Evidence-Based Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment for Men in Manchester, New Hampshire

Welcome

Our mission is to compassionately provide mental health and substance use treatment to individuals and their families. We incorporate evidence-based practices to promote resiliency and lifelong recovery.

Man being helpedWestBridge welcomes you to our treatment community, where we believe that every individual can heal through the process of recovery. Established in 2001, we are a family-founded CARF Accredited, licensed, non-profit organization located in Manchester, New Hampshire, with treatment outcomes published in an international journal. Men come from across the nation for our specialized care, and we integrate both family and community into every stage of our treatment. For men over 18 and their families experiencing mental illness with or without co-occurring substance use, we provide more than treatment. We provide hope.

Our Programs:

Men may directly enter either of our programs.

Men’s Residential Treatment

Our residential treatment program in Manchester, NH, provides evaluation, treatment, and support in a safe, home-like environment for adult men who experience mental illness with or without co-occurring substance use. We utilize multiple simultaneous evidence-based practices. Our caring professionals are on-site 24/7/365.

Men’s Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)

Men may enter our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program directly or as a step-down from our residential program. ACT is an effective, evidence-based model. Men live independently in our local community with support from our transdisciplinary team ranging from two to fifty plus hours per week based on evolving individual needs, with 24/7 access to our team. While some services are provided in an office setting, ACT team members primarily work with men in their homes, the workplace, and in the community where challenges may occur, or support is needed. We also reserve two respite beds in our residential program for ACT participants in need of additional support.

Strong Outcomes with Evidence-Based Practices

By utilizing multiple, simultaneous evidence-based practices and a caring treatment team, we provide effective treatment. Our evidence-based treatment approaches have been extensively researched and demonstrated to be effective for individuals experiencing mental illness and substance abuse.

Demonstrated in our outcome measures, our participants with co-occurring mental illness and substance use show significant success in achieving independent living, reaching/maintaining abstinence, independent control of their mental health symptoms. They also increase time spent with non substance-using friends, and independently managing their sleeping habits to maintain good sleep hygiene. Participants also show a significant increase in the number of hours worked and the number of courses enrolled in higher education, improved relationships with family members, greater awareness of their spirituality, and independent management of their physical health.

Based on our successful model of care, we have extended our services to include treatment specifically for mental illness also. Men can, and do, recover.

Licensed and Accredited

Our residential program is dually licensed in New Hampshire for both mental health and substance use disorder treatment. Our Residential program has been accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International since 2010.

Family Inclusion & Participation

We have seen that recovery is best fostered when family members are involved in the treatment and decision-making process. Our Family Recovery Resource Program is comprised of our family education and support curriculum, clinical updates, family peer support, webinars, online peer groups and more. By embracing these supports, families learn to manage the impact of co-occurring disorders while simultaneously reconnecting and healing together. Read more

Community Integration

Individuals have higher rates of self-esteem, value, and recovery when actively engaged in their community. Participants in our Residential Program utilize community fitness resources such as the YMCA, attend mutual support meetings (such as Alcoholics Anonymous), engage in social and wellness activities, and work to improve independent living skills. For those in our Assertive Community Treatment Program, many clinical services, as well as supported employment, volunteerism, and education, are provided in the local community. Read more
