Substance Abuse Treatment Customized to You

Bridging the Gaps offers a wide range of programs to meet your unique needs.


Our residential program provides the greatest structure and support for early recovery. Addiction is often a disease of isolation, so having community support is essential to the healing process. Many people find the break from every day stressors a major bonus of engaging in residential treatment.

Partial Hospitalization

Our Partial Hospitalization (PHP) program (commonly referred to as day treatment) offers a rigorous option for individuals whose needs and circumstances make them candidates for a non-residential program. At this level clients receive a full curriculum without the residential support.

Intensive Outpatient

Our Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program provides half-day treatment for those who need less structure or those who are further along their journey. IOP allows individuals to receive proven effective treatment modalities and personalized support in their own community with minimal disruption to everyday life.


Our continuing care (outpatient) program provides treatment for those that have engaged in the continuum of care at Bridging the Gaps or another treatment facility. The program provides accountability, support, and structure for maintaining long-term sobriety.

Our Admissions Director can help you decide which level of care is right for you or your loved one. Bridging the Gaps believes that it takes more than 30 days to establish lasting recovery. When the client is assessed as ready, Bridging the Gaps provides support in transitioning slowly to more independent living to ease any difficulties the client may encounter. Each client is guided on an individualized taper from the structure of the residential treatment setting to promote maintained abstinence and relapse prevention. Learn more about our levels of care.

A Comprehensive Therapeutic Approach

Bridging the Gaps offers multiple, integrated therapeutic modalities to support healing the whole person – mind, body, and spirit.

At Bridging the Gaps, we pride ourselves on our clinical program and state-of-the-art care we provide to each of our clients. Our trained clinicians offer person-centered treatment to meet each client where they are and help them reach their goals. We use evidence-based practices to support your recovery.

Ever Say to Yourself, “I’ll Get Sober on Monday?”

It’s easy to say that you are ready to change, and so tempting to make your quit date tomorrow. Even better is to push your quit date until after the weekend – after the bender. You tell yourself you will use this one last time. And since it’s going to be the last time, then you should really get the most out of it. You promise yourself that this is it – the last time.

Advocating for Clients to Receive Substance Abuse Treatment instead of Jail Time

Overdose is the ultimate price that an addict may pay, but it is certainly not the only consequence of substance abuse. The staggering rates of overdose indicate a growing population of individuals who will potentially incur legal charges as a result of their addiction. Common charges related directly to drug or alcohol use include DUIs or drunk in public charges. It is important to remember that addiction affects entire family systems. Often the legal concerns that an addict will face is in relation to those family systems; such as divorce litigation or child custody battles.
