Dual diagnosis is our sole focus. WestBridge is leading the way in effectively treating men 18 and older who struggle with symptoms of co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. We treat each individual using an integrated model that addresses mental illness and substance use disorders concurrently.
Dual Diagnosis Residential Treatment Program Backed by Research
The leading evidence-based practices we use here at WestBridge have a proven track record in long-term dual diagnosis treatment. The foundations of our practices were developed by the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center.
This means that our therapies for mental illness and substance use disorders both complement and strengthen one another and are proven to work. Rather than contradict each other, they aid in one’s recovery. With the application of these practices, along with the right team, men can, and do, recover.
The Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center evaluates the effectiveness of the evidence-based practices we use every three years. In the most recent evaluation, WestBridge achieved the highest possible ranking in all of its evidence-based treatment areas.
The most meaningful validation of our treatment comes directly from testimonials of the men who have succeeded in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and from families who have entered their own healing and recovery. WestBridge’s mission is to promote the recovery of adult men and their families living with co-occurring substance use disorders and psychotic and/or affective illness over the course of a lifetime.
We believe in meeting people where they are in their recovery, no matter what stage of change they are in. This includes those who may not yet recognize the severity of their illnesses.
Unique to our organization, both family and community are included throughout treatment. Family participation, education, and support are critical to the process and all are consistently shown to aid in the individual‘s and family’s successful recovery. Our Admissions Team specializes in supporting families and individuals in taking the first steps towards recovery.

Continually Expanding Our Knowledge
Through our commitment to our participants and families, WestBridge is collaborating with Griffin Recovery Enterprises, a nationally recognized organization, to integrate “Helping Men Recover”. We are working to explore all areas of our organization to be responsive and sensitive to the needs of the men we work with. This work will help to integrate the principles of trauma-informed care and the unique needs of men who experience co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.
These principles include safety, trustworthiness and transparency, peer support and mutual self-help, collaboration and mutuality, empowerment, voice and choice, cultural, historical and gender issues, and mutual responsibility and compassion.
