    "I had a vision that the treatment process and recovery could be fun and enjoyable and lead to a lifetime of happiness. My vision included treatment programs where clients and staff would respect each other. This comes from the understanding that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. We are all equal in God's world regardless of whether we've been clean for a day or a lifetime."

Promise House is a long-term residential treatment center for women struggling with a substance use disorder. The downtown Sacramento, Calif. rehab center is among the 15 percent of treatment facilities in California licensed by the state to provide residential detox services. Promise House is operated by Bridges Professional Treatment Services, which also provides residential treatment for men, outpatient programming, and DUI education.


Admission to Promise House in Sacramento begins with an initial assessment by phone call. Women enrolled in opioid medication-assisted treatment programs may be accepted, and both screenings and medication management are provided for dually diagnosed psychiatric conditions. Clients can expect to participate in residential treatment for a minimum of 30 days and up to four months.

The facility strives to meet a set of national standards known as culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS), and treatment is tailored to each client, according to the Bridges Professional Treatment Services website.

Evidence-based therapeutic methods, a disease model approach, and 12-step concepts provide a common foundation for programming. According to a federal directory of facilities, Promise House practices cognitive behavioral therapy and trauma-related counseling through individual and group sessions.

Programming also provides substance abuse education, life skills and anger management training, and parenting education. Residents participate in random drug screenings and are encouraged to work or attend school while in the later stages of treatment.
