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.
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.
