The Assisi Bridge House (ABH) is a residential halfway house for chemically dependent men. The Independent Living Program (ILP) is a transitional residential program for men who have succesfully completed the ABH program.
Men with addictions are given the opportunity to live in a community setting in which they make a commitment to change. Assisi Bridge House supports the 12-step program of AA and NA. Each ABH resident works on a monthly treatment plan addressing his personal needs. Family participation is encouraged. The staff includes licensed, master's level counselors with many years of experience in treating addictions.
ABH is internationally accredited through the Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). The ABH is a United Way program and receives support through South Central Louisiana Human Services Authority.
ABH provides recovery services to about 50 men each year with an average length of stay over three months. On average, sixty percent (60%) of residents who stay over 90 days are sober when contacted after a year.
