- Gateway Rehabilitation Center Gateway, a not for profit organization, was founded in 1972 by Abraham J. Twerski, MD, an internationally known author, lecturer, teacher and physician. It was opened as a 28 day abstinence based alcohol and drug dependence treatment center. Now Gateway offers a variety of services in multiple locations but with the same compassionate and individualized approach as in our early years.

- House of Hope The Jewish Tradition teaches compassion to those around us who are most vulnerable. Our committment to the Jewish community compels us to action. The House of Hope is the result of that action. The House of Hope opened its doors in 1996 to meet a community challenge: to help Jewish men overcome their drug and alcohol addictions and regain their dignity, self confidence and ability to function as productive members of the community. The House of Hope is the only residential recovery facility for Jewish men in the State of Maryland. It enables up to eighteen residents to regain their skills and strength in order to build a productive life. Providing a service for an unmet need, we are proud to say that we have succeeded beyond our expectations. Situated in Baltimore City, we offer our residents proximity to a flourishing Jewish community containing synagogues, hospitals, community centers and numerous employment opportunities.

- Internet Addiction Guide What IAD is is difficult to define at this time. Research to date has been composed exclusively of exploratory surveys, which cannot establish causal relationships between specific behaviors and their cause. While surveys can help establish descriptions of how people feel about themselves and their behaviors, they cannot draw conclusions about whether a specific technology, such as the Internet, has actually caused those behaviors. Those conclusions which are drawn are purely speculative and subjective made by the researchers themselves. They cannot be supported by existing data.
