Inpatient treatment allows patients to be removed from their previous environments, away from any negative associations to drugs or alcohol, and allows them to avoid temptation and to focus on recovery. Patients who reside at our rehab facility receive round-the-clock care and support. At Brighton we have found that this positive atmosphere promotes a healthy transition to a clean and sober life.
Our Recovery Skills and Living Recovery Programs focus on the individual needs of patients in treatment. This specialized attention is one of the things that sets Brighton apart from other treatment facilities.
Inpatient treatment provides the essential steps in a patient’s recovery:
Detoxification (detox) is the process in which a patient’s body is safely withdrawn from the substance(s) to which it is addicted. When a person uses drugs or alcohol for a period of time, toxins build up in the body. These toxins can cause a range of health issues including death.
Freeing the body of these toxins is often the first step in substance-abuse treatment at Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery. We have a first-rate medical detox unit that helps patients through withdrawal using effective techniques and medications.
Many patients are understandably fearful of the detox process, and emotional stress is always possible during this critical time. The level of discomfort a patient might face during withdrawal can range from minor to severe. But our expert staff closely monitors symptoms in each patient and treats them accordingly, to minimize or even eliminate these effects. Patients receive round-the-clock nursing care in a comfortable and nurturing environment, and we offer specialized drug counseling and therapy to help diminish the emotional upset that may accompany withdrawal from drugs or alcohol.
Deciding what level of drug or alcohol rehab treatment you need can be difficult. That is why Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery has a professional staff that will evaluate your use history and help you determine the best course of treatment for your situation. We offer many different types of rehabilitation, ranging from inpatient treatment to intensive outpatient counseling.
Our inpatient rehab programs are recommended for people who need to be closely monitored or who are unable to achieve sobriety while living in their current environments. An inpatient program may be recommended if a patient suffers from medical or psychiatric problems or has been unable to maintain sobriety after participating in a less structured program in the past. Brighton’s rehab programs focus on group therapy, educational lectures and videos, recreational therapy, and rehabilitation counseling.
Some people may be better served by one of our outpatient programs. Through customized group counseling and educational sessions, we are able to focus on substance-abuse rehabilitation while the patient maintains employment and family life outside of the hospital setting.
Friends and Family Program Information
When the abuse of drugs or alcohol takes over a person’s life, the addict is not the only one who is hurting.
Every patient treated for substance abuse has friends and family who also suffer because of the addiction — on average, a person’s addiction also affects six to ten friends or family members. At Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery, we not only help the addicted, we also reach out to those who love them. Our Friends and Family Program is designed to help those who are faced with a loved one’s addiction.
When family and friends educate themselves about addiction and get involved in the recovery process, it builds a strong support system that helps the addict achieve and maintain a sober lifestyle. We encourage the families and friends of our patients to join us for special lectures, discussion groups, and one-on-one sessions where we can answer questions and address concerns.
Program sessions take place at our treatment center on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, from 1:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., with check-in beginning at 12:45 p.m. If guests are not present and checked in by 1 pm, they will not be allowed to attend the program or see the patient. Participation in the entire program is required.
It is important for family and friends to participate in the program, while their loved one is a patient here. We have no open visiting at Brighton, so the program allows each patient to spend time with concerned friends and family members in a supportive and learning environment. Children are welcome to attend as long as they can participate in programming.
For more information about our program for friends and families, please call our clinic at 888-215-2700 or 810-227-1211. Please remember that, due to federal laws on confidentiality, we may not be able to acknowledge the presence of your relative or friend at our treatment center.
