Broadway Lodge Ltd

Broadway Lodge is a compassion-infused, abstinence-based addiction treatment centre that can accommodate up to 40 adults. Since 1974, Broadway Lodge has helped to transform the lives of more than 16,000 people, supporting them in their recovery from addiction to alcohol, illicit and prescription drugs, gambling, sex and gaming. We are one of few addiction treatment centres in the UK to offer both comprehensive therapeutic treatment and medically managed detoxification on-site.

Our experienced team of nurses and health care assistants care for patients who are detoxing 24/7, ensuring they are made as comfortable as possible throughout. Our medical team remain available for the rest of a patient’s treatment duration to support with any medical needs that may arise. This team includes Nurse Prescribers, Registered General Nurses and Mental Health Nurses and we also have a Consultant Psychiatrist that we may recommend a patient to see if appropriate. There are some therapeutic interventions during detox to enable patients to start addressing their addiction and presenting issues but the programme is reduced at this stage, as the main aim of detox is to help clients feel physically better.

The full therapeutic programme is based in the main house and delivered by a multidisciplinary team of counsellors, therapists and nurses. Clients can immerse themselves into our therapeutic programme for up to 24 weeks which is designed to enable them to understand their addiction, address underlying causes, to develop the tools for a long-term recovery and to nurture their mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

The 12 steps forms an important part of treatment that clients are guided to work through at their own pace. It is a framework that is particularly helpful for life after treatment that helps a person to sustain their recovery for the long-term. However, the 12 steps is just one element of treatment. At Broadway Lodge there are a wide range therapeutic interventions delivered in a mixture of individual and group sessions, including:

• Powerful daily group therapy (at least once each day)

• One to one counselling (on average, two per week but this can increase in response to client needs).

• Psycho-educational lectures

• Variety of creative, mindfulness, spiritual and recovery-related workshops

• Assignments to work through presenting issues

• Therapeutic films

• Relapse prevention

• Mini groups, gender groups and topic groups


• Hypnotherapy

• Auricular acupuncture

• Reiki

• Massage

• Fellowship meetings

• Ex-resident shares
