Gateway Corrections Expands Services in Texas through the Award of 10 New Contracts in 2012

Gateway experienced its largest successful contract bid in history in Texas this year. Five of our six treatment programs in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice system were up for rebid this year, along with five additional programs. Gateway was awarded all 10 of the Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility (SAFPF) and In-Prison Therapeutic Community (IPTC) programs, more than doubling our capacity in the State. As the now exclusive provider of the vendor-operated SAFPF/IPTC programs, these five-year contracts give Gateway the opportunity to substantively improve the efficacy of the overall treatment initiative. Our successful bid included a modified program design that offers the most expansive breadth of service possible within the fiscal constraints in TDCJ's budget. Gateway now operates eleven institutional programs in Texas, with a total treatment capacity of over 4,500 beds. The Texas market currently comprises 54% of our in-custody treatment operations.
