Class of Housing/Services: Transitional housing for women.
This is not a free transitional housing program. Call for rates.
The Bridge House serves as a supportive community living environment for women in recovery ages 18 and above. The residence is located in a quiet residential neighborhood conveniently close to several grocery stores, pharmacies, both hospitals and urgent care facilities for medical needs, Crabtree Valley Mall and multiple retail stores and restaurants. Both private and shared rooms are available. The Bridge House encourages and supports independent living. It is not a treatment facility, a halfway house or a substitute for mental health treatment. The Bridge House was developed as an alternative housing option during transition to a lower level of care and presents an opportunity for residents to practice autonomy and effective interpersonal and coping skills while focusing on recovery in a safe environment supported by a community of their peers. Residency is voluntary and length of stay will vary according to each resident’s need. Residents must be mature and mentally stable enough to live independently in a household setting with a need for only periodic supervision. Residents are required to be enrolled in a local treatment program during the day or maintain an outpatient treatment team to support their recovery. Refusal to participate in treatment or abide by community standards and rules will prompt reconsideration of appropriateness for stay at The Bridge House. Every effort to maintain a collaborative relationship with the resident’s treatment team will be made to enhance chances of recovery. Community resources for mental health treatment, medical care, support groups, and other services for individualized needs are available.
