Community drug and alcohol services

The Bridges

The Bridges, run by The Forward Trust, provides full-time, structured residential rehabilitation for men involved in the criminal justice system as a result of their substance misuse.

Established in 2004, The Bridges is the only residential drug and alcohol treatment facility in the UK specifically designed for male offenders and works collaboratively with the probation service as an alternative to custody.

Residents get support for their problems with drugs and alcohol through a combination of assignment groups, workshops, group therapy and one to one counselling.

Further support is available to help residents find a job and somewhere to live, making sure they have the best possible chance to maintain their recovery.
