About Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment
Since 1968 our goal has been straightforward: To help clients get their life back on track and achieve a life of sobriety, free from drug use and symptoms of mental illness, that is productive, socially responsible, and healthy. As the largest, non-profit treatment provider in the country, we currently operate drug and alcohol treatment programs in more than 43 locations for men, women, adolescents, special needs, and clients diagnosed with co-occurring mental health disorders.
Gateway’s Community Division has treatment centers located throughout Illinois and the St. Louis Metro East area in rural and urban settings. These centers offer residential and outpatient treatment services for adults, teens and adolescents accessed through insurance, state funding and self-pay. Our treatment approach is evidence-based, which means our methods are clinically proved to work. When an individual leaves our program, we provide the recovery support individuals need as they become stronger using the tools and knowledge learned in treatment.
Gateway’s Correctional Division offers programs which operate in a variety of treatment settings such as prisons, jails, pre-release centers, day reporting centers and community corrections/ outpatient programs. These programs not only provide substance abuse treatment services for incarcerated populations, but also assist individuals in gaining access to a full spectrum of services upon their release to help maintain lasting recovery and dramatically reduce recidivism.
