While some of the Gateway Foundation’s programs offer gender-specific treatment with dual-diagnosis support, Springfield Treatment Center is a co-ed alcohol and drug program. With personalized attention from the program’s highly trained staff, clients can step gently into recovery.
Accommodations and Food
Located a few miles from the Illinois state capital, the 40-bed program houses everything under one roof, making it easy to get from activity to activity. The large college-like rooms are shared between three clients at a time and feature lots of natural light, twin-sized beds, wooden dressers and a desk. The large, single-level brick building also contains a spacious dining room, offices, therapy rooms and a lecture hall.
An on-site fitness center with weights and cardio machines can be used in the mornings and during free time and, in the outdoor area of the property, there is a basketball court, patio area and space to walk. Smoking is allowed but it must be done during designated smoke breaks.
Three meals a day are prepared on-site by a professional chef. With a full salad bar available at every meal, clients are always able to get in their greens. Coffee and snacks are available at certain times of the day.
Treatment and Staff
Springfield Treatment Center offers separate male and female residential programs, eliminating distractions from the opposite sex. There is also a residential track for male teenagers, which follows a similar structure to the adult programs. Treatment time varies between 30 and 90 days depending on the individual’s needs. Medically monitored detox is not available, although clients can take part in a social detox.
The focus of this program is on group therapy and substance abuse education. Clients meet with an individual therapist at least once a week, while group therapy occurs for several hours each day. Group topics include relapse prevention, anger management, self-esteem, life skills, employment, processing and trauma.
Treatment also involves educational lectures about the addiction-as-a-disease model. When it comes to 12-step recovery, clients can attend an on-site AA/NA meeting once a week. A family education night occurs once a week, allowing family members to learn about addiction and how to help their loved ones. Issues such as codependency, family dynamics and healthy communication are discussed.
When residential treatment has been completed, a variety of transitional programs are offered, including a co-ed Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for adults and adolescents, adult co-ed day treatment, DUI treatment and complimentary aftercare services.
The staff includes counselors, therapists, a psychiatrist and nurses.
Springfield Treatment Center is a comfortable facility that focuses on group therapy and substance abuse education. With a loose approach to the 12 steps and individualized attention, clients can recover in their own individual way.
