Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment has expanded its Illinois rehab network with the opening of a new outpatient center providing adult alcohol and drug rehab treatment in Chicago's River North district. The center provides outpatient treatment services in the evening after traditional work hours. Gateway Foundation Chicago River North will be under the Medical Directorship of Dr. Anjali Gupta.
Using mindfulness-based therapy 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 developing 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 or addiction issues, as well as aftercare for on-going support once treatment is completed.
An official ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house will be held on Friday, May 17 from 2- 5 p.m. at the new River North center.
