Gateway Opens New Carbondale Youth Boys Recovery Home
February 28, 2017
Gateway Alcohol and Drug Treatment Centers has opened a new Youth Boys Recovery Home located in Carbondale, IL, to expand access to its comprehensive, evidence-based addiction treatment. The Youth Boys Recovery Home provides transitional services to teen boys after completing residential treatment. An open house will be held on Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 2 to 4 p.m. Gateway invites you to see the space, meet our highly qualified clinical team and learn about our recovery home services.
The purpose of the recovery home is to provide a productive atmosphere for youth boys who may not have a safe place to return to after treatment. Katie Stout, Executive Director at Gateway Carbondale, says "Our recovery home provides a much needed service for adolescent boys who need a stable and safe environment to continue their recovery".
At the home, boys work on educational or vocational goals with guidance from highly qualified clinical staff. The length of stay starts at 3-6 months, but boys are welcome to stay as long as needed. Stout and the entire Gateway team are excited to serve the community in this new way.
The Youth Recovery Home is located at 1080 E. Park St., Carbondale, IL 62901. Gateway will host its open house on March 9th from 2-4 p.m. A light lunch will be served and all attendees will be entered to win a Fitbit.
