California Bridge Program

California Bridge is working to ensure that people with substance use disorder receive 24/7 high-quality care in every California hospital by 2025.CA Bridge seeks to fully integrate addiction treatment into standard medical practice — increasing access to treatment to save more lives. CA Bridge is disrupting addiction treatment by approaching substance use disorder as a condition that can, and should, be treated by medical professionals like any other life-threatening medical condition. California Bridge is working with more than 200 hospitals to make rapid response treatment widely available throughout the state.

California Bridge is also providing support to hospitals through the Behavioral Health Pilot Project, which supports nearly two-thirds of California’s hospitals with hiring and training behavioral health counselors to connect individuals with mental health and substance use treatment in the emergency department.
