Gateway House provides safe, affordable housing for men recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction.[hr]
On November 1, 1998 the Gateway House began operation at 2232 Vine Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45219.
[iconbox icon=”Home-2.png” align=”left” style=”round”]Men live in two or three bedroom apartments as they support each other’s transition into a chemical-free life. Most come to this 50 bed program from Cincinnati-area treatment centers or from local recovery community referrals.[/iconbox]
Without Gateway House, many would have to try to recover on their own, possibly in the same surroundings where they abused drugs and/or alcohol. Their odds of recovery would greatly diminish.
Gateway House residents agree to get full-time jobs, pay rent, share food costs, and attend Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and/or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings (on-site and in the community). They follow house rules such as curfews and program service.
After leaving Gateway House, many men have reunited with families, secured steady jobs, and helped others recover from the tragic effects of chemical dependency.
Gateway House consists of three restored houses on the side of a hill between the University and Over-the-Rhine neighborhoods of urban Cincinnati.
John Conboy, a licensed independent social worker with a Master’s of Social Work (MSW), serves as program manager. He opened Gateway House in 1998 as a privately owned organization. The Gateway House began operation as a not for profit 501(c)3 agency in January 2007.
