young woman in need of an ADHD treatment centerADHD is a common co-occurring condition for patients struggling with a substance abuse problem. While treated with stimulants when ADHD is the only condition, ADHD treatment is different when it is a co-occurring condition. At Gateway Foundation Caseyville’s ADHD treatment center, we focus on helping you heal holistically, body, mind, and spirit. Our services focus on healing the physical effects of addiction while working on the mental and spiritual impact at the same time.

Gateway Foundation Caseyville offers residential programs where you can focus on recovery without distractions. Our staff provides guidance and support, and you learn to build healthy relationships. Caseyville’s strong recovery community is a source of lifetime support, which is necessary when you are dealing with a lifelong disease such as addiction. Our ADHD treatment center is managed by a team of medical and therapy professionals, who considered all your needs when creating treatment plans. From withdrawal management to our alumni program, we are there for you at every step.

Understanding ADHD

ADHD is a brain disorder that starts in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. The condition is characterized by inattentiveness, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity, which often interfere with your ability to function successfully. These are the behaviors that our ADHD treatment center focuses on. While some people can exhibit all these behaviors, others might only struggle with one. Scientists still don’t know exactly what causes ADHD, but some factors that might contribute to its development include:

  • Genetics
  • Smoking, alcohol or drug use during pregnancy
  • Birth injuries
  • Low birth weight
  • Exposure to toxins during pregnancy or when very young

People who have ADHD often also struggle with depression, anxiety, learning disabilities, and inappropriate conduct. Substance abuse is also common for people with ADHD. At Caseyville, our ADHD treatment focuses on helping you deal with unacceptable behaviors. When you can do this, you can also plan for a successful future.

Treating Co-Occurring Disorders

At Gateway Foundation, our Dual Diagnosis Treatment Center offers therapy and services to treat co-occurring conditions. We believe that you cannot treat addiction alone without focusing on the other conditions that might be related to the development of drug abuse. If the other condition is left untreated, there is a higher chance of relapse and falling into a negative cycle. Dual diagnosis seeks to empower you by teaching you the tools and skills you need to cope with your co-occurring disorder without resorting to drug use.

Our ADHD treatment is part of the services we offer. Our therapists work with you to teach you how to manage the ADHD behaviors you struggle with. If you also struggle with anxiety, Caseyville also has an anxiety treatment center where you can learn coping skills. We also encourage you to develop healthy habits that will calm your anxiety without needing to abuse substances.

ADHD Treatment and Other Quality Services

ADHD treatment can be a deciding factor in the success of your recovery. Addressing behaviors that might lead you to make impulsive decisions, such as taking drugs again, is necessary to achieve success. Caseyville’s addiction therapy services are evidence-based and supported by scientific research. They have also been in use for many years because they are successful in treating addiction and other conditions. These services include:

As a non-profit organization, we also believe that treatment should be affordable at our ADHD treatment center. For this reason, we offer financing and accept in and out of network insurance coverage. When you are ready to overcome addiction and receive ADHD treatment, call us at 618.345.3970. Start your recovery journey and look forward to a new, healthy, sober you.
