Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment, provider of substance abuse treatment, has announced the opening of a new outpatient treatment center providing adult and teenage alcohol and drug addiction treatment in Pekin, IL.

"Outpatient addiction treatment can be a good choice for people that have a strong support system, a stable living situation and the motivation to change. Our substance abuse experts will take the necessary time to understand the specific needs of each person. We then develop a customized treatment plan with recommendations for the most appropriate care based on an individual's substance abuse and mental health history," explains Kerry Henry, Executive Director of Gateway Foundation Pekin.

The outpatient treatment programs at Gateway Foundation Pekin include substance abuse education and group counseling tailored to the needs of adults and troubled teens utilizing evidence-based relapse prevention curriculums as well as individual and family counseling as needed. 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 development of 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 issues, as well as aftercare for on-going support once treatment is completed.
