What to Expect in a Consultation

Our professional substance abuse counselors will ask questions to better assess the extent of one's alcohol or drug use. Determining the impact these substances may be having in someone's life and the lives of those around them is an important first step. Questions may include:

  • How is the person's general health?
  • Does the person have a stable work history? Are they currently employed?
  • Is the person enrolled in school and attending classes?
  • What are the relationships like with those around them? Are they distancing themselves?
  • What is the level of their self-esteem?
  • Has the person experienced a major loss, such as a friend or family member passing away?
  • Has the person displayed any signs of mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety?
  • What are some of the obstacles someone has to navigate to get themselves into treatment?

At Gateway Foundation we know the first step is usually the toughest. Call today and learn about treatment options that can help you, your friend or family member. With treatment centers throughout Illinois and insurance acceptance, affordable treatment is within your reach.
