We Help Young Adults Get the Most Out of Treatment

Young adults are at a pivotal time in life. It’s an age where most are trying to develop healthy habits, create a strong work ethic, and understand how to build strong, positive relationships. However, it’s also a time when bad habits, influenced by poor decision-making, can be developed. GateHouse wants to meet you at these crossroads. We want to be alongside to offer support as you find a career, continue your education, build relationships and start living the life you deserve.

The GateHouse Approach

Our first priority is to find common ground with each client! For some, maybe it’s finishing or continuing their education. Others may be looking to reestablish relationships. Still others may be trying to find a career that suits them. GateHouse also believes family involvement is an integral part of the recovery process for young adults. Finally, GateHouse has experienced tremendous success with our widely respected evidence-based treatment format, employing assessments/therapies like these:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Brain & Body Trauma Assessment & Plan
  • Somatic Symptom Assessment & Plan
  • Nutritional Assessment & Plan
  • Weekly Physical Activities

Components of Treatment

Age-Specific Care—GateHouse staff assesses where our clients are developmentally, and creates a treatment program based on their developmental needs.

Individualized Treatment—After undergoing a comprehensive assessment, the clinical staff develops an individualized treatment program to meet the needs of each client.

Family Program—Anyone close to a struggling loved one can also sense the impact of addiction. Educating family members and friends about addiction allows the healing to happen together.

Commitment to Change—Developing a sustainable system of values and beliefs is the initial step in providing a base for this change. The client must work with family members and the GateHouse team to develop and maintain these values.

Developing Life Skills—GateHouse teaches the coping skills necessary to help individuals overcome barriers so they can continue on the road to defining their own identity.

Reclaiming Values—Gatehouse helps clients rediscover and restore values they have discarded by teaching the importance of personal responsibility and accountability.

Reestablishing Lost Relationships—Establishing healthy relationships in a safe, sober community is vital to the individual’s commitment to change and long-term sobriety.

How It Works

Interventions allow families to take a proactive stance. They help you reach out to the person who needs help.

When Is It Necessary?

Interventions aren’t the first step in helping an addict. There are specific situations where an intervention by a trained professional should be considered.

Intervention Letters

Intervention letters play a crucial role in an intervention. This is a structured way for you to structure your thoughts to be clearly presented to your loved one.
