Ed McDonough, Chief Operating Officer
As Chief Operating Officer of GateHouse Treatment of New Hampshire, Ed ensures that all staff members remain focused on applying the company’s core principles of compassion, service, and integrity to the early recovery process of their clients. He also oversees the day-to-day operations of GateHouse of New Hampshire, including staff and facility management at the New Hampshire location.
Ed earned his compassionate perspective while walking the difficult road to recovery himself. In 2011, his own life was miraculously saved when he became an alumnus of GateHouse Treatment and launched his personal mission to help others find hope, meaning, and authentic recovery. He carried this passion into a clinical position at the Tewksbury State Hospital Detox, where he honed his skills for helping find sobriety and a more fulfilling life.
It was also while working at the Tewksbury Detox that Ed began to collaborate with his closest friend and GateHouse founder Nathan Irvine to reach even more people who were suffering in the grips of addiction. Together, Ed and Nathan have combined the guidance of the 12-Step Approach with proven clinical methods to establish Gatehouse as one of the leaders in substance abuse treatment.
