Levels of Care

Patients with Brighton Recovery move through a series of treatment levels that provide the best possible chances for their long-term recovery. The level a patient begins at will be determined during an initial assessment with their intake coordinator. The full spectrum of treatment within Brighton’s care progresses from residential and continues through day treatment, intensive outpatient, outpatient, sober living, and the alumni program.


A Multifaceted Approach to Treating the Individual

Dual diagnosis treatment is the concept of treating mental health issues and substance use disorder issues at the same time. We view that as being very important because if you come in and seek treatment for just a substance use disorder, and you leave treatment without treating the mental health issue, the issue that was causing you to use, to self-medicate, hasn’t been treated, hasn’t been touched. So when people come to treatment at Brighton, we look at both, they’re assessed for both. And if and when it’s applicable, they’re treated for both.

Every person comes in with their own subset of issues. The addiction piece is there. Perhaps the mental health piece is there. You need to sift through their individual issues in order to treat them effectively. And when you’re multifaceted, you have a lot of different team members looking at one patient and then converging on the treatment process to ensure that this one patient is fully covered. A multifaceted approach moves us away from a one size fits all treatment environment. A lot of treatment centers out there are very focused on treating a group of people rather than the individual. And we believe that while group therapy is very important and part of our program, bringing the individual in and treating their issues specifically is more effective.

Residential Treatment

What Is Residential Treatment? Residential Treatment is defined as an inpatient program that allows you to devote all of your time and energy to the recovery process. Brighton Recovery Center is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure that each person is offered a safe environment in which to heal.

The length of stay in Residential Treatment will vary from person to person, as everyone’s circumstances are different. Typically, people choose to stay 45 – 60 days based on a number of factors including clinical appropriateness and insurance coverage. It is highly recommended that people graduating from Residential Treatment immediately engage in an outpatient program (IOP) in their area.

Additional Information

Residential Treatment Includes the Following

  • Medical monitoring and Medication Management as needed for medications and potential complications during treatment for underlying medical disorders and psychiatric diagnoses.
  • Assessment and diagnostics to identify all Biopsychosocial stressors and psychiatric issues that may impede the recovery process.
  • Individual and Family therapy sessions with licensed clinicians to assess progress and ongoing goals in treatment and consistent education and family support.
  • Group therapy that focuses on evidence-based treatment modalities, mental health issues, addiction/recovery treatment topics, and experiential paradigms (Recreation Therapy, Life Skills, and Reintegration).
  • Dual-Diagnosis Treatment for co-occurring addiction and mental health issues.
  • Recreation Therapy that teaches a therapeutic approach to alternative activities in the community and wilderness.
  • Alternative interventions that are known to reduce stress and increase effectiveness of traditional interventions (yoga, mindfulness and meditation, breath work).
  • Reintegration skills that include all topics related to reintegrating into your family, occupation, community, education and spirituality.
  • Room and board and dietician approved food and menu.
  • Private room available.
  • Fitness and nutrition built in to the program.
  • Beautiful treatment environment.
  • A team approach to aftercare planning to ensure you have an integrated discharge plan that will bolster your success and keep you connected.

Day Treatment (PHP)

Day Treatment is defined as highly supervised outpatient treatment. Day treatment curriculum will cover many tools and skills taught in residential treatment and is focused on transitioning a person through the reintegration process of going home after treatment.

These programs are medically monitored by medical personnel. A “step-down” approach to getting the person home and back into their community is highly recommended in our industry. Day Treatment programs generally run from 5 to 7 days a week for 5-8 hours per day.

Brighton Recovery Center offers Day Treatment programs at each outpatient location five days a week for 4-5 hours each day. Residential treatment is not a prerequisite to engage in our Day Treatment programs.

Day Treatment

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

IOP is defined as outpatient treatment that is part-time. Brighton Recovery Center’s IOP is located at a separate site and is designed to be a step down from a higher level of care such as residential treatment.

IOP is optimal treatment for people trying to balance their work lives and home lives, but still need a treatment environment for accountability, continued education, processing, and peer support. Most IOP meetings are held in the evenings.

Brighton Recovery Center offers IOP run by a licensed clinician both night and day. Programs are located in Salt Lake City, and South Ogden, Utah. Daily programming attendance is mandatory to remain in the program.

Recreation Therapy

Plato once said, “You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than you can in a lifetime of conversation”. It is on this foundation that Recreation Therapy was built. Recreation and leisure are often the times in life when ones true character shows; how well does someone deal with adversity? How do they interact with others? How do they connect with the world at large? All of these questions and more can be answered through Recreation Therapy.

What insurances do you accept?

We work closely with most insurance companies and can quickly run your insurance information to determine what will be covered by your provider.

How long is your residential program?

Our residential program typically lasts for a minimum of 45 days. We have found that the longer a patient can attend treatment the higher their chances of long-term recovery. We do regular assessments to determine if a patient can stay in residential treatment or step down to a lower level of care.

Can my family visit me in treatment?

Yes! We have weekly family visitation and therapy at each of our facilities. Please call us for up-to-date information on visitation.

What happens after treatment?

After graduating from residential treatment, clients work closely with their case manager to create an individualized plan for continued treatment. Continued treatment options may include PHP, IOP, Sober-living, and our Alumni program.

Will I see a doctor during my residential treatment?

Yes. Every patient sees a medical professional at least once a week while in residential treatment. Brighton Recovery Center employs Addiction Medicine Dr.’s, a Psychiatrist, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, and Nurses as part of our medical team.

Each client participates in 2 individual and 1 family therapy session per week. These sessions may include trauma-informed, EMDR, CBT, ACT, and other evidence-based modalities.

Yes, weekly family therapy is offered to all of our clients and is a key factor in their overall success.

Brighton Recovery saved our son’s life. We couldn’t be happier about the program, the classes, and the therapists. Brighton had the best treatment to help our son with his addiction. The two days of family training were also helpful in educating us so we could be better prepared to help in the long-term recovery help…We will forever be grateful to this wonderful program, with such a committed staff that truly cares! Thank you Brighton and staff for teaching us all about addiction recovery!

I can't say enough good things about Brighton Recovery. The staff is excellent and the program is comprehensive and accessible. The grounds do create a space for healing and doing the very intense emotional work of beginning the recovery journey. So thankful for Brighton Recovery Center and what they've done for my son and family.

Amazing place, amazing people. They KNOW what they're doing. They treat the whole person to get to root causes of addiction. Engagement with families was terrific. Aftercare and community building is top notch. Facilities are fabulous. I love the place, and I love the people…
