Bowling Green Brandywine gives clear recognition to the disease concept and focuses on the individual patient as a person with dignity and self-worth. Our treatment philosophy is predicated on the belief that chemical dependency is a highly treatable disease and can begin to be arrested through a multi-disciplinary treatment approach that utilizes medical, pharmacological, clinical, behavioral and 12-step interventions. Relapse prevention and discharge planning are also key components in the fight against the deadly disease of addiction.
