Addiction in any form is a destructive illness. It affects not only the individual but also their families and friends.
We believe that there is a misconception. The misconception is, that when an addict stops using and drinking, the cycle of destruction and misery ends.
Our experience is that this is patently untrue.
The fact is that, many addicts get clean, either through self-help groups or treatment facilities, and find going back into life – becoming a member of society, re-connecting with their family and trying to become self-supporting – is extremely difficult and too much for many to achieve. Another reason that many people find their new lives so hard is that their addiction has damaged them physically.
When an individual gets clean, many experience an initial ‘pink cloud’ of hope. However, life begins and many expectations fade, leaving them struggling to cope. They just do not have the skills.
Our mission is that our patients leave The Bridge physically and emotionally strong.
During their stay with us, they will learn how to plan realistically for the future; in regards to their work, their families and their social lives.
Many clients that come to us have experienced years of self-neglect. We will address this very important issue.
We offer a comprehensive range of services to support you and your family in your recovery journey from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. We place a strong emphasis on working with clients’ families and loved ones—those who are often most directly affected by the behaviours frequently associated with substance use.

At The Bridge you are with family… I left The Bridge full of gratitude, full of their wisdom, with gratefulness in my heart and in the knowledge that I will never walk alone…I will always have my family at ‘The Bridge’ to guide me.

The extraordinary team at The Bridge inspired me to make an effort when I had no energy. I left 10 weeks later to be with my family. I could walk again, I learned to eat well, I was taught communication skills and bridges were mended with my family. The team at The Bridge are extraordinary – thank you.

At The Bridge, alongside their programme, they reintroduced me back into life and taught how to cope and manage day to day….. Ali has helped me to further establish a healthy relationship with food and exercise…. The perfect dose of thorough treatment, therapy and The Bridge to normal living.
