A Bridge To Recovery


Alcoholism:The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.Dual Diagnosis:Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person\'s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.Mental Health and Substance Abuse:A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.Opioid Addiction:Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Levels Of Care

Intensive Outpatient:We believe alcoholism and drug addiction are progressive fatal diseases that must be treated. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) consists of both group and individual counseling. Groups are held in the evenings and meet 3 times a week for 3 hours each group for a total of 9 hours per week. The IOP includes a family component for education and treatment of codependency issues. The program is 10 weeks long. A Bridge to Recovery has an evening IOP on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. We also offer a morning IOP on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, but is currently closed. After completing the IOP we encourage clients to attend our Continuing Care Program.We understand that addiction is a disease which requires complete abstinence as a necessary part for recovery. Our program is 12 Step based and incorporates peer support, cognitive-behavioral, relapse prevention, art, experiential, and emotive therapies. A vital part of recovery and our program is 12 Step meetings and working with a sponsor.We are certified by the Mississippi Department of Mental Health.

Clinical Services

Eating Disorder Treatment:Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.Family Therapy:A treatment plan is not complete until the Family is involved and that is why A Bridge to Recovery places such a strong emphasis on this vital dynamic. Since addiction is a family disease the healing that takes place in recovery permeates the family system too. Unfortunately many family members never join the recovery process and become lost when the healing changes take place.We at A Bridge to Recovery are invested in the family program as a pivotal part of the treatment and recovery process. It is our belief that families must be given the opportunity to heal and develop the tools necessary to successfully negotiate the tenuous dynamic changes that take place during recovery. We believe that addiction is a family disease and recovery is a process of family healing.Group Therapy:Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.Individual Therapy:In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.Trauma Therapy:Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client\'s past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.
