Why Bradford?

Put simply, our hearts are in what we do. And that is to provide help, hope and healing to adults and teens wrestling with addiction. We also help their loved ones.

For 40 years, we’ve been serving, treating and healing people from across the U.S. We employ doctors, psychologists, addiction specialists and other care providers who are superb at what they do. We’re the first choice of many referring physicians. And each of our facilities is accredited by the Joint Commission.

We are so committed to your recovery that, if we cannot help you, we will recommend resources who can.


Being in-network with most major and recognized insurance providers/carriers, we are committed to helping you access our premier drug and alcohol rehab programs.

What is a typical day like?

Generally, our programs consist of six and a half days per week of structured therapy and monitored personal time. Each patient participates in group therapy, as well as individual therapy sessions. Also, family visiting hours and therapy sessions are part of many of our programs.

Based on the program, additional forms of treatment can include adventure-based therapy, spirituality group meetings, information about chemical dependency, and groups that address specific areas of recovery. Regular attendance at 12-Step meetings is required.
