Since 1968 our goal has been straightforward: help clients get their life back on track and achieve a life of sobriety, free from drug use and symptoms of mental illness. A life that is productive, socially responsible, and healthy. Gateway Foundation is the largest nonprofit treatment provider in the U.S. specializing in substance use disorders for men, women, adolescents, and clients diagnosed with co-occurring mental health disorders. Gateway's professional clinicians support over 6000 people a day to successfully complete treatment by developing a personalized plan to treat the underlying causes of substance use disorder —not just their addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Facility Highlights

  • Insurance Accepted
  • Individual & Family Counseling
  • Group Therapy

Specialization

  • Dual Diagnosis Program
    Co-occurring disorders can be difficult to diagnose because of the complexity of symptoms. There are many possible combinations of dual diagnoses, which means there are many possible symptoms. Today, addiction and psychiatric health are viewed more as part of a continuum, and clinicians are specially trained to deal with patients who have a co-occurring disorder. We are certified as one of the only dual diagnosis rehab centers in the Midwest.
  • Medical Assisted Treatment
    To help an individual overcome mild to moderate physical dependency from alcohol, opiates and benzodiazepines, Gateway Foundation recognizes the benefits of medication assisted treatment to address withdrawal symptoms, cravings and detoxification.

Don't go here! Horrible. Feels like a court ordered boot camp..food was horrible. Staff was not friendly at all. After three days detoxing in bed, vomiting, shakes..ECT. no staff checked on me. Once I had strength to get up I asked to go to the hospital. They said no. I walked off the grounds and called an Uber. I was admitted into the hospital for major dehydration. Please go somewhere else!

Do not go there if you are serious about your recovery. There is one women's house and the ages range from 18-80. I am 52. It was like summer camp. Fighting and arguing and crying every day I was there. It would take 2 days to get an aspirin. Most of the "women" were court ordered to be there so they were not serious about the program. I asked to use the phone to call my husband, one of the counselors would not let me. I told her I wanted to leave, knowing my husband would of talked me out of it. I said I don's have to be here I want to be here but I can't handle the peanut galley. She looked at me and said 'BYE'. So I put my shoes one and walked over a mile and called the police. Nobody ever came looking for me. The staff treats you like you're making them go out of your way. DO NOT GO!!!! The food was awful. I gained 7 pounds in one week. No exercise. The place was dirty and gross.

Sadly We were very disappointed. This establishment is in NO WAY prepared to handle anyone with substance abuse issues- addictions - or mental health problems. They are not patient centric/ only insurance driven. They lack in staff education/development. Most of their staff are unsupervised, under- developed- and previous residents of their program. As I would find it completely appropriate to take a reformed resident and offer them a position to “pay it forward” the lack of professional development will be at my son’s and our families detriment. i encourage you to NOT choose this as an option if you want your needs to be met. I’ve waited a few weeks before I chimed in with my opinion, as it is not my nature to be judgemental or a blame seeker- however, Gateway has set us so far behind in what should’ve been a part of a recovery process. Now we have an entirely new host of issues to deal with. The lack of supervision was horrific. Provided opportunities for my son to be introduced to new demonds. It was a nightmare. The administration provided no support. I reached out to Dr and received NO response. My child had clothes stolen as well as his shoes ( the only pair we sent him with).

The absolute best experience I’ve ever had. My life is on track because everything I’ve been taught by gateway is exactly how it is now.
