ABOUT BRIDGEWAY REHABILITATION SERVICES – PACT
The Bridgeway Rehabilitation Services Program for Assertive Community Treatment program (PACT) is offered in nine different locations in throughout New Jersey, including Washington Township in Warren County. The facility provides mobile psychiatric rehabilitation services to individuals with serious mental illness.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
In order to qualify for PACT, clients must be diagnosed with schizophrenia, major depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, delusional disorder, or schizoaffective disorder. They must also be able to demonstrate that a recent hospitalization or residential mental health services have proven ineffective. Services are available 24/7 and are provided either at the client’s home or in a community setting.
The goal of treatment is to enable self-management of mental illness and prevent unnecessary psychiatric hospitalizations.
PACT’s treatment approach is family-oriented and focused on helping clients learn the skills they need to function healthily within the community.
Services include crisis response and intervention, medication management, career counseling, MICA (Mentally Ill Chemical Abuse) treatment, and assistance with daily life tasks such as cooking, cleaning, hygiene, and budgeting. PACT services can be lifelong, if necessary.
There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff, however the one alum polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave PACT five out of five stars for its staff’s level of training and experience.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
To date, Best-rehabs.com has received one review from an alum of Washington Township’s Bridgeway PACT. The reviewer gave the facility five out of five stars across most evaluated metrics, including treatment effectiveness, holistic offerings, family participation, counseling options, treatment of co-occurring disorders, and administrative and discharge procedures. The respondent indicated that the treatment was effective and described it as “very easy and friendly.” The one weakness they noted was that there were not many choices and that “everything is pre set and not patient oriented.”
According to Bridgeway’s PACT brochure, the facility accepts N.J. Medicaid, and no one is denied service due to an inability to pay. The one alum surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the facility five out of five stars for its affordability.
