Overcoming addiction is an uphill battle, but it’s not impossible. All you need is the right support. At Gateway Foundation Joliet, you’ll find a variety of addiction treatment programs available to you. Our dedicated staff commits themselves to providing comprehensive care that is convenient for those that need it. With a centrally situated location, we provide residents of the southwest Chicago suburbs and Will County with the attention that they need on their schedule.
What is Dual Diagnosis?
A Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program addresses both a mental health disorder and substance use disorder concurrently. This treats both conditions at once and reduces the risk of relapse in the long-term.

Individualized Care for Every Issue
Customized treatment plans are the key to successful treatment. For this reason, a dual diagnosis approach is at the core all of our addiction treatment programs at Gateway Joliet. This means that we acknowledge and treat mental health issues alongside addiction. Mental illnesses often either cause substance abuse issues or vice versa. Regardless of which came first, both require attention and treatment. At Gateway Joliet, our Substance Abuse programs aim to treat the whole person, not just their addiction. If clinicians don’t address a client’s mental illness, then relapse is a sure outcome.
8.5 million American adults struggled with co-occurring disorders in 2017.
Types of Prescription Painkillers
When appropriate, we also offer Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to our clients. In cases of opioid or alcohol addiction, medications can help ease withdrawal symptoms and make recovery more comfortable. Our staff always provides individual and group counseling alongside MAT, as medications alone aren’t enough to sustain recovery. Of course, clients always have the choice to decline these medications.
What Kind of Impact Do These Substance Abuse Programs Have?
Making the transition back into daily life after treatment can be a stressful one. Most people need the additional support of an outpatient program to make the shift successfully. Our evening outpatient treatment option allows clients to return to work or school and pursue their goals while receiving continued support. Of course, we also offer traditional daytime options if those are more convenient. Regardless, clients can work toward building their lives back up with the comfort of the safety net of counseling and therapies.
