Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery (BCR) is an abstinence-based treatment facility for chemical dependence, which does not allow patients to use marijuana for any purpose while in treatment at any level of care. If a patient’s Medical Marijuana Program Card (MMPC) was issued for the treatment of chronic nonmalignant pain, the patient will have a pain management consultation completed.
Depending on the patient’s clinical condition, the consultation will be completed prior to or during hospitalization, or arrangements will be made for the consultation to be completed as soon as possible following discharge. During hospitalization at BCR, patients will receive other types of treatment for pain management, including non-addictive medications if needed. Patients who had their MMPC issued for treatment of diagnoses other than pain will receive alternative treatment for their symptoms, including non-addictive medications
