Gateway Rehab Philosophy

Gateway Rehab is a substance abuse treatment facility providing inpatient and outpatient treatment for chemically-dependent individuals struggling with addiction. Upon the successful completion of medical detoxification, clients are provided 28 days of inpatient treatment including services such as group, individual, and family counseling, addiction education, relapse prevention, gender-specific care, and more.

Areas of Specialization

  • Out Patient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
