Bridges of Hope Treatment Center
2200 North Madison Avenue, Anderson, Indiana, 46011
Bridges of Hope's treatment philosophy is anchored on evidence and the premise that alcoholism and drug addiction are clinical disorders that develop a dependence on mood/mind altering substances. Substance use disorders are developed and centered in the limbic region of the brain. Contributing factors to the development of substance use disorders are hereditary, developmental, environmental, and drug use itself. Working together, these factors lead to progression of addiction to alcohol and other drugs.

Medical DetoxificationDrugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term "medical detoxification" means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Individualized TreatmentSome facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person's unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
