Philosophy Overview

Our Preparative Care℠ Program and rehab center was founded over 14 years ago, on the idea that each time we confront the challenges of our own human condition, we face a turning point – between conquering, and being conquered. One's ability to live one's purpose and become one's best self in the face of adversity is the crucible of character and the definition of successful living. We believe that here begins a path toward greatness, and once on this path, anything becomes possible. Our mission is to lead young adults to the trailhead and prepare them to walk a life in which getting better never ends.

Turnbridge Connecticut Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment Program

To better understand Turnbridge's Preparative Care℠ approach to drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment, let us first look at what it is not. Turnbridge is not an "inpatient rehab" or "Recovery center". Turnbridge is so much more.  These terms imply fixing that which is broken or restoring to a previous state of being. However, At Turnbridge, we believe that the person who became addicted to drugs or alcohol was never that individual's best self, and therefore, returning to this previous state of being should not be the goal. Instead, Turnbridge thinks of what it does as facilitating “emergence”. “Emergence” implies evolving from within or coming out of. Emergence is to go forward.

Preparative Care℠ is delivered in three distinct phases. As clients progress through each phase, they develop the skills, character, and mental momentum needed to move assertively into a full, sober life after graduating from Turnbridge.
