About The Bridges

About us

Located in Hull, The Bridges is The Forward Trust’s residential substance misuse treatment centre aimed at men with drug or alcohol addiction. The centre is the one of the few facilities in the UK with a specialism in working with ex-offenders.

Our effective interventions aim to successfully treat the deeper issues behind both the substance misuse and any criminality that goes with it. We have successfully supported a wide range of clients, from those that have no criminal record to those who have been entrenched long term within the criminal justice system.

Many of the staff at the centre bring their own lived experience and expertise of addiction and off ending. They understand the needs of people who need support to tackle their substance misuse problem, to break the cycle of addiction and associated crime.

Our treatment programme meets the requirements of Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR) and Alcohol Treatment Requirement (ATR) orders. It is also considered an acceptable address, in many cases, for Home Detention Curfew (HDC) and licence conditions.
