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. Treatment is offered in a safe, live-in environment at our facility on Gray Rd. It is best suited for individuals with more complex and/or chronic use for whom other community-based treatment approaches have not been effective.

Intake Dates 2020:
Monday March 30, 2020 will be the last day of service delivery for Bridgeway. We are suspending delivery of facility based treatment services for adults to deliver services that support the broader health system.
We are committed to resuming these services as soon as the current health system pressures subside.
Although we will no longer be accepting referrals for these programs, we will prioritize those individuals who were on the wait list or were scheduled to attend.
We appreciate the ongoing support of Interior Health and our community partners and look forward to our resumption of delivering exceptional treatment service in the near future.

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.
