On Thursday, July 21 from 3pm-7pm, Gate House Behavioral Health Services will be hosting an open house at their new facility located at 817 North Cherry Street in Lancaster City. Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray, who is part of the Lancaster County Anti-Heroin Task Force, Lancaster County Commissioner Craig Lehman, who has worked to develop a comprehensive response to the drug overdose epidemic, and Representative Mike Sturla, who has been involved in both state and local efforts to combat the heroin epidemic, will speak at the dedication ceremony to take place around 5:30pm. Professionals and members of the community are invited to attend the open house. Light refreshments will be served. RSVP is not required but is preferred to Alison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gate House Behavioral Health Services provides outpatient and intensive outpatient counseling to individuals recovering from substance abuse. GHBHS also serves as a point of entry into the system of care for persons seeking help with addiction by providing drug and alcohol assessments and referral services.
The Gate House’s outpatient programs are an extension of their existing long-term residential programs in Lititz and Mountville. Established in 1972, The Gate House is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “provide effective gender-specific behavioral health services that assist chemically dependent people to establish lives in recovery.”
