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 many services under this programme, including:
