Substance Abuse

Substance abuse treatment at The BridgeWay, located in North Little Rock, Arkansas, is for adults age 18 and older who struggle with legal or illegal substances, including drug and alcohol dependence. Based on the SMART Recovery Model, our adult substance abuse treatment programs are designed to educate patients on chemical dependency, relapse prevention and help them enhance decision-making skills so they may lead productive lives within their communities.

Adult substance abuse treatment is provided within a hospital setting and features around-the-clock nursing care and evidence-based therapeutic techniques. With 14 licensed beds for chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders, the setting is small and secure.

We offer three abstinence-based treatment options for substance abuse under the supervision of an experienced psychiatrist. Programs are focused on long-term success through patient-specific treatment plans and aftercare strategies supplemented by a strong support system, and therapy sessions. 

Medical detoxification is provided under care of trained physicians and nurses. Because recovery is a process that involves the entire body, it is most appropriately addressed through hospital-based care in our adult substance abuse program.

Multiple Levels of Care

  • Acute inpatient treatment including medical detox, crisis stabilization and rehabilitation
    • Our inpatient program allows us to focus on addiction treatment in a structured, medical setting that can help patients with life threatening symptoms like drug detox and alcohol withdrawal, while also centering on long-term mental health and recovery goals.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program
    • Our PHP allows patients to receive treatment in a comfortable, structured environment in the day while living at home in the evening. PHP is a great step-down from inpatient care, as well as a solid foundational starting point for some. 
  • Intensive Outpatient Program
    • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) provide treatment for patients who do not need the rigid structure of inpatient or PHP care but require treatment. Usually a few days a week for a few hours, this can be a great step-down for patients or a fantastic introduction to treatment for others. 

Services Offered in a Medical Setting

  • Medical detoxification
    • A substance abuse or chemical dependency program at a facility with a detox center can provide a safe place to detox surrounded by medical professionals who know how to help. 
  • Crisis stabilization
    • During a mental health crisis, a dedicated team of professionals is key to getting the acute care needed. 
  • Dual diagnosis
    • Co-Occurring disorders are mental health issues paired with substance abuse disorders. 
  • Rehabilitation
    • Adult drug rehab isn’t an easy journey, but with the right tools the journey is possible. 
  • Pet-assisted therapy
    • Evidence shows that learning to take care of a pet can teach patients to take care of themselves and understand how others depend on them. 
  • Art therapy
    • Expressive therapies can give patients a healthy outlet to express emotions, a hobby or even a way to cope with other issues. 
  • Individual therapies
    • Group therapy isn’t always the answer, and individual therapies with trained professionals can help a patient find a breakthrough. 
  • Behavioral therapies
    • Therapies designed specifically to treat mental health disorders are based on your needs, no matter what they may be. 
  • Yoga
    • Mindfulness and relaxation can help with mental health issues and focus. Yoga is the perfect outlet to find this in some. 
  • Nutritional guidance
    • Our physical health can impact our mental health, and nutritional guidance can provide a window into dietary needs that could impact a patient’s recovery. 
  • Computer access
    • We live in the internet era and to be cut off completely from the internet despite receiving treatment seems old-fashioned. Our computer access-policy is designed not to cut a patient off from the internet completely but will still continue to limit access so they can focus on themselves and recovery. 
  • Visitation
    • No one wants to be isolated from their family or friends while receiving treatment, and our visitation policy will help a patient see their loved ones while working towards a happier, healthier life. 
  • On-campus support by Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon and Narcotics Anonymous
    • Programs like these can provide a much needed support system during and after treatment.
