Bridges of Hope Treatment Center Philosophy
Bridges of Hope's treatment philosophy is anchored on evidence and the premise that alcoholism and drug addiction are clinical disorders that develop a dependence on mood/mind altering substances. Substance use disorders are developed and centered in the limbic region of the brain. Contributing factors to the development of substance use disorders are hereditary, developmental, environmental, and drug use itself. Working together, these factors lead to progression of addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term "medical detoxification" means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person's unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

ABOUT BRIDGES OF HOPE
Bridges of Hope is a Joint Commission accredited facility in Anderson, Ind., about an hour northwest of Indianapolis, for adults and adolescents seeking long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. The facility offers medically monitored detox, as well as a full continuum of treatment programs, including long-term residential (gender-specific tracks are available), partial hospitalization program (PHP), and intensive outpatient program (IOP) levels of care.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
All clients begin the recovery process with an initial assessment of health status, medical history, severity of addiction, and other factors to determine an appropriate treatment plan. According to the facility’s website, medical detox is considered “necessary for every patient admitted” and is available on-site for both adults and adolescents. According to . 2016 SAMHSA survey, the facility was only one of eight non-hospital, residential facilities in the state to offer medical detoxification.
A blend of evidence-based and alternative approaches, Bridges of Hope's residential programming is designed to be flexible and holistic, integrating one-on-one and group therapy sessions with nutritional assessments, yoga, massage therapy, meditation, exercise, and equine therapy. The 12-step model of recovery is also integrating into programming. Psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management is available to individuals struggling with co-occurring mental health concerns.
Participants of the IOP spend time developing essential independent living skills and relapse prevention strategies while attending 12-step meetings and other support groups. While residential treatment is typically completed in 90 to 120 days, the durations of specialized gender-specific tracks may depend on the severity of one’s addiction. Programs for women can last from 20 days to three months, while specific tracks for men may last from six months to one year. The IOP ranges from eight to 12 weeks.
