Treatment Insights

Founded in 2003, Turnbridge operates gender-separate programs for young men and young women who have been afflicted with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Since its inception over 13 years ago, Turnbridge has received national acclaim for its innovative treatment model that has redefined the way our industry approaches the “failure to launch” population. Turnbridge clients progress through three Phases of structure, whereby each Phase is designed to build upon the previous one. The ultimate goal for Turnbridge graduates is that they’re actively working or taking classes, engaged in therapy, participating in active social lives, attending 12-step meetings, and actively practicing independent living skills.

be very careful choosing this place. Check how many therapists have left. Check how many case managers have left. This is not a place you want to send a loved one.

The longer term Turnbridge program was completely necessary and helpful for my son. We had seen him "white knuckle" and remain drug free for 30-60 days and then binge and so we knew that a 30 day "reh...

Unethical, inexperienced higher ups that play favorites and shun you if something does not go their way

Terrible place, they lie to clients and are way more interested in making money than recovery.

I think addiction rehabilitation is an area where you get what you pay for. Turnbridge is expensive, but our son has been sober for 2-1/2 years thanks to the people who work there. Our son's case mana...
