Signs of potential alcohol or substance use disorder

Are you or a loved one at risk for alcohol or drug addiction? Answer these simple questions to find out:

  1. Have you ever felt that you should cut down your alcohol or drug use?
  2. Have other people criticized your alcohol or drug use?
  3. Have you ever felt bad about your alcohol or drug use?
  4. Have you ever had a drink or used drugs first thing in the morning?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you or your loved one may be at risk for alcohol or substance use disorder.

Treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders

Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery provides treatment programs for patients 18 years and older. We also have inclusive recovery options that offer both family and spiritual support. Treatment programs include:


Continued connection program (CCP)

A care team coordinates every part of your treatment throughout the first year of recovery. This program helps you with outpatient therapy, recovery groups, monitoring and medical care. Your care team will work with you and your circle of support to promote stability in early recovery.


Detoxification unit

In the detoxification unit, we help to detox your system of alcohol and other substances. Your care team may use medications to help manage your symptoms during your stay. Medical detoxification is the first step of your recovery. After detox is completed, you may move on to other programs and create a long-term treatment plan.


Circle of support

When a support network gets involved in the recovery process, it builds a strong system that helps their loved one. This program includes talks, discussion groups, and one-on-one sessions for questions and concerns.


Health professional recovery program (HRRP)

Healthcare professionals who deal with trauma on a regular basis may be at higher risk for drug and alcohol issues. Many of our specialists are still in recovery. We understand you and are dedicated to helping others reach recovery. From our personal experiences, we listen to understand you and deliver compassionate care.


Inpatient rehabilitation 

This program is for those who are unable to meet their recovery goals in their current environment, or have medical or psychiatric conditions that need a higher level of care. Inpatient rehabilitation may also be recommended if a patient has not been successful at a lower level of care.


Lifelong recovery

Continued treatment after hospitalization is an important part of your recovery. You are less likely to return to use if you maintain regular outpatient appointments after hospitalization. This includes attending recovery support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and other treatment programs. You may also choose to have a sponsor for additional encouragement and support.


Outpatient treatment

Outpatient care includes individual and group counseling, educational sessions and medical and psychiatric care. Our goal is to help patients while they still live at home, work their jobs and perform other tasks.
