"Words cannot express my gratitude for the excellent care I received from you. I was nothing more than a puddle on the floor when I first arrived. You gave me back my will to live. Since then I've continued to learn and grow, but I thank God for you and the Bridge EVERY DAY. I don't know where I'd be without your kindness, warmth, patience, and love. Thank you, thank you, thank you for guiding me out of the darkness when I couldn't see what was right in front of me."

"Second to my surrender to recovery in AA almost 25 years ago - attending the Bridge for 30 days was the most significant life improvement I have ever experienced. I treasure the time I spent there - and I take a piece of each and every therapist there with me in my life - I still envision and reap the benefits of the work I did on Boundaries with the horses - the meditation instruction - the entire experience changed my life. Thanks for all you did for me and so many others!

"I want to thank all of you for the beautiful work that you do each and every day. I tell people often that The Bridge saved my life. Thank you for saving me ... and helping me save myself. I'm worth it!"

"All I can say is that I've never met more caring, understanding and real human beings. The bridge experience was a life changer for me. The knowledge and tools the counselors taught me prepared me for the next chapter in my life. I'm forever grateful. I learned what healthy intimacy was."

"There's so much I carry with me from the Bridge that I am not even aware of. I went to a reunion recently and bonded with someone over things like the body scan, having healthy boundaries, and most importantly for me, the "when you, I feel blank." The amazing thing to me is that when I was at the bridge I was in a fashion career path I didnt really want and not sure what I was doing and in a very addictive and unhealthy relationship. Now, almost five years later. I work for my family, I study acting, I practice astrology, I made a music video, I go to meetings at SLAA and DA and my relationships with men have gotten way more healthy. I also hold service positions in my two programs and have sponsees. The Bridge provided the foundation for all of that."
