Residential treatment programs are for men 19 and older. Clients stay at The Bridge from 30 days to 10 months in this structured program. They address issues that led to addiction, cope with personal trauma, learn life skills, and address medical needs.
The Bridge’s residential program is specifically designed so the person finds safe passage from addiction to sober living. While in treatment, clients will have the opportunity for better nutrition thanks to a commercial kitchen built in 2015. Clients will get established with a medical home if they don’t have one. Family Care is available to help repair relationships and build a support system. Daily sobriety support meetings are held in the building to allow clients to hear from individuals who have found long-term sobriety and perhaps to find a sponsor or peer for support.
When graduating, clients have a plan to support their recovery and ongoing care choices.
To be considered for treatment, you must have an evaluation completed in the last 6 months. Our counselors offer evaluations at The Bridge or in a jail setting, but you can have one completed elsewhere in the community and have it sent to The Bridge for consideration.
If your evaluation recommends residential treatment, your name can be added to our waiting list. The Bridge’s Admissions Committee meets weekly to discuss who will be admitted next when a bed is available. Several factors are considered when determining who will be admitted each week.
There is typically a waiting list but The Bridge can offer outpatient treatment and daily meetings to support sobriety until you can be admitted.
