The Bridge partners with a third-party insurance coverage expert to help you get a full or partial reimbursement from your provider. This is a reimbursement that is determined by your individual coverage and provider. We can help you get the best coverage your plan will allow. However, we cannot guarantee coverage under every plan.
Navigating insurance coverage with different providers is difficult and time consuming for the types of health conditions our program is made for. And it requires special knowledge. So in order to manage this we employ a third-party insurance advocate, compensated by a 10% fee paid from the total amount of insurance coverage attained by their efforts. In most cases, the advocate is able to get more coverage for our guests than they would be able to do on their own, so the fee is priced in.
We've found that this solution is well worth the compensation for almost all our guests. However you are welcome to navigate your own coverage and we will help you any other way that we can.
We are committed to making our recovery retreat accessible to as many people as possible. Please contact our intake specialist for more information. The Bridge Recovery Center is Joint Commission Accredited.
The Bridge is a partner with Care Credit. For qualified applicants, Care Credit offers six-month financing and other options.
The Bridge Recovery program is a three-week retreat with full accommodations in the sunny and peaceful desert just outside of St. George, Utah. We’ve helped people of all ages and backgrounds rejuvenate their mind and body through our structured program of proven clinical and holistic methodologies. Many of our guests make more progress towards recovery in three weeks at The Bridge than years of outpatient therapy.
All meals, housing, therapies and activities are included. We limit each retreat session to a maximum of 20 people to ensure each guest receives our full attention and one-on-one personalized care. Our whole-person approach to recovery delivers a healing, lasting and memorable experience for all our guests. Our program is overseen by an experienced team of physicians, therapists, counselors, mental health experts, fitness trainers, lifestyle coaches and holistic healers.
Call us at 877-885-9567 or fill out a quick form on the appointments page. Our guest coordinator will speak with you to learn more about your situation and assess if you are a good fit for the program.
Once you are cleared, a deposit is required to secure your reservation and pricing. We will guide you along the rest of the steps to prepare for your session dates and ensure that you have all of your questions and concerns answered.
