“Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be.”
Bridges to Recovery offers three long-term residential treatment centers in Los Angeles, California and San Diego, California. Unlike many mental health facilities, Bridges treatment centers feature a truly home-like environment in which to focus on your recovery. In fact, our treatment centers are, by their very design, luxury homes. We understand that committing to long-term residential treatment is a monumental decision, and an investment in living a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life. And we know that we would much rather take the first steps of that lifelong journey in a beautiful home built on breathtaking grounds than in a sterile, institutional hospital setting.
Whichever mental health concern you are battling, be it depression, anxiety, trauma, a psychotic disorder, eating disorder, or personality disorder, our long-term residential treatment centers bring together all the elements necessary to help you achieve a more balanced life. All the elements except one, that is – the incomparably important element that is you and your dedication to achieving greatness!
We promise to provide you with unparalleled support, expertise, compassion, and experience – a team of the best and brightest in the mental health field, devoting themselves to you and your growth every day. We provide a safe, healing environment and will work with you to set goals for yourself. We will encourage you to be honest with us and yourself, and inspire you to be passionate about the new life that can and will be yours. There will be good days and days where you may have less motivation – and that is completely natural! But as long as you’re willing to give it your best the next day, we’re confident that your time at Bridges to Recovery will be one of the most important, positive turning stones in your life.
Whether you are battling the effects of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, OCD, compulsive gambling, or another mental health concern, it is essential to dedicate enough time to focus on the primary issue and all the issues that stem from it before diving back into your everyday routine. It is also extremely helpful that we are given the necessary time to provide you with a detailed diagnosis, and comprehensive wellness plan when your treatment with us is complete. Many of our clients have been given various diagnoses throughout their lives, some of which conflict with one another, so that they are no longer confident they even understand what they’re dealing with.
While our team will fully evaluate your mental health history, we will also dedicate a great deal of time to providing our own analyses and diagnoses. Unfortunately, many of our clients have not been successful overcoming their psychiatric issues due to a complicated and overburdened mental health system. Those shortcomings end at Bridges to Recovery. We are a luxury mental health facility in every meaning of the word, from the natural beauty of our grounds, to our intimate, home-like setting. Each of Bridges to Recovery’s treatment centers houses a maximum of just 6 clients at a time to ensure we have the essential time and resources to dedicate to you.
We have seen it happen time and again that just when one of our clients thinks they’ve got it all under control, their real progress has only just begun. And when they do stick to their original plan and stay with us for the full duration of their long-term residential treatment plan, they let us know how much they’ve grown since they initially thought they were ready.
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw

It is our promise and our goal to help you build the bridges of recovery; to help you cross over from a life where your mind is limiting you to a life where you have much greater control and understanding of your mental health issues.
Among the most important things you’ll learn at Bridges to Recovery long-term residential treatment is the ability to recognize if your mental clarity or stability start to slip. Once you have a more complete understanding of yourself and how your mind and body operate, you’ll be able to take the wheel and guide yourself back on course before things get too out of balance. This could mean setting up an appointment with your psychiatrist or psychologist to talk through what you’re experiencing. It could also mean a necessary adjustment to medications you might be taking. Life is fluid and the only constant is change, so we can’t guarantee that the detailed wellness plan you leave Bridges to Recovery with will serve you forever. But the lessons you learn about yourself while you’re here will serve you forever, and it is those lessons that will empower you to maintain control of yourself and the direction you take.
“I was taught that the way of progress was neither swift nor easy.” – Marie Curie
We understand. We understand that taking a hiatus from your everyday life is a gigantic step. We understand that there are countless things and people you will miss during your time in treatment, and that elements of your personal life and professional life will make it very difficult to press the pause button. Maybe you just entered a thrilling new relationship, reconnected with an old friend, or moved to a beautiful new home. Or perhaps, in spite of your mental health concerns, things at work are looking up, and you’re excited to see what’s next. Maybe it’s a series of small things you don’t want to walk away from – a series of the small things that make up the big picture of our lives. We understand that there will always be at least one or two reasons not to choose a long-term residential treatment center. But if you’re reading this, chances are good that you understand there is one hugely important reason that you should. Because you’re worth it.
