Using an integrated approach to substance abuse treatment, Gateway Foundation's Mindfulness-Based Sobriety outpatient program is based on two practices listed in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. The new center in Bloomingdale provides treatment for individuals that may have co-occurring mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, grief, guilt or relationship problems in conjunction with substance abuse issues, as well as aftercare for support following treatment. Adults in outpatient treatment will focus on improving awareness, quality of life issues, recognizing one's strengths and truer personal values, learning strategies to avoid or cope with high-risk situations, enhancing motivation and development of coping skills.
The program also includes:
- Substance abuse education and group counseling tailored to the needs of adults utilizing an evidence-based relapse prevention curriculum;
