Residential Detox and Therapeutic Treatment for Addiction at Broadway Lodge

We know the prospect of going to rehab can feel daunting. But as the UK’s most experienced abstinence-based addiction treatment centre, we understand addiction and how to treat it. We LOVE what we do and we are passionate about helping people to begin a new journey in recovery. Since 1974 our multi-disciplined team have helped to transform the lives of thousands of people, supporting them in their recovery from addictions to alcohol, illicit and prescription drugs, gambling, sex and gaming.

Treatments Provided

Located on the edge of Weston-Super-Mare, Broadway Lodge is a 43-bed residential abstinence-based rehab for adults offering detoxification (if required) and a structured therapeutic treatment programme which is underpinned by the 12 Steps philosophy. But that’s just one element. Our comprehensive integrated treatment schedule means that clients will be involved in so much more than solely working through the 12 Steps. For instance, there’s regular one to one counselling, daily group therapy sessions, holistic and complementary therapies and psycho-educational lectures and workshops, not to mention the 24/7 medical and peer support. Our counsellors work with clients to explore their addictive behaviours and to address their underlying causes to help them to develop healthy coping mechanisms in a safe environment and to build confidence, self-worth and self-esteem. The programme provides clients with a daily routine and enables them to improve their mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
