Corrections, Gateway’s Sister Division

Gateway Corrections serves men and women in secure in-custody settings as well as community corrections programs. As the largest nonprofit corrections treatment provider, we currently have 42 correctional treatment and/or service locations in six states including Florida, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Texas and Wyoming. We are proud to serve nearly 8,000 people every day.

The overarching goal of all services provided by Gateway Corrections is to affect a reduction in an individual’s potential for relapse and recidivism through a broad spectrum of programming, which includes comprehensive assessment of offenders’ risks and needs; interactive group processes; individual therapy; recovery knowledge and skill development; relapse prevention and reentry preparation and support. Our treatment approach is based on decades of experience, evidence-based and best practices, training and research. Services are gender-responsive and trauma-informed.

In addition to direct treatment services, Gateway Corrections also provides facility management and supervision for several community corrections programs. We are proud to provide proven solutions for criminal justice involved persons—services that reduce recidivism and rebuild lives.
