“When I first arrived at BTG I was incredibly nervous. I had no idea what to expect since I had never been to treatment before. I came feeling like I had no future, and had no control over my life and my addiction. I had lost relationships, friendships, the trust of my friends and family, my dignity, and all hope that I could get my life back on track. However, from the first moment I arrived, everyone I met –from the staff and the counselors to other clients– was so supportive, kind, and made me feel at ease right off the bat. At BTG I was able to confront deep-seeded issues I had been avoiding for years within a supportive, therapeutic environment. The staff at BTG were incredibly knowledgeable about the nature of addiction and chronic illnesses. They went out of their way to help me, listen to my story, and were instrumental in helping me rebuild my life. BTG gave me the tools I need to stay sober–tools that I still use today. I’ve been sober for over 3 years now, and would have never thought that my life could be as fulfilling as it is now. I have been able to rebuild my life and my relationships, and reach goals that I had thought were impossible. I owe so much of that to my time at BTG.” – LM, 28
“As a young person, BTG not only taught me how to stay sober, but how to assimilate into adulthood while keeping my number one focus on recovery. The practical tools and clinical advice they gave me has resulted in the best 4 years of my life, so far. I would recommend them to anyone who wants help beating their substance abuse issues.” – MB, 25
- “The first time I stepped foot in BTG I was sick and scared. I was tired of living life the way I had been. Through several months of treatment and with the help of both the treatment counselors and the residential staff, I was able to not only escape the grip of my addiction but to rebuild myself spiritually, mentally, and physically.” – WH, 39
“Sobriety is a lifestyle change and Bridging The Gaps showed me how to live my life in a new way. They taught me how to build a foundation, so later on I could be successful in my new and happy life. I appreciate everything they did for me and would recommend them to anyone who struggles with addiction.” – IF
“When I came to BTG my addiction had taken everything from me and I just needed help. I didn’t realize the reasons I always wanted to use were issues within me that needed to be worked on. I would have never had a clue without the direction from the counselors at BTG. Before BTG I was hopeless and thought I couldn’t change, but I followed what the counselors instructed me to do. I can say it was by far the best decision I have made in my life because I have never turned back to my old lifestyle” – MM, 27
“I had been to some of the “top” treatment centers in our country and was unable to find long-term sobriety until I went to Bridging the Gaps. I have never felt the compassion and love that BTG promotes on a daily basis. Not only was the staff competent and caring, BTG promotes an environment of recovery among the clients in treatment. For me, success was found at BTG due to the unique therapies, small intimate setting, and true kindness from staff.” – AP, 26
