ABOUT BRIDGEWAY BEHAVIORAL HEALTH – TROY
Bridgeway Behavioral Health is a private, nonprofit provider of addiction treatment services in operation since 1978. In Troy, one of 12 Bridgeway locations throughout eastern Missouri, the nonprofit provides both intensive outpatient (IOP) and day treatment for addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Bridgeway also runs detoxification services as well as gender-separate residential treatment programs at its nearby facilities.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Both intensive outpatient (IOP) and day treatment programming offers access to psychiatric services and medication-assisted treatment, if needed.
The day program, which meets five days a week for at least six hours a day, features weekly individual counseling and daily group therapy. These sessions focus on major recovery topics like triggers and cravings, relapse prevention, anger management, and healthy communication. The IOP consists of 10 hours of education and group therapy a week, along with individual counseling twice a week.
Both treatment options also include 12-step meetings, like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and an introduction to meditation and journaling. There are also special fellowship groups and opportunities for usage of the on-site fitness center and group hikes.
Aftercare services are provided indefinitely and are individualized to meet each client’s needs.
Clients work with counselors and technicians and have access to a full-time registered nurse (RN) who can provide medical assessments and referrals.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
A former client surveyed by Best-rehabs.com shared a nuanced perspective on their recovery experience. While they gave the Troy office four stars for treatment effectiveness, they gave only one star when indicating how strongly they’d recommend treatment to others, voicing concerns of disorganization and overcrowding. “They are experienced but a lot of unorganized activities. Too many clients,” they wrote. They also gave just two and three stars, respectively, for the treatment for co-occurring disorders and the counseling options available.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Feedback provided by a loved one was also mixed. In their anonymous Best-rehabs.com survey response, the reviewer claimed that, while staff were “Understanding” and “welcoming,” treatment itself was “not very effective.”
They gave just two stars for treatment effectiveness, holistic offerings, and cost worthiness, but a higher rating of four stars for family programming.
There is currently no information provided on the facility’s website or otherwise regarding its costs. Though Bridgeway receives donations through its BBH Foundation, it is unclear if those funds offset costs for clients.
