The Bridge is a human service agency that provides counseling services to people facing challenges. The Southboro program is a high-intensity residential program that is a comprehensively staffed and supervised apartment-style residence serving men and women with chronic mental health challenges and a history of substance abuse, who have had difficulty adjusting to community living. The program goal is to assist adults in managing their illness, developing independent living skills, and managing their sobriety. The Department of Mental Health refers individuals to the program.
