A Bridgeway success story!

After being charged with assault and battery, Steven was referred to Bridgeway. Steven was angry about the situation he was in and initially struggled with the program. Following counseling and a psychiatric evaluation, a treatment team was able to identify triggers of Steven’s aggression and provide more effective treatment. Steven responded well to treatment and began to cooperate with program requirements, ultimately making him happier and helping him navigate the process.


During his time in placement, Steven completed his GED and had above average scores. While undergoing treatment, he enrolled in an 18 month program at Michigan Institute of Aviation and Technology (MIAT). He has remained drug free, attends therapy at The Guidance Center and has taken the initiative to seek employment.


Although facing challenges, Steven is maintaining a positive mindset and is working towards a brighter future every day.
