Addiction Non-Profits Duel over Elementary School Conversion  E-mail
Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire

6/2/2018 - ATIN - Venerable Pittsburgh-based addiction operator Gateway Rehab and another local non-profit, Resources for Human Development, RHD, are at loggerheads over a $2.8M contract to convert a local area elementary school into an approximately 40-bed full service treatment center, providing the full range of services, from detox all the way to long-term residential care.

Gateway Rehab has over 200 employees in Beaver County, which put out an RFP for the conversion and ultimately granted the deal to RHD. Gateway Rehab has a 20-yr relationship with the county and the two are in a payment and fee-setting dispute that is currently being adjudicated by the state alcohol and drug treatment agency, for the second time.

Gateway has tapped into the NIMBY feeling in the local community, with Gateway employees speaking out at planning commission meetings saying that the new RHD facility will be an unnecessary duplication of existing Gateway infrastructure, despite the fact that Gateway intself bid on the conversion RFP  - losing out RHD.
