Therapeutic treatment

This is where transformational change really happens! Whilst in our main therapeutic treatment programme, you are immersed into a powerful structured programme every day. With a healthy mix of challenge and support, the varied therapeutic activities and peer support during this stage are instrumental in providing you with the tools to achieve a life free from addiction.

Working with our qualified therapists, you will address root causes of your addiction, explore other presenting issues and develop healthy coping mechanisms for challenges faced. You will also gain a deep understanding of the 12 Steps.

You will have a focal counsellor throughout your stay who will meet with you on most days during the first week and regularly thereafter. At the beginning, your counsellor will work with you to establish a thorough care plan to tailor the treatment to your needs and to identify specific treatment goals.

In addition to individual one to one counselling, the programme includes daily group therapy (at least once a day), psycho-educational lectures and workshops, shares from ex-residents, assignments, therapeutic films, holistic therapies, Fellowship meetings and other well-being activities.

How long is the therapeutic treatment programme?

You can stay with us for any duration up to 24 weeks and we wouldn’t recommend a stay of less than 4 weeks. This is so you have enough time to gain a solid foundation to your recovery. If you choose Broadway Lodge for your addiction treatment, we can work together to agree the optimum package of support following a personalised assessment during the application stage.

Our weekly Aftercare programme is available to all clients for an unlimited time following treatment.

Family involvement

Family members and friends are encouraged, where appropriate, to be involved in the client’s recovery process as these relationships may be central to the quality and availability of post-treatment support.  In addition, family members may be encouraged to fill in questionnaires and to attend a Family Conference to help explore the consequences of addiction and consider hopes for the future.

Visits normally take place on Sunday afternoons from 2pm-4pm and on selected Sunday’s throughout the year, we hold Family Programme sessions which are led by a counsellor in a small group setting specifically to support and educate people who are close to somebody with addiction.

Please Note: Unfortunately, Sunday visiting and the Family Programme are paused due to coronavirus, but you can use your mobile phone at allocated times to keep in touch with friends and family.
