Expect Hope with Gateway

Gateway to Prevention and Recovery is a 501(c)3 non-profit located in Lincoln, Pottawatomie, and Seminole counties. We are dedicated to serving Oklahoma communities and families who have loved ones who have been affected by substance abuse and mental health disorders. We understand how devastating progressive addiction and mental health disorders are to the individual, their family, and ultimately the community as a whole. 

For more than 38 years, we have been dedicated to providing services that will not only enrich and enhance lives, but will save lives, reduce barriers to healthy choices, and provide education and support for everyone in our communities.

Our Services

Gateway is dedicated to serving individuals and families who have been affected by addiction and mental health disorders. Our prevention, treatment, and wellness programs bring health, hope, and healing to the communities we serve.

Our Prevention Team works at the state and local levels to stop or slow the development of substance use and mental health disorders before they begin.

We have best practice treatment services in Shawnee, Seminole, and Chandler as well as a Medication Assisted Treatment Clinic for those battling opioid use disorder.

Our Wellness program is rooted in creating healthy relationships with ourselves and others while making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life in recovery.
