  • Zoning-compliant locations with professional safety measures in place
  • Located in communities with convenience to bus stops, local businesses, grocery stores, and additional supportive services
  • Access to cable, phone, desktop computer, and high-speed wireless internet services
  • A unique opportunity for residents to obtain outpatient and intensive outpatient drug and alcohol counseling through The GateHouse Behavioral Health Services
  • Resources to live comfortably, like supplemental food, cleaning products, bedding, kitchen appliances, washer and dryer, and transportation to house activities
  • A live-in house manager at each location and a full-time, on-call coordinator

“My experience at The GateHouse was truly life-changing. The safe, structured, and caring environment allowed me to work through my problems with substance abuse and the underlying issues that contributed to them. I’ve been able to not only graduate successfully from their program but re-enter the world with a sense of pride, confidence, accomplishment, and the tools to stay sober.”

Residential Living for Recovery

GateHouse Transitional Living offers residents in early recovery the support and structure they need to be positioned for long-term success. Each of the GTL homes has a live-in house manager who oversees daily operations and provides support for each client residing in the home.
Residents residing at GateHouse Transitional Living may receive their therapeutic services on-site or at our Behavioral Health Outpatient Center on North Cherry Street in Lancaster.
Upon Leaving GateHouse Transitional Living, we encourage all our former residents to continue with follow-up services through the Behavioral Health Outpatient Center. Our outpatient services include outpatient counseling, intensive outpatient, drug and alcohol evaluations, and partial hospitalization. In addition to the therapeutic services, GateHouse Transitional Living residents receive case management services on an as-needed basis. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, please contact us today, or click below to determine which services might be right for you.

Our Services


Even as clients complete their residential program at The GateHouse, communication with case managers continues to occur to help monitor individual progress. Meetings one week, one month, and three months after discharge. During these check-ins, a follow-up questionnaire is completed jointly to determine any areas where additional support may be warranted.
