As an elected official, I have seen Bridges of Iowa consistently provide an innovative continuum of care to Iowans who are overcoming addiction. As an Iowan, I see the challenges our communities face with substance abuse and most recently the opioid crisis. Without the work of organizations such as Bridges, those in recovery would be at increased risk for relapse and jail recidivism. By focusing on long-term recovery and community integration, Bridges of Iowa has helped people rebuild themselves as productive members of our community.
