Inpatient Rehab in Pittsburgh, PA

Residential Inpatient Care 

Our residential inpatient program focuses on early recovery and self-awareness skills to not only overcome drug and alcohol dependency but to give patients a new sense of direction and purpose. Those that have completed the inpatient program also come away with a deep understanding that addiction is a disease, and they are not alone in this fight for sustained wellness. Gateway Rehab offers residential inpatient drug and alcohol treatment for both male and female patients.
We provide our patients with acute and extended rehabilitative care.

Our dedicated team of behavioral health experts work together to ensure that treatment for substance use disorders is delivered with compassion and patience. We offer enhanced mental health support through in-person sessions and tele-visits with a psychiatric team led by our full-time psychiatrist.

At Gateway Rehab, we believe the benefits of inpatient treatment centers should cover all levels of recovery, including physical, psychological, and emotional.

Recovery Programs 

Acute Care Addiction Treatment

Approximately 22.7 million Americans require drug and alcohol addiction treatment each year. We understand that addiction is a chronic condition that must be met with a high level of multifaceted, ongoing care. By providing each and every one of our patients with evidence-based, personalized care, we help to ensure sustained recovery from alcohol and drug use. 

Our acute drug rehabilitation program will include a personalized treatment plan for each individual patient and will provide the tools needed to embrace necessary, continued care. This level of care really focuses on stabilization and early recovery skills. Our clinicians may recommend a transition to extended care, outpatient counseling, community-blended recovery housing, or provide connections to community resources based on what you both believe will help ensure sustained wellness and recovery. 

While in treatment at Gateway Rehab, you will also have an opportunity to explore recreational therapies including music, art, health and wellness, and adventure-based counseling. These program components not only provide creative outlets, but also encourage new, healthy hobbies. 
We are here to help you determine which of our many services are best suited to you or your loved one’s needs.

Extended Care Addiction Treatment

Our extended care option for rehabilitation mirrors much of the program components of acute care.  In addition to the extension of evidence-based practices in your treatment plan, you can also take advantage of four additional fundamental tools for successful recovery:

  • Life Skills Development
  • Transition Support & Community Reintegration
  • Continued Care Planning
  • Relapse Prevention

This program lengthens the time you can dedicate yourself to wellness and recovery skill development. Recovery from addiction is a lifelong commitment with many challenges. Set yourself up for success with more time focused on you and your recovery goals. 

If you are struggling with alcohol or substance use disorder, or if you suspect a loved one may be, don’t hesitate to reach out to us today. We are here to help you determine which of our many services are best suited to you or your loved one’s needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from extended rehab treatment?

Extended rehab centers involve several days of detox, intensive psychosocial therapy in a variety of settings, and planning for next steps. Extended care treatment is best-suited for those with severe and chronic alcohol and substance use disorders.

Who should attend short-term treatment?

Short-term residential programs are designed to meet the needs of patients with milder alcohol or substance misuse issues, and/or those who must work treatment into their job or family demands. Short-term treatment may not be appropriate for patients with moderate to severe addiction.

What is the first stage of addiction treatment?

Detoxification (or detox for short) is the first step in any recovery treatment program. A patient must first get rid of the harmful substances in their body before they can begin to work towards long-term recovery.

Does insurance cover inpatient drug rehab care?

Gateway Rehab proudly accepts insurance to make rehabilitation accessible to our community. Coverage for our services will vary depending on your insurance carrier, however, we are happy to answer questions to help you determine what may or may not be covered.
