“The GateHouse showed me a new way of life and opened doors I never thought I could walk through. I have totally changed my perspective on my place in the world that we live in. I thank the professionalism and guidance of the staff for everything in my life today.”
Upon arrival, residents will take part in our admission program. This includes intake, documentation, and orientation into the treatment program.
A bio-psycho-social assessment will be performed, and an interpretive summary will be provided to our team. Each resident will receive an individualized treatment plan that will be used through the three phases of treatment.
At the time of departure, residents will receive a discharge plan, an aftercare plan, and a relapse prevention plan. If needed, a referral to another level of care or facility will be recommended. We encourage all participants in our programs to continue with follow-up services whether it is our outpatient and IOP services or GateHouse Transitional Living, our transitional recovery housing.
