Bridges to Recovery was recently granted a permanent license for its third residential treatment facility, located in Bel Air. This new all-suites facility helps Bridges to Recovery meet growing demand for its services among its clients and others suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma or other mental health disorders, who seek an alternative to hospital care.
Following an intensive review by the State of California and the local authorities, Bridges to Recovery's Bel Air residence earned its final, permanent license by the Department of Social Services in December. The program is also certified by the Department of Mental Health and the Bel Air facility is therefore subject to regulation and unannounced inspection by two state agencies. Such certification and licensing is awarded only to those facilities that meet the highest standards for scope of services, staff education, staff-to-patient ratios and reporting.
"We're thrilled to receive this recognition from the State of California," stated Michael Brodsky MD, Bridges to Recovery Medical Director. "We know that consumers of residential care have many options, and we believe that this benchmark reflects our commitment to the highest standards of treatment quality and holistic patient-centered care."
The Bel Air residence offers clients their own living suites, more individual space and all of the creature comforts of a luxury home. Located in a park-like setting with a pool, fountains, and ocean views, the residence helps clients relax so that they may focus on developing new pathways to leading happier and healthier lives. The Bel Air facility joins two other Bridges to Recovery residential facilities, in Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades.
"The licensing process was a wonderful opportunity for our clinical team to illustrate to the different state agencies the integrative and cutting edge treatments we use to help the people who come to us bridge the gap from suffering to wholeness," explained Bridges to Recovery Clinical Director, Trevor Small, Psy.D.
