Addiction plays a role in every community, and while we can’t take away the pain from those struggling with addiction, we can help them work through their recovery to ultimately live their best lives. The GateHouse has done this every day since our founding in 1972, and it’s a mission we continue to fulfill year after year.

Here are just a few reasons to help the people in our community who are suffering from addiction by making a donation to The GateHouse through the Extraordinary Give.

We Treat the Whole Person, Not Just the Addiction


At The GateHouse, we believe that people entering recovery are not–and should not be–defined by their addiction. We recognize the need for individualized treatment plans. We know from experience that what’s right for one person isn’t necessarily right for someone else. We also recognize that the consequences and effects of substance use disorder can manifest differently from person to person. Because of this, we take great care to focus on the unique needs of each individual and work to develop a treatment plan that speaks to those needs.

We are Accredited and Credentialed


The GateHouse is both licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). All of our counselors are certified by the Pennsylvania Certification Board. Our staff includes counselors, master’s level social workers, certified addictions counselors, and certified advanced addictions counselors. We want to ensure our residents and their families that they are getting the most effective help possible, which is why we stay active with our accreditation, licensing, and professional staff.

Effective Treatment


Through our intensive and long-term treatment services, our residents are able to participate fully in aided recovery until they feel comfortable living independently again. We offer residential extended care, partial hospitalization and outpatient treatment, case management, and transitional living to all of our clients.

By providing a wide range of after-detox services, many of which are long-term, our clients can determine what the best course of action is for their individual recovery. It’s also been shown that long-term treatment has higher success rates, which is why we urge our clients to stay active in their lifelong recovery journey by taking advantage of our long-term treatment options.
