Alcohol addiction is one of the most common addictions in the UK and can be one of the most destructive too. No one wants to be in that situation but at times it can feel like the only way. We know what it’s like. We know it’s a very difficult cycle to get out of. But we also know there are ways to break free from it and get your life back.
We understand that rehabilitation wasn’t somewhere you were hoping to be when you were growing up. But making the step forward to a fulfilling, addiction-free life is nothing to be ashamed of. We’re here to support you whatever your story.
Broadway Lodge is the most experienced rehabilitation centre in the UK using the 12 Step philosophy as a framework to support people into recovery from alcohol, as well as drugs and addictive behaviours including sex, gambling, gaming and codependency.
If you are physically dependant on alcohol you will probably require a detoxification at the beginning of treatment in order to safely become abstinent.
Whilst the thought of detoxification may seem frightening, it needn’t be. Our specialist medical team are here 24 hours a day, every day, so that the detoxification can be closely supervised from start to finish, ensuring you’re as comfortable as possible. Our medical clinicians include Consultant Psychiatrists, Nurse Prescribers, Mental Health Nurses, General Nurses and Health Care Assistants.
During detoxification you will receive a tailored therapeutic programme which can include daily group therapy, regular one to one counselling, lectures and workshops. We also provide complementary therapies such as massage and Auricular Acupuncture to help clients to relax and to reduce any stress or anxiety.
Once the detoxification is complete, you can integrate fully with the comprehensive therapeutic treatment programme which is where you will continue to work with our qualified therapists to address root causes of your addiction, explore other presenting issues and develop healthy coping mechanisms in a safe and supportive environment, without resorting to alcohol, drugs or harmful behaviours.
As well as treatment primarily for addiction, we can support individuals who have a dual diagnosis where another condition co-exists alongside addiction, such as an eating disorder, anxiety, depression and borderline personality disorder (BPD).
“Broadway Lodge get it right. The level of support is incredible. I feel like a different person. I don’t remember feeling like this, ever. I was never comfortable in my own skin, I wasn’t comfortable in the world. I feel a lot of comfort now…I can show up for life today and that’s quite amazing after decades of isolation and addiction.”
