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 abuse and co-occurring disorders. The facility in Madison, Ala., located 10 miles from the Huntsville International Airport, offers residential treatment programming for adults and adolescents ages 13 to 18. According to the facility’s website, the adolescent program also includes a period of monitored detoxification. Additional services, including outpatient treatment programs and continuing care, are available through Bradford’s other locations.

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. Family is a core component of Bradford’s approach, and loved ones are encouraged to participate in the recovery process. Clients 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 groups, one-on-one sessions, and within adventure-based settings. Family members are also encouraged to participate in the center’s educational workshops, meetings, and therapy sessions. Additionally, certified educators are available to help clients who are still enrolled in school.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The Madison facility is set in a private, wooded location. The residence is modestly furnished, and most clients share bedrooms. The eight alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave the center’s level of cleanliness an average rating of 4.25 out of five stars.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Alumni polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided mixed reviews. When asked how likely they were to recommend the Madison facility to others, the eight survey respondents provided a rating of 3.63 out of five stars. Like the facility’s cleanliness, the program’s level of family participation received a relatively high rating of 4.13 stars. “I thought that family participation was a beneficial attribute of the facility; however, they need to offer more holistic offerings,” one anonymous reviewer wrote. The staff’s level of training and experience also received a high rating of four stars, but alumni review commentary regarding the center’s staff varied significantly. Some respondents described staff as “rude” and disrespectful, and others praised the “Good facility and staff.”

The center’s exercise and leisure options received an above-average rating of 3.25 stars, despite some alumni complaints about “Little to no exercise.” The center’s holistic offerings and its counseling options received lower ratings of two and 2.88 stars, respectively. Multiple alumni expressed appreciation for the center’s small group sessions, but some felt that 12-step methodology alone was insufficient.

The center’s affordability received an average rating of three stars, yet multiple respondents expressed frustration with what they perceived as a focus on money. “I am dissapointed that they are all about money and wont help u unless you cough up about 30k so never will i use there services again,” B.B. told Best-rehabs.com.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The two loved ones polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing shared differing perspectives. B.B. gave the facility five out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness. “My child was treated here for substance abuse and benefitted very much from the program,” they wrote. An anonymous loved one told Best-rehabs.com that they were unlikely to recommend the facility to others, citing “individual counseling” as one of the program’s weaknesses.

WHAT STAFF SAY

The two staff members surveyed by Best-rehabs.com to date noted that they would recommend the facility to friends and family. D.O. highlighted the “great clinical support staff.” “We are always striving to better ourselves and our facility by taking extra training courses,” they wrote. R.B. was slightly more critical, noting a need for more staff training and a longer treatment duration. “Even with problems it is still the best around,” R.B. wrote.

  • They really care about the patients, and it shows in their interactions each day. There were not as many people in the facility, but the facility just opened so to be expected. I would not have any problem recommending this facility to my loved ones. The staff at Landmark are very knowledgeable about their own areas of expertise.

  • Remote Feels like camp Counselors are great No caffeine No real free time during day No exercise or swimming faculty. Doctors really don't care. Even with flaws... If you need help... GO NOW,! The food actually isn't bad. I was just irritated about no caffeine You will meet a fantastic bunch of people in your shoes. I still talk to some after eight years. You are SAFE there. The counselors are former addicts too so you will relate well

  • It was in a pretty area and the staff was nice. However, it wasn't really effective. The staff didn't know everything that was going on at all times with the patients. I think this facility could be a good choice for some people; I have heard other families with great success stories.
