Admitting an alcohol or drug problem can be difficult for anyone, but it’s even harder in the military. This is one case in which the military mindset can actually be the enemy. The never-surrender, never-quit attitude that generally serves people in the military so well can also make them prone to deny any sign of personal weakness – including a drug or alcohol problem.

The military community is trained to tough it out and get the job done at virtually any and all costs. This highly focused way of life, combined with a soldier’s aura of invincibility, can make it easy to ignore a drinking or drug problem. But confronting the problem as early as possible is the best way to overcome it.

Bradford is pleased to support those in the military who help protect us. We offer services specifically designed to make acknowledgment and acceptance of a drug or alcohol problem easier so that treatment and recovery can begin right away.

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

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

  • Our residential inpatient program provides a safe, protected environment for withdrawal caused by the physical and behavioral complications associated with addiction.

  • Family members join the patient and learn about addition, the role of the family in treatment, and how the entire family can recover.

  • 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, as physical complications improve, and as emotional crises diminish.

  • Intensive outpatient treatment includes continued therapy and education on relapse prevention. Patients reside at home, and often return to work or school during the outpatient treatment process.

  • Continuing care provides long-term stability through regular monitoring and connection to the 12-Step Program, which helps recovering military personnel remain clean and sober through peer fellowship and support.
