Successful addiction treatment usually involves a combination of medication and psychotherapy. However, the treatment you need depends on any co-occurring conditions you might have or in factors leading to your addiction.

We believe in patient-centered treatment to heal the whole person. With a focus on holistic addiction medicine, we create individualized treatment plans to heal your body, mind, and spirit.

At Gateway Foundation Pekin, we believe that addiction is a lifelong illness, so we provide constant support, even after you complete treatment.

What is Psychotherapy?
According to the American Psychiatric Association, psychotherapy is a type of talk therapy focused on eliminating or controlling the symptoms related to mental health disorders. The goal is to help you become a better functioning person who is more content with life. Psychotherapy can help you deal with stressful real-life situations as well as traumatic events, loss, anxiety or depression. As there are many types of therapy, our staff works to find the one that best fits your needs.
During recovery, you can participate in our Individual Therapy Program, as well as in Family or Group Therapy. Through this program, you build a trusting relationship with your therapist and are proactive about your own recovery. As you work on the issues that you struggle with, you can begin to make clear plans for the future. At the same time, you learn to overcome your addiction.
Specialized Services in Our Psychotherapy Program
Since Psychotherapy involves different therapies that target specific behaviors, thoughts, and feelings, your treatment can include a combination of therapies. Behavioral therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy seek to help you identify and change the behavior patterns that contribute to addiction.
Our therapists are supportive, guiding and motivating you to build self-esteem, become more confident and reduce anxiety. You also learn coping mechanisms that prepare you to return to your normal day-to-day life. As part of your treatment, you might also engage in creative therapies and other activities, such as meditation and sports.
