The Rolling Bridgeway Cafe 

Feb. 7th, 2018

We bought a food truck! It's called The Rolling Bridgeway Cafe and from it we serve gourmet sandwiches, potato salad, chips, and drinks. We're really excited about it! But what makes this truck so special is that it's more than an opportunity to eat a great meal, it's an opportunity to support your neighbors. See, the goal of The Rolling Bridgeway Cafe is to hire people in recovery from chemical dependency or mental health struggles. By giving them a job, we can give them a fresh start toward successful recovery.  

Follow our food truck on Facebook and Instagram at @rollingbridgewaycafe to stay up-to-date with our location, new menu items, and employment opportunities! These employment opportunities can also be found on our website. We hope to serve you soon!

Celebrating Bridgeway's Fifth Anniversary

July 2014

In celebration of Bridgeway's fifth anniversary, CEO Tim Murphy and the Board of Directors printed a full-color ad in the Statesman Journal to acknowledge and congratulate staff members who've provided substance abuse, mental health and problem gambling treatment services to over 6,000 Oregonians.

"Our staff provides hope, health and freedom to thousands of our friends and neighbors who struggle with mental illness and addictions every day. We believe that anyone can recover and that everyone deserves the opportunity for life filled with hope, love and happiness."

Bridgeway will also salute their dedicated staff by hosting an anniversary celebration later this month.

Bridgeway Announces Addition of In-Patient Capabilities

December 2012

As announced in this full-color ad in the Statesman Journal's Mid-Valley Health Guide, Bridgeway's intervention and support services have been extended to include residential facilities and a full-time medical care team. According to CEO Tim Murphy, adding these in-patient capabilities marks the company's maturing into a comprehensive outpatient/residential Addictions Medicine Clinic.

"Sometimes, addressing our patients' crises requires an extended stay, as well as sophisticated clinical intervention to stabilize their medical condition. With these additions to our menu of services, we can provide a continuum of treatment across a full spectrum of severity."

Murphy said the purpose of publishing the ad in the Health Guide was to inform referring physicians as well as the general public about the all-inclusive, state-licensed intervention resources Bridgeway now offers.

Health and Wellness Initiative

December 2010

With support from several community partners Bridgeway Recovery Services (BRS) has announced that they will have a tobacco free facility and treatment clinic starting January 1, 2011.

Working with Marion County Health Department and Kaiser Permanente BRS has developed a transition plan that includes education, focus groups, nicotine replacement therapy, nutrition and exercise.

Starting January 1, residential clients will not be allowed to smoke or otherwise use tobacco while in treatment. BRS staff will also not be allowed to use tobacco prior to or during their work shift.

Currently all residential clients receive a minimum of five hours of education in the health risks associated with tobacco use. In November BRS staff received a presentation on the health risks of tobacco use in their monthly All-Staff Meeting.
