Rehabs.com Editorial Review
Located in the center of Oregon’s Willamette Valley in the community of Salem, Bridgeway provides residential treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse, co-occurring conditions, or gambling addiction. Bridgeway also offers specialized, outpatient-based program tracks for adolescents, problem gambling, co-occurring disorders, and DUI offenders. Medically monitored detoxification is also available on-site, and all programs are available in Spanish.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To determine an appropriate level of care, clients may participate in an initial behavioral health assessment. Clients who require a structured schedule to acquire sobriety may be referred to the residential program. Typically lasting between 45 to 60 days, the residential program involves a highly-structured, 35-hour weekly schedule of active therapy. If detoxification is necessary, the process typically lasts between five and seven days.
During residential care, clients follow a customized treatment program that incorporates individual, group and family therapy, 12-step meetings, self-developmental education, and recreational activities. To educate loved ones on the process of recovery, family involvement is encouraged throughout treatment. Bridgeway also integrates holistic approaches to support a sober lifestyle.The approaches may include yoga, guided meditation, gardening, and artistic expression. Ongoing medication management is available to individuals struggling with co-occurring mental health difficulties.
Residential treatment for problem gambling is similar to chemical dependency, though all counselors are certified by the State of Oregon to treat gambling addiction. In addition to therapy and off-site support meetings, the program also includes financial planning assistance and gambling education.
All of Bridgeway’s outpatient programming is tailored to the individual participant’s needs. Most clients receive five hours of active treatment each week and remain in the program for up to 90 days. Once a client completes the program, Bridgeway actively connects them with community resources to help support continued recovery.
Bridgeway’s multidisciplinary staff includes an on-site medical director, program supervisors, certified drug and alcohol addiction counselors, and certified problem gambling counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Bridgeway offers two residences: Santiam House to treat program gambling and a main residence to treat chemical dependency. Images sourced from the facility’s website showed home-like residences with private or shared bedrooms, well-furnished communal areas, a full kitchen, and private bathrooms. Meals are prepared on-site by an executive chef and include fresh produce harvested from the residential garden. Regular visitation is allowed, and Bridgeway hosts a Sunday brunch for residents and visitors each week.
