Community Bridges Inc. was established in 1982 as a comprehensive behavioral health facility. For over 30 years, it has served the state of Arizona with multiple locations and 30 treatment programs. Offering detox, short-term residential, outpatient, and gender-specific and sober living programs for adults and families, this facility has become a trusted name within the communities it serves.
Accommodations and Food
The two residential programs are located in the Yuma Lighthouse and Benson Desert facilities. Length of stay varies from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, depending on the client’s needs. Yuma Lighthouse can serve up to 24 adults at a time, and Benson fits 12—most rooms are double occupancy with private bathrooms. The main goal of these facilities is to have individuals transition to outpatient as quickly and successfully as possible. Meals are prepared on site and served in dining rooms. Most special dietary needs can be met.
Treatment and Staff
CBI offers an inpatient detox treatment that lasts between three to five days in a supported medical environment. After detox is completed, a short-stay residential program or one of CBI’s Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are recommended for continued treatment. After a thorough assessment is performed by an intake counselor, an individualized plan is formulate that may include dual diagnosis support and medication managed by an on-site psychiatrist.
Whether in the residential or the IOP, CBI uses evidence-based therapy methods, like CBT and DBT, during group and individual therapy. The IOP serves individuals not only in need of substance abuse treatment, but also with co-occurring conditions. Typically, clients participate in up to seven groups per day in the residential program. IOP includes three group therapy sessions per week for three hours at a time, and one individual therapy session with a counselor per week.
Psychoeducation is a major part of treatment practices at CBI, with classes like relapse prevention, coping skills and parenting skills being offered to clients regularly. Though CBI is not a 12-step based program, the facility does hold AA and NA meetings on-site. Clients are encouraged, but not required, to attend and peer counselors occasionally lead the meetings.
CBI employs over 700 individuals including “peer support” counselors, who are former clients and now help others achieve sobriety. Additionally, staff consists of licensed professionals including psychologists, RNs, MFTs, licensed addiction counselors, LPCs and LCSWs.
CBI offers extensive educational programs about the disease of addiction to surrounding communities, as well as information and resources about family support programs like Alanon.
CBI also provides specialty programs like the Center for Hope, which is designed for pregnant and postpartum women and their children up to the age of six, offering a transitional housing unit and outpatient treatment.
A relatively new treatment program is Unscript, which focuses on prescription pain killer addiction. Currently, this program is only available at the Scottsdale location.
Community Bridges Inc. says its mission is to maintain the dignity of human life. All the treatment programs it offers reflect that philosophy. The success rate of CBI is in the 80th percentile, which is a testament to not only its services, but also the caring nature of the staff, many of whom are former clients. This is a workable program devoted to the continued success of each individual who walks through its doors.
