Bridgeway Crossings
Supportive Housing

For persons who are in the early to middle stages of recovery and in need of a structured, alcohol and drug free environment, Bridgeway Crossings offers housing and recovery support services in an apartment setting.

Apartment living

The apartments offer a serene and supportive environment and are conveniently located on the bus line at the corner of Shelby Avenue and South Fourth Street – next door to Samaritan’s treatment campus. The emphasis of the program is on continued recovery, maintaining employment, and continued development of personal skills and resources needed to maintain a more independent lifestyle. Recovery support activities include on-site group meetings and activities, community-based AA/NA/DRA meetings, and other recovery related activities.

Accommodations

Bridgeway Crossings is a gated complex comprised of twelve single-occupancy apartments and six double-occupancy units. Each apartment has been recently renovated with new kitchen appliances, bathroom vanities, restored hardwood floors, and patios. The community building has a group lounge and great room for both small and large group activities, and is equipped with a big-screen television, laundry facilities, and a kitchen.

The double occupancy units come fully furnished, while residents in the single units provide their own furniture, with the exception of kitchen appliances which are provided. All residents are responsible for providing their own personal items, i.e., food, clothes, personal hygiene items, alarm clock, etc.

Kristan J

When I came to Samaritan in August 2016 I was broken, hopeless and lost. I was tired and longed for something different for my life, but I didn’t know exactly what that something was.

I will never forget how I finally found it on the third day here.

I no longer wanted the life of pain and turmoil that my addiction had caused. I was willing to do whatever it took and with the amazing help, guidance and suggestions of the counselors my life is forever changed.

I was given a second chance at life and I will forever be grateful for what Samaritan did for a drug addict like me.
