Treatment Referral Process


How to refer your patient to one of our rehabilitation services

Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery values its relationships with physicians and other drug and alcohol treatment professionals serving people in our community. To simplify the process of referring someone to one of our rehab therapy programs, please have your patient sign a Release of Information form before they are admitted.  Fax the completed form to our Customer Service Representatives in the Admissions department at 810-227-2029.

At Brighton, once admitted, each patient is assigned a substance abuse therapist who manages his or her therapy program. Once we have a signed release, a Brighton therapist will keep you apprised of the program status of our mutual patient as the substance abuse assessment is completed and treatment progresses. We would also like to work with you to create a coordinated, comprehensive plan for aftercare.  

If a patient has not completed a release, or has revoked an existing release, we will not be able to provide any information regarding his or her progress in  treatment. We will, however, make every effort to obtain a release and to have the therapist contact you.
If you would like to refer a patient and you have questions about the referral process, or if you need more information about our treatment programs, please call 888-215-2700 or 810-227-1211.

Refer with confidence

Eric N. Coffman, DO, a referring physician to rehab therapy at Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery, has this to say about both your role and ours: “I may be able to manage the patient medically, but it also takes someone else to teach this chronically ill person how to get through his day without using drugs or alcohol. When a patient’s needs suggest a longer length of inpatient stay and a highly structured treatment program, I look toward Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery with confidence.”
