Evidence-Based Treatment Model

Gateway Rehab believes that addiction is a treatable BIO-PSYCHO-SOCIAL-SPIRITUAL disease and effective treatment addresses all four of these facets through a long-term continuum of care. However, we realize that no single approach to recovery is always successful or best for each person; therefore, we offer individualized and multiple treatment options and plans involving evidenced-based practices to foster improved results for our patients. Some of these evidenced-based practices include:

  • Individual, family and group counseling
  • Cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT), based on principles of cognitive psychology and social learning theory, which teaches patients to develop new cognitive and coping skills for substance use behaviors and relapse prevention
  • Twelve-step Facilitation (TSF), a manual-guided therapy based upon the 12-step model outlined in Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and other 12-step fellowships. The involvement focuses on the patient’s acceptance of his/her drug use as a disease, using 12-step tools, and connecting with recovering persons in 12-step fellowships.
  • Pharmacotherapies, or medicated assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders such as Suboxone/Zubsolv (sublingual buprenorphine/naloxone) and Vivitrol/Revia (Naltrexone), in conjunction with therapy, counseling and 12-step programs.

Beginning with screening, diagnosis and assessment, then active treatment and continuing engagement in recovery-support activities as part of a long-term chronic care plan, there is a gradual realization and acceptance by the individual that recovery is a life-long process that demands ongoing commitment to achieve complete abstinence from all drugs.

Ultimately, for all patients, we provide structured guidance toward significant behavior changes, self-acceptance, the tools for personal growth, and a beginning experience in achieving health in mind, body and spirit.
