Our licensed counselors provide services to members of the community who are Medicaid eligible in Illinois. Services may include mental health assessment, treatment plan development, therapy/counseling, crisis intervention, consultation services, and transition linkage and aftercare services.
Counseling services are also available to individuals who receive other services from Gateway Services. Those who participate have been involved in individual and/or group counseling.
Our goal is to eventually expand this program to serve the general public.
