Structure, Supervision, and Support
The structure provided within residential treatment is very beneficial to clients and provides much needed stability. The residential environment also offers 24/7 supervision and support, ensuring that all of the client’s individual needs are met.
Our knowledgeable and compassionate staff encourages and motivates our residents on a daily basis. Most of our residents develop a strong bond of trust with our staff and feel more at ease knowing they have constant individualized support.
Another benefit of the BTG residential environment is that clients are able to learn to live as part of a sober community. Addiction is often a disease of isolation, so having community support is essential to the healing process. Within the residential setting, there is always someone there to help you – either staff or sober peers.
Freedom from Daily Stressors
The BTG residential setting also offers opportunities to develop and practice living and coping skills within a safe and supportive environment. Many people find the break from every day stressors a major bonus of engaging in residential treatment. Freed from the obligations of work, school, and other stressors, an individual in residential treatment can focus completely on healing their mind, body, and spirit.
Support in Transition to Independent Living
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.
Phases of Treatment
BTG’s residential program is a phase based treatment program consisting of three core phases and an extended fourth phase. Each phase is open-ended with respect to duration. As the client progresses through each phase, they are given increasing amounts of autonomy, which supports their transition back to life outside of treatment.
By providing a gradual transition from the treatment setting, we support the client in forming a solid foundation in his or her recovery, which ensures maximum opportunity for sustained quality sobriety. Click the links below to learn more about each of our phases of treatment.
