Whether you’re worried about your own drug use or have a growing concern about somebody in your life, ensuring that professional and private help is offered is a crucial step towards recovery.

Many people use drugs to paper over issues in their life, like problems with work or family. Others self-medicate to deal with problems they simply don’t want to face, or have never recovered from. Many drug users even believe their use is under control and purely recreational - that it’s not affecting those around them.

However, if you’re beginning to consider whether your drug usage is acceptable and sustainable, the likelihood is that it simply isn’t. Drug addiction can easily spiral out of control, and the damage it can cause to you and those who care about you is immense.

Don’t sit by if you’re concerned about your drug usage

The fact that you’re beginning to question your lifestyle (or that of somebody you know) is a positive first step, and should be used as a platform from which treatment can be sought.

Drug addiction doesn’t discriminate. Young or old, male or female, rich or poor – drug addiction can hit anyone. There’s no ‘typical’ drug addiction sufferer, each is unique, and requires specialist treatment.

You may be worried about the impact of your drug use on:

  • Your mental health
  • Your relationships
  • Your finances
  • Your physical health
  • Your employment

There’s no doubt that addiction can touch every aspect of your life and it’s only right to be concerned about how your addiction is affecting things. We can help.

Don’t let the choice between the many services available slow you down.

Choosing between the many different services available to you can be confusing. It’s common to be bewildered by the various avenues open to you, but at Broadway we offer a private, comprehensive service to drug users in Bristol and the surrounding area.

A recent survey for Public Health Bristol found that Bristol has a very successful record getting substance users into support services. Quite simply, Bristol has become extremely successful at getting those who need help the support they deserve.

At Broadway, we’re clear about what we can do to help you. Our addiction centre offers recovery care for Bristol and the surrounding areas and we treat addiction, rather than specific substances. Too often, drug addiction is treated as simple dependency. We know that addictive behaviour manifests itself in more than one way, so we aim to equip our clients with the tools they need to sustain a healthy, long-term recovery.

Experts in supporting recovery from drug addiction

Drug addiction can cause immense pain, but at Broadway we specialise in helping our clients to break free from addiction. We treat a wide range of addictive behaviours including alcohol, drugs (and prescription drugs), sex, co-dependency, gambling and gaming. We also work with clients to treat secondary issues such as self-harm or eating disorders.

We provide:

  • Detoxification programmes – a medically supervised procedure designed to help a person overcome their physical dependence on a particular substance. This includes a full suite of psychosocial wraparound services.
  • Primary care – specialist in-house residential care. This typically includes full daily support to complement the physical detoxification programme, including one-to-one counselling, group therapy, lectures and workshops. We also provide a range of complementary therapies, such as acupuncture, Reiki and massage to help clients reduce anxiety and relax.
  • Secondary care – a safe environment to practice and develop what has been learnt in primary care and to prepare for re-entry into the community.

Every week, we help those who think that they can’t be helped. If you’re in the Bristol area and need help with your drug addiction, let us help you re-build and return to a healthy, happy life.
