Professional addiction treatment is necessary for those who wish to end their struggles with the disease. At Gateway Foundation, we work hard to provide the best treatment options for our patients throughout Illinois. What is it about Gateway Foundation Caseyville that makes us the best option for treatment?
Our Caseyville Location
Gateway Foundation is proud to be a leader in Addiction Medicine and treatment throughout the country, helping over one million individuals and counting to win the fight against addiction. We are also the leading provider for treatment in the state of Illinois. With facilities like our Caseyville location, we can continue to provide the best care for those who need it. But what about Gateway Foundation Caseyville makes it your destination for addiction help?
Our Caseyville facility is off of both Interstate 255 and Interstate 64, making us easily accessible for southern Illinois residents. We’re also accessible to St. Louis residents. However, we are far enough away from St. Louis that our patients won’t have the distractions or triggers that a major city can cause. We also offer our residents the benefits of health-centric accommodations, like a gym with a weight room, outdoor basketball court, and sand volleyball courts.

What Are Illicit Substances?
Illicit substances or drugs are illegal substances that either inhibit or stimulate your central nervous system. Users can also experience hallucinogenic effects. The effects and dangers of these drugs have led to a global ban on their use.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program
In many cases, addiction is never a lone disease. It’s often occurring alongside an undiagnosed mental illness. Because the mental illness lacks diagnosis, the individual remains in a dangerous cycle. In order to provide the necessary help for both mental illness and addiction, Gateway Foundation Caseyville provides a Dual Diagnosis Treatment center.
For some patients, addiction stems from self-medication. When they struggle with an unknown mental disorder like depression, anxiety, or PTSD, they turn to illicit substances to manage their symptoms. In order to feel any relief or a sense of control, they continue to abuse these substances, which leads to an addiction. For others, addiction causes the symptoms of mental illness to become worse.
Without the proper attention to your mental health, you will never be able to treat your addiction effectively. A Dual Diagnosis Treatment center will provide patients with the tools and skills they need to successfully manage their mental health without the need to abuse illicit substances.
Gateway Foundation Caseyville is proud to hold accreditation from The Joint Commission. The JCAHO is a non-profit organization that works hard to hold rehab centers and facilities accountable for quality care and service they provide their clients. Receiving accreditation means that they recognize the high-quality treatment we provide for our patients. Their support also helps us to continue our work throughout the state of Illinois.
