Bridges to Recovery provides the level of care you need in the environment you prefer.
Over the years, hundreds of clients have participated in our program and been empowered to live more productive lives.
Mental health treatment at Bridges has proven to increase the client’s quality of life significantly. We observe that clients evolve from extremely dissatisfied with their quality of life (as measured by the Quality of Life Inventory) to being satisfied after a four to six week treatment using the QOLI T Life Quality Score index.
Upon admission, each client completes a Life Quality Inventory or QOLI assessment. This assessment provides a score that indicates a person’s overall satisfaction with life. From this assessment, a QOLI score is determined and provides an assessment of the client’s overall satisfaction with life.
Each client takes this assessment for a second time at the completion of his or her treatment. These scores provide evidence of the effectiveness of treatment received at Bridges to Recovery.
Clients Life Quality Score is based on how well their needs, goals, and wishes are being met in their life.

Licensed by the State of California
To ensure the highest level of care, Brides to Recovery decided to let our program be certified by the Department of Mental Health. The Department of Mental Health will ensure the quality of our program is ideal for treatment of a variety of different mental health and behavioral health issues such as Depression, Bipolar, Trauma and Anxiety.
Our facilities are also licensed by the Department of Mental Health to ensure our facilities always live up to the highest standards for mental health treatment.
Our facilities are licensed as Short Term Social Rehabilitation Facilities, with accommodation for only 6 beds in each facility. This type of facility is considered to be an alternative to a traditional hospitalization. We are therefore able to provide the highest level of clinical care in a comfortable boutique residential setting.
