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, as well as aftercare.

Bradford Health Services bases treatment on a disease model of addiction. Clients may enter the Franklin facility’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) following inpatient treatment or as a starting point for their treatment in the early stages of their chemical dependency. Several times per week, clients attend special sessions designed to treat their risk of relapse and environmental stressors. Less critical emotional stressors are also treated.

Following IOP care, both adolescent and adult clients may enroll in the Extended Care Program, an aftercare program designed to help clients address potential obstacles to sobriety, including unresolved grief or trauma, work-related issues, and others. The program treats dual diagnoses such as depression, chronic pain, and PTSD among others. Services include individual, group, and family therapy; medical management; and 12-step treatment. Group topics in extended care include chronic pain, relapse prevention, trauma recovery, grief and loss, and desensitization.
