Premier private rehab for military, veterans, first responders, and frontline healthcare workers

We’re excited to announce that we’re now a part of the EHN Canada nationwide network of leading mental health and addiction treatment facilities. From now on, you can expect the same high quality evidence-based care from this facility that EHN Canada provides across its entire network.

Canadian Health Recovery Centre is now Gateway Recovery Centre, and serves military, veterans, first responders, and frontline healthcare workers for addiction, trauma, and mental health treatment and will no longer be a men’s-only facility.

Change is Possible

Gateway Recovery Centre is one of the top rehab facilities in Ontario and Toronto, Canada area. Our addiction treatment program challenges all the old assumptions about drug and alcohol addiction.

What sets us apart

The Evolution of Addiction Treatment Centres Is Here

Our team of skilled clinicians and specialists create tailored programs to heal the mind, body, and spirit. We treat drug and alcohol dependency, behavioural addiction, and concurrent mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and trauma.

 At Gateway, we work to treat root causes rather than the symptoms, often without prescribing mind-altering medications. We help our clients work through shame, guilt, and anxiety, and we address the fear, misconceptions, and limiting beliefs that often surround substance dependency, for true and lasting recovery. 

Our program works. Many of our clients have tried other inpatient programs but were unsuccessful until they found EHN Canada. Read their stories here.

Our Program

Gateway Recovery Centre uses evidence-based treatment methods that have been proven effective in supporting those who experience addiction and mental health disorders.

We personalize treatment for each of our clients based on their individual needs. Each client undergoes assessments with our interdisciplinary team to determine the best treatment outcomes. Care doesn’t end when a client leaves residential treatment. All clients receive an individualized discharge and aftercare plan with the tools and resources they’ll need to transition home to their support network. Here’s a snapshot of our programs:

Inpatient Residential Treatment:
Our residential program provides round-the-clock care in a structured yet supportive environment where clients can openly share their experiences and express their feelings. Our therapists use a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), group counselling, dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), and neuroplasticity education to help clients get to the root of their addiction and begin the healing process to create a new path forward. Client stays range from 28 days to 91 days.

Transitioning & Aftercare Program:
We are committed to helping our clients sustain their recovery therefore we offer support post-treatment through weekly then monthly check in’s to assess each individual’s aftercare plan and support them in making adjustments as needed. Clients are welcome to attend our alumni groups or book alumni counselling sessions for more in-depth support.

We offer inpatient residential addiction treatment programs exclusively for military, veterans and first responders at our private addiction rehab centre in Peterborough, Ontario. We treat substance and process addictions including: 

·      Alcohol
·      Heroin
·      Fentanyl
·      Benzodiazepine
·      Cocaine
·      Opioids
·      Cannabis
·      Methamphetamine
·      Amphetamine
·      Behavioural addictions 

We support clients with behavioural addictions including gambling, pornography, and shopping, as well as clients who experience concurrent mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, trauma, panic disorder, and others.

No one chooses addiction – but you can choose to recover. We provide the tools needed to live your best life.

Advancements in science and brain imaging have revealed how the brain can be re-wired to help develop new neural pathways to break the chain of addiction. Our addiction treatment centre utilizes the most up to date research in addiction, and neuroscience to help clients reach their goals for continued recovery.  

We utilize the latest scientific research, proven effective treatment modalities, and innovative therapeutic methods to transform lives through a structured program of individual counselling, specialized group therapy, substance use education, family education, extended aftercare, and more.

Reaching out and asking for help is the first step. With the proper treatment, in the right environment, it’s possible to transform your life.

We offer gender-specific treatments and services designed for military, veterans and first responders.

Our comprehensive services use evidence-based, integrative therapies designed specifically for men. Here is some of what we offer as part of our alcohol and drug treatment programs in Ontario: 

  • Psychological services (group and individual counselling)

Don’t Take Our Word For It

Our treatment model is based on the latest scientific research, strategically focused on the whole person, not just the addiction. We address addiction as both behavioural and biochemical in nature.

I thought I had a really good life. I had a beautiful wife, a good job, nice house and 2 cars in the driveway…But then it happened. I had an opportunity to try a certain drug…I spent the next months using day and night. It got to the point where all I wanted was the drug, everything else in my life came second to it. I hit bottom and knew I would probably die soon if I didn’t get help.


I will be eternally grateful for what EHN Canada has done for me. It is truly a house of miracles.
