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 in facing your substance use disorder.  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 drug 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.

Located in Southern California, The Bridges of San Diego offers a world-class Intensive Outpatient Program for drug and alcohol addictions, with evidence-based recovery results.  Our caring and compassionate treatment team will work with you in a group environment, including individual therapy as needed with day and evening appointment times available for your convenience.  And we are centrally located in La Mesa, just a few miles from downtown San Diego and the beaches!

What Our Clients Say

"Coming into the Bridges intensive outpatient program was one of the best things I could have done for myself. Being new to recovery, I was very hesitant and resistant to becoming a new person, sober and recovered. The counselors at The Bridges of San Diego were nothing but welcoming and encouraging through the whole process. It is hard to take that initial step into treatment and put yourself out there to get help, but being part of this program was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Coming up on a year of recovery and I am nothing but grateful. I highly recommend this program to others needing help but unsure of where to find it or scared to step out. I looked forward to coming and seeing my "second family" through the whole process and continue to come back because they have meant so much to me and my journey through recovery. If you're looking for the best drug treatment in San Diego, then look no further!"


"I came to The Bridges of San Diego broken, embarrassed, ashamed, and so overwhelmed with the thought of getting clean and healthy. Dr. Profit, Jenni, Kai, Dave and Sara made me feel so welcomed and normal. Each one of them played a huge role in my rehab and helping me understand that I'm not alone and never will be. They truly care about their clients, not only while a patient but after as well. In fact, I still go back a couple times a month for the group therapy block. And every time I do I am welcomed with open arms. I will never be able to thank them enough for being so kind, compassionate, and helping me stay clean and aiding me in living a much better life."


"The Bridges truly gave me the tools to help me recover from my dependence on alcohol and cocaine. I was a broken shell of a person and knew no way of living other than using drugs and alcohol. After detox & 3 months of inpatient rehabs, I spent 4 months in their Alumni house, along with 4 months of IOP. The Bridges is special, in my opinion, due to the fact that they also include a seperate group time for only women. They also came along side of me to attend a few 12 step meetings, which gave me the opportunity to build a new group of stable friends in recovery who were able to help support me on my journey. More than anything, I was willing to change and try something different. The Bridges has every means of being able to help someone get sober. In my opinion, anyone who says The Bridges alcohol treatment San Diego is anything other than extraordinary, was not willing to pick up and use the tools that were laid at our feet. Thank you for helping me learn to live a full and beautiful life!"
