If your a survivor of extreme trauma do NOT go to the bridge. The clinical staff is not experienced enough and the program needs to be evaluated. Harm was done!

The Bridge has the beginnings of something great. They do not have a psychiatrist on staff. The Bridge unravels you and doesn't put you back together, unless of course you are able to afford staying at least 12 weeks. I can't imagine what percent of patients are able to. Understanding of trauma conceptually.

Great
Before entering treatment I was unsure if I wanted to live or die. I spent 2 months in the Bowling Green Ky center, and my life has been forever changed. I am the happiest I have ever been. I have a sense of serenity I never even knew existed. Not only did I leave a changed person but my stay there was wonderful. The staff, counselors, the lodging, the chefs, just everything was wonderful. My only advice is to bring sweatpants because the food really is that good.

Great
had been without a drink for 20 years but had not worked steps of AA and was untreated. My husband left and I sunk into a deep depression, unable to function. The Bridge dealt with many issues on different levels and worked the AA program out of the big book .

The Bridge To Recovery does not support the healing of family relationships. I hope nobody else has to go through the experience that our family has with this treatment facility.

The Bridge To Recovery did a horrifically poor job of working with my former fiance\' - she showed up as a sex addict and obvious borderline/anti-social personality disorder patient and these rescuing, biased, clueless therapists managed to be completely conned and manipulated by her to the point that SHE was the victim. They were rude, aggressive and completely uncaring with me as a significant other. DO NOT USE THIS TREATMENT CENTER - They were out of their depth She was a good liar but this treatment center was bias from the beginning.

I had a horrifically bad experience with \'The Bridge to Recovery\'. The Clinical Director, is a capable, insightful and caring person but she wasn\'t really in touch with the work of the staff members under her. I drove my former fiance there to deal with her off the charts love and sexual addiction but she was able to con the very biased treatment staff that she wasn\'t the perpetrator, she was the poor victim. I had been traumatized by her history that she told me about in graphic detail and I was understandably hurt, sad and angry. The Bridge to Recovery very unprofessionally enabled my ex. There was zero remorse or empathy. The sexual addiction was not addressed. She picked her addiction over a man who loved her and was more then willing to do the work. I would NOT send anyone to The Bridge to Recovery. They are easily conned, unprofessional, biased and uncaring unless you are the one paying the bill directly. Truth, honor, integrity and care for the family member and the family system were eliminated in favor of protecting and enabling my fiance. Stay away from them - they are clueless.

Excellent
I went to The Bridge to Recovery several years ago and was forever changed. I came there emotionally bankrupt and very unhappy. Through there intense group therapeutic program I was able to began to heal. Today I enjoy my life and feel joyful. I am thriving instead of surviving.

The Bridge To Recovery clinicians are abrasive and use unprofessional bullying tactics with guests and their spouses. This facility does not support family relationships. If you are interested in healing your marriage do not go to this facilty. They intentionally damage and interfere in marital relationships in the name of recovery. They also seem more focused on getting people to stay longer and pay more than actually providing a caring, professional treatment program. This treatment center decision has had devastating consequences for our family.
