WHY THE GATEHOUSE

Whether it’s a friend, a child, a parent, a relative, or an acquaintance, in today’s world, many people’s lives are touched by addiction in one way or another. At The GateHouse, our goal is to provide the best drug and alcohol treatment possible to ensure all of our clients exit treatment with a solid plan for their long-term recovery.

So, what makes The GateHouse stand out from other rehabilitation centers in Lancaster County?

The GateHouse Offers
Gender-Specific Care

At The GateHouse, we recognize that men and women have different experiences when it comes to addiction. The way they cope with it and the way they respond to treatment varies greatly. Because of this, The GateHouse focuses on individualized treatment for each client’s needs to develop a treatment plan that works for them.

The GateHouse Is Accredited and Has a Credentialed Staff

The GateHouse is licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). The GateHouse clinical staff are professionally licensed, or are seeking licensure, through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Certification Board.

Over the last decade, 76.3% of residents who completed treatment in our residential programs have remained drug and alcohol-free. Clients who enroll in our residential treatment centers and halfway houses are able to stay in supervised recovery until they’re ready to live on their own again.
