Located in Thompson Falls, Montana, Building Bridges serves young men, ages 14-18, who are struggling with substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders. We utilize evidence-based therapeutic interventions in dealing with trauma, unwanted behaviors, substance misuse, and other diagnoses while providing a normative environment to begin practicing learned therapeutic tools. With the understanding that each student presents their own unique combination of challenges and history, we use an individualized, multidisciplinary approach to tailor a plan unique to each student. Our therapeutic framework focuses on areas of personal growth through individual, family, and group therapy. This highly individualized approach creates an environment that encourages and rewards the realization and continuation of personal milestones in the therapeutic process. Academics is a key component in our program. We provide multiple layers of academic support and encourage both academic and social growth by challenging current, preconceived notions students may have about their academic capabilities. Academic experiences can include a school utilizing an online accredited platform to full-time enrollment in a peer supported, public school environment with the opportunity to be involved academically, socially and athletically. Building Bridges normalizes the treatment and therapeutic experience by bringing reality to treatment – creating an ideal last stop for therapeutic placement and providing opportunities for success in both a traditional and non-traditional environment.
