New Medical Director at River North Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center
CHICAGO, June 20, 2013
Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment, a leading provider of substance abuse and addiction treatment, recently welcomed Dr. Anjali Gupta as the Medical Director for its new outpatient treatment center located in Chicago's River North district.
As the Medical Director, Dr. Gupta helps men and women address substance abuse and mental health issues and transition to a lifestyle of recovery. She also oversees administration of medication assisted treatment as part of an integrated clinical approach for dependency to substances, such as alcohol, heroin and opiate prescription drugs.
"It is particularly rewarding to work with a person who thought it was impossible to make it through one day without using, dig deep into the issues causing one's compulsive drug use and evolve into a happier, more confident individual," explains Dr. Anjali Gupta.
Dr. Anjali Gupta is Board Certified in Addiction Medicine and conducts research for the Professionals Program at Resurrection Behavioral Health in Chicago. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry from Tri-State University in Angola, IN. She earned her Medical degree from Indiana University in Indianapolis, IN, and completed her residency at University of Chicago and William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI.
Conveniently located at 444 N. Orleans near the Merchandise Mart, Gateway Foundation's adult outpatient treatment is offered at River North Monday through Thursday from 6-9 p.m.
