Better Addiction Treatment Results with Evidence-Based Practices

Group Therapy Room at Gateway Chicago River North

Adults in Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment at Gateway Chicago River North are discovering how satisfying life can be in recovery through the use of evidence-based practices, such as Mindfulness-Based Sobriety and SMART Recovery.

Addiction typically derails one’s priorities and goals. With the support of a dedicated counselor, individuals re-connect with their core values, set and attain goals, and work through issues holding them back.

Evidence-based practices are treatments that integrate professional research and clinical expertise to achieve the best outcome for an individual. Gateway is a recognized leader in the use of evidence-based practices, treatment models that work.
