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
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.
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.

ABOUT BRADFORD HEALTH SERVICES – MADISON
With over 30 locations in the Southeast, Bradford Health Services offers a variety of programs for individuals struggling with substance misuse and co-occurring disorders. The facility in Madison, Ala., located 10 miles from the Huntsville International Airport, offers residential treatment for adults, young-adult women (ages 19 to 30), and adolescents (ages 13 to 18).
According to the facility’s website, the adolescent program includes a period of monitored detoxification. The facility also offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP). Additional services, including outpatient treatment programs and continuing care, are available through Bradford’s other locations, such as the one in Warrior, Ala. A 2017 SAMHSA survey indicated that 24.8 percent of rehabs in Alabama offered a program tailored to adolescents, while 31 percent offered one for adult women.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, all clients receive a comprehensive assessment to help guide the development of their individualized treatment plan. Treatment for adults is based on 12-step principles and includes individual and group therapy sessions in a structured environment. According Bradford Health's website, treatments for adults included cognitive-behavioral, trauma-informed, and experiential therapies, as well as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to address trauma.
Like adult care, programming for adolescents draws upon the 12 Steps. Additionally, therapy is conducted in small groups, one-on-one sessions, and within adventure-based settings. Family is a core component of Bradford’s approach, and loved ones are encouraged to participate in the recovery process in both the adolescent and adult programs.
According to Bradford Health Services’ website, the center’s treatment team includes physicians and qualified addiction counselors. Certified educators are also available to assist adolescent clients with school work. All of Bradford Health Services' facilities are accredited by the Joint Commission, a certification held by 18.6 percent of rehabs in Alabama.
