ABOUT GATEWAY REHAB – GREEN TREE

In operation since 1972, Gateway Rehab offers a full continuum of addiction treatment for adults and adolescents through its 18 facilities in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Gateway Rehab Green Tree, one of four Pittsburgh facilities, provides outpatient programs for individuals struggling with addiction. The Green Tree location does not offer on-site detoxification.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Gateway Rehab Green Tree provides three specialized programs to address gender- and age-specific issues commonly associated with each population. These include one of the state's only 260 (51.8 percent) gender-specific programming tracks, one of the just 112 (22.3 percent) tracks in Pennsylvania for adolescents, a track for young adults, and a program track for adults over 40. Before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial substance abuse assessment to help determine if components of these specialized programs would be beneficial.

Gateway Rehab’s treatment approach combines 12-step involvement with evidence-based treatment methods, specifically cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Clients participate in one-on-one counseling and group process sessions to address the link between destructive thinking and addictive behavior.

Educational classes on coping skills and relapse prevention are also incorporated into programming. For clients recovering from opioid dependency, Gateway Rehab Green Tree is one of the only 165 (32.9 percent) facilities in the state that offers medication-assisted therapy via Suboxone.

In addition to therapeutic and educational components, the program incorporates Twelve-Step Facilitation (TSF) to effectively (and quickly) introduce clients to 12-Step. Using a standard manual developed by 12-step fellowships, this model of treatment offers clients an outline of 12-step principles and practices. Clients also attend 12-step meetings and become familiar with program literature. If a client is opposed to 12-step participation, alternative program curriculum may be available.

Morning and evening sessions are held five days a week to accommodate client schedules. To assist in aftercare and promote sustained sobriety, Gateway Rehab invites clients to join the network’s alumni association and utilize its own recovery mobile app.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team consists of master's level therapists, life skills coaches, behavioral technicians, and other administrative staff members. A consulting nurse and psychiatrist are also available. Regarding staff of all four outpatient locations in the Pittsburgh area, 25 individuals polled by Rehabs.com praised their aptitude.

Staff Experience and Training: 4.2/5

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing, Rehabs.com has received three alumni reviews for Gateway Pittsburgh. Feedback was mixed. While one alum specifically praised the center's treatment of co-occurring disorders, awarding this category five stars, they gave holistic offerings just two stars and affordability only one. "Proper treatment. They really helped me with the dual diagnosis part," the alum wrote. In addition, alumni tended to give higher four and five-star ratings for discharge planning and staff experience, though reported a lack of family participation in programming, indicated by lower one and two-star ratings.

On Google, the facility earned perfect, five-star reviews from six users to date.[1] "Very friendly staff. Makes you feel very welcome and they very understanding," J.T. wrote, with P.S. echoing, "Skilled professionals, friendly, discreet, and effective."

Loved ones also gave quite high ratings overall for family participation, as well as staff training and experience. Loved ones typically praised the staff members. "Friendly staff, good food," one anonymous loved one wrote.

Though still receiving above-average ratings, holistic offerings received more criticisms from loved ones than any other aspect of the facility. As one anonymous loved one wrote, "Not many activities to participate in," with another adding, "it was an ok experience but it did not help my loved one."

Family Participation: 4/5

They helped my family overcome their addiction. They have been alcohol free for five years now. I think that they staff were overly helpful with my family and overcoming the addiction.

It doesn't work. My loved one relapsed (i.e., was drunk!) in less than 10 days after 28 days of treatment!
