Did You Know? Insurance Carriers and Medicaid Now Cover Drug Treatment

insurance drug treatmentSince the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) went into effect on Jan. 1 2014, all insurance carriers and Medicaid are required to cover the costs associated with treatment for substance use disorders on their insureds’ behalf. As a result, a significant financial barrier for treatment is now lifted for millions of Americans who deserve the chance to get life back on track.

If you know individuals who have been denied insurance benefits for substance abuse and mental health treatment in the past, please let them know the financial hurdle standing in the way of their recovery is no longer an issue.

Gateway Treatment Centers: More Convenient and Better Than Ever

While your life has experienced positive growth, so has Gateway! It was a very busy 2013, opening two new, state-of-the-art Gateway outpatient treatment centers and completing a major makeover at our Lake Villa residential treatment center.

Gateway Chicago River North: To better serve the needs of the Chicago area, a Gateway center specializing in Adult Outpatient Treatment is now located in Chicago’s River North district near the Merchandise Mart.

Gateway Swansea: In the St. Louis Metro East area, we relocated to Swansea from Belleville, IL. The center provides Outpatient Treatment for adults and adolescents in addition to family counseling and medication assisted treatment as part of an integrated approach to treatment.

Gateway Lake Villa: Last but not least, our Lake Villa residential center underwent major cosmetic renovations to provide a more comfortable, relaxed atmosphere for recovery. The renovated public spaces, corridors and guest rooms feature a soothing, natural palette. Lunge area updates included access to areas dedicated to studying, meditating and DIY laundry.
