About Us

How It Started

Andrew Drazan, Wellbridge’s Co-Founder and Chairman, grew up on Long Island with his brothers. Their mother, a single mom, struggled during their childhood and ultimately succumbed to an overdose. This tragic loss at the age of nine years old impacted Andrew profoundly. Later in life, with a clearer understanding of what had happened, he dreamed of creating a place of dignity and hope for patients and families struggling with addiction. The realization of that vision is Wellbridge.

Gathering support and determined to go beyond existing addiction resources, a team was established to build an onsite community of top clinicians and research scientists to ensure a continuous, back-and-forth dialogue to develop new treatment approaches and provide advanced therapies. Today, Wellbridge is on its way to transforming addiction treatment for patients and families.
