An Alternative to Incarceration
Bridges is a collaboration of the San Mateo County Criminal Court, Probation and Sheriff’s departments, Pyramid Alternatives and the Sequoia Adult School. Bridges targets the complex needs of a vulnerable population through intensive drug and alcohol treatment, education in critical life skills and computer training.
Bridges is a highly successful alternative to incarceration. Participants are non-violent substance abusers with a history of addiction, unemployment, homelessness and co-occurring disorders.
