The Bridges Teen Recovery Center program focuses on the adolescent years that can be an exciting time of growth and development as well as a challenge physically, emotionally and socially. Fortunately, most middle school and high school students get through it unscathed. For others, impulse issues, poor judgment, risk taking behavior, struggling school performance and family problems lead them into trouble with alcohol or drugs.
Our program provides an assortment of recovery tools for teens and their families. Teens learn ways to make internal changes, relationship changes and positive health choices to replace the alcohol and drug use.
