Turnbridge Drug Treatment

On behalf of R.I.V.E.R. Educational Consulting, Dr. Kfoury was honored to have spent the day learning about Turnbridge Treatment Programs and Turnbridge Academy in New Haven, Connecticut.  Dr. Kfoury was able to visit the clinical intake center, the residential homes, as well as visit with the wonderful staff at all locations.

Dr. Kfoury could not speak more highly of a group of dedicated staff members, the carefully and comprehensibly designed multi-tiered program, and the extensive consideration given to those fighting addiction and co-occurring disorders and their families. What stood out to her the most was the carefully constructed support system for the families, especially addressing the emotional and social needs of siblings of those fighting addiction.  Too often, siblings are a forgotten link – one that Turnbridge actively sought to bring wholeheartedly into the process.

If you are or know of someone actively fighting an addiction, please do not hesitate to contact Turnbridge at 877.996.4395

Here are a few of the pictures that were taken on the visit. A big Thank you to the Turnbridge Staff and Justin Cambria, the Outreach Coordinator for hosting our Dr. Kfoury!
