Gateway: Know the Consequences


What are the consequences
Less than 1 in 10 people in the United States receive treatment for their substance use disorder.

Over the past couple of years, people have begun sharing their stories of addiction and recovery. Though speaking about addiction has become much more common, a stigma surrounding seeking treatment still exists.

Not receiving treatment and continued use can have severe consequences.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF USE?  
  • ​​​Legal problems, including potential incarceration
  • Mental health concerns
  • Health problems, including recurring hospitals stays
  • Permanent changes in the brain
  • Overdose, and even death in some cases
The only solution to addiction is treatment. Gateway Foundation is always available to help.

The clinical team at Gateway Foundation is dedicated to understanding each person's unique needs and circumstances and developing a personalized treatment plan that's right for them. Our therapists and counselors work with patients to help them understand and treat the underlying causes of substance use, not just their addiction to drugs or alcohol.
