Rehabs 360 Guide


Founded in 2002 and serving clients from all over the world, Bridges to Recovery (BTR) is a Southern California mental health and drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation program with one small, luxurious residential location in the Holmby Hills neighborhood between Bel Air and Beverly Hills, and another in Pacific Palisades. BTR offers treatment for adults who have received a dual diagnosis of impulse control disorders such as substance use or gambling and co-occurring mental health disorders. Eating disorder treatment is also offered. The Bridges to Recovery approach integrates psychiatric and holistic therapeutic treatments and the facility takes pride in a highly trained and compassionate staff.


Upon arrival, each client undergoes an extensive assessment process conducted by a team of clinicians, which is used along with a psychiatrist’s evaluation and information from family and existing treatment providers to personalize treatment plans. Medication-assisted therapy is administered when appropriate. During the first two to three weeks in residence, ongoing observation and assessment are prioritized and adjustments made as needed.

Most clients participate in residential rehabilitation for 30 to 60 days, while some enroll in a more comprehensive 90-day program that incorporates intensive family therapy, trauma recovery, and aftercare planning. Each treatment plan includes five individual psychotherapy sessions a week, two to three group meetings a day, and a combination of modalities such as dialectical behavior and cognitive behavioral therapies, relational therapy, somatic experiencing, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing.

Traditional treatment is complemented by clients’ participation in experiential therapies including meditative drumming, art therapy, yoga, and nutritional rehab. Clients may choose to attend off-site 12-step groups and families are invited to participate in counseling on-site.

Clients from diverse backgrounds and lifestyles may expect what the facility’s website describes as culturally appropriate care.


According to the facility’s website, clients meet with doctoral level therapists each day, and the center maintains a staff-to-client ratio of 2:1.


Holmby Hills is the second six-bed facility operated by Bridges to Recovery. The spacious facility is located on secluded grounds with a courtyard, gardens, a swimming pool, and a full gym. Meals are personalized and prepared by private chefs. Residents may choose between private and shared bedrooms. In addition, clients are invited to bring their pets to rehab for the duration of treatment.

Group activities are frequent and may include hiking in the local hills and movie screenings. In addition, one weekly session each of massage and acupuncture are included with each client’s stay.


Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff, and feedback referencing the Holmby Hills facility specifically on third-party review sites is scarce. A single Google review left by a former client was available at the time of this writing. They reportedly experienced unethical practices and rated the facility just one star out of a potential five.[1]

In contrast, four staff members provided very positive reviews of the Holmby Hills location. In a representative review on Yelp, one wrote: “As a therapist as Bridges to Recovery, I am proud to be a member of such a skilled and dedicated clinical team.”[2][3]


Bridges to Recovery is a private-pay facility. The facility is not covered in-network by any insurance company; however the facility’s staff will assist clients with obtaining reimbursement for out-of-network benefits by referring to a third party advocate. A deposit is required to hold a residential spot after a date for arrival is determined.
