Bridges Counseling Connections was founded in 2008 in Anchorage, Alaska. The organization offers outpatient substance abuse treatment to adults in both the Anchorage and Wasila areas.

Treatment and Staff

The intake process begins with an initial phone call followed by a meeting with a counselor to help determine the individual’s potential level of care. After which, potential clients undergo an in-person assessment of substance abuse history and a determine whether he or she might need residential treatment or detox prior to beginning an outpatient program.

Treatment consists of group and individual counseling using a variety of evidenced-based techniques, such as CBT, and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as relapse prevention, education and sharing. Groups usually have 10 to 12 clients and are led by a counselor.  There is also a trauma group, empowerment and healthy self-image group for teen girls, health lifestyles group for adults with diabetes and a 10-week women’s support group. Individual sessions are scheduled as needed. The exact length and intensity of the program is based on the counselor’s assessment of the client’s need.

While Bridges is not 12-step based, counselors highly recommend that clients attend outside AA and NA meetings and find a sponsor.

The organization offers dual diagnosis support by way of individual sessions with a mental health counselor and medication management by a doctor, if necessary.

Bridges’ substance abuse counselors consist of LPCs and LCSWs.

Extras

Upon client request, Bridges can facilitate individual sessions with the client, counselor and family members.

In Summary

Bridges Counseling Connections is an affordable outpatient option in Alaska’s largest metropolis. Adults struggling with substance can expect a solid evidence-based form of treatment that allows them to maintain their professional and personal obligations while setting a foundation for recovery.
