Our rehab clinic in Somerset provides residential treatment, counselling and support services for alcoholism, drug addiction, eating disorders gambling and co-dependency both to individual sufferers and concerned others.
Established in 1974 the centre has helped thousands of people throughout the UK and from abroad to establish a quality recovery and live a more fulfilled life. As the first in this country to provide treatment based on the Minnesota Model, the organisation has had more experience than any other agency in the country at working with this effective programme.
In acknowledgement for having one of the best completion rates and highest standards of professional care, in 2006 the treatment programme was the first to be accredited by the European Association for the Treatment of Addiction (EATA) of which it was a founder member.

About the Clinic
Set in its own grounds on the outskirts of Somerset, the clinic boasts a 33 bed residential centre providing Primary Care with an additional 22 places in adjacent houses for those needing Secondary Care. We take the view that addiction is a biopsychosocial illness and not a problem of morals or will power. It is an illness characterised by loss of control and is progressive. Whilst the illness cannot be cured, with the correct treatment it can be arrested and sufferers are able to live a normal and fulfilled life in recovery.
The main goal of treatment at Broadway Lodge is to assist individuals in gaining a firm foothold in recovery. In most cases this will mean being abstinent from all mood altering chemicals or repeating patterns of behaviour.
In addition we aim to provide every client with the opportunity to become familiar with the Fellowship self-help groups with a view to using this for continuing support in the maintenance of a quality recovery.
The underlying goal is to help people abstain from self-defeating patterns of behaviour and replace them with new and more productive ones. In all cases clients will be encouraged to challenge thinking and attitudes adopted to perpetuate active addiction and at the same time supported in the development of new ways of dealing with life experiences and associated emotions.
