The positive, responsible attitude that’s generally associated with our public servants and protectors can also make them prone to deny any sign of personal weakness – including a drug or alcohol problem.

Those in law enforcement, and all other emergency responders including fire fighters, EMTs, and paramedics, are trained to rise above adversity and work their way through difficult, traumatic, and potentially life-threatening situations. Even their families must learn to accept this responsibility without question. This highly focused way of life can make it easy to ignore a drinking or drug problem. But when such a problem does exist, confronting it as early as possible is the best way to overcome it.

Bradford offers services specifically designed to make acknowledgement and acceptance of a drug or alcohol problem easier so that treatment and recovery can begin right away.

  • All Bradford patients receive a multidisciplinary assessment to determine the need for treatment.

  • Medical detoxification and medical stabilization are provided by our medical staff 24 hours a day as needed.

  • Bradford’s residential inpatient program provides a calm, comfortable, medically supervised environment to minimize the discomfort of physical and behavioral withdrawal associated with addition.

  • Bradford provides family programs as a vital part of treatment. Family members join the patient to learn about addiction and the family’s role in recovery.

  • Patients are divided into small treatment groups headed by licensed counselors. Counseling is based on the 12-Step philosophy, and is provided through individual, group, and specialized sessions.

  • Partial hospitalization is provided as the risk of withdrawal subsides, and as physical and emotional complications improve.

  • Intensive outpatient treatment and half-day partial treatment provide continued therapy and relapse-prevention education.

  • Continuing care provides long-term stability through regular monitoring and connection to the treatment process. 12-Step programs assist recovering individuals in remaining clean and sober through peer fellowship and support.
