Gateway Recovery Centre

Core Addiction and Mental Health

Those in the military, healthcare, police, and firefighting career see and experience circumstances unimaginable by the average citizen. And every day, they make difficult life-and-death decisions. As a result, they often experience moral injury, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and operational stress injury. Substance use (including drugs and alcohol) can become a way they choose to deal with these feelings.

At Gateway Recovery Centre in Peterborough, Ontario, just outside Toronto, our Core Addiction and Mental Health Program is designed to treat the root cause of addiction and mental health struggles, leading to long-lasting recovery.

Program Info


Drugs and alcohol are often used as an escape for those who’ve experienced trauma. Rehabilitation treatment from Gateway Recovery Centre can help.

Treatment From a Team That Understands

While we offer treatment to military, veterans, and first responders at other EHN Canada facilities, there was a demand for a space created exclusively for them to share and recover. The workplace experiences of these groups may make them feel less willing to share with those who do not understand. That’s why we’ve created a treatment program in which patients can feel comfortable sharing their stories and feelings. And our staff are professional, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental when it comes to their treatment approach
