Opened in 1998, Gateway House is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. The facility offers adult males safe and affordable housing as they recover from drug addiction and alcoholism.
The center utilizes the 12-step recovery model to help the client maintain sobriety, learn accountability and rebuild lives.
Running a 50-bed program, Gateway House uses three historic buildings to provide its clients with apartment-style residential units. These are either a two-bedroom or a three-bedroom apartment and accommodates about four or five clients.
At any given point, about 40 clients reside in these townhouses located in the center of Cincinnati. Gateway House apartments come fully furnished and have a bathroom, a living room, and a spacious kitchen.
There are also random inspections to ensure that the apartments are kept neat and clean. Clients are permitted to smoke in designated areas.
A majority of the clients residing in these units receive food stamps, so everyone contributes equally to grocery purchases.
Rules and Regulations
Any client who wishes to join the Gateway House has to give a minimum 90-day commitment. Most of the clients are referred by local treatment centers and have to be sober and clean when they get admitted. Random drug and alcohol tests are conducted by staff.
Those residents who are found to possess drugs or alcohol or are under the influence are immediately evicted. Clients taking prescription medications can continue to do so, provided they show the original as well as the current doctor’s prescription. They also have to get it approved by the program manager.
Residents staying in Gateway Houses have to secure a full-time job within a month of joining the program. However, a part-time job is also acceptable for the initial 90 days.
Other requirements of Gateway House include attending five 12-step meetings every week, including one on-site NA/AA meeting, being present during house meetings, working the 12 steps and finding a sponsor. Gateway House provides several weekly NA/AA meetings on the site.
Residents cannot entertain any guests besides staff or Gateway House clients. Those who break this rule are evicted immediately. The team encourages the residents to develop a sense of camaraderie. During their free time, residents hang out together in the common area.
From Sundays through Thursdays, residents have to be back at their residences by 11:30 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays, this curfew is relaxed to 01:30 am.
