Addiction Treatment and Recovery Programs in Illinois

Finding the right treatment program is essential to successful recovery from a substance use disorder. Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is possible with effective treatment methods and compassionate support. Gateway Foundation offers substance use disorder rehab facilities across Illinois to help individuals find freedom from addiction.

If you are looking for Chicago recovery programs or Illinois recovery programs outside the city, Gateway Foundation can help. Our recovery specialists tailor services and treatment to each individual to support their recovery journey and help them reach their goals. 

Our Addiction Treatment and Recovery Programs


Our Addiction Treatment and Recovery Programs

Substance use disorder is a serious disease that can significantly impact an individual’s life, but recovery is possible. Since addiction is a lifelong condition, Gateway Foundation offers various rehabilitation services for all stages of recovery. From detoxification to aftercare, Gateway is with patients for life. 

Learning about treatment options is the first step toward recovery. Gateway Foundation helps individuals find freedom from addiction with the following programs and services:

The Recovery Advantage Program

The Recovery Advantage Program is an alcohol-specific program tailored to address alcohol use disorder. It provides specialized treatment for patients recovering from alcohol addiction. This program implements medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and 24/7 nursing and medical care in a non-hospital setting to help patients manage alcohol withdrawal. 

The Recovery Advantage Program confronts the underlying factors that cause alcohol use disorder by implementing personalized recovery plans with evidence-based practices. This program also provides a continuum of care and an active alumni community engaging individuals in recovery after they complete treatment. Alumni can remain connected to Gateway Foundation’s recovery community by attending monthly meetings and social events.

Women’s Rehabilitation Program

Women's Rehabilitation Program

While addiction affects both men and women, women’s rehabilitation addresses the unique experiences and challenges that women face in recovery. Gender-specific addiction programs allow women a safe space to share their experiences with other women and receive the mental health services and medical care they need. 

Gateway Foundation’s women’s rehabilitation program personalizes each patient’s recovery plan to treat the whole individual and address the experiences that contributed to their substance use disorder. 

Men’s Rehabilitation Program

Gateway Foundation also offers a men’s rehabilitation program to address the specific challenges men can face in recovery. Societal beliefs about masculinity often pressure men to push their feelings aside as a sign of strength, causing many men to avoid seeking the help they need. Men’s rehabilitation programs help men work through challenges and experiences to reach their recovery goals. 

In the men’s rehabilitation program, men can work through challenges that are more common among males such as violent behavior and maladaptive anger. Gender-specific recovery helps men address these matters and learn how to take responsibility for and change their behaviors. When individuals enter a men’s rehabilitation program, they have opportunities to speak openly about their experiences, emotions, and challenges with other men they can relate to and who understand what they are experiencing. 

DUI Programming

A court will charge an individual with driving under the influence (DUI) if they find that the individual operated a vehicle while intoxicated. In some cases, judges include DUI programs in sentencing to educate first-time offenders about the dangers of driving under the influence and change their behavior. This helps participants avoid stricter sentencing. 

In a DUI program, trained professionals teach individuals about the physical, emotional, and legal consequences of driving while intoxicated. DUI classes also teach participants how to avoid harmful behaviors in the future. The court requires weekly DUI class attendance until participants reach their required course times. DUI classes are designed with the following structure and process:

1. Evaluation

Substance use professionals conduct DUI evaluations when participants start DUI programs. If you enter a DUI program, a professional will ask questions about your arrest and substance use. The professional will then analyze this information to determine the most effective treatment options for you. They will not submit any information for a judge to use in court. The purpose of gathering it is to evaluate your needs and assign instruction hours based on the following risk levels:

  • High: A high-risk level requires participants to complete court-mandated DUI education courses along with 75 hours of substance use treatment. Participants must also continue to participate in aftercare following rehabilitation.
  • Significant: An individual must complete 10 DUI education hours and 20 substance use treatment hours along with continued participation in aftercare if they are at a significant risk level. 
  • Moderate: Individuals with a moderate risk complete 10 DUI education hours and 12 early intervention treatment hours. Participants must complete these hours in a minimum of four weeks, and they must participate in no more than three class hours per day.
  • Minimal: A minimal risk level requires participants to complete a minimum of 10 DUI education course hours. Individuals can take up to two-course hours per week, and they typically complete their course requirements in five to six weeks.

Course Instruction

2. Course Instruction

Gateway Foundation’s DUI classes are structured to facilitate small groups consisting of 10-25 students. We use engaging tools such as educational movies, guest speakers, and brief exams to cover the course materials and allow students to demonstrate their progress. DUI courses cover the following information:

  • How driving under the influence affects the safety of the intoxicated driver and other motorists on the road
  • Health effects of substance use
  • Potential DUI legal consequences
  • How to take responsibility for past DUI charges or convictions

Gateway Foundation’s DUI program also facilitates discussions about ways participants can abstain from using substances, avoid driving under the influence and make safer decisions. Depending on an individual’s risk level, they may participate in outpatient or inpatient treatment while they complete courses.

3. 12-Step Support

Individuals with a significant or high risk participate in aftercare following their DUI courses and treatment. 12-step support programs are evidence-based methods that provide individuals with lifelong support for their recovery. In a 12-step program, people attend step meetings and therapy for ongoing community-based support. Attending meetings allows individuals to fellowship, receive support and offer to help others. 

Gateway Foundation educates individuals about step concepts, the 12-step program’s history, and how it supports recovery. We facilitate 12-step recovery and encourage patients to continue their 12-step programs following treatment. 

Family Support and Programming

Family Support and Programming

A person’s substance use disorder also affects their family members. Families need to heal and learn how to support their loved ones in recovery, so it’s important for family members to seek support. Gateway Foundation’s family support and programming offer services for any supportive individuals in a person’s recovery journey. A person’s close emotional connections can include biological relatives, friends, extended family, or anyone emotionally invested in their recovery and well-being. 

Gateway Foundation offers family therapy to help loved ones strengthen family bonds. Family therapy educates family members about substance use disorder, any co-occurring mental health conditions their loved one may have, how to support their loved one and how to care for their own mental health.

Addiction Therapy Services

Addiction Therapy Services

Gateway Foundation’s alcohol and drug addiction therapy services address patients’ substance use disorders and any co-occurring conditions they experience. This allows recovery professionals to address the underlying conditions and factors that can contribute to a substance use disorder. 

At Gateway Foundation, we tailor care to meet each individual’s needs. Our recovery professionals personalize treatment plans by understanding each person’s story, challenges, past, and goals. Therapy can help individuals in recovery learn how to process their emotions, heal from past trauma and learn healthy coping skills. 

Medication-Assisted Programs

Medication-Assisted Programs

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) incorporates medication in recovery plans. Gateway Foundation begins each patient’s recovery journey with a medical assessment to determine if they would benefit from medication-assisted treatment. 

MAT programs provide clients with prescription medications that can ease withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse. If you believe you may benefit from medication-assisted treatment, it’s crucial that you only pursue it through safe, MAT-certified rehabilitation centers. With proper guidance and supervision, prescribed medications can help people safely ease the detox and withdrawal process.

Evidence-Based Treatment

Evidence-based treatment is supported by scientific research, testing, and evidence. When the results of a recovery method are consistent and positive, it is considered an effective treatment method backed by science. Recovery specialists can choose the most effective evidence-based treatment options for their patients based on patient challenges and needs. Gateway Foundation’s most prominent evidence-based rehabilitation options are the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • 12-step facilitation
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Interactive journaling

Adult Rehabilitation Center

Adult Rehabilitation Center

Adult rehabilitation centers allow individuals to grow in their recovery while developing healthy relationships with others. In adult rehabilitation, men and women participate in co-ed group therapy and step meetings while they complete treatment. Sharing experiences and listening to others from various backgrounds can help people encourage, learn from and support each other. Gateway Foundation offers adult rehabilitation in the following forms:

  • Full-day outpatient treatment — also known as a partial hospitalization program (PHP)
