Gateway Foundation Offers New Outpatient Program in Chicago

Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment is proud to introduce a new intensive outpatient program in Chicago at its Chicago West Treatment Center.  An integrated approach to substance abuse treatment, Gateway Foundation’s Mindful Recovery intensive outpatient program is based on Dr. Alan Marlatt’s Relapse Prevention Therapy.

The Chicago West outpatient program utilizes evidence-based relapse prevention curriculum to provide the most effective treatment to achieve a successful outcome. The new outpatient program also provides treatment for individuals that may have a co-occurring mental health issue. Individuals in treatment for substance abuse issues will focus on global lifestyle balance issues, strategies to escape high-risk situations, improving awareness, enhancing motivation and development of coping skills.

Gateway Foundation Chicago West Counselor Stacy Lott says, “Individuals in our intensive outpatient program will develop coping skills and self-sufficiency by learning how to utilize strengths and resources they already have with the support of effective, evidence-based clinical practices.”

The program also includes:

  • Individual counseling as well as family therapy.
  • Integrated approach for adults who may be challenged with a co-occurring mental health issue.
  • Convenient hours Monday thru Thursday from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Delicious and nutritious dinner in our cafeteria.

Gateway Chicago West’s intensive outpatient program will be offered during the evening hours for individuals that have daytime responsibilities like work, childcare or school. And, this affordable treatment option is covered by most health insurance carriers.

Gateway is licensed by the state of Illinois and accredited by The Joint Commission, the leading accrediting organization for hospitals and behavioral healthcare organizations.
