TOGETHER WE WILL BUILD A PLACE OF SOLACE, HEALING AND RECOVERY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION
The Bridge Youth & Family Services has been a touchstone for some of the most vulnerable families in the Okanagan for 50 years. As an accredited agency, we achieve and maintain the highest international standards of professional practice.
We embrace the Okanagan community with two distinct arms of service. Since inception we have focused on community and families – we work preventatively with new parents and their infants, we counsel families who are struggling with their role, and we are a leader in working on behalf of the Ministry of Children and Family Development with young people in our community who are the most marginalized, street entrenched and disenfranchised.
Our other arm of service includes our recovery and addictions programs – as the largest provider of substance use services for the Interior Health Authority, we provide Supported Recovery Housing, Intensive Live-In Adult & Youth Treatment, community-based naloxone training, Outreach Overdose Prevention, and Withdrawal Management – detox – for both young people and adults.
It is with this confidence borne of experience that we present the Youth Recovery House campaign. With your assistance, we can build an Okanagan solution to help our children and youth overcome an increasingly dangerous dependence on illicit drugs.
