Governor Chris Sununu joined the team at Bridge Street Recovery for a ribbon cutting celebration at the new drug and alcohol treatment facility in Bennington Tuesday. Bridge Street Recovery is a comprehensive adult substance use and mental health treatment facility that opened in August.

The mission of Bridge Street Recovery is to provide innovative and individualized substance use and mental health treatment that enables all clients to achieve and maintain long-term recovery.

The Bridge Street Recovery team has decades of experience and are extremely knowledgeable about the recovery process. They understand the complex relationship between substance abuse and mental health. All the layers of addiction are recognized and treated to increase the chances of sustained sobriety and to help clients understand addiction.

Bridge Street Recovery provides clients and families struggling with substance use disorder and mental health challenges with a continuum of care that includes a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Additionally, on-site there are recovery residences for participants of the PHP as well as transitional living. Transitional living is for New Hampshire residents who have completed programing but feel they need more time to adjust to living and working in sobriety with some supports still in place.

Bridge Street is ideal for clients following detox or who are medically stable but need to commit time to solidify recovery. The suggested length of the program is at least two weeks, but all treatment is individualized based on each client’s needs.

The comprehensive step-down model Bridge Street Recovery uses is made possible through an innovative public/private partnership and is designed to ensure that clients are supported at each step of the recovery process and given every chance to succeed. This project was made possible by the support from the state of New Hampshire, the residents and employees of the Town of Bennington as well as a strong financial partnership with New Hampshire Housing Finance, Blue Hub Capital and Eastern Bank.
