Brighton Recovery Center understands that your recovery is everything. If you don’t have your recovery, you have little else. We are committed to staying connected with you throughout your journey- before treatment, during treatment, and after treatment. We know that people who stay connected to the recovery community have a much higher rate of success than those who do not. Your recovery starts with you and your decision to come to treatment. Your recovery is everything at Brighton Recovery Center.
The Road to Recovery
It’s time to take back your life. Whether you are the person struggling with addiction or a very concerned family member or friend, you deserve some peace of mind. It’s been a long and arduous road and Brighton Recovery Center exists to offer the best chance of success.
The process of becoming addicted to drugs or alcohol is long and complicated. It can take years of your life, and by the time you realize that you need to take back control, the addiction has taken over in a way that makes trying to defeat it seem hopeless. The good news is that there is hope, and we can help.
If you or someone you know and love is struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues, please call or text us immediately so you can take that first step in taking back your life. That first call is the hardest. Do it.
We consider active addiction to be a terminal disease. Not only is it life threatening, but it works to terminate everything good in your life too. Brighton Recovery Center’s goal is to individualize treatment to tailor your treatment experience to your needs.
Our treatment program is heavily focused on reintegration into all aspects of your life, as it should be- healthy and sober. We base our treatment model on evidence-based practices and an intensive experiential component that offers a hands-on approach to learning and recovery.

Our goal is to help foster a community that supports long-term recovery, as well as teach individuals how to navigate the complexities of their new, sober lifestyle. We firmly believe that having fun and connecting with a larger community helps in the recovery journey.
The Alumni Program is a group that patients automatically join as they graduate from one of our levels of care. Our alumni don’t judge or focus on the past, we only care about what will be done in the future. We are all-inclusive and share the common goal of doing whatever we can to protect and nourish each other.
