Failure to Launch
Many people who come to Bridges to Recovery have made multiple attempts at treatment, only to find themselves back where they started, or perhaps in even greater distress. Failure to launch–or not being successful in achieving your life goals–can cause tremendous frustration, hopelessness, and disappointment, shattering your self-confidence and trust in the therapeutic process, and fueling self-destructive behaviors. Social, professional, physical, financial, or spiritual dissatisfaction can immobilize you, and might seem impossible to overcome. Some of the challenges clients may face include:
- Lack of meaningful relationships
- Poor self-care habits
- Limited motivation and purpose in life
- Inability to live independently
- Unhealthy dependence on others
- Difficulty setting and achieving goals
- Failure to complete education
- Problems finding and maintaining employment
Our clinicians have the expertise to provide effective interventions and offer hope to those who are struggling with this sense of dissatisfaction and immobility. At Bridges to Recovery, your stay begins with an in-depth assessment period that allows us to gather information from you, your outpatient care providers, and your loved ones, to create a full picture of your needs and treatment history. Here, we can begin to learn what has and hasn’t worked for you in the past, detect patterns that may be keeping you from achieving your personal goals, and develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your specific needs to ensure success.
Through an innovative combination of evidence-based individual psychotherapy, group therapy, holistic therapies, and specialized programming designed to support progress towards your social, professional, physical, and spiritual goals, we can help you uncover and remove the obstacles that are keeping you from lasting wellness and life satisfaction.

Finding Meaning and Purpose
Failure to launch can occur when your mental health disorder is not accurately diagnosed or fully treated. Diagnostic clarity is paramount to ensuring that you receive appropriate, effective treatment; many people are surprised to find that they have been misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated for years, keeping them from successful achievement of their goals. Incorrect diagnosis is particularly common with co-occurring substance abuse, impulse control disorders, and eating disorders, which require specialized treatment that encompasses the full scope of multiple and intertwined conditions. It is critical that you receive treatment from clinicians with the expertise necessary to identify complex psychological illnesses and develop therapeutic protocols that effectively address your symptoms. Incomplete treatment that fails to holistically provide you with the insight and skills to move forward also puts you at increased risk of relapse into old behaviors. Because each person is unique, it is vital that your treatment plan allows you to process your experiences and emotions in ways that are meaningful and relevant to you. While one particular therapeutic modality may be standard for a particular type of disorder, you may need a modified, individualized approach to fully engage in the therapeutic process and make lasting progress towards stability and wellness.
At Bridges to Recovery, our small, intimate milieu allows us to provide highly personalized care to each of our clients, and to tailor your treatment plan to your specific circumstances. Our multidisciplinary focus offers a holistic experience that combines psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and somatic approaches to treat the whole person and allow you to gain both deep insight and concrete coping skills, through a variety of individual and group therapies. We offer innovative opportunities for self-expression and personal growth that invite engagement with your unconscious self, and reveal previously unrecognized obstacles to progress through our adaptive living curriculum. Our team of highly trained doctors and therapists support you in identifying your goals and creating the life you wish to have.
We also recognize that we are one stop on your larger healing journey, and work closely with your outpatient team to ensure that the progress you make at Bridges is sustained and enhanced when you return to your life beyond Bridges. Drawing on the combined expertise of our clinicians and the strength of our therapeutic programming, you can start on the path to continued well-being and a more stable, successful, and fulfilling life.
