Recovering from Addiction

Recovery is a highly personal process. There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment that can address every aspect of addiction. That’s why, at Gateway Foundation, we choose a more person-centric approach. The addiction recovery services we provide at our Jacksonville, IL, location address the unique needs of each person who comes to us for help — giving them the greatest possible chance for a successful and long-lasting recovery.

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a complex brain disease that is characterized by compulsively seeking out a substance despite its harmful consequences. While a variety of factors and influences can contribute to a person developing an addiction, the result is the same. The brain is changed both functionally and structurally, distorting how you think and behave. Intense cravings for the substance make it difficult to quit. Judgment, decision-making and behavior control are compromised.

Like any disease, treatment is the most effective way to overcome addiction. With professional addiction treatment, people can recover to lead healthy, productive lives.

The Recovery Process

The addiction recovery process requires a whole-person, integrated approach. Treatment that only focuses on the physical impact of addiction misses the mark.

Instead, care must be given to the psychological, emotional and social aspects of this disease as well.

There are several evidence-based practices that ensure those struggling with addiction get the help they need. At Gateway Foundation in Jacksonville, we tailor our treatments based on the needs of the individual to include a variety of techniques that will assist a person’s recovery process.

From withdrawal management to aftercare, all of our services and programs share a common goal — to engage patients through a combination of clinically based services and compassionate care that addresses each individual’s physical, social and emotional needs.
