Bridge program

The Salvation Army is a Christian organisation with a concern to provide for the total well-being of the individual.

"The Bridge" is a distinctive programme for the treatment of persons with alcohol, drug and/or other dependencies, and believes in a holistic approach to recovery.

A combination of individual, group and/or family counselling, spiritual awareness, life skills training and staff role modelling are used to encourage the client to make significant life changing decisions.

A Harm Minimisation approach is used by the Programme, while recognising that for some clients the programme is directed towards total abstinence.

The Salvation Army operates a number of services in other regions. These include

  • The Bridge Program, The Basin (Residential)
  • Bridgehaven (Women specific Residential)
  • Geelong (Withdrawal Unit)
