Beacon House of Pacific Grove, CA is now a Gateway affiliate. The nonprofit partnership expands Gateway’s national alcohol and drug treatment programs to the west coast. The agreement will serve more Californians with the highest quality of addiction care.
How Addiction Impacts Our Country
In 2017 alone, more than 60,000 people died from increased opioid use. This past year, the Trump administration declared the opioid crisis a public health emergency. As recently announced, the Federal Government plans to spend $17B over the next two years 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 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.
Beacon House and Gateway
Gateway serves over 6,000 people a day across seven states. It is the largest U.S., nonprofit addiction 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 health care 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.”
With two drug and alcohol rehab center locations in Pacific Grove, Beacon House treats men and women seeking to realize a life without drugs and alcohol. Offering inpatient and outpatient programs, the center prides itself on providing a warm, homelike setting for those in need of a safe, comfortable environment as they begin a path to lasting recovery.
