In our view, Addiction is a disease, a brain disorder and not a lifestyle choice which can have a negative impact on the addict's physical, psychological and emotional health. Addiction occurs when an individual has a strong or harmful need to take a substance or undertake an activity.
In our experience the psychological part of addiction is a form of self medication which can sometimes be linked to an underlying traumatic experience, emotional stress or mental health disorder. This can lead to out of character, risky, harmful and criminal behaviours where the individual becomes selfish in their pursuit of the addictive substance or activity.
Although addiction is a chronic, relapsing condition, it can be treated successfully and through our 40 years of treating addicts, we know that long term recovery is achievable.
Why Choose Broadway?
The treatment approach is client centred and based on a modified Minnesota Model with abstinence as its core aim and employing the 12 Steps of the AA/NA Fellowship.
Addiction is considered in terms of a primary illness with physical, mental and spiritual (relationship) symptoms. Each of these is treated in a multi-dimensional approach with the aim of responding to the whole person rather than their individual parts. People come to be treated because they are ill and not because they are bad or weak.
Therapy is based on individual and group work and this aspect of treatment employs an integrative approach where Motivational Interviewing, an Inter-Personal Model of group work and a range of counselling models are combined. Every attempt is made to provide a treatment process that balances support and challenge, as we believe that this will provide the best medium for change and one of the greatest assets in this process is the peer group.
