This place is a hidden gem tucked away in the rehab world. If you want to honestly get right, this place will not only help you fly it will help you soar. I’ve been to 4 other inpatient treatment centers and this place has the right idea. It’s very homey. Pros: good relapse prevention program (out of the Staying Sober book- a must read for relapse prone clients and their families), Nexalin therapy, sand tray, psychodynamic therapy, trauma resolution, comprehensive personality test results based on Myers-Briggs (amazing; I found out a lot about my strengths and weaknesses), always see the people in charge and talk to them face to face, very accommodating, comfortable environment, incredible staff (most in recovery and they always look like they’re having fun and enjoying life- Ryan, Brad, Tania, Kim, Marty, Jodi), balanced groups, variety of different meetings, they respect couples (I was here with my boyfriend and it was really cool), you can ask for the food you like to be ordered (Shalese, the woman behind the nutrition groups, works with you), vitamin drip (tells you what vitamins you’re deficient in through a blood test, and supplies them to you via IV), pet-friendly, comfortable detox (the detox is a house, not a center), soft blankets, Hulu/Netflix. Cons: staff can sometimes get a little busy (therapist still sees you at least once a week,).
They offer things like Nexalin therapy (rare), which reduced my depression and negative outlook on life. They also do psychodynamic therapy, which includes sand tray therapy – recreating your views of life with thousands of figures, signs and emblems over a sand tray and processing what comes up. These are things most other treatments don’t have. The owners keep the house cohesive and very positive. Shaun helped me tremendously. They don’t take bullshit or fighting. They take recovery very serious. They strongly recommend a 12 step program. They don’t push any beliefs on you, however, as it is up to you to discover what truly works for you. For example, we went to a Buddhist recovery (refuge recovery) and it was such an awesome experience. I’d never been to one. A mentor/sponsor is, for the most part, required. It was really inspiring and cool to see everyone’s sponsor come over and work with them. The techs here helped me on my journey a lot and served as mentors. The panel that comes every second and third Wednesday of the month are service-oriented and I’ve seen them sit with clients for hours. Those are some good people with a good message. They helped me find my woman sponsor and it was a great fit. While I was at this place our weekend outings consisted of things like roller skating, bowling, going to the beach (such a serene beach with a good vibe) and going to an NA convention. They’ll take your input too. This place genuinely cares about you and that’s really rare. If you go here take advantage of everything they have to offer. If you want to do more work than the groups give you, they give you more material. They helped me work on my co-dependency (which I found out is rooted in shame). There’s a lot to do here, you just have to build your motivation and be patient with yourself! We don’t get better in one day.
After being at Broadway for about a month, I started to notice changes in myself. I have been to many other rehabs, but Broadway has helped me tremendously. As they continue to do. I thought I was a lost cause, a rundown drug addict, but they really made me feel at home. Broadway has helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope! I feel as though I can be myself, and the awesome staff is always paying it forward to be there for me. Giving me resolution to my emotional, physical, and spiritual difficulties. They truly care for their clients and are always willing to lend a helping hand. I cannot put it into words, but there is something about this program that just makes sense. My first day here I was unsure, nervous, and scared but that quickly changed, I was treated with the utmost respect, kindness and professionalism, and I’ll never forget the day I told myself in relief that I finally made it! I highly recommend this place if you or another family member or friend is struggling with substance abuse, give these guys a call. My appreciation goes out to Broadway Treatment Center because this place is truly one of a kind! Thank you BTC for giving me my life back!
I started using Heroin and other drugs at the age of 15. My treatment history started at age 18. I am 37 years old today. I have been in and out of treatment for 20 years and have had time in recovery as well. My longest length of sobriety was seven years. After I relapsed, I spent three years trying to get back to recovery. I went from sober living to sober living and could not get right. My girlfriend and I were living in her car and showering in sprinklers. I felt trapped, and wanted to get away from the familiar surroundings and acquaintances which reminded me of my addiction. We made several phone calls until we found Broadway Treatment Center in Southern California. When we arrived, we were met at the airport by friendly and helpful staff members. Our journey had just begun. We were admitted to a safe and beautiful environment for me to work on myself and grow. Staff at BTC are so caring, and always had my best interest at heart, even if I did not know it at the time. BTC has built me up and given me many tools to use to stay in recovery. Even when I thought I had learned everything in my past treatment and recovery experiences, they enabled me to gain a new perspective. In ending, I need to say that my gratitude for BTC transcends my behaviors and words. Love is not a strong enough emotion to describe how I feel for the staff and the entire team which makes up BTC.
With gratitude and love, I want to thank you.
I don’t know how to put into words how much gratitude, love, and respect I have for this program. Before I came here I was in a very bad place in my life. I was addicted, homeless, lost, and broken. I called many places looking for help. Broadway was the only one who did everything possible to get me the help I needed. Just speaking with Justin on the phone brought a little ray of hope into the dark and hopeless life I was living. From the moment I stepped off the plane, I was shown nothing but love. Broadway has taught me to love myself again. I have learned how to cope with life’s problems, and have been given tools to use in my everyday life. Broadway has shown me that recovery is possible. The staff, owners, and clients have shown me love that I did not even know existed. Without Broadway, I don’t know where I would be today, but with Broadway’s help I know I have a bright future ahead of me. Thank you for saving my life and showing me that we do heal. I will be forever grateful.
During the course of my life I have burned many bridges and have been to the depths of hell and back. I found myself at thirty years of age caught in the grips of addiction one more time, losing another job, running from parental duties, not to mention robbing and stealing from everyone I came into contact with. I knew it was going to be prison or death if I didn’t get the help I needed. In the midst, I found Broadway Treatment Center. The staff was inviting, truly cared about my well being, and told me that they would help if I was ready. Since that day, they have been here for me through everything since that day. My journey with Broadway Treatment Center has been the biggest blessing in my life.
The staff and clients at Broadway understood me, didn’t judge me, and gave me a sense of belonging. The classes they offered taught me valuable life lessons such as how to be honest, compassionate, responsible, and trustworthy. I have been given the opportunity to have a life again and I get the privilege to help others who struggle just as I did. Broadway went above and beyond to give me individualized care and support. That support led to me being able to be a part of my daughter’s life again, being a part of my family again, living in my own apartment, paying my own bills, and sharing my experience with the new people that come into our center. I have almost a year of being sober and the foundation to my life was built by Broadway.
Broadway Treatment Center was the first place throughout my entire life I could truly relate to others who also struggled with addiction. At first I was hesitant, but after I surrendered I became willing to try and live through someone else’s instruction. During my stay I was introduced to Alcoholics Anonymous. I learned a new way of life through Intensive Outpatient classes taught by outstanding counselors. I am proud to have grown into the person I am today and I thank Broadway for taking my hand and making me recognize my worth. I have accumulated a year of sobriety and the ongoing support that this company continues to show is indescribable. I am grateful for my life today.
Before I came to Broadway Treatment Center I was a lost and broken individual going down the wrong path to nowhere. During my 90 days in the program I gained my confidence and self-respect back, and also got serious about a passion of mine. Now I can say I am ready to be a fully functional member of society and have an impact on the world. I am now an employee for BTC as the chef with plans to go to culinary school.
During my stay, I took all of the instruction and criticism I could receive. I took advantage of the staff and talked to them, did one on ones, used up every minute I could force out. The counselors blew me away, the groups were phenomenal. I have always been the black sheep and argumentative rebel. No one understood my gypsy-like mentality. Always running, adventuring, never being tied down to one place. Independent. Broadway broke that. I became vulnerable. I got to talk about my demons and not be punished. I was understood. I was loved until I could love myself. These people believed in me. I became an investment.
With a little bit of surrender and willingness, Broadway taught me to live responsibly as a man of character, accountability, and integrity. I learned to live life on life’s terms. Broadway provided me with the knowledge, coping skills, and foundation necessary to live a life free of drugs. They showed me not only how to love myself but to love others as well. The staff at BTC were extremely nice, loving, and understanding. It stands apart from every other rehab I have been too.
When I first came to Broadway I found every reason why staying clean wouldn’t work. I didn’t care who I was hurting, I tried to prove I knew what was best. We were kicked out, went home, and relapsed. After the relapse, I could finally see my life clearly. God gave us a spiritual awakening. We called Broadway and begged to come back and they let us. They always saw the best in people. The plan was to complete the program and move on with our lives. Instead, I found hope. The love and compassion the staff showed me felt abnormal. I can’t express how grateful I am for Broadway helping me build and save my life.
I was lost and did not know where to turn, but Broadway accepted me with open arms. I came in as a man with no direction, and my life was in a state of emergency. I completely demoralized myself and could not live on life’s terms. Broadway Treatment Center quickly changed the way I thought and acted. I would not be where I am today without the help I received from this wonderful facility. I will forever be in debt to the staff members who never gave up on me when I was struggling. I thank God every day for this program and how it saved my life.
