The Bridge House Program – New England Aftercare Ministries
The Bridge House is a halfway house program where newly sober men practice sobriety and work toward a successful return to society. They provide aftercare, primarily to formerly incarcerated men and individuals with substance abuse or addiction issues. To enter the program, each applicant is required to have a minimum of 30 days sobriety. Attendants are also expected to find and maintain employment. Once employed, each resident must pay a treatment fee of $150 per week. The Bridge House offers weekly group counseling sessions, as well as individual counseling that helps attendants build and fulfill their own individualized treatment plan. Primary recovery efforts are provided outside as men are encouraged from Day 2 to become engaged in outside recovery activities. While not a mental health facility, they are staffed by Christian counselors with a heart for helping men in need along their path to better living.
