Review by Contributors


Bradford Health Services’ addiction treatment network offers a full continuum of treatment programs through its 29 separate facilities. Located 20 miles south of Nashville, Bradford Health Services of Franklin, Tenn., provides comprehensive, intensive outpatient treatment programs for adults and adolescents struggling with issues chemical dependency. The Franklin location also offers medical detoxification services on an outpatient basis.


Before beginning treatment, clients undergo an initial substance abuse assessment. Bradford Health Services also offers 24/7 intervention services and no-cost consultations to ensure outpatient treatment is an appropriate level of care. Hosting on-site 12-step meetings, the abstinence-based program is founded in 12-step philosophies and practices, and clients are expected to attend 12-step meetings, study associated literature, and become familiar with the 12-step process.

Along with 12-step involvement, Bradford Health Services of Franklin’s program includes a weekly schedule of group counseling sessions and educational classes. With a focus on relapse prevention, these sessions are tailored to address relevant issues of its clientele (adults vs. adolescents). The Franklin location also offers a supportive family program, which provides addiction education to loves ones.

Upon completion of the intensive outpatient program, clients may choose to utilize the facility’s continuing care services. Aftercare specialists introduce clients to Bradford Health Services’ alumni association, offer community resources that promote sustained sobriety, and provide ongoing monitoring.


Bradford Health Services of Franklin is accredited by the Joint Commission and employs a qualified team of intervention specialists, detox clinicians, master’s level substance abuse counselors, family and adolescent therapists, and program coordinators.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY survey data indicated former clients appreciated the effectiveness of Bradford Health Services’ program, reporting well-trained staff members, excellent groups sessions, and effective lead counselors. Staff members were also reportedly respectful and attentive to clients. An anonymous alum told “Overall a good program but needs to improve their exercise program.” In fairness, outpatient programs, due to the limited time of sessions, do not typical incorporate exercise and extracurricular activities into programming.


Friends and family polled by showed less enthusiasm for the program. Offering mostly neutral ratings for many aspects of treatment, including family involvement and staff support, loved ones cited the lack of follow-up and aftercare as particularly troubling. Linda, a parent of an adolescent client, told “Aftercare is the most important should of been explained! for the price they should make more effort to stay in contact.”
