Gateway Rehabilitation Center was founded in 1972 by Abraham J. Twerski, M.D., an internationally known expert in the chemical dependency field. Approximately 1,700 people—nearly one-third between 13 and 18 years old—receive treatment daily within the network of Gateway programs.

With 20 sites throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio, individuals can access programs that include inpatient rehabilitation, medical detoxification, and outpatient treatment. Gateway also offers a corporate services division that provides training for policy development and employee assistance programs. Another element of Gateway's services includes prevention programs in schools and the community, which encourage positive lifestyle choices and teen leadership.

In the fall of 2007, Gateway is opening a halfway house for boys, ages 13 through 21. The 24-bed program is vital for young men who complete a regular course of treatment but need a longer period of supervised living to reach full recovery.

Gateway believes the successful rehabilitation and ongoing recovery of young people restores and strengthens families, increases the likelihood of academic success, and makes schools and communities safer. “Gateway returned our son to us,” wrote one patient's mother. “Gateway helped to save his life, and we remain eternally grateful that they were there as a lifeline for him.”
