Helios, the Greek God of the sun, reminds us to keep our heads lifted toward light and recovery. The Helios Residential Program is a wonderful option for those individuals who are seeking a short-term residential model. The Helios staff is made up of dedicated professionals who work together as a team to treat each client as individuals with unique hopes, dreams, and needs.
New Bridge Foundation’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is offered to individuals who need education, counseling, and support, but can remain abstinent while living at home and working or attending school. The Intensive Outpatient Program meets for three hours, four evenings per week. The program is engaging, supportive, and highly educational. It allows time for individuals to continue work, school, or family responsibilities while receiving the support and treatment they need to recover.
Taking the best ideas from over 50 years of treating substance abuse, the START program is an excellent option for individuals with chronic drug and alcohol problems who need extended treatment. The START long-term treatment program uses a holistic approach in which traditional and alternative treatment methods are used. The START program provides the necessary time one needs to recover.
In addition to the programs listed above, New Bridge Foundation offers specialized services for individuals that are co-occurring (dual-diagnosis), Veterans, LGBTQ+, and hearing impaired. We also offer free aftercare for life for all individuals who successfully complete treatment to ensure continued sobriety.
“I feel like I owe so much to New Bridge. I feel like I owe years of sobriety for my children to New Bridge, I owe years of sanity for myself to the parent group at New Bridge, I feel like I have a support system that, if things ever do go back downhill, New Bridge would be the first phone call I would make.”
