ABOUT GAGE HOUSE DUAL DIAGNOSIS
Operated by Stairways Behavioral Health, Gage House Dual Diagnosis of Erie, Pa. provides residential treatment for individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. The facility offers both short-term and long-term programs, from 21 to 30 days and 31 to 90 days, respectively. Gage House also provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to minimize withdrawal symptom associated with opioid dependency, although medically monitored detox services are not offered on-site. Gage House only accepts volunteer admissions.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
All clients are evaluated prior to admission to ensure the individual meets the criteria for a dual diagnosis and help clinicians form an individualized treatment plan. Throughout residential treatment, clients continue to receive weekly psychiatric evaluations for ongoing medication management and monitoring. To help clients acquire and maintain sobriety and mental stability, Gage House blends evidence-based treatment approaches, education, and 12-step involvement.
Residential treatment consists of a structured schedule of group counseling, one-on-one therapy, family therapy, and addiction and mental health education. Specialized groups may be available to address specific emotional and psychiatric issues, such as depression, grief, trauma, and abuse. Through counseling sessions and educational classes, clients learn a range of skills to help prevent relapse, such as trigger avoidance and education on practical coping skills. Involvement with 12-Step may include attending on-site meetings, reading fellowship literature, and performing associated “step-work.”
In addition to core programming, the long-term program also assists clients to secure self-sufficiency upon discharge. Clinicians may assist clients to secure housing, obtain employment, and link clients to opportunities for ongoing education. Clients also receive life skills training and attend budgeting workshops.
According to the facility’s website, aftercare planning is provided throughout residential treatment. By continually identifying individual client needs, clinicians help ensure “ongoing stability, growth and recovery after discharge.” Aftercare plans include blended case management and referrals to peer support groups, outside agencies, and community-based psychiatric services.
Gage House’s treatment team is comprised of psychiatrists, registered nurses, master’s and bachelor’s level therapists, and clinicians specially trained in the field of addiction.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Residents live in simple, single or double bedrooms with private bathrooms, and meals are served cafeteria-style on-site. The facility features on-site laundry facilities, a sun room, and outdoor spaces for recreation.
