Bridgeway Treatment Services

Bridgeway Treatment Services was founded in 2002 by Denise Hipp, the former owner of Bridgeway, who felt that she could offer an alternative to the currently available recovery centers for drug and alcohol abuse. Although she is no longer with Bridgeway, her Buddhist traditions and ideas will carry on. Bridgeway is a distinctive facility that offers programs focused on self image, exploration of emotions and interpersonal communication skills; issues that are not necessarily covered in the average treatment center for drugs and alcohol.

Bridgeway offers unique approaches to areas of recovery and therapy from  drugs and alcohol abuse such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Training as well as various Meditation Techniques.

We also offer a full range of drug and alcohol treatment services:

  • Drug and Alcohol Assessments
  • Two Year Deferred Prosecution
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) Phase I
  • Relapse Prevention (OP) Phase II
  • Continuing Care Phase III
  • One day Alcohol and Drug Information School (2nd Saturday of month)
  • Individual and Family Counseling Sessions
  • As well as other designed programs to fit individual client needs
