The Bridges to Recovery Difference

Bridges to Recovery has been a pioneer in the field of licensed residential mental health treatment, and our preeminent program continues to lead the way in excellence of care. By combining the best therapeutic practices with rejuvenating settings and the comforts of home, we have created a complete treatment experience of unparalleled quality.

Documented Success

Our program has a proven track record of enhancing people’s lives in profound ways. We observe the metamorphosis of our clients, from the distress they are in upon admission to the dissipation of suffering as they move through the program, to the increased peace and fulfillment they bring home with them.

We are able to quantify this progress through the use of the Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI) index, a test of how satisfied people are with their lives. Clients complete the QOLI assessment when they arrive at Bridges, and again when they have finished the treatment program. We consistently see significant increases in these scores, indicating profound emotional shifts toward more positive, stable, and content lives.

Highly Respected and Experienced Clinical Team

The Bridges to Recovery team is comprised of some of the best practitioners in the field. Our licensed clinicians come to us from internationally renowned institutions such as Harvard University, UCLA, Columbia University, and Pepperdine University. Many of our primary therapists have leadership positions at highly regarded psychoanalytic institutions, where they are at the forefront of developments in the field.

Upon admission to Bridges to Recovery, you will be matched with a multidisciplinary group of esteemed clinicians who will collaboratively oversee and deliver your personal treatment plan. By combining their talents, we can provide you with the highest standard of care using the most innovative approaches.

A Comfortable Residential Setting

When you step through our doors, you can feel at home. We believe that people engage better in therapeutic work when they are in comfortable, warm surroundings that inspire serenity and introspection. That is why our program is based out of two welcoming, well-appointed homes with all the resources available to attend to your needs on site, located in beautiful Los Angeles neighborhoods.

With a maximum of six clients per residence at a time, you start your healing in an intimate environment with personalized care. You can relax with yoga and massage, enjoy our beautifully landscaped yards and gardens, and savor the meals prepared by our professional chefs. Private suites are available, and we invite pets to stay with you during treatment (a private room is required if you choose to bring a pet), so you can benefit from the support they provide. We welcome visits from family and friends and allow you to keep your laptop and mobile devices to stay in contact with loved ones while you’re away.

On-site Medication

As a licensed facility, we are able to provide on-site medication administration and management. Our psychiatrists work with you to develop medication protocols that give you optimal results and the close monitoring our residential setting provides means that we can observe and respond to any issues quickly to fine-tune your treatment.

Highest Level of Care

We deliver the highest quality care using the modern, evidence-based methods, delivered by experienced, compassionate clinicians. Our program provides several individual sessions per week which can include psychotherapy, psychiatry, Somatic Experiencing, and Neurofeedback, along with 2-3 daily therapy groups, and holistic therapies. This intensity means that you can be fully immersed in the work of recovery, gain faster results, and move on to a more fulfilling life.
