They're not perfect, but for the most part, they deliver. It's a beautiful facility, well-kept and the clinical staff is caring. The ancillary staff could use some help, but they're adequate. They can't magically wave a wand and make the addict want to be sober, but they arm the client with every tool available. It's up to the addict to use them. If only any of us could make them want sobriety...

My daughter has been at the inpatient facility in Chicago and Lake Villa. As someone in the field I feel that I am in a good position to review these facilities. In one word: HORRIBLE! Don't let the nice intake people fool you. They get a lot of court ordered people and Medicaid people so if that is your lot then go for it because you will be right at home in the typical "institution" atmospher.....including being yelled at, shamed, and mistreated by other patients. Please don't misunderstand me, if you are on medicaid that doesn't mean you are somehow less than....it just means you tend to be subject to the type of providers that tend to accept Medicaid. When I was a young single mother I was on it myself so I speak from experience. My daughter transferred from the chicago to the lake villa facility thinking that it would be better there and it was just as bad if not worse. I have tried several times to check on her status and they won't even let her call me as she only gets two calls a week, not a day, a WEEK. If you have private insurance I highly recommend another facility. At this point my daughter will probably stay as the goal is to get sober and she seems to be ready to "go to any lengths". It is wet sad and upsetting to me that we are actually paying for her and us to be treated this way. I can only hope that this experience will make her realize she never wants to drink again because she never wants to go through this hell again.

This is the most horrible experience I have ever encountered from a healthcare facility in my entire life. Not only did it take them 2 weeks and numerous online complaints to get a call back, ultimately I was told that I wasted their time and they couldn't help me because I didn't have $250 a week cash to pay them for help. Although they advertise that they accept my insurance and I called my insurance and was told that they cover 100% of outpatient treatment. I was told my insurance would not cover any of the treatment. Inpatient or outpatient. Then I was escorted out with no advice, help, names of other facilities or doctors. How is this a great foundation??

My son attended the residential youth program in Lake Villa. Great place for teens. The enviroment was peaceful. The staff was excellent. I would like to see more of a 12 step program included with treatment. My son's safety never was in question. Not sure why the 1 review was so negative. If your a parent and need help for your teen, Lake Villa is the place to be.

I actually went to Gateway Lake Villa, after the Gateway in West Chicago looked even worse. I SHOULD HAVE LEFT IMMEDIATELY, but stayed to complete it for court HUGE MISTAKE. IT IS A 3 MONTH 90 DAY PROGRAM OF HELL. YOUTH STAY EVEN LONGER (6 months) This goes for all adult, bridge, or youth programs. WARNING!: Send yourself or anyone you care about somewhere else. I dont know where to begin. The staff is really unprofessional ( mostly gang members and some trashy women), oblivious, and abusive with their power . Staff let people attending there get ATTACKED, BULLIED, AND STOLEN from. I watched people get GANG BEAT and jumped by other rehab patients until they were laying on the floor just being KICKED AND PUNCHED. It was horrible I couldn't help, because then these men/young men would attack me, and if I told staff they would let patients know it was me that told SO THEY COULD ATTACK ME later on . People will steal from you (everything), piss on your bed, terrorize you in your sleep, try to fight you (It doesn't matter how tough you are), flood toilets on purpose, flash their genitals or hit yours, try to physically and verbally assault you and STAFF WONT DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT YOU OR YOUR ENVIRONMENT. The staff will suddenly smile and be nice when your family visits for SHOW, because they are PHONIES. Then to top it off they try to make you do manual labor for them (loading trucks, garbage pickup, dishes, cleaning the facilities like maids, etc) . I am not exaggerating or lying for some reason or motive. I just wish i would have been told NEVER COME HERE. DONT BE FOOLED BY THE "DIRECOR"s comments or whoevers praising this HELL HOLE. MONTHS OF TORTURE (literally in some cases)
