Help For Yourself
We understand that you are in a difficult place in your life. Let us help.
What can you do?
- Call us anytime: 402-477-3951. Anytime day or night, someone is at The Bridge to take your call.
- When is the last time you used?
- Today? If you are still intoxicated, you can voluntarily come to our social withdrawal unit where our Registered Nurses and Recovery Advocates will monitor your health until you are no longer intoxicated.
- More than a day ago? If you are no longer intoxicated but experiencing symptoms of withdrawal, you can voluntarily enter our Medical Withdrawal Unit where our nurses can help make you comfortable as your body goes through the withdrawal process. You’ll stay for approximately 3 to 5 days and have an opportunity to meet with a counselor to discuss what steps to take next and schedule an evaluation for treatment.
- What are you using?
- The Bridge can provide treatment for all types of substances including alcohol, synthetic drugs, marijuana, methamphetamine, etc. If you are using opiates such as prescription pain killers, methadone or heroin, please call us anytime at 402-477-3951 first before coming to The Bridge for withdrawal.
- When can you start?
- Now! We are open 24 hours a day, all year long. Find a safe ride to our location and ask to speak to a nurse about entering our withdrawal program. You are welcome to call ahead if you’d like: 402-477-3951.
- After withdrawal, do you need treatment?
- The first step to finding out if you need treatment and if so, which treatment program is right for you, is to schedule an evaluation with a licensed drug and alcohol counselor. Our counselors can conduct these evaluations. Please call during normal business hours to schedule an evaluation.
- How much will it cost?
- As a nonprofit, our mission is to help people even if they can’t pay. Depending on the program, we can help identify payer sources, waive or reduce fees or take insurance. Most importantly, don’t let inability to pay determine whether you seek the treatment you need.
- Who can get help at The Bridge?
- We serve women and men ages 19 and older in most of our programs including withdrawal. If you are a minor in need of withdrawal services, please contact your doctor or go to the emergency department at a hospital. Women can receive withdrawal services, respite and outpatient treatment but women needing residential treatment will be referred to another partnering treatment center.
