Bradford Health Services Philosophy
Bradford Health Services offers a wide variety of drug and alcohol treatment options at numerous locations across the country. The Madison, Alabama facility is home to Bradford’s adult residential substance abuse rehab and adolescent residential substance abuse rehab. Located less than 10 miles from the Huntsville International Airport, the facility provides clients with a safe, compassionate, and supervised environment to begin the journey of recovery. Both programs focus on healing the mind, body, and spirit via various clinical, recreational, and social therapies in a relaxing setting.
Areas of Specialization
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

ABOUT BRADFORD HEALTH SERVICES – MADISON
Bradford Health Services offers various programs for drug and alcohol addiction throughout 27 locations in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, and Tennessee. The facility in Madison, Ala., located 10 miles from the Huntsville International Airport, offers two residential treatment programs — one for adults and one for adolescents ages 13 to 18 — as well as outpatient programs. For those who require stabilization and assistance with withdrawal symptoms, medical detoxification services are provided on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, all clients receive a multidisciplinary assessment to help guide their individualized treatment plan.
Counseling for adults is based on 12-step principles and includes individual, group, and family sessions in a protected and supervised environment. Clients and families are encouraged to attend AA and Al-Anon meetings. Participants can also engage in adventure-based education, which challenges self-imposed limits and develops self-confidence, trust, and respect for others.
Like adult care, programming for adolescents draws upon the 12-Steps. Staff administer therapy in small group sessions and one-on-one. Family participation is a key element of treatment, and teens are also encouraged to participate in adventure programs. Additionally, certified educators are available to help clients with school.
Continuing care is available in the form of partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP) care, and continuing 12-steps meetings. The rehab also facilitates alumni charity events.
According to the facility’s website, Bradford Health Services utilizes a team approach to treatment; certified counselors and physicians work together to provide individualized care.
