From those small beginnings, The Bridge has grown to become a leader in adolescent substance use treatment. In the mid-1990s The Bridge began working with the Alabama Department of Youth Services and expanding services to include behavioral rehabilitation. In addition, the organization began opening community-based outpatient programs to increase the number of teens and families receiving substance abuse treatment services.
Bridge treatment programs are licensed by the Alabama Department of Youth Services or the Alabama Department of Mental Health – Division of Substance Abuse Services.
We extend our thanks and gratitude to the countless board members, staff members and volunteers who have helped to grow and shape our organization.
