Gateway Partnered with the SIU School of Medicine and the Illinois State Medical Society to present “In Plain Sight? Tools for Recognition and Management of Substance Abuse in the Primary Care Setting” on Wednesday, June 3, 2015. The event was very well received by an audience of over 90 doctors, nurses and clinicians. Feedback was very supportive of the need for more education on the topic of substance abuse and substance abuse treatment.

In an effort to further educate medical professionals on recognizing the signs and symptoms of Substance Abuse, Gateway Alcohol & Drug Treatment’s  Corporate Medical Director, Dr. John Larson presented “”Identifying and Treating Substance Use Disorders” at the “In Plain Sight?” Conference.
