Gateways Recovery Center provides assessment, education and treatment services for adults struggling to cope with alcohol and/or drug use and mental health.

Gateways Recovery Center Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Rehab Services:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) | SAMHSA

Medication Assisted Treatment helps patients cope with an addiction to prescription drugs/heroin (opioids). Their medical and treatment teams provide medication in combination with counseling (outpatient and/or intensive outpatient) that comprehensively addresses all aspects of opioid dependence. Gateways utilizes Suboxone and Vivitrol as part of MAT services.

Buprenorphine used for Detox and Treatment

Suboxone is a treatment for dependence on opiates such as heroin, codeine, oxycodone, etc. It is not for use as a pain medication. Buprenorphine, also known as Suboxone, is a partial opiate agonist that relieves drug cravings without producing the high. The medication tricks the brain into thinking it is still getting the opiate. It is administered orally - usually a film strip placed under the tongue - and taken daily by the patient.


Vivitrol is an opiate antagonist which blocks all effects of the opiate. The patient taking the medication receives no rewarding effects from use of an opiate. It can be administered orally in pill form and taken daily OR as a monthly injection administered by a medical professional.


Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication used to treat opioid and alcohol addiction. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse, making recovery easier. It comes either in pill form (ReVia, Depade), taken once a day; or in an injectable form (Vivitrol), administered monthly. Patients must not have any illegal opioids or opioid medication in their system for at least 7-10 days before starting naltrexone (this includes methadone, so if you’re switching from methadone to naltrexone, you must wait until your system is clear).

What does Gateways Recovery Center offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one's body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient consists of nine hours of group therapy per week (three hours for three days). To ensure success, patients are expected to complete all Intensive Outpatient sessions. Gateways tailors all treatment to the patient's specific needs. When starting Intensive Outpatient, each patient will receive a one-on-one session with their assigned counselor to develop their individual treatment plan. This plan will guide the patient's treatment at Gateways.

Outpatient (OP)

Once patients successfully complete Intensive Outpatient, they will transition to Outpatient treatment. Patients are expected to attend weekly and/or monthly continuing care groups. Based on their initial assessment, patients may enter directly in to Outpatient.

Treatment Types:

Holistic Treatment

Gateways is dedicated to providing holistic treatment for adults whose alcohol or drug abuse is interfering with their personal safety, career goals or employment, educational achievements, family and social interactions. Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being.

Individualized Treatment

The first step is to identify a patient's need. Gateways specializes in comprehensive assessments for adults. Patients participate in a confidential session with a licensed counselor. Following the assessment, staff help design a treatment plan that is personalized for each patient.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn't spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Family Therapy

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Individual Therapy

Outpatient Counseling consists of one-on-one counseling sessions with a licensed/certified counselor. Counseling is individualized and addresses the patient's specific identified needs. The patient and counselor work together to schedule sessions. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.
