The role of BridgePoint is to support self-discovery, as well as skill-building, in the transition from letting go of old, harmful life patterns to discovering a variety of new and empowering tools to use when responding to the challenges of life. This support is provided in a program with three sequential modules that symbolize the process of building a bridge to recovery. Our biopsychosocial model of care is recovery based sequential programming... coming to a retreat is the first step! Participants can self refer for a retreat but will need the support of a doctor and counsellor to attend Module 1 and Module 2. Programs are available free of charge for Saskatchewan residents.
BridgePoint operates in partnership with the Saskatchewan Health Authority as a community-based organization as part of the continuum of healthcare in Saskatchewan. BridgePoint is not a medical facility, and as such, participants are required to be medically and psychiatrically stable at the time of application, upon admission, and for the duration of the program. Our program is not a replacement for medical or acute care.
Each module includes intensive experiential learning and teaching sessions within a group-based model, individual discussions, and processing of personal experiences. Individuals are encouraged to progress at their own rate toward their personal or optimal level of wellness. BridgePoint does not offer continuous residential programming. We offer both virtual and onsite programs throughout the year. We can now accommodate up to 8 participants during each program to comply with our COVID-19 resumption plan and to allow for diversity and connection as a group. Check out our new program options as we respond to the increased demand during COVID-19.
