Evidence-Based Therapy and Treatment Modalities


Bridges to Recovery uses a broad range of evidence-based individual and group therapies to fully support our clients as they work towards personal growth and healthier lives. In the comforting surroundings of our licensed residential facilities, you will participate in residential treatment designed specifically for you using the most effective approaches available today.

All treatment is provided by experienced, compassionate clinicians who can modulate therapies to address your individual needs and provide meaningful interventions within a trusting therapeutic relationship. We offer comprehensive and innovative care that synthesizes emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being in a dynamic, immersive environment.

We recognize the vital role your family plays in your recovery, and invite them to actively participate in your treatment. We offer support through family and couples therapy as indicated to address both your and your loved ones’ needs while strengthening relationships and improving outcomes.

Individual Integrative Psychotherapy

Your therapist will guide you through an exploration of your experiences, emotions, and perceptions while establishing better coping skills and healthier thought processes. Therapy will also give you a language for articulating and understanding yourself and the world around you, enhancing insight and decreasing isolation.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Rather than an open-ended exploration of the roots of your distress, CBT offers structured intervention to address your current struggles in a way that promotes both immediate and long-term change. Your therapist will help you identify and interrupt negative thoughts and beliefs and replace them with more accurate, productive, and positive alternatives.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy seeks to simultaneously change behavior and create greater self-acceptance through self-reflective and interpersonal skill-building practices. DBT consists of four modules: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation.

Somatic Experiencing Therapy (SE)

In order to bring the autonomic nervous system back into alignment and relieve emotional and bodily distress, Somatic Experiencing encourages you to release destructive energy and learn new skills to promote self-regulation. You will have an individual session every week with your SE therapist while you are in treatment.

Family Therapy

We offer family and couples support to all clients who are at a stage where they can benefit from this work. The ability to provide meaningful support and balanced relationships depends on having a clear picture of the illness and its effects on the client, managing interpersonal conflict, and establishing healthy ways of coping.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is an integrative therapeutic modality originally designed to help people with histories of trauma to access and process their memories in a healing manner. EMDR works to unlock patterns of destructive thinking and replace them with new ways of viewing and responding to traumatic memories and overwhelming emotions.
