Gateway To Prevention & Recovery is a community-based treatment provider that offers a range of outpatient-based treatment services for adults and adolescents struggling with substance abuse, as well as being one of the state's 106 (52 percent) facilities with a track for co-occurring disorders. With its headquarters in Shawnee, Okla., 38 miles east of Oklahoma City, GTPR operates through four facilities located in the communities of Shawnee, Seminole, Chandler, and Stillwater.

In 2016, Gateway was designated as a CCARC (Comprehensive Community Addiction Recovery Center), allowing the treatment provider to offer medication-assisted therapy (MAT) and ambulatory detoxification services. In Oklahoma, the facility is among the 9.9 percent of facilities to provide outpatient-based detox services.


Upon admission into the program, clients undergo an initial screening and assessment to determine individual client needs. Along with medication-assisted therapy, which may include Suboxone and Vivitrol, Gateway provides a range of evidence-based treatment approaches to identify and treat contributing factors of addictive behavior. To do so, Gateway facilitates both individual and group counseling sessions.

Specialized group counseling sessions are also available that focus on co-occurring disorders commonly linked to addiction. Gateway holds group counseling sessions focused on depression, anxiety, and trauma. If necessary, Gateway provides referrals for clients who require psychiatric evaluations and medication management to diagnose and treat co-occurring mental health disorders.

Along with substance abuse, Gateway also holds group sessions on other compulsive behaviors, such as problem gambling, eating disorders, shopping addiction, and sex addiction. In addition, Gateway offers an employee assistance program (EAP) and student assistance program that address the effects of substance abuse on work or school performance. Program tracks for DUI offenders are also available.

According to the facility’s website, volunteers also regularly donate their time to provide clients with alternative treatment sessions. In the past, these group sessions have focused on nutrition, physical fitness, art therapy, job searching techniques, volunteerism, and money management.

Marriage and family counseling are also offered to involve loved ones in the recovery process. In addition, loved ones are encouraged to participate in case management, assisting clinicians to form comprehensive discharge plans. To promote sustained recovery, Gateway provides specialized aftercare groups for program alumni.


CARF-accredited, Gateway To Prevention & Recovery employs a multidisciplinary team comprised of licensed substance abuse and mental health counselors, case managers, family therapists, and social workers.
