Gateway Recovery Center

Women’s Residential Treatment

A residential modality offers the client a structured, safe environment designed to treat the whole person, including any co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, and personality disorders.

The treatment program at both Gateway Recovery Center, and Harbor House Hot Springs, not only meets, but it also exceeds the high standards set by accrediting and licensing agencies that require evidence-based practices and person-centered treatment. Our treatment program blends the traditional 12-step recovery model with evidence based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational enhancement therapy MET and adjunctive therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), hypnotherapy, and mindfulness. We utilize approaches that work for the individual.

Our clinical team is well-trained and experienced to address compulsive and self-destructive behaviors. Our goal is to help clients be restored to their best self, with an even higher quality of life than before entering treatment.

Transitional Living for Women

Returning to old environments can sometimes prove detrimental to long term recovery. To assist in relapse prevention endeavors, transitional living options provide a safe, chemical-free, recovery-based atmosphere. Single, double and triple occupancy rooms are available that include ample space for personal items and a study area. A social/lounge area is available and televisions and small refrigerators are allowed in bedrooms.

On-site staff provides 24-hour security monitored by a gated facility and video surveillance. Residents are required to be employed or in school. Special arrangements are made for clients who are disabled. At Gateway Recovery Center, and at Harbor House Hot Springs, transitional living is seen as more than a roof over your head, it is an extension of treatment that offers individualized care, outpatient services, and access to counselors in critical.

In addition, individual and group therapy is provided.  Clients have options of attending self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Celebrate Recovery, and/or a secular recovery support group.  There are many paths to recovery, therefore clients are encouraged to find what works for them to build their preferred future.

Specialized Women’s Services

The Specialized Women’s Services (SWS) Program is a 60–75-day program expanding residential treatment to meet the needs of pregnant women and women with young children (ages 6 and under). Many mothers, and mothers to be, often have special needs: learning to care for their children dealing with feelings of shame and guilt and recovering from being victimized by various forms of verbal, physical or sexual abuse. Using alcohol and/or other drugs became a symptom of even bigger problems.

The SWS program provides holistic treatment stressing the need for nurture and recovery of both mother and child, enabling both to grow into a happy, healthy and serene family. Along with individual counseling and group therapy, an extensive amount of time is devoted to addressing the myriad of needs of both mother and child(ren) such as childcare, transportation, medical treatment, housing assistance, education/job skills training, parenting skills classes, aftercare, and family education and support.

Clients and their children live in Keystone, a home on the Gateway Recovery Center property, or at Harbor House Hot Springs.   Play areas are available both in the home and in the fenced yard outside the home. Bedrooms are clean, comfortable and safe.  Specialized Women’s Services program works with local hospitals and clinics to provide access to medical care for residential clients and their children.
