In a non-institutional, 24-hour supervised living environment, Bridge House delivers a unique approach to comprehensive and integrative stabilization and diagnostic services. Integrating group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, recreational activities, community outings and a thorough battery of diagnostic evaluations, assessment is taken far beyond the boundaries of what can be achieved in a hospital ward or doctor’s office. Bridge House’s comprehensive assessment and Bridge to Health Report bring clarity to patterns and cycles of maladaptive behaviors in order to chart a course for effective treatment.
Long and short-term goals are clearly established with each Bridge House resident as a personalized treatment plan is developed. Long-term goals are aimed at returning residents to full and constructive participation in society. Short-term goals are designed to help residents understand their particular set of difficulties, increase trust in themselves and others, learn the social skills necessary to develop healthy relationships, regulate emotions adequately to participate in activities of daily life, learn independent life skills, understand diagnoses, and increase executive functioning.
