住宅的治疗 & 喘息的机会
Gateway Longview's 住宅的治疗 & 暂托服务 supports youth age 11-21. We offer care appropriately addressing needs of youth with specialized treatment plans that excel within structured environments or those who can benefit from immediate stability via individualized structure. Our residential facilities are comprised of seven care units, located on our Main Street Campus in Williamsville, 12 miles northeast of Buffalo, NY.
Our dedicated treatment team of clinical social workers, mental health counselors, residential counselors, and direct care staff focus on the overall well-being and advancement of all youth in care. Using evidence-based treatment methods, our programs address the needs of youth who struggle with social, 情感, and behavioral challenges which have lead to their removal from their home or other direct care facilities.
Our more intensive critical care program for those who excel with increased individualized structure, known as Changing Attitudes and Behaviors, offers additional supports focused on appropriate expression of emotion. This highly-structured environment also aims to help youth understand the effect of their actions toward others. 目前, we offer six units for males, and two units for females needing this level of care and support.
Youth enter the 住宅的治疗 program through the juvenile justice system, through a neglect or abuse petition against a child’s caregivers, or through a referral by the child’s local school district’s Committee on Special Education.
在关键时刻, we provide immediate access to safety, stability and support - 24 hours per day, 每周7天.

Such circumstances may include parent hospitalizations, 急性健康问题, or intense parent-youth conflict. Referrals are made through ECDSS workers, families must have an open case with Erie County. Youth can stay in the program for a maximum of 21 consecutive days or 30 days if their parent/guardian is in a substance use/detox program. Trained staff provides appropriate activities, 监督, and intervention through the duration of a youths stay. Youth will maintain their normal schedule of school and other appointments.
