Introduction and Basic Services

Founded in 2002 in Southern California, Bridges to Recovery offers holistic substance abuse and mental health treatment. With locations in Holmby Hills, Pacific Palisades and San Diego, Bridges to Recovery’s three co-ed facilities provide services to men and women of all ages.

Facility and Meals

All of the locations have a maximum of six clients at a time, creating a luxurious yet the intimate setting.

The Holmby Hills facility has six large bedrooms, each with their own dressers, king-sized beds and comfortable chairs. Most of the bedrooms come equipped with their own private bathrooms. The building has a cozy living room with two plush couches and a fireplace, in addition to a media room with a large couch, flat-screen TV, fireplace and multiple bookshelves. There is also a formal dining area with a large modern glass table. Bridges to Recovery conducts the therapy in the same facility and the Holmby Hills location has multiple therapy rooms. There is also has an on-site gym with weights, treadmills, exercise machines and yoga mats. Clients also have access to a personal trainer who leads fitness classes twice a week in the gym.

The Pacific Palisades building is located Cape-Cod style house with a total of six bedrooms. The bedrooms are very similar to Holmby Hills, complete with king-sized beds, dressers, chairs and most of the bedrooms have their own individual bathrooms. The facility has two large living rooms with couches, love seats, padded windowsills and a stone fireplace. Therapy takes place in a number of both indoor and outdoor small nooks. The state-of-the-art kitchen comes equipped with a large dining table, marble countertops and full amenities. Just like the Holmby Hills location, the building has an on-site gym and personal trainer twice a week.

The San Diego house is located on a two-acre estate surrounded by a lush garden and big trees. The house has a large living room with expansive brown leather couches circling a large TV, a modern fully equipped kitchen and a mixture of single and double bedrooms like the Holmby Hills and Pacific Palisades locations.

All facilities have in-house chefs that prepare three healthy and holistic meals a day. The chefs aim to accommodate all dietary needs and restrictions that clients may have.

Clients are allowed to bring in outside electronics and welcomed to bring their pets to the treatment facilities if they wish. 

Treatment Protocol and Team

The intake process beings with an in-person or phone assessment that covers the client’s current substance abuse issues, medical history and personal reasons for seeking treatment. Family members may also be interviewed to help Bridges fully understand the client’s background. If the client is a good fit for Bridges to Recovery, a group of counselors then helps make recommendations for the client’s treatment and they begin as soon as possible.

During their first 24 hours of treatment, clients receive an extensive evaluation from one of Bridge’s psychiatrists and shortly after are assigned a primary therapist who oversees their treatment progress. The first two to three weeks of treatment, clients are intensely observed by Bridges’ clinical team. The goal of this observation period is to help identify the client’s individual needs and to design a treatment plan that best tackles these issues.

The organization employs a mixture of both group and individual therapies to best meet the needs of the client. Counselors use a variety of therapeutic techniques including CBT, Somatic Experiencing Therapy, DBT, EDMR, Relational Therapy and individual integrative psychotherapy.

A typical day begins with group and individual therapy in the mornings, and then nutritional education, outings and physical education in the afternoons before attending 12-step meetings in the evenings.

Bridges to Recovery is dual diagnosis and offers mental health treatment for clients with potential co-occurring disorders, including medication management.

The organization operates a two-to-one staff-to-client ratio with most of the staff members having either Doctorate or Master’s degrees. The staff consists of LCSWs, LMFTs, EMDR specialists, psychologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists and masseuses.

Counselors aim to create an aftercare plan for clients prior to them leaving treatment at Bridges. The aftercare plan may include referring clients outside outpatient, aftercare and 12-step programs as well as relapse prevention and reintegration assignments.

Upon consent of the client, the organization provides family and couples therapy as well.

Bonus Amenities

Bridges to Recovery also offers meditative drumming groups, yoga sessions, massages and art therapy. One acupuncture session per week is included in the cost treatment as well


Bridges to Recovery provides luxurious and individualized residential treatment to adult men and women in the southern California area. A minimal number of residents and ample staff members provide each client with a high level of individualized attention. The variety of holistic and creative therapy techniques is an added benefit. Also, the extensive aftercare planning offers a great deal of structured support for beginning recovery outside of formalized treatment.
