COVID-19 Status Update
Recovery Starts Here
For over two decades, our admissions team has operated in the healthcare and treatment arenas. We understand the importance of finding and accessing the best quality care for you or your loved one. We know that, without expert help, finding the right treatment can cause anxiety and confusion.
At BTG, we strive to make the admissions process easy to understand and stress-free. We’re available 24/7 to answer your questions, address your concerns, and provide solutions to common insurance and financial issues.
All calls are confidential and are with one admissions director from the start. Regular communication with one person here at BTG ensures the admissions process is comfortable and catered to your individual needs throughout the entire process.
You Are Not Alone
Millions of Americans abuse or are dependent on alcohol or drugs. It is an illness that can affect anyone regardless of gender, financial status, employment, age, race, or ethnicity. No one knows for sure what the cause is, but there is a solution!
People with alcohol and drug dependence problems can and do recover
With over 15 years of experience, we provide substance abuse treatment for adults who want to achieve health and happiness in a life free from drug and/or alcohol dependence. For more information about the Bridging The Gaps treatment center, check out our About page.
How does the admission process work?
Different people require different levels of care. Our primary aim is to help to match you with care that will put you or your loved one on the road to long-term recovery. We begin with a pre-admissions evaluation that typically includes questions about:
- substance use, mental health, and medical history
- personal background, family structure and/or issues
- legal history
- physicians and/or therapists
- insurance information
Based on this information, our admissions director and clinical teams help to determine the most appropriate program. We discuss costs and begin to work with your insurance provider if applicable.
Is Detox Necessary?
It must be determined if medical supervision to stop alcohol or drug use safely is necessary. This process (if needed) will take place before admission to BTG and can last anywhere between several days to a week or more. Usually people who are taking large amounts of opiods (heroin, Oxycontin, or codeine), barbiturates or sedatives (downers), pain medications or alcohol need detox since they have severe withdrawal symptoms.
However, not all people need detox. People with mild withdrawal symptoms from alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, opiods, or methamphetamine can usually go right into treatment. Our admissions director can help guide you through this process. It is important to point out that detox is not treatment, it is the first step that can prepare a person for treatment.
What about finances?
We believe that when treatment is needed, it should be accessible and as affordable as possible. Your financial options depend on your insurance coverage. We accept most insurance plans: Aetna, United Healthcare, Cigna, Anthem BlueCross and Blue Shield, Blue Cross Federal, Carefirst, Tricare and more. If you do not have insurance coverage, please give us a call to discuss the cost of the program and options for self-pay.
We advocate for you to secure the most advantageous insurance rates to help you take advantage of our high-quality programs. We have excellent working relationships with most major insurers and historically secure high insurance reimbursement rates for the cost of treatment, no matter what course of treatment might be the best fit.
A Caring and Expert Hand to Guide You
Once we have found an arrangement to meet your needs, we help you prepare for your stay with us. We navigate the process to find solutions and eliminate barriers, providing regular communications every step of the way to make things easy.
At BTG, our Admissions Director is available to take your call 24/7. Whether you are calling for yourself, for a loved one, or just to ask a question, please do not hesitate to call us, as we look forward to hearing from you.
Our Admissions Director will be with you every step of the way, ensuring continuity and understanding of your unique situation. Your call will be kept in strict confidence, and you will be treated with compassion and respect.
"The past two months of intensive therapy and recovery education have completely changed me and made me into someone I am happy to wake up being." - Sam
"Everything was really well thought out with this program and ran smoothly. I do appreciate all of the different aspects of the program, including the education classes, nutrition education, DBT, neurofeedback, etc. The counselors all seem extremely invested in our success and our recovery, which I appreciate. I think the staff has been extremely wonderful." Amanda
"Great facility with a small client to employee ratio. I feel that most people who work here really care about us." - Andrew
"I am going on 2 years sober when I never thought it could happen…I have to give a 10.” - Nick
“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
"This is such a good program they work on everything so we can better understand ourselves, work through trauma and conflict, and improve our coping skills and emotionally regulate. Thank you, guys, so much!" - Grace
"If I were to come across a friend or loved one in need of treatment for addiction, I would absolutely recommend they come here. BTG is more than just addiction treatment; I have discovered more about myself here than I thought possible, and that has been invaluable to my recovery." - Sam
“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
