There were over 70,000 overdose deaths in 2017.

You have reached the point where you recognize you need help for an addiction. You need to find a facility with quality substance abuse treatment programs. At Gateway Foundation Aurora, we offer quality, evidence-based treatment so you can recover your health and your life. Our holistic approach to Addiction Medicine focuses on healing your mind, body, and spirit.

In our facility, you participate in more one-on-one meetings with counselors and receive personalized care. Our sympathetic, experienced doctors, psychiatrists, and counselors deliver our quality substance abuse treatment. Whether you need Residential, Outpatient or continuing support through our Alumni Engagement program, our staff can assist you during every step of your recovery.

What is Dual Diagnosis Treatment?

Dual Diagnosis Treatment is a relatively new way of treating addiction along with mental illness. These conditions often feed off of one another. When one is treated without also addressing the other, both can return full force. Dual Diagnosis Treatment attacks both issues simultaneously for a more comprehensive recovery.

Our Vision

At Gateway Foundation Aurora, we believe in delivering substance abuse treatment that will heal the whole person. We integrate services such as meditation, therapy and educational classes to help you regain stability. At the same time, you learn the skills you need to deal with the obstacles you will encounter in your real life. Since we specialize in Dual Diagnosis Treatment, we offer therapy and substance abuse treatment programs to treat co-occurring mental health disorders. Finally, we also know the importance of a family support system and encourage family involvement during treatment.

We know that addiction is a lifelong disease, so we offer support even after you graduate from our substance abuse treatment programs. Our Alumni Engagement program and strong Recovery Community are also invaluable to keep you focused on your recovery. Engagement opportunities include sharing your recovery story with others who are undergoing similar situations, volunteering to lead support groups and participating in a variety of social activities.

Our Substance Abuse Treatment Programs

We offer both Residential and Outpatient substance abuse treatment programs. Our Residential program provides you with a chance to focus on your recovery without distractions. During our program, you have 24-hour support so you can count on our experienced staff to help you. Our support begins with our Withdrawal Management program and continues throughout your lifelong recovery process.

Meanwhile, our Outpatient programs provide you with choices to continue treatment. After you complete our Residential program, or if you are unable to leave work, school or family responsibilities, you can still get the care you need. Whether you choose full or half-day substance abuse treatment, our Outpatient program offers a flexible schedule so you can make it work around your established responsibilities. We recommend our Outpatient program if you also have a stable home, a strong support system and are self-motivated and seeking change. With Outpatient Treatment, you enjoy going home each day after therapy while remaining present in your normal life.

In 2017, over two-thirds of all overdose deaths involved opioid abuse.

We aim to change the core values that might have allowed the addiction to develop. With our focus on dual-diagnosis patients, we also offer the Seeking Safety program for patients who have undergone traumatic events.
