The Bridge adapted its services several weeks ago. We repurposed our Recovery and Addictions resources to best support the hospital and acute care needs in our community. We moved our groups to virtual platforms to help keep our families safe and well. We supported all but our most at risk participants at a distance, to ensure the safety of our staff and those who engage in our many programs. Planning is now well underway to begin the gradual transition to the recovery phase of the pandemic.

A highly-structured, intensive 6-week program for an alternating group of 20 adult men or women, aged 19 or older, seeking substance use treatment.

What Happens Next

All residents will participate in creating a plan for their return to the community with the support of treatment staff. Work on a transition plan will begin early and will be a collaborative process between the participant, staff and the appropriate community-based resources. It will also involve the participant’s family or other supports and, whenever possible, a family session will be held with the participant and family members to review the transition plan prior to discharge.
