treatment centers like Gateway Foundation offer the support you need to fight back against addiction once and for all.

Drug treatment centers focus on the whole person, which means that all aspects of recovery are covered. At Gateway Foundation, that includes medical support. While drug addiction is not just a physical disease, there is no denying that it can impact your physical health. Addressing physical needs ensures that patients are healthy enough to continue with their ongoing recovery.
