Bridgeway Recovery is located in a residential neighborhood of Salem, Oregon. Offering inpatient treatment for substance abuse and gambling addictions, Bridgeway is Oregon’s first addiction clinic to become a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home, which means it can coordinate directly with each client’s primary care physician or provide comprehensive medical care on-site.
Accommodations and Food
Bridgeway houses a maximum of eight women and eight men in its residential facility. Residents sleep two to a room in basic bedrooms with necessary bedding and modest furnishing. The medical detox unit accommodates up to 15 clients in a hospital dorm-style setting, with privacy afforded by raising curtains around each bed. Residents can take walks outdoors for personal quiet time. Meals are provided in the cafeteria, with nutritionally balanced, home-style cooking.
Treatment and Staff
Medical detox is provided on-site under 24-hour supervision for up to seven days. Upon completion, clients are moved into the inpatient program, which varies in length but extends up to 90 days. Residents with co-occurring disorders are assessed by a doctor before being offered dual diagnosis support and medication management services.
Clients are required to exercise each morning using cardio equipment in the on-site gym. Participation in twice daily 30-minute meditation sessions is also encouraged. All told, residents attend 35 hours of therapy per week, which includes evidence-based individual and group therapy. These sessions teach clients to self-manage their addictions and make more positive life choices. In-house AA/NA meetings occur nightly and transport is provided to off-site life skills development classes.
The gambling addiction program lasts 45 to 60 days and also offers recovery through a residential program. Clients are provided a similar structure to the substance abuse program, with individual and group therapy focusing on gambling education and financial planning.
The outpatient and aftercare programs are for those who have either completed the inpatient program or do not require intensive treatment. The average length of these programs is six weeks. Treatment plans are developed with each client’s counselor and can include between one and five meetings a week, consisting of individual, group and family therapy.
Doctors and registered nurses supervise the detox around the clock while residents are monitored by LPNs and addiction treatment specialists. Each client is also assigned a sober mentor with whom they can discuss non-medical concerns.
Every Sunday, Bridgeway hosts a Family Day that includes a group brunch where up to five pre-approved adult guests can visit clients in two-hour increments. If a resident wishes to visit with a minor (such as their child), off-site visits can be arranged as treatment progresses at the discretion of their mentor.
Bridgeway Recovery provides clients affordable and comprehensive treatment for a range of co-occurring issues. While the facility does not offer a wide range of therapies, the sheer number of hours clients spend in sessions creates a strong basis for recovery. Individual sober mentors are also a great resource. Overall, Bridgeway Recovery is a simple and affordable recovery option.
