ABOUT GATEWAY FOUNDATION — DELAWARE ALCOHOL & DRUG TREATMENT CENTER

The Gateway Foundation operates 10 substance abuse treatment facilities in Illinois as well as this single center in Delaware. Located on the grounds of the Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill, in central Smyrna, Del., the center offers residential treatment for men who are struggling with substance abuse and dual diagnosis.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Gateway Foundation’s programs are based on the 12-Steps, and the basic building blocks of treatment are individual, group, and family therapy, and education about substance abuse. The center also uses evidence-based practices such as the Seeking Safety program and motivational interviewing (MI), as well as anger management and crisis prevention training.

The Delaware location offers medication-assisted treatment using Vivitrol as well as HIV early intervention services and counseling.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Gateway Foundation’s president is a PhD-level counselor. The center does not currently publish any further information about its staff’s credentials; however, the two individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it a four-star and a five-star rating out of five.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings; however, the two individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the center four- and five-star ratings for its accommodations, meals, and cleanliness.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date gave mostly positive feedback, awarding the center five stars for its exercise options and 12-step program, four stars for its overall effectiveness and treatment for co-occurring disorders, and two stars for its holistic and counseling options. “It was a good facility, but very expensive,” the anonymous reviewer wrote.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The single loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date would recommend treatment at this facility, and gave the center four out of five stars for most of the 15 evaluated treatment metrics, including its family program, holistic and counseling options, and treatment for co-occurring disorders. “Helped in the recovery process. The property was nice in the rehab, the rest of the property was abandoned,” the anonymous reviewer wrote.

WHAT STAFF SAY

At the time of this writing, secondary review sites yielded mixed feedback from employees and former employees of Gateway Foundation (though it should be noted that these reviews apply to the organization in general, rather than the Smyrna location in particular). The center had average ratings of 3.3 out of five stars based on 85 reviews on Indeed, and three out of five stars based on 63 reviews on Glassdoor.[1] [2] Reviewers often spoke highly of the organization’s mission and the opportunities to help others and continue with their professional education, but complained of low pay and poor relationships with upper management. “Clinical staff is excellent, free meals, free continuing education hours, great work environment… Overworked, underpaid, understaffed at all times high turnover,” one anonymous staffer from the location in Carbondale, Ill., wrote in a representative review on Glassdoor.

FINANCING

Gateway Foundation accepts health insurance, and is in-network with providers including Aetna, Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, and United. Clients may also pay for their own treatment via cash, check, credit, or debit card. The single alum polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s affordability gave it four stars.

Helped in the recovery process. The property was nice in the rehab, the rest of the property was abandoned. It helped my plan and take steps for a long term recovery prosess.

Per our policies, we do not remove User Reviews at the request of a facility.

Treatment facilities can and are encouraged to respond directly to any User Review, positive or negative. In fact, visitors are more likely to favorably consider a facility that actively responds to criticism (and praise!) to one that doesn’t.
