Treatment That Works
Gateway Foundation focuses on providing the most effective therapies and clinical approaches throughout an individual’s substance abuse treatment; this includes the use of evidence-based practices. Evidence-based practices are treatments that integrate professional research and clinical expertise to achieve the best outcome for each individual. Gateway Foundation is a recognized leader in the use of evidence-based practices with proven results.
What does “Evidence-Based Practices” Mean for You?
Gateway Foundation will make decisions about an individual’s treatment based on knowledge backed by research, which makes it easier for our teams to determine the optimal substance use treatment plan for each patient. Listed below are the clinical approaches and therapies most commonly used at Gateway Foundation:
ACT is a form of mindfulness that can be beneficial in helping change behaviors and assisting with commitment to positive action.
This well-established practice is interwoven with other evidence-based practices. It focuses on changing destructive or unhealthy behavior patterns.
Developed at Gateway Foundation, Mindfulness-Based Sobriety is an integrated approach to substance use disorder treatment that focuses on helping patients build the skills to be more present and ultimately create positive change.
Motivational Interviewing helps patients recognize the need for change and how to move past the physical, psychological and social reasons for substance use. This practice keeps patients accountable to their treatment and recovery.
This coping skills therapy is specifically designed for survivors of trauma with substance use disorders. By learning to cope in the present instead of focusing on trauma in the past, survivors of trauma can heal and address substance use at the same time.
12-step facilitation introduces patients to the 12-step framework using therapists instead of the 12-step community. Patients are encouraged to link to an ongoing support network such as AA, NA or SMART Recovery in their own community for long-term support.
