Get to Know The Ridge

The Ridge opened its doors in late 2023 as a center for recovery, rehabilitation and holistic health. However, it is an extension of Rushford, a longstanding leader in inpatient and outpatient mental health and addiction treatment and services. Both are part of Hartford HealthCare’s Behavioral Health Network, ensuring individuals have equitable and seamless access to experts in both physical and mental health.

The beautiful 60-acre site upon which the Ridge rests has a long history as a place for spiritual health and healing, as it was previously home to a religious retreat. While The Ridge is not a religious facility and welcomes people of faiths and beliefs, some historic icons and artwork remain on site as comforting symbols of hope and healing and to honor the longstanding history and purpose of the property.
