Transition (“Bridger”) and Diversion Services

Independent Living provides Transition (Bridger) and Diversion Services to people with psychiatric & co-occurring addictive disabilities in the Mid-Hudson region of New York. The goal is to aid in the prevention of hospitalization and homelessness, this program provides wrap-around support, including core independent living services. Our bridgers are on-site and on-call at local hospitals to assist individuals being discharged from the mental health units to connect with necessary supports for their continuing journey of recovery. Our diversion specialists proactively engage individuals who have been evaluated but not hospitalized, providing intensive peer intervention during periods of crisis. For more information on our Transition (Bridger) and Diversion Services, please call (845) 342-1192 x308.
