Gateway Foundation’s Outpatient Drug Treatment Includes Mindfulness and Medicine to Manage Addiction

Chicago River North Drug Treatment

Gateway Foundation has expanded its Illinois rehab network with the opening of a new outpatient center providing adult alcohol and drug rehab treatment in Chicago’s River North district. Conveniently located at 444 N. Orleans near the Merchandise Mart, the center provides outpatient treatment services in the evening after traditional work hours. Gateway Foundation Chicago River North will be under the Medical Directorship of Dr. Anjali Gupta.

“We want individuals to realize that life can be about more than drinking or using drugs. Typically, when substance abuse takes over, one’s priorities change and it comprises things that are important, like relationships, work and health. Learning about mindfulness-based sobriety and value-based living is intended to help those with substance abuse issues live a more purposeful and fulfilling life,” explains Gateway Foundation Clinical Supervisor Nick Turner.

Using mindfulness-based therapy while in treatment, individuals will focus on improving awareness, recognizing one’s strengths and truer personal values, learning strategies to avoid or cope with high-risk situations, enhancing motivation and developing coping skills. The new center also provides treatment for individuals that may have co-occurring mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, grief or relationship problems in conjunction with substance abuse or addiction issues, as well as aftercare for on-going support once treatment is completed.

The outpatient treatment programs at the Chicago River North drug rehab center are not one-size-fits-all. Treatment is person-centered, which involves individualized treatment planning that helps give individuals the highest chance for successful outcomes. The programs include substance abuse education and group counseling tailored to the needs of adults utilizing evidence-based relapse prevention curriculums as well as individual and family counseling as needed.

Adult outpatient treatment is offered at River North for Monday through Thursday after work from 6-9 p.m. For more information, please visit RecoverGateway.org.

An official ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house will be held on Friday, May 17, 2013, from 2- 5 p.m. at the new River North center. Event activities include:
