Gateway's Eastman House Philosophy
Caritas Eastman offers supportive treatment to women at high risk, especially those who’ve experienced trauma and who are homeless and/or in the criminal justice system. The emphasis is on coaching and teaching life skills to help clients re-integrate into society as successful and sober individuals.
Areas of Specialization
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
