Bridgeway is a new kind of healthcare organization
providing addiction recovery, problem gambling treatment, mental health therapy, and primary medical care.

As a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH), Bridgeway provides integrated health care services to people whose lives have been impacted by the symptoms of addiction, mental illness or problem gambling.

Based on the idea that individuals should be treated holistically, we offer education, compassion, and treatment support for managing addictions, while also providing regular medical attention for the well-being of the body.

Our staff will help you recognize your symptoms and recover from your illness. With proven methodologies we hope to give you the tools you need to make better choices for better living, and to make health a habit for life.

For people just like you.

People from all walks of life will struggle from time to time. Getting help when you need it is a sign of strength—not shame. Bridgeway is a place where you’ll be treated with dignity and respect, wherever you’re coming from.

Our Hallmarks

Healthy people.
Healthy community.

We all want our city to become a better place to live. Knowing healthy people are the foundation of a strong community fuels our mission to help people improve the health of their mind, body, and relationships. That’s why we partner with the local community supports who want to help people — and their city — flourish.

Your home for primary care.

Need to find a primary care physician? We may be the best option. Bridgeway is now a certified primary care provider, which means you can choose us to be your main point of contact for all your health care needs. It’s another way for us to help you get healthier — in every way.

A community of support.

We see ourselves as part of a network of organizations and groups committed to helping you make choices that lead to a healthy lifestyle. From transportation, to job assistance, to mentoring; we’re here to open doors to all of the resources in the community that are there to help. You may not have realized it, but there are a lot of people out there ‘rooting for you’.

Groups

We have launched a comprehensive new program for online/remote counseling groups. When meeting in person isn’t an option, this is the next best thing.

Dedicated to the many in our community whose struggles are real, and whose hopes for the future are running thin. A reminder that something better is out there. That there are people who've made it through, who care. It's a story that's all too common, but maybe not in the way you'd assume.

At Bridgeway, we take a different approach to recovery—one that’s centered on respect and empowerment. With integrated, holistic care, we help clients work through addiction and mental health issues without judgment or stigma. Learn more about our mission to offer treatment that contributes to a healthier, thriving community.

There is more to mental health and addiction issues than people often think. Learn how a holistic view of healthcare allows the Bridgeway team to better empathize with, and help, their clients.

Tim Murphy and the team at Bridgeway discovered that providing a smoke-free environment actually helps clients recover from drug and alcohol addictions.

As a teenager, Ted was gifted a guitar. When nothing else in his life made sense, he could count on the instrument for a sense of identity and comfort. Today, Ted is a mentor for Bridgeway’s Corrections Program, where he helps connect people to recovery resources. The other day, he was at the Union Gospel Mission picking up some supplies when he came across an old guitar lying atop a heap of other items. To anyone else, the scuffed-up instrument with broken strings would’ve been considered junk, but Ted saw it had greater potential. He took the guitar home, polished it, and attached new strings. Gleaming like new, it was ready for a home.  Ted had an inexplicable feeling that Sonny, Bridgeway’s Adolescent Program Supervisor, would know someone who could benefit from making music with the guitar. As it just so happened, Sonny had the perfect person: a girl in Bridgeway’s adolescent program. Before COVID hit, she was seeking support from Bridgeway but was struggling to connect—until she picked up a guitar Sonny kept in his office. The instrument made her feel comfortable enough to start opening up. Then COVID hit, and, like so many of us, she felt isolated and was looking for a creative outlet. It seems as though the guitar Ted found was practically made for her.  When Ted and Sonny presented her with the instrument, her gratitude was palpable. “She was blown away,” said Ted. “If we can speak life into these kids with instruments, it will give them a sense of identity and something to hang on to.”  Sometimes, a little kindness and inspiration are all it takes for us to start singing a different tune.
We had another fun virtual All Staff meeting today led by our CEO, Tim! These meetings are our chance to catch up with our coworkers, recognize each other's hard work, and learn about what's happening within the organization.  Today Tim wanted us to know how proud he is of the ways we support those who are struggling, and how thankful he is that we've stuck by Bridgeway's side after a tough year.  "I feel collective pride in how we lean into those in our community," said Tim. "I'm proud of Bridgeway, I'm proud that we're still standing, and I respect all of you for all that you do. What we're doing is good."

Big news! Our medical clinic has achieved Tier 4 status as a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) for the second time.  A PCPCH is a health care clinic that has been recognized for their commitment to patient-centered care.  “Being recognized as a Patient-Centered Primary Care Home is an incredible achievement that lets both our staff and patients know that Bridgeway is providing high quality health care to all who enter our doors,” said Tim Murphy, CEO of Bridgeway Recovery Services.  Core attributes of a PCPCH include access to care; accountability; comprehensive services; continuity; coordination and integration; and patient and family-centered care.  “Integrated care is vital to the future of health care,” said Sarah Hadfield, a Physician’s Assistant in Bridgeway’s medical clinic. “Looking at the big picture of whole person health allows behavioral health and physical health to join forces to help our clients succeed.”  At the end of the day, however, Hadfield recognizes that providing high quality health care often extends beyond medical treatment and into the relationship between provider and patient.  “Compassionately listening [to patients] allows us to work together with them to help set goals that are specific to their wants and needs,” said Hadfield. “Attending medical appointments should be a two-way conversation, not feel like a lecture.”  Congratulations, team!
