It's easy to refer a friend or family member....

One of the most asked questions we receive from Alumni is “How do I send my family member to The Bridge?”

For nearly five decades, The Bridge continues to not only help individuals, but we continue to help the whole family unit heal.  We have had multiple generations of the same family come through our program over the decades.  With the individuals coming at different times, we have worked with couples, siblings, parents/children, guardians, adoptive family sets, co-workers, and damaged lifelong friendships just to name a few.

By sending the whole family through The Bridge, each individual gets the opportunity to address their own emotional wounds, allowing for the family unit to heal as a whole.  It is always an amazing opportunity to see individuals heal – but when you see a whole family heal – WOW!  It’s powerful.  

Referring a Friend or Family Member
Our Admissions Team gets calls every day from folks who have “heard about us” from a friend or family member – most often an Alumnus who shared their story (at a meeting, at a family gathering, etc.).  Other times, an Alumnus will call us directly, getting information.  There is no “wrong” way to refer someone to our program, and our Team is ready to help out in whatever way works best for your families situation.

“Is The Bridge a good fit for my mom?”
“What can I do if they aren’t very willing right now – how can I encourage them?”
“What if they don’t want to come in right away, but soon?”
“My marriage is in trouble, and I want my spouse to come to The Bridge!”
“I’m not sure how to talk to them about going to The Bridge!”

If you have a friend or family member in mind, give us a call – talk with Stephanie or Adam in our Admissions Department. Our Admissions Team has heard every question you might have, and no question is insignificant.  We understand how scary it can be.  We know how hard it is to make that decision.  We know that every person is unique and so is their story.  We understand what it’s like.  Give them a call, and let them help guide you with that referral.

And, maybe your family member is ready to take the next big step, and they’ve agreed to come to The Bridge.  Then what do you do?  Give us a call – or have them give us a call.  Let us know that you came through the program, and now you’d like to send your family member (or make sure they let us know).  If they are ready, we can get their over-the-phone assessment scheduled, and get the ball rolling.  We can answer their questions, and calm their fears.

Lastly, we recognize how financially difficult it can be on a family to send one person, let alone the whole family.  Because of this, we offer ANY friend or family member of an Alumni a 20% discount off of our published prices.  We’ve been a non-profit since our beginnings, so we work hard to keep our fees as low as possible anyway – but we certainly want to provide a break for friends and family of our Alumni.  We only have a certain number of spots available each admission date for this discount – so be sure to call and talk with us about availability.
