The Bridge Foundation’s goal is enhancing the quantity and quality of support available to young people seeking and experiencing long-term recovery from addiction and other life challenges. We envision a day when public and private systems and Programs have been implemented at the local, state, and federal levels to help individuals and families get the help they need to recover, including access to effective care including treatment and peer and other recovery support services. The Individual, Societal and Financial Consequences of Adolescent and Young Adult Alcohol or Drug Use and Substance Use Disorders is staggering. The Bridge Foundation facilitates community organizational collaboration and supports Programming for Advancing Quality Interventions for Adolescents and Young Adults Who Use, Abuse or are Dependent upon Alcohol and Other Drugs.
The Bridge Foundation’s Strategic Plan for improving Long Term Recovery Support for Adolescents, Young Adults and Families along the entire Recovery-Oriented System of Care continuum will follow Research-Based recommendations contained in a Report commissioned by The Bridge Foundation and prepared by Treatment Research Institute, entitled: Advancing Quality Interventions for Adolescents Who Use, Abuse or are Dependent upon Alcohol and Other Drugs Narrowing the Pipeline to Adult Substance Abuse Treatment Services ((c)2013). The Report Findings will be made public in 2013-2014. The Bridge Foundation will be supporting Research-Based Community Programming as recommended in the Report prepared for The Bridge Foundation by TRI.
