Hidden away in the Appalachian Mountains on 80 acres of land, the secluded Warrior Lodge allows clients to recover in peace. As a part of Bradford Health Services, a private healthcare company with more than 28 locations across the US, it brings affordable, dual diagnosis care to those who suffer from substance abuse. Through the use of the 12 steps and a structured therapeutic schedule, clients can find a new direction for their lives.
Accommodations and Food
Clients live in quaint cottages during their stay at the Warrior Lodge, a 188-bed, co-ed residential drug and alcohol treatment facility in a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama. Each cottage is shared between two or three people, with bedrooms featuring twin-sized beds and lots of natural light, a living room with a television and a full kitchen. While television may be watched during free time, laptops and cell phones are not permitted. Although the accommodations are modest, they provide privacy in the otherwise highly populated facility.
Residents learn to become comfortable in the kitchen during their stay. While many rehabs offer private chefs, the Warrior Lodge insists that clients prepare their meals themselves. All food items are picked up and delivered by staff members, who make weekly grocery trips for clients. For those who struggle to make tasty dishes, weekly cooking classes are available to improve culinary skills.
The grounds at the Warrior Lodge are abundant with green foliage and beautiful trees. There is a basketball court on-site but no gym. Guided yoga classes are available on a weekly basis.
Treatment and Staff
The Warrior Lodge offers a standard 28-day residential treatment program, with 60- and 90-day options available for those who can afford it. This facility offers a complimentary on-site, medically monitored detox for as long as clients need it. Once that is done, a multidisciplinary assessment is used to determine an individualized treatment plan. From there, clients receive two individual sessions per week, several hours per day of group therapy as well as life skills classes. Group topics include trauma, nutrition, triggers, codependency and communication. There is a strong emphasis on relapse prevention during both group and individual therapy.
The 12 steps are the foundation of recovery at the Warrior Lodge. Attendance at daily on-site meetings, during which clients can obtain temporary sponsorship, is required. Through sponsorship, they can gain a better understanding of the 12 steps as well as learn to communicate with and relate to other alcoholics and drug addicts.
The staff comprised of nurses, therapists, psychiatrists, social workers and medical director are all available on-site during the client’s stay.
While the Warrior Lodge does not offer a formal family program, it does have the option of family therapy. During this time, clients and family members meet with the primary therapist to work on family dynamics and communication.
The Warrior Lodge offers introduction to the 12 steps and world of recovery can be found here. With a strong emphasis on relapse prevention and a mandatory sponsorship rule, clients are given tools to deal with their addiction in the real world.
