Bridgeway Sober Living’s Mission
Our homes are ideal for individuals who want more out of life, who truly want to heal, recover and want to experience the happiness, joy and freedom they know is possible. Some of our residents have used words such as feeling stuck, trapped, depressed, angry, numb, just surviving or living through the motions.
Many of our residents come into our homes after attending long term treatment care and just need a healthy environment to work their after care program, others have been sober a long time and enjoy the healthy community living aspect that BridgeWay provides.
