Bridge House / Grace House provides a long term residential substance abuse treatment program that encourages achievement, the recognition and development of one’s assets and builds self-worth as clients learn to accept responsibility for their behavior in a three-phase program:
- Stabilization (ASAM 3.3): In accordance with the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria this level of care/ program offers at least 20 hours per week of a combination of medium-intensity clinical and recovery-focused services. During the first 14 to 30 days at Bridge House / Grace House, clients are in the Intensive Stabilization phase of treatment and have limited contact with individuals outside of Bridge House/ Grace House. This time is used to assist each client in gaining insight into her addiction and to allow program staff to observe new clients without the confusion of outside influences.
- Primary (ASAM 3.1): This level of care offers a combination of low- intensity clinical and recovery –focused services. Treatment is directed toward applying recovery skills, preventing relapse, improving emotional functioning, promoting personal responsibility and reintegrating the individual into the world of work, education and family life. Services provided are structured activities, which include both individual and group therapy. These services are based on an individualized treatment plan.
- Re-Entry / Transition: Clients seek employment, gain employment, pursue vocational training and/or further education.
