Treatment and Staff
Gateway Squirrel Hill offers a variety of outpatient options for adults and adolescents suffering from substance abuse and mental health issues. Prior to entering any of the programs, clients must meet with an intake counselor to create a treatment plan catered to their needs.
PHP meets five times a week for six hours at a time. The schedule allows clients to continue with therapy and monitored support while returning home to their everyday lives. Treatment consists of a mixture of group and individual therapy. Group sessions involve evidence-based practices like CBT and DBT and cover topics such as relapse prevention, coping skills, healthy relationships, the 12 steps, self-esteem and anger management. Support for mental health issues is also available. Clients typically spend a total of 12 weeks in this program.
IOP offers treatment three times a week for three hours at a time and typically also lasts for 12 weeks. Topics and modalities used are similar to those in PHP. Clients are encouraged to attend AA/NA meetings during their free time, though attendance is not mandatory.
For those who want a less intensive and more flexible option, individual therapy can be used as its own form of treatment. These hour-long sessions usually occur on a weekly basis, providing clients with individual attention and privacy. The 12 steps can be included when needed. The staff consists of Master’s-level therapists and LADCs. Group sizes for IOP and PHP range from eight to 12 clients at a time.
