What we offer


The district service, a partnership between NHS Bradford District Care Trust and the Bridge Project is the first point of contact for anyone wanting to address their opiate/opiod (e.g. heroin) and/or crack misuse issues. The service offers intensive support and treatment (you will be seen at least once per week) for a period of 6-8 weeks where other issues such as housing, physical health and financial problems can also be addressed. After this initial period the individual is transferred to another service more suited to their longer terms needs and goals - such as a community integrated substance misuse service or an abstinence based service such as the Unity Recovery Centre. The idea is to provide treatment tailored to each individual designed to support their ongoing Recovery Journey.

This service is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team. Staff have a range of professional backgrounds including GPs (with a special interest in substance misuse), social work, nursing, and counselling. We offer a recovery focussed service that reduces the harm substance misuse causes to individuals, families and the community.

Service is by appointment and includes:
