When clients are considering our program, one of the first questions we often get asked about is our food and dietary options.
What you can expect during your stay:
Our kitchen and staff are equipped to handle a wide array of special dietary requests. During our admissions process, our team will discuss with potential clients their preferences, needs, and restrictions.
We have worked with many dietary needs & restrictions, including:
At The Bridge, clients sometimes enter our program with an unhealthy relationship with food and body image due to their underlying and unresolved historical trauma.
This can include:
Food and body wellness is often a struggle for many of our clients, as it is most certainly a “symptom” of underlying & unresolved trauma. Our care team and our kitchen team work closely together to assist clients education and balance where and when appropriate.
However, if a potential client is active in acute disordered eating behaviors (such as Anorexia & Bulimia), it is likely that they will receive a recommendation to attend a primary Eating Disorder Treatment Program prior to attending The Bridge to Recovery. Our program focuses on trauma as the acute concern, and not the eating behaviors. Getting the eating behaviors stabilized prior to attending our program then allows the client to focus on the underlying historical causes of all their maladaptive behaviors.

“ Honestly the Bridge taught me something I already knew but had to remember. I am so damn special, valid, and important. Everyone in my life saw it, but me. The Bridge just showed me how to look in the mirror to see for myself. ”
