Your Recovery

At Gateway Recovery Centre, we understand that your struggle with trauma, alcohol or drug addiction, or a concurrent disorder is unique, and that you may benefit from being immersed in a community of people with similar experiences. Not only will your trauma and addiction be addressed in private sessions, but you’ll also be able to heal alongside people who truly understand what you’re going through.

Our Space

Set in tranquil Peterborough, Ontario, near Toronto amidst rolling fields and green spaces allows you to truly focus on your treatment experience. We have both indoor and outdoor treatment facilities to help you stay active, because recovery is both mental and physical.
