Real Testimonials from Real Clients

I met David when I was staying in the House he was managing in San Francisco. He is one of the most genuine, caring people I know. He not only did a great job managing the house, but more importantly, he was always there for anyone going through a rough time that needed some extra support. There were many times I saw him take someone aside and really listen to them – offering any help he could, whether it be specific support tools, or just being a friend that cared. I’ve even seen David recently go on his own amazing life journey and admire him for taking a leap of faith to do what he’s truly passionate about, while helping so many people in the process. I feel fortunate to have met David and to learn so much from him.

BridgeWay has given me the safe haven to work on recovery that I am forever grateful for. The best experiences have come from the community that lives here. I have been able to make lasting and true friends here who have my back and support me. The house managers and owner provide a safe environment for me to be able to go through the necessary steps of recovery without worrying about distractions that life outside of sober living brings. The rules of the house are very reasonable and kept enforced to allow accountability for our actions which helps everyone be beneficial to each other and prevents conflicts. I cant say enough about this place and how much of a blessing it has been for me to come here and do what has for so long been put aside. Thank you David and the BridgeWay community for making this a one of a kind experience.

As a professional who relocated to Austin, I had the ability to pretty much live where ever I wanted. However, I felt that sober living would help me to continue to build and progress. From the moment I learned of BridgeWay I knew that I not only found a place to live, but a place to grow. This is not the place for someone that only wants to stay sober, this is a community for people who want to change their entire life. A healthy, happy life is built upon the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical areas. At BridgeWay you find ways to strengthen and grow in each area. Everyday in the community I find one of the areas influenced and improved through my interaction with the others. This is a community for everyone. Age, race, sex, profession, sexual orientation or length of sobriety is not a hindrance to the program. If you have the sincere desire to change your life, in every way, than this is the community that will help you. The only thing that can keep a person from becoming the best version of themselves, is not having the desire and standing in their own way. My life is better, fuller and brighter today because I discovered BridgeWay.

“I’ve known David for over a year now, from before I committed to sobriety. He was instrumental in moving me in the direction that led me to treatment and recovery. His energy is infectious, and his desire to continue growing and healing in recovery serves as a beacon of hope and light for all who come into contact with him.

Bridgeway recovery is a breath of fresh air into sober living world.  Is far more than just another sober house; beyond acting recovery and watching steps, residents are given access to a holistic style of treatment involving nutrition, fitness and meditation that fosters a healthy lifestyle. David is a highly capable recovery coach creating a positive environment ideal for healing and spiritual growth.  An atmosphere of non-judgmental acceptance ensures that it doesn’t matter where you have come from but rather where you want your life to be.

There is enough of structure and guidance to ensure that the house runs smoothly and at the same time you enjoy freedom I feel at home. The holistic nature of this program in particular, allows house members to feel like we are in this together rather than a group of strangers.   Personally, I enjoyed the Stronghorn Fitness membership, which gives me access to all the fitness classes in and around downtown Austin on a daily basis.

Weekly check-in’s with Dave help me to stay on track with weekly goals so that I can continue to make forward progress in my recovery. He always has great knowledge and input to answer all my questions and empowers me to soul-search and discover the deeper causes of my issues. As a recovery coach, Dave, is able to see the best in you and bring it to the surface. Genuinely cares for each resident and motivates you to have faith in the recovery process and keep moving forward.

Bridgeway has given me the chance to take back my life and build a strong foundation for future success.

His giving and loving heart enable him to focus all his energy on the person he is with and see for them greater possibilities than they may see for themselves. He is someone who can do anything and I have seen him accomplish that and now fortunately for those involved wth Bridgeway Sober Living, will experience what its like to be so moved toward a desired direction of health, abundance and love.

David has a unique way of making everyone in his presence feel adequate, important, and worthy. I met David when I felt none of those things. He helped to restore faith in myself, God and other people. There is something powerful about feeling like you are ENOUGH and perfect just the way you are. Thank you for all you have given me.
