Codependency is regarded as a controversial concept but it’s one that we recognise and have seen in previous situations.
It can be difficult to understand and the diagnosis varies but we see it usually as where one person is addicted to a drug and the second person supports and is dependent on the others’ behaviour in the addicted state. This can be very dangerous to both parties and lead to a downward spiral to poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility or under-achievement.
We help people, normally those who are a relative or close to somebody with an addiction, understand how their behaviours affect themselves and the individual with addiction and provide the techniques to enable them to move forward.
Broadway Lodge is the most experienced rehabilitation centre in the UK using the 12 Step philosophy to support people into recovery from alcohol, as well as drugs and addictive behaviours including sex, gambling, gaming and codependency. Every day at Broadway Lodge we provide group therapy, regular one to one counselling, lectures, workshops, assignments and holistic therapies such as Reiki, acupuncture and massage, giving you the best stay possible particularly if you may feel anxious or overwhelmed at times.
As well as treatment primarily for addiction and addictive behaviours, we can support those who have a dual diagnosis where another condition co-exists alongside their addiction such as an eating disorder, anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder (BPD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Our 24 hour, 7 days a week multidisciplinary medical team consists of Doctors, Nurse Prescribers, Nurses, Auxiliary Nurses, Consultant Psychiatrists, Health Care Assistants and Support Assistants, all of whom are addiction specialists.
