When it feels like addiction rules your life, it is time to make the decision to change. Doing it alone is not always possible, particularly when you will face many of the situations that might have caused the addiction in the first place. A program that includes Individual Therapy to address your issues can be life-changing, getting you on the road to recovery.

Woman engaging in individual therapy with counselorAt Gateway Foundation Chicago Independence, we offer Residential, Outpatient, recovery and Alumni Engagement programs. Our experienced, qualified addiction treatment specialists compassionately deliver personalized treatment and care while addressing your particular needs. Our holistic approach to Addiction Medicine focuses on healing the body and spirit. We incorporate Individual Therapy, Group Therapy, meditation, and other educational and social activities to help you heal and grow. Since we believe addiction is a life-long disease, we support you from the beginning of your recovery journey.

Benefits of Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy allows you to participate in the addiction therapy services designed by our medical professionals to suit your unique needs. Our doctors, psychiatrists and counselors get to know you well and identify your particular needs. Then they collaboratively create your treatment plan. If you have a related mental health condition, we treat the addiction and the disorder with our Dual Diagnosis Enhanced treatment program. We also offer the Seeking Safety program if you have suffered trauma and need to learn how to focus on the future instead of the past.

For your personalized treatment program, we use a variety of evidence-based treatments and therapies. We make sure these are appropriate for your life, including your age, your gender and your life choices. In Individual Therapy, you receive one-on-one attention from our professionals, who focus solely on you. We help you overcome your addiction and teach you the skills you need to succeed. During individual sessions, you discuss issues that you might feel are too sensitive for group sessions. Additionally, you can work closely with your therapist to identify the particular problems that might have led to your addiction. At the same time, you learn coping strategies and get the emotional support you need to continue on your journey.

Treatment Programs at Gateway Foundation Chicago Independence

At Gateway Chicago Independence, we offer Residential Treatment, where you focus on your recovery without the distractions of everyday life. During your stay, you participate in a variety of therapies and services, including Individual Therapy, Group Therapy and Behavioral Therapy. Our Residential addiction treatment center provides specialized programs for parents, veterans and LGBTQ patients, focused on each group’s particular needs. Once you complete our Residential program, you can continue with our Outpatient drug rehab program, which allows you to continue treatment while you transition back into your life. This is also a good program option if you cannot take an extended absence from work, school or family.

If you lack a stable home, our recovery home program offers a safe place to continue working on your recovery. Meanwhile, you learn the skills to apply for a job and start your life. Our support continues once you graduate from our programs through Alumni Engagement. This program helps you keep focused on recovery, providing volunteer opportunities for you to remain involved with our Recovery Community. Alumni Engagement lets you share your recovery story, lead support groups or get involved in social events.
