Once you’ve successfully completed your rehabilitation it’s important to maintain your recovery and avoid a relapse. We know that everyone is different and some may find this more challenging than others, that’s why we run our aftercare sessions, recommend meetings and offer one to one counselling after treatment to help maintain your progress.
Following treatment completion at Broadway Lodge, you will have access to our continuing support through our in-person and online aftercare services which will help you to:
Our in-person and online aftercare sessions are held weekly and they both include group therapy led by a qualified counsellor. You can read about these sessions in further detail below.
Every Thursday we hold an in-person aftercare service in Weston-super-Mare town centre (from the North Somerset Training Community Hub, First Floor, 31 Alexandra Parade, BS23 1QZ). This is led by a qualified Broadway Lodge counsellor and there are two separate group therapy sessions that former Broadway Lodge clients who are clean and sober are welcome to join. The morning session usually includes Auricular Acupuncture and tea and coffee is available at the beginning of both sessions.
For participants who show a commitment to aftercare by attending consistently, there may be the opportunity to have one to one counselling and there are social activities and trips that encourage exploration of new hobbies and interests.
A project support worker is also available at in-person aftercare who provides individual, tailored personal development support such as help with finding volunteering or paid work, accessing a training or college course and employment preparation including CV writing and interview preparation.
The Broadway Lodge in-person aftercare service is also open to people who have never stayed at Broadway Lodge but who are in recovery from addiction, not currently working and are living in North Somerset.
To participate in the Broadway Lodge in-person aftercare, you must register in advance which can be done whilst in treatment at Broadway Lodge or by emailing email@example.com or calling 07305 061503 or 07440 072498 and a member of the aftercare team will be in touch.
Online aftercare means that all former Broadway Lodge clients have unlimited access to our support regardless of where they are located in the world. Online aftercare is a group therapy session led by a Broadway Lodge counsellor most Wednesdays using video-calling platform Zoom, from 10am – 1pm.
We provide all clients with the log-in details during treatment and although there’s no requirement to book in advance, if you would like to join but do not have the log-in details, you can receive these by booking onto an upcoming scheduled session listed on our events page here. We do recommend looking the events page to check when sessions are scheduled for, as occasionally we may have to skip a week.
The residential part of treatment is only the first step to maintaining your recovery and keeping it that way requires regular participation in fellowship meetings (AA, NA, CA, OA, or SA for example). It is proven that people who continue to attend these groups will maintain a much better quality of life and continue to learn the “tools” to deal with the normal traumas of life. We strongly recommend that you attend a minimum of 3 fellowship meetings per week when you leave Broadway Lodge.
Sometimes we need non-judgmental support from a professional who we can confide in to hep us better understand our feelings, thoughts, emotions and behaviours. If you’re in recovery from addiction, engaging with one of our highly experienced counsellors in one to one counselling sessions can help to guide you through your recovery journey and help you to navigate challenges in life.
