Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment

The Substance Abuse Program at The BridgeWay serves adults, ages 18 and older, who are struggling with substances, legal or illegal. Based upon the SMART Recovery Model, the goals of the program are to educate the patients in the disease concept of chemical dependency, and develop an understanding of their decision-making skills and relapse prevention so that they may lead productive lives within their communities.

Under the care of a certified addictionologist, The BridgeWay offers two treatment options:

  • Abstinence-based treatment
  • Medication-assisted treatment with Suboxone which is used to help people reduce or quit their use of opiates, such as pain relievers like morphine, or alcohol.

For adults with substance abuse issues, medication-assisted treatment is an option in which prescription medication is used, in combination with behavioral therapy. Treatment is administered by a licensed psychiatrist, who crafts an individualized psychiatric treatment plan tailored to each patient’s specific needs.

Whether you need inpatient care or outpatient or intensive outpatient treatment, we provide the following services that help to treat addictions for adults 18 and older within a medical setting:

  • Medical detoxification
  • Crisis stabilization
  • Dual diagnosis
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pet-assisted therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Yoga
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Computer access
  • Visitation
  • On-campus support by Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, and Narcotics anonymous

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

Medical detoxification is provided under care of trained physician and nurses. Because recovery is a process that involves the entire body, it is most appropriately addressed through hospital-based care.

Programs are focused on long-term success through patient-specific treatment plans and aftercare strategies. Multiple levels of care are offered depending upon needs of each patient:

  • Inpatient treatment including medical detoxification, crisis stabilization and rehabilitation
  • Partial hospitalization
  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment
  • Outpatient treatment
