Youth Detox opens in Kelowna

Young people and their families now have a place to turn when they are ready to stop using drugs. The Central Okanagan has been without youth detox services for over a decade since the closing of the Iridian Centre. The Bridge Youth & Family Services, in partnership with Interior Health, has now opened the doors to a 4 bed Withdrawal Management program for youth ages 18 years old and under.  

We have our own app!

The Bridge Family Programs Calendar now has its very own App for iOS and Android! From your mobile device, download the "Bridge Calendar" app to stay connected to your groups and receive push notifications for last minute closures and news.

After checking out the app, please provide feedback to the student developers at:
