Accommodations and Food
Bridges of Hope is a former retirement center in an upscale neighborhood. The facility is well appointed and looks more like a boutique hotel than a hospital.

There are comfortable lounges, meeting rooms, medical exam rooms and an on-site fitness center with a weight room, cardio machines and a full-sized gymnasium.

Healthy meals are prepared on-site and served in the large dining room. Most special dietary needs can be met.
Treatment and Staff
After a thorough assessment is performed by an intake counselor, an individualized plan is formulated that may include dual diagnosis support and medication management by an on-site psychiatrist. Bridges offers an inpatient detox treatment that lasts three to five days in a supported medical environment. After detox is completed, clients can transition seamlessly to the 30-day residential program or one of Bridges’ outpatient programs for continued treatment.
Bridges uses evidence-based therapy methods, like CBT and DBT, during group and individual therapy. As previously mentioned, the facility serves individuals in need of substance abuse treatment who also have co-occurring conditions. Typically, clients participate in about 30 hours per week of therapy in the residential program and other recovery-related activities daily. Bridges is a 12-step based program and thus facilitates AA and NA meetings on-site. Clients are required to attend and peer counselors occasionally lead the meetings. Psychoeducation is a major part of treatment practices at Bridges, with classes like relapse prevention, coping skills and parenting skills being offered to clients regularly.
Bridges offers extensive educational programs about the disease of addiction to surrounding communities, as well as information and resources about family support programs like Alanon.
Bridges of Hope offers solid 12-step oriented treatment for those in the Indianapolis area. The programs are focused on meeting each client’s needs to help them build a solid foundation in recovery. This is a great option for affordable addiction treatment.
