The preeminent mental health and addiction treatment program for young men

Turnbridge welcomes young men to its New Haven, Connecticut facilities to overcome mental health and substance use disorders, and to learn the skills and confidence needed to lead full, passionate, and purposeful lives.

Core to our practice is the three-phased program of therapy, experience, and structured living we call Preparative Care℠. Here, the goal is not a return to life before treatment, but arrival at the exceptional life beyond it. To facilitate this transformative change, Turnbridge carefully cultivates the programs, practices, people and places that empower young men to change from within.

Our Mission

Turnbridge provides young adults struggling with identity crisis and a lack of purpose compounded with drug addiction and co-occurring disorders the ability to realize their full potential by transforming the affliction of addiction into an opportunity for actualization. By providing real world opportunities over the course of three phases, we afford them the opportunity to practically apply the coping skills they’re learning in real life situations, while receiving active guidance and support from their peers and their Care Team

Every aspect of the Turnbridge experience is thoughtfully engineered to facilitate self-actualization. Its beautiful environs stand as a constant reminder that clients, care-givers, and this work are of tremendous value and importance. Its care and activities not only engage mind and body, but speak to a new set of expectations for personal performance, self-reliance, and trust. By facilitating self-change, by redefining the rules of engagement, their personal challenges, and their world, and by teaching the skills of successful living in real time within the context of the real world, Turnbridge surpasses the promise of traditional addiction treatment programs. It’s results are transformed individuals who possess the compassion and the grit to thrive in the face of each new Turnbridge.

A Nationally Recognized Young Adult Drug Rehab

Turnbridge is a three-phased drug rehab designed specifically for young men with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues.

This accredited and nationally acclaimed drug rehab combines an evidence-based, medical drug rehab model with traditional Twelve Step recovery and a comprehensive, experiential sober living designed to meet the developmental needs of young men.

It exposes young men to a drug-free world gradually as they develop an understanding of their disease, build the skills to resist relapse, form meaningful relationships, practice living a sober lifestyle, and begin to make positive choices that will lead them to a healthy and productive life.

Our Comprehensive Drug Rehabilitation Center

Drawing on over a decade of experience, our unique addiction treatment program is designed to prepare young men to stand on their own as responsible, sober adults.

Moving toward success in recovery and in life takes time. Turnbridge offers that time, and recognizes that each young man makes the journey through addiction treatment on his own calendar. By providing sober living in conjunction with outpatient substance use & co-occurring disorder treatment, we afford our clients the opportunity to explore new hobbies, to create new friends, to outline new personal goals and to redefine their place in the world, in conjunction with clinical therapy, while practicing their newfound coping skills under the watchful eye of our support team.

Turnbridge recognizes that not every client enrolled in the drug rehab center share the same level of motivation or readiness for change. Thus our clinical team employs the Stages of Change model in order to assess where clients are in their change process. Understanding a client’s stage of change and level of motivation is critical for effective services. It is imperative that we start clients at the point in the process that is right for them rather than the point where they wish to be.

Accredited Addiction Treatment in CT

Clinical and psychiatric care at Turnbridge is provided off site at our outpatient addiction treatment center located in downtown New Haven, CT. There’s a reason for that: We know from experience that the recovery journey works best when young men combine sober living with outpatient addiction treatment. This healthy physical distance enhances the overall integration life coaching, character development, and drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

Turnbridge is accredited by Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Turnbridge’s outpatient addiction treatment center has been accredited for a period of three years, the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an addiction treatment program.
