As a former patient of Gateway Inpatient Treatment, I would like to share a bit of my experience, strength and hope to hopefully help another addict have faith that Recovery is possible and worth it. I checked myself in voluntarily to Gateway on February 12, 2018 beat down, broken, scared to death, humiliated and at my rock bottom. I knew that "living" the way I was that I would either end up hospitalized, in jail or dead. Treatment was my last option and I can testify that Gateway helped save my life! This was my first time in treatment and away from my children which I truly struggled with but the counselors continued to ensure me that when I completed and kept on the right path, that my children would finally have their mother in a healthy place mentally, spiritually and physically. They were absolutely right and they loved me until I began to learn how to love myself. I went in to treatment admitting I was powerless of drugs and alcohol but that doesn't have to be the case for everyone to be successful. I have learned that every addict is different and we all have our own recovery which we work at a pace that keeps us clean and sober individually. After 38 days in treatment, I completed the inpatient program and began my new life in the outside world. I did start receiving Vivitrol shots which helped with my cravings for 6 months into my recovery which I highly suggest for alcoholics and opiate addicts. I also immediately began Outpatient treatment with Gateway and was able to complete that program as well. Outpatient treatment helped me to slowly adjust to the triggers and reality that just because I am clean and sober doesn't mean that life stops. It taught me how to handle real life situations without having to use drugs and alcohol. It also helped me rebuild a new circle of people who were just like me since I had to change people, places and things in order to remain on my new path. I would suggest inpatient and outpatient treatment to any addict/alcoholic who is suffering because it truly helped my save my life, purge the fears I held so deep inside me that kept me sick, learn how to handle situations differently, be a better mother, daughter and friend and have faith in a power greater than myself. Thank you Gateway for loving me until I learned how to love myself. You helped me start living life on life's terms which has allowed me to recently receive my 6 month coin!!

Ever since I was here a few months ago, I have been on a better life path. They teach you so much about coping and life skills, plus the reason you think the way you do. No judgment at all towards anyone and they are all really engaged with the people they help. I would recommend anyone to this place. They cares so much about everyone and how they can do whatever it took to help change your life.

31 days there for treatment and I"m confident in my recovery thanks to first, my counselor Nancy who was amazing working with me and my family, second Ken (staff on duty) for replacing bad habits with positive structure, third Benny & Trish for being there when needed, fourth Ryan and Kassie along with Nancy for leading amazing groups and last but not least Barb for doing a killer job with insurance. Another awesome part of this location is the recreational therapy (weights, volleyball, basketball, etc,) daily to build positive addictions. Moving forward success at Gateway-Lake Villa and recovery after is determined by what I put into it. If you go to Gateway listen, take part and stay until treatment is complete (28 days).

My brother went voluntarily into the way out program. I met with his counselor who is very processional and cared about healing our family ties. My brother has been in many treatment facilities before but he commented that this is "real treatment." They only share a room with one other person, have their own bathroom, and attend classes all day long keeping the day full. They offer family counseling as well. You can also come ams check yourself in if you need help right then and there. Thank you Gateway for giving my brother a much better experience.

Had an awesome experience at Lake Villa. Met the most wonderful people there. Staff are very knowledgeable on addiction and they may seem harsh and strict but that is exactly what an addict needs is a routine and rules that need to be followed to retrain our addict brains. The counselors are so helpful and professional and the campus itself is absolutely GORGEOUS. (Not to mention it is one of the only rehab faculties that still allows cigarettes on campus, which is a huge plus when youre going through the stress of withdrawl and recovery.) Would absolutely recommend Gateway Lake Villa to anyone who is serious about changing their life, the program makes you face issues youve never had to face before while being sober and gives you the strength to accept your life as it is and the power to move forward making good decisions. Gateway was my last stop before drugs killed me; Im so proud to say with the help of the Gateway community I am now 90 days sober (& counting), and now a happy & productive member of my community. Thank you Lake Villa Adult Womens Program for saving my life. 💖 Also a heads up if you will be attending lake villa; yoga pants/leggings/tight/ripped pants will not be allowed. Pack only essentials because there are a lot of beauty products (hairspray, shampoo with alcohol in it, mirrors etc.) you wont be allowed to have as a safety precaution. The washers and dryers are extremely heavy duty and most of your clothes will be shrunken and scratchy by the time theyre done washing them all (required before you can have your clothes back) so dont bring any favorite items of clothing. Youre only allowed to bring 7 days worth of outfits in with you so packing light saves a lot of time for the searching staff. Make sure to bring a case of water or clear reusable bottle or else youll go insane being thristy as hell all day. Bring lots of envelops and stamps because sending mail will be the only way you can regularly talk to others on the outside (especially significant others). I apologize for the review being quite lengthy but the sheet they give you of what you can/should bring is outdated and incorrect so after making the mistake of bringing all the wrong things, I want others to know what to expect. GOOD LUCK & THANKS AGAIN LV!

My son has been in and out of both Rosecrance and Gateway. I find them both very professional and they did their job. Both places have various reviews, some negative and some positive. It's up to the patient to succeed. Get the help wherever you can.

My son currently is in your facility. His father put him there because of a court order. Finally after finding out where he is I am able to read some of the reviews. Personally I always research for things like this but it was not in my hands. I visited the facility yesterday it seems nice and the staff was professional. Hope my son comes out of this with a good experience! Sincerely, Shari P.S I will change my rating after I see the results
