JOIN IN THE LEHIGH VALLEY RECOVERY MOVEMENT
Scholarship funding requests are provided on a case-by-case basis to qualified men and women, ages 18 and above, who originate from the greater Lehigh Valley and struggle with a primary substance use disorder.
Funding requests will be considered for those qualified individuals who are scheduled to successfully transition from a residential treatment program (ideally of 28 days or more). Or, who are transitioning from successfully completing a detox program and for whom traditional short-term residential treatment programs have not been previously productive.
Only candidates with a demonstrated strong desire to sustain their sobriety, and a willingness to actively participate in a sober living community will be considered for a scholarship.
IMPORTANT - All scholarship funding requests must be submitted by, and received from, a clinical professional, case worker, or other equivalent professionals from the referring facility in which the candidate currently resides.
Applications WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED from outside sources.
Applications will only be considered for those seeking transition into a qualified recovery residence. A qualified recovery residence is one that is:
Licensed or Accredited by a state agency
Certified by a respected organization
Or, is considered to have met the National Alliance for Recovery Residences (NARR) 'core criteria' for either a Level 2, 3, or 4 residence (click 'Review Core Criteria' button below.)
Note: Bridge Beyond Addiction is the final arbitrator of determining whether a recovery residence meets the qualifications for funding approval.
Upon the completed review of the scholarship application, a Bridge Beyond Addiction Advisory Board member will email the referring professional to notify them of the final determination.
If approved, a confirming email will additionally be sent to the referring professional stating the dollar amount to be funded. Note: scholarships are only paid directly to the approved recovery residence. Funds will not be released to the recovery residence until after confirmation that the applicant has arrived and was admitted into the residence.
