wellness service at Gateway


At Gateway to Prevention and Recovery, it’s our goal of our Wellness Program to create a strong culture of health and wellness among staff, patients, and the surrounding community. Currently, Gateway is working toward becoming a Blue Zones approved worksite so that the healthy choice becomes the easy choice. Gateway’s employees demonstrate a sincere practice of social wellness. Throughout the week, individuals sit down for meals together, share about personal struggles, and support one another’s commitment to self-care.

Gateway has experienced a strong sense of connectedness with the community. Alicja Carter, Gateway’s Wellness Coordinator, has been diligent in providing Wellness Team members with a weekly “Happy Wellness Wednesday” email that communicates self-care testimonies, resources, and strategies. In return, community members and various
organizations have attended the monthly Wellness in Recovery lunches held at the Senior Center, shared information and personal skills during wellness group session at Gateway, and even contributed financially to various wellness endeavors throughout the year.

Gateway’s Wellness Team intends to continue working together to support wellness in recovery and rebuild lives worth living. Join us!


Hello Gateway Wellness Team!  Mark your calendars!

Gateway’s #WellnessinRecovery Lunch

Tuesday, February 26th

12pm-1pm at the Shawnee Senior Center

$2 Lunch for ages 50+

$3 Lunch for Gateway staff, patients, alumni, family

$7 Lunch for Community Members

This fellowship is extremely important for seeing addiction in a whole new light and gaining hope for the future.  Each person that attends plays a special role in this community and is necessary for moving forward.  If you have not attended a #WellnessinRecovery lunch before, please consider making it a priority at least one time.

Please RSVP to me as soon as possible so that we can make sure there is enough food and seating.  Last month we had 30 people and the energy was extremely powerful.  See you soon!
