Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment recently completed major cosmetic renovations to its residential drug rehab center located in Lake Villa, IL. Built to last, the “Main House” of the beloved substance abuse treatment center dates back to the 1920’s. Originally built as a private lakeside residence, the 45-acre estate also once was a retreat for Catholic nuns prior to Gateway Foundation’s acquisition in 1972.

Located approximately 50 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, the Lake Villa drg treatment center is situated along the shores of the Fox Lake. The peaceful location offers men, women and adolescent males the opportunity to pursue sobriety distraction-free, surrounded by nature.

“We embraced the remodeling project as an opportunity to not only revitalize the atmosphere here yet also make it as convenient as possible for individuals to focus on recovery. It’s our goal for each person to walk away confident and prepared to tackle life’s challenges without the use of alcohol or drugs,” explains Patricia Ryding, Executive Director, Lake Villa.

The renovated public spaces and corridors incorporate a soothing palette in hues of tan and green with purple and gold accents. Inviting lounge areas feature new comfortable furnishings and flat screen televisions. The updates to the guest rooms include new contemporary furnishings and linens. For easier accessibility, select guest rooms were reconfigured to make way for new areas dedicated to group counseling sessions, studies, meditation and DIY laundry.

“The response to the enhancements here at the Lake Villa treatment center has been extremely positive. The development team did an incredible job of creating a relaxed atmosphere with the look and feel of a stunning resort,” says Ms. Ryding.
