Gateway Foundation Addiction Treatment Centers Announce California Expansion
Pacific Grove’s Beacon House Becomes Gateway Foundation Affiliate on West Coast
CHICAGO, ILL. (March 1, 2018) — As of today, Beacon House of Pacific Grove, CA (www.beaconhouse.org), will be a Gateway Foundation affiliate (www.gatewayfoundation.org). The nonprofit partnership expands Gateway’s national alcohol and drug treatment programs to California. The agreement will serve more Californians with the highest quality of addiction care.
In 2017 alone, more than 60,000 people died from increased opioid use. As recently announced by the Federal Government, for the next two years it will spend $17B to combat this crisis. “More communities than ever before are negatively impacted by opioid use. Our nation needs stronger treatment alignments -- like ours -- across the U.S., to effectively combat this epidemic,” says Dr. Tom Britton, Gateway Foundation President, CEO. “For 60 years Beacon House made great strides in addiction treatment and care. This new partnership continues our health care mission to treat more residents and clients more effectively,” adds Phyllis Meagher, Beacon House President, CEO.
Gateway Foundation serves over 6,000 people a day across seven states. It is the largest U.S., nonprofit treatment provider specializing in substance use disorders. Beacon House addresses alcohol, opiate, and sedative addiction, among other addictions.
“For our existing clients and stakeholders, this partnership means we are stronger and better together. We advance all effective treatments available and will create innovative, new programs, said Britton. “Working together, we lead the way for community-based, integrated healthcare for people in need. We look forward to building up Northern California’s addiction treatment capacity.” Meagher adds, “Beacon House will have its biggest outreach footprint ever under this partnership -- and with a nonprofit partner with 50 years of sound experience. This is something Californians should be proud of.”
