WestBridge is a family founded non-profit organization, providing evidence-based integrated treatment for mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders since 2001.
With Residential and Assertive Community Treatment programs built upon evidence-based practices pioneered at Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center, we address mental illness and substance use disorders together, in the same setting, by the same treatment team.
Men come from all over the country for our specialized treatment and we fully integrate both family and community into every stage of the treatment process. We provide an effective healing atmosphere for our participants and fully support them through their journey of recovery.

Our Family Recovery Resource Program is comprised of our family education and support curriculum, clinical updates, family mentoring, 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
Individuals have higher rates of self-esteem, value, and recovery when actively engaged in their community.

Treatment gave me my whole life back.
It gave my parents their son back. It gave my siblings their brother back.

Doing what works in helping men and their families achieve recovery from dual disorders is important to us at WestBridge. In all of our programs, we utilize evidence-based practices that have been specifically designed for men and families that experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
Our residential treatment program in Manchester, NH; provides evaluation, treatment, and support in a safe, home-like environmentfor adult men who experience mental illness and co-occuring substance use disorders. Our caring professionals are on-site 24 hours a day.
Our Care Management Service for adult men is based on the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model. Studies have shown that ACT services are highly effective for men with co-occurring disorders who may need extra support to live independently in their communities and gain recovery skills.
WestBridge is strongly committed to the integration of family in treatment. We have developed the evidence-based practice of Family Education and Support (FES). During FES, we support men and their families in working together over the course of his stay through education, skill building, and problem solving.
At WestBridge we work with men and their families from all around the country, and in some cases, the world. Once we have completed our screening process and determined that our services may be well-suited to meet your family’s needs, we have the ability to bring our admissions process to you, wherever you are.
