Before coming to Bridge to Recovery my life was total destruction.
— Brennan

Before coming to Bridge to Recovery my life was total destruction.  Since I have been here I have been able to find myself again.  For that I give a special and sincere thank you to my loving Higher Power and the awesome staff here at The Bridge.


God grant you all the serenity you have awakened in all of us.
— Randy

Through the ever present merciful Grace of God and the extraordinary altruistic and humanitarian efforts exemplified in the sanctity of The Bridge to Recovery by Dr. Lew, the counselors and the auxiliary participants, I have joined the roles of hundreds of lost men given another chance to re-join the human race as a recovering alcoholic at peace with myself, with God and the world.  God grant you all the serenity you have awakened in all of us.


When everyone else had given up on me including myself, Bridge to Recovery was there; for that I am forever grateful.
— Luke

Before I came to the Bridge to Recovery my life was unmanageable due to my addiction.  Thanks to the staff and the counselors I have not only learned about the disease of addiction, I have been given new perspective and the tools to carry that out in my everyday life. When everyone else had given up on me including myself, Bridge to Recovery was there; for that I am forever grateful.


I have learned a lot about my life, but most importantly about God.
— Lucas

Super awesome. The on site staff are not only caring, knowledgeable, and kind, but also funny, laid back, and trust worthy. The A.A. 12 step program has brought a lot of life into my life, but the spiritual renewal tops it off. I have learned a lot about my life, but most importantly about God. Very homey! Comfortable with great food! You feel right at home (:


Great place for recovery
— Chris

Great place for recovery. Not to fancy and its affordable. My stay was great with staff and onsite meetings.


I felt I belonged for the first time in my life, I was home.
— Former Resident

The first day at the Bridge was met with confusion.  I had told a doctor I did not want a religious based facility.  I had however, exactly come to one.  God’s grace led me here through some misunderstandings.  Barbara, the director, went over the rules of the house.  The same thought kept playing over and over in my mind: “Why Am I Here?”.  After my intake I went to a meeting.  It took every ounce of energy and willpower to walk through the door.  What happened next I will never be able to explain.  I just felt a presence in the room, as if someone put a hand on my shoulder and released me.  God brought Barbara and the Bridge into my life and I was saved from the path that would have destroyed or killed me.


I believe God truly sent us here.
— Marie

I can't say enough about this place. I believe God truly sent us here. This is a well rounded program and the staff is amazing.


I have hope today and am feeling so much better.
— Former Resident

I came in thinking I was gonna go through the motions and skate by and get my graduation certificate to please my family. That changed. I learned so much about myself and the disease of addiction. I have hope today and am feeling so much better. Thanks so much! I really want to live my life in recovery today! I’ve seen that I can


The Bridge to Recovery saved my life.
— Former Resident

When I got to BTR I was a broken man with no faith and very little hope.  The staff and my housemates have taught me how to live my life without being numb to drugs and alcohol.  This program showed me I can find people just like me, some more broken than others.  Today I do not have to use,  my feelings will not be hijacked anymore, and I will not be categorized as a statistic anymore.  The Bridge to Recovery saved my life.
