Gateway Foundation: Impact of Substance Abuse on Relationships
Our work touches
more than just the lives of our patients, it impacts the lives of their
loved ones. One of the many examples is Debbie, who has been engaged in
the recovery community after her son successfully
completed treatment at Gateway Foundation.
In addition to
health, financial and legal consequences,
substance use can also fracture relationships. Addiction takes a toll on
more than just the person with the substance use disorder. In many cases,
families and loved ones of the
individual are also negatively impacted.

Exactly How Many Spudnuts Does Tadough’s Make a Day? Feat: Tadough's Kitchen Managers Scott and Kevin Pekin, IL - By now you’ve seen the re-branding of our beloved Pekin classic: the spudnut.

The Bunker hosts indoor, large-scale golf simulators: a big city offering in our Midwestern, small town of Pekin.

Eric continues, “I toured a lot of simulators in the Chicago area and then was waiting for the right opportunity.” Eric and business partner Chris checked out many property locations over the years, including the old dance and tumbling building on
