Letter From Our Founder

Turnbridge is – and always has been – defined by change. Fifteen years ago, we designed a program that fundamentally changed the way addiction and mental health treatment is understood and delivered to facilitate better and more lasting change for our clients. Our desire to make change was driven by our belief that learning to overcome the adversity of addiction and dysfunction is a path to power–it is an opportunity to learn how to overcome any of life’s challenges. Helping people capture this opportunity led us to continuously learn, grow, and improve. Today, with the introduction of outpatient services, this spirit of innovation continues.

For years, Turnbridge has welcomed people from around the country to our Connecticut facilities to receive treatment and care. But Turnbridge would not exist without the partnership, generosity, diversity, and spirit of the Connecticut communities we call home. As thankful neighbors, we are proud to make the skills that have helped so many people the world over available to more people here in Westport, CT. Epidemic levels of addiction and co-occurring mental illness continue to ravage individuals and families around the country and New Haven is no exception. Never before has there been a greater need for compassion, understanding, and effective care. This knowledge compelled us to develop our new outpatient treatment services.

The expert licensed clinicians of Turnbridge can now see clients on an outpatient and intensive-outpatient basis in our clinical center in downtown Westport. Now, more of our friends and neighbors have an exceptional choice for addiction treatment and mental health care that’s close to home. Turnbridge outpatient services are driven by the same commitment to pioneering treatments and excellent outcomes for which our residential programs have become known. We will never stop working to reset the standard for effective integrated addiction treatment and we welcome the opportunity to our best work for the people of New Haven and surrounding communities.
