Gateway Foundation Opens New Outpatient Treatment Center in Pekin
Gateway Foundation: Illinois' Largest Provider of Alcohol & Drug Treatment Expands Network
For Immediate Release:
CHICAGO, Oct. 16, 2012
Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment, a leading provider of substance abuse treatment, is proud to announce the opening of a new outpatient treatment center providing adult and teenage alcohol and drug addiction treatment in Pekin, IL. Conveniently located at 11 South Capital near the Tazewell County Clerk's office, the center began serving the Tazewell County community in early October 2012. Gateway Foundation Pekin is led by Executive Director Kerry Henry.
"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.
The outpatient treatment programs at Gateway Foundation Pekin are not one-size-fits-all, but unique treatment plans that give individuals the highest chance for successful outcomes. The programs 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.
The outpatient programs have Morning, After-Work and After-School Programs for adults and teens. Adult programs are offered from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and in the evening from 6 to 9 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. Teenage substance abuse treatment programs are offered in the evening from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. For more information, please visit RecoverGateway.org/Pekin.
