In honor of the first anniversary of Gateway’s Swansea treatment center, an Open House is planned on Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 11 am – 5 pm. The opening commemorates the positive impact of substance abuse treatment and recovery on local residents living throughout the St. Louis Metro East area.

Whether traveling by car or public transit, the new treatment center is conveniently located near Interstate 64 at 1 Bronze Pointe, a professional office park with plenty of free parking and accessible to Metro and bus line stops.

Light refreshments will be served while community care providers and local business leaders network with other professionals, and learn how Gateway helps adults and teens gain the tools and knowledge needed for lasting recovery. Attendees will be able to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the location and understand Gateway’s integrated approach for treating opiate and heroin addiction, which includes on-site services for administering medications such as Suboxone® and Vivitrol®.  Gateway’s substance abuse professionals will also provide an overview of the evidence-based practices, relapse prevention curriculum and family programs offered at the center.
