About Building Bridges Program

Building Bridges is a 10-week non-residential rehab program that provides a structured group program. Each participant will get an individually tailored treatment plan via case management that matches them to group modules that will assist them to address the impacts of substance use on their lives.

Family participation

We encourage that each participants family and significant others engage in the treatment journey with the participants. We offer family sessions that look at how loved ones can assist and support the participant to practice what they have gained from the program.

The group modules use a combination of evidence-based interventions that provide the foundation for recovery.

Pathway and Referrals to the program

Clients may be self-referred, referred by significant others, by other agencies or may be mandated to engage in treatment as part of community corrections order, parole or bail conditions, other diversion programs and or the Step Out Program.


Included in the program is an aftercare component that gradually reduces support while building the participants' recovery capital and connection to the community.

The Model of service delivery

The model of service delivery is underpinned by the Community Integration Model (CIM), an approach to practice which increases ‘recovery capital’ for individuals.  The model ensures individuals are supported to:

  • Develop appropriate life skills & resources – increasing an individual’s personal recovery capital
  • Develop the right support from their established or newly developed support mechanisms –increasing an individual’s social recovery capital
  • Develop the necessary support services to ensure a recovery-oriented treatment journey –increasing an individual’s community recovery capital

This combination of approaches brings together connectedness, integration and meaningfulness for the individual, which will assist to meet the goals of their treatment journey. Read More
