*Notice of Priority Admissions to Substance Abuse Treatment

The Federal Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, has identified certain populations that must receive priority admission to treatment when the cost of the services is covered by the Federal Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment (SAPT) Block Grant. Since Gateway is a recipient of Block Grant funding, these populations have priority status for admissions because of their impact on families and society.

Preferences of treatment will be given in the following order:

  1. Pregnant women who inject drugs
  2. Other pregnant women who need treatment
  3. Others who inject drugs
  4. Others who need treatment

Q: How much will treatment cost?

A: It depends on the types of services you require and the length of time you require them. Your treatment plan will be determined following your assessment and our customer service representative will go over your plan and the fees.

Q: Do I need insurance to receive treatment from Gateway?

A: Not necessarily. Gateway accepts cash, credit cards, and some insurance plans. All of our services are provided on a sliding fee scale. Some insurance companies have co-pays, which must be paid at the time service is rendered. Private pay for services enables you to benefit from our treatment programs immediately.
