Intensive Outpatient Program for Alcoholism & Drug Addiction

Is Drug Addiction or Alcoholism ruining your life?  



How many times have you lost something due to your addiction?  From relationships to employment, possessions, your health, your freedom, and even your own self-respect... alcoholism and drug abuse will take it all.  The real question is, how much more are you willing to lose - how much more of your life are you willing to give up?  At what point do you decide that enough is enough?... that you will finally take a stand against the things that are stealing joy, love, and hope for a fulfilling future?

At the Bridges of San Diego, we are here to help you take that stand, to take that first, critical step.  We know what you have lost and we are here to help you get it back!  We believe that alcoholism is a complex disease of the brain and that substance abuse affects not only the addicted individual, but their family, and literally every aspect of life. Although there is no known cure for the progressive disease of addiction, it is absolutely treatable.

The Bridges of San Diego's world-class Intensive Outpatient Program offers treatment for all types of drug addictions and alcoholism, with proven long-term recovery results.  Our caring and compassionate treatment team will work with you in a group environment, or on an individual basis over a six week period, with day and evening appointment times available for your convenience.  And we are centrally located - located in La Mesa, just a few miles from downtown San Diego and the beaches!

Our team can help you to get your life back, but first you must believe and admit that the addiction you are struggling with is real and that this problem will not go away on its own.  Take that bold step toward a new, sober life by contacting us today.  Our representatives are standing by, ready to take your call.  A whole new life is waiting for you - a life that just may be, closer than you think.
