Mending lives. It's what Brighton does every day, a world renowned alcohol and drug rehabilitation center. Their multidisciplinary team of addiction recovery experts know that chemical dependency is a disease – not a weakness They know that recovery is possible based on the thousands of patients they've helped since 1950. In fact, Brighton Hospital is the the oldest alcohol and drug treatment center in the country (first established in Bloomfield Hills, MI). They are preferred by those seeking a caring and compassionate alcohol and drug rehab clinic. Many of the patients seeking an experienced, effective drug addiction rehabilitation center come from Livingston, Oakland, Wayne, Washtenaw, and Macomb counties, which encompass the Metro Detroit, Ann Arbor, Lansing, and Grand Rapids areas of Michigan (MI). Yet, they often serve patients from Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus as well. As their reputation for excellence in addiction recovery has grown, so has their helping hand. Their status as a national leader in drug rehabilitation treatment has patients coming from all around the United States as well as Ontario and Quebec, Canada. Brighton Hospital has been a patient's choice over many other highly regarded chemical dependency hospitals. The hospital provides patients with individualized programs focused on drug detox, drug rehab, alcohol treatment, substance abuse treatment, and addiction counseling. They have focused programs of 30 day residential drug treatment and outpatient drug treatment with partial hospitalization. Their licensed and certified chemical dependency counselors know that drug addiction and alcoholism do not discriminate on age, occupation or mental health status. Therefore, they also offer specialty substance abuse programs focused on the unique needs of teens and adolescents, health professionals, clergy seeking addiction recovery, men’s and women’s halfway houses, and dual diagnosis treatment (mental disorders with chemical dependency). Additionally, they also provide a free four-day children's program for kids ages 7-12 who have lived with addiction.
