Northwood Residential Treatment Program is a clinically managed medium intensity (ASAM Level III.5) residential program providing treatment for males between the ages of 12 and 18. The program is certified by the Alabama Department of Mental Health and is located on just over 72 acres of land on The Bridge's Gadsden Campus in Etowah County, Alabama. 

Northwood provides innovative, evidence-based approaches to recovery for adolescent males struggling with a substance use disorder. An integral part of the program’s curriculum is the KIDS Journal System. These evidence-based interactive journals were developed by The Change Companies to assist youth in making permanent, positive life changes. Northwood Residential Treatment Program is a strong therapeutic program. Each week, clients receive 1.5 hours of  individual therapy, 7.5 hours of group therapy, and 3 hours of peer support group. They also participate in family therapy twice a month, recreational therapy, and participate daily in an accredited school program. In this residential setting, students learn the value of teamwork, positive interactions with others, and developing family relationships. The length of stay is determined by the client's condition and functioning..

  1. Individual and group therapy.
  2. Medical and nursing services as needed.
  3. A system for consultation or referral for identified treatment needs if such services are not available in the program including close coordination of services by the program and an effort by the program to arrange needed medical or psychiatric services by telephone within twenty-four hours of when the need was identified, and in-person services within a time frame appropriate to the severity and issue.
  4. Family treatment services as appropriate.
