Bridges approach

Bridges uses a harm minimization approach. This means first and foremost; our goal is to assist our client in reducing the harmful effects of drugs and/or alcohol.

This may be where substances are used in excess, or places a person at risk (health, relationships, employment, and the law).

Our clinical team assists people with their underlying mental health issues through trauma-informed counselling and referral for more intense psychological services.

Bridges is culturally sensitive and has Indigenous cultural support workers available to clients.

Bridges “no wrong door” policy means will assist you with both your mental health AND alcohol and/or drug issues.
