The Bridge to Recovery - Bowling Green

1745 The Bridge Road, Bowling Green, Kentucky, 42101
The Bridge to Recovery specializes in programs designed to assist individuals and affected family members suffering from codependency, trauma, anxiety, anger issues, depression, obsessive thought patterns, compulsive behaviors and other negative behavior patterns.

Facility Highlights

  • Relapse Prevention
  • Christian Tradition
  • Diverse, Inclusive Program


  • Codependency

    Our program is designed for all members of the addictive family system (but not concurrently). Our groups consist of people with a wide array of negative behavior patterns, including substance issues, relationship problems, sexual compulsivity, eating/food issues, workaholism, perfectionism, control and caretaking, misery and martyrdom, rage and anger, and anxiety and depression. We apply twelve-step principles to all of these self-defeating, unmanageable habits.
  • Trauma

    Trauma and traumatic experiences result from highly stressful events that shatter a person’s sense of safety, security and serenity. In many cases, trauma renders one helpless and vulnerable or hardened and volatile in a world perceived as dangerous. In many cases, traumatic experiences entail a threat to life or overall well-being, but any situation that leaves a person feeling overwhelmed and alone can be traumatic, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but one’s interpretation of the event. The more anxious, panicky and paralyzed a person feels, the more likely the persona has been traumatized.

This should not be called a treatment center. You will find no treatment there. They have no professionals on stuff. What they have is recovering addicts running an aa program. I like how they keep saying ‘hurt people hurt people’ while putting people with anger issues to run this prison like system. The only therapy their ‘therapists’ know is the one that comes from aa books and they apply it to everybody regardless of their issues or beliefs. So I guess, it will work on some. Although if you are that lucky person who that program is helpful for, save your money, go to an aa meeting. As far as amenities go, you will find no luxury there, but the living conditions are ok. The food is horrible. All you get is a buffet of fast food with an iceberg lettuce station, which I guess is their claim to a healthy diet. The only variety you get there is a choice of toppings for your hamburger patty or if you are vegan, it’s just a choice of toppings.

If your a survivor of extreme trauma do NOT go to the bridge. The clinical staff is not experienced enough and the program needs to be evaluated. Harm was done!

The Bridge has the beginnings of something great. They do not have a psychiatrist on staff. The Bridge unravels you and doesn't put you back together, unless of course you are able to afford staying at least 12 weeks. I can't imagine what percent of patients are able to. Understanding of trauma conceptually.

Before entering treatment I was unsure if I wanted to live or die. I spent 2 months in the Bowling Green Ky center, and my life has been forever changed. I am the happiest I have ever been. I have a sense of serenity I never even knew existed. Not only did I leave a changed person but my stay there was wonderful. The staff, counselors, the lodging, the chefs, just everything was wonderful. My only advice is to bring sweatpants because the food really is that good.

The Bridge To Recovery does not support the healing of family relationships. I hope nobody else has to go through the experience that our family has with this treatment facility.
