The staff of the Brighton Center for Recovery believes addiction is an incurable but treatable disease of mind, body and spirit. We believe treatment must address all aspects of a recovering person’s life. We believe treatment is the first step in a lifelong process of sobriety and recovery. During the recovery journey, relapse may occur; but if it does, we treat relapse as an opportunity to enhance and deepen an ongoing program of recovery. We believe addiction affects all members of an addicted person’s family and, consequently, family involvement in treatment and recovery is essential to the healing process. We believe recovery cannot be sustained in isolation but requires the ongoing support, encouragement and respect of others both in and out of the recovering community.

Reviews at a Glance
I was a patient in 2004 the treatment was very 9 years clean. After a 4 year relaspe I decided to go back to BRIGHTON HOSP. OMG! What the 'F' happen? They went from fresh foods to processed dodo. No m...
Not for anyone who is older who may require a nap. Not allowed
This place is a joke!! You what real lasting results go to a rapid detox center best money I ever spent it’s 100% safe a lot better then Brighton hospital Who what’s to sit while your drawling and...
Except for staff argument that leaving AMA would lead to failure, the treatment I received did secure my long-term recovery. If the therapist who said that could see me now, I'm clean and healthy and ...
I did not like this place . Too many people there that we sent by the courts . I scared me .
I hope things have changed since I was there in 2011 it was beyond horrible and very traumatic. They drugged u when u first came in so u wouldn’t have a seizure I refused my pills after watching a w...
THIS PLACE SAVED MY LIFE! Staff were all friendly and understanding and seemed to genuinely care about my recovery. Clean and comfortable facility. I felt safe there. Providing us with good meals and ...
Very good program, they give a lot of support. The staff on hand is wonderful & very attentive.
My daughter has been admitted only a few days, so I can�t answer the questions as I don�t know yet
Absolutely great place.
When reading some of the reviews here that seem extremely negative, keep in mind that the maturity of an active addict essentially stopped developing when they were teenagers. Because of this, when an...
Good program, not a great sleeping facility. Lectures was a strength.
it was a long time ago.location. socio-economic diversity.
Everyone there was very respectful. There was a wide range of programs available to patient's as well as family members. Great and dedicated staff. It can be very expensive.
Zero stars.. Would not wish this on my worst enemy. This review will probably be deleted as they do not recognize freedom of speech.
Nurses and some Doctors are great. Therapists, I had a good one but many others were poor. Over crowded and staff is over worked. Felt a bit like I was a prisoner the way we were treated. Was shocked ...
Seriously loved this facility when I was first admitted. Great food, great nurses and therapists. Very very helpful. I was told my insurance would only cover 12 days before admission. I got to fully s...
I was in brighton center in april of 2017. The therapists there are about the only good thing about the place. My therapist, i can honestly say she cares and really is a great therapist. She and her t...
I believe that the programs are repetitive. Boring to say the least for an addict. Rehab is suppose to be safe place to fall as well as accountability. So insurance driven. Consumer time id nil as wel...
Well I just left Brighton today at 5pm . I was treated so terribly today I couldn't believe I was at a Re Hab facility . I called about two and a half weeks ago to set up my treatment . I arrived on t...
Many of your therapists are unqualified to do what they do there, lack of knowledge of the teachings and text of basic recovery texts and programs and na/aa programs. And they are definitely lacking c...
Brighton Recovery Center is one of a kind. Dual diagnosis therapy and groups were a necessity in treating my addiction. Each and every one of their employees has played a major part in saving my life....
Great staff even down to the staff member in the gift shop No place in America can beat this staff gl to all in recovery
I demanded to see a psychiatrist or I was leaving AMA (was there voluntarily though) and I saw one that afternoon. I was very satisfied with Brighton. I\'m so glad I went there. They saved my life. I ...
Not the best place to go if you have a dual diagnosis. Not much is provided for other mental illnesses here. You can\'t 12 step your way out of an anxiety disorder or ADD. Other than that, I am ve...
I am a woman in long-term recovery because of Brighton Center for Recovery. Brighton taught me that long term recovery is possible and was definitely obtainable. I am now 29 years clean and sober from...
Do not go near this place unless you have good health insurance. They will find a way to have your insurance company deny your admittance- \"you don\'t meet the criteria\" because they want private pa...
Staff and location. Great for those who truly need the rehabilitation
Great staff and loving people. Over crowded . It was a great program.
Good staff, well organized Strict policies, guys and girls hooking up Good treatment plans, great options for transitional living and assistance in moving to three quarter houses
VERY GOOD TO TALK TO ABOUT ANYTHING...THEY REALLY HELP THOSE IN NEED
clean. pretty short stay could use to be painted instead of looking so sterile
We were here back in 2007 fallowed by 9 years of sobriety, and recently in 2016. In \'07, phenomenal! Since St. John\'s purchased it a couple years ago, not even close to being the same. I can list a ...
Admittance was good. Actually getting people clean was an issue. My loved one did not get any help from this program.
Excellent family involvement and education re: addiction, great halfway house, first facility to introduce us to Vivitrol via their newsletter (after our daughter had left). Forward thinking. Not nece...
People were good.
Clean good people but lack of doctors. Never saw a psychiatrist while I was there
one of the few in the state, long intake process, not all therapy sessions are applicable to the particular pt. This is the best place you can go because the state provides no other options and hospit...
Convenience but costly. Perfect detox for alcohol. Very large and caring staff of doctors and nurses. Beautiful exercise the facilities.
I BELIEVE IT IS VERY GOOD IN TREATING OF THOSE ON DRUGS, AND WHO HAVE DRINKING PROBLEMS, JUST THOSE TWO THINGS,
comfortable and made me feel at ease, food was too good! it was neat very cleean and the staff thayt i recall was very warm and willing to work with you and your tearms
Lots of group counseling but treat clients disrespectful. Need better after treatment plans
great staff, knowledgeable staff, nice facilities. they go by insurance coverage which is a weakness. good facility but insurance coverage gets in the way
I could write a novel when it comes to my experience here at Brighton Hospital about 5 years ago. Unfortunately, it took me 6 rehab stints before I finally got sober and stayed sober. I finally got so...
Nice grounds, fishing, hiking, golf.
Lazy, incompetent medical staff. They treat everyone like a criminal.
They are promoted as the best inpatient addiction treatment in the state. Rigid, narrow-minded staff who can only see one way - THEIR 12-step model - to recovery. When I participated on family day, i...
Counselor were a strength. Great place for recovery
If 12 Step is good for you the groups, didactics and overall treatment are very good. Aftercare plans are assisted and addressed. This is a no smoking on grounds facility. No cell or computers allowed...
Tried Maple Grove in Bloomfiled Hills twice. This time I think it was the length of time which was 14 days that seemed to make a big difference in the recovery. Other two times it was just five days...
Do NOT go to Brighton or Banyan transition house. The worst possible place to send addicts.
family visiting on weekends, workshops also
Doctors were a strength but lockdown a weakness
There are still a few people left that stay consistent with their beliefs. Unfortunately, this place now is slowly but surely getting rid of these ppeopl when they see the opportunity. Managed by peop...
Compassion. Need to get beyond the addiction to the cause better. Since most of the staff are recovered addicts it is very comfortable.
My loved one did not get any help from this program.
Excellent family involvement and education re: addiction, great halfway house, first facility to introduce us to Vivitrol via their newsletter (after our daughter had left). Foreward thinking. Not nec...

Perfect detox for alcohol. Very large and caring staff of doctors and nurses. Beautiful exercise the facilities.
I DID SEE ,SO MANY WHO WERE REALLY IN NEED OF HELP ,THAT I THINK THEY DID JUST THAT. NOT READY FOR OTHER PROBLEMS, JUSE DRUGS AND DRINKING I BELIEVE IT IS VERY GOOD IN TREATING OF THOSE ON DRUGS, AND...

Lots of group counseling. Treat clients disrespectful. Need better after treatment plans
Great staff, knowledgeable staff, nice facilities. They go by insurance coverage good facility but insurance coverage gets in the way
Please research the success rate of any 12-step program before going to Brighton. You will be shocked that they fall into the lower single digits. Look around, they do not advertise their success ra...
Hopefully, this review will help break the veil of communication rules that are semi-intentional at Brighton. Detailed information on contact with the admitted is attached, as I\'ve found it frustrati...
I am a friend of someone there. Can I visit him? He has called. I missed his call. Thank you.
If you have a dual diagnosis do not go to Brighton. Such as, depression, anxiety, ADD, PTSD. They will not address these issues. You talk with a therapist, spill your guts out and they send you off to...
I highly recommend Brighton! Best medically supervised detox I know of. Perfect detox for alcohol. Very large and caring staff of doctors and nurses. They offered: Full Rehab (2 persons to a room, ...
Although my brother has been there multiple times, each time he leaves with a better mindset. His relapses are not to blame on the facility, but his lack of desire for help.
It was overall great facility.
It was beneficial that they had strict policies of leaving the treatment facility. However, it was very expensive and they did not give real follow-up or help after discharge.
Excellent facility. Not well advertised or known. The staff was very friendly. They did not offer good times for family to visit.
The employees were great. Just do it and follow through.
They have a good success rate. I enjoyed the experience and met my husband there. However, there was a lot of socializing which was a downfall.
There was no follow; I just feel that they could have done more.
The 12-step program and educated professionals were great. It was too expensive for individuals without insurance. It was a good facility, however there is not enough supervision within staff.
2 week stay was all that insurance would cover. Additional time in sober living was too costly to even consider. When you're out of money (insurance), they swiftly move you on your way to discharge ...
There was a nice staff. However, she relapsed weeks after being discharged. They let my mother go home weeks early because they said she was ready and shortly after coming home she relapsed.
After leaving treatment - they offer tune up programs. During the stay the counselor stays connected with family when appropriate. It was a well rounded program. However, there was not enough connecti...
The people were wonderful.
It's a hospital just for addiction. The staff are recovering addicts also which was a benefit.
There was a very friendly and supportive staff. The group and class sessions were good. However, there was a lack of exercise facilities.
Besides my sub-par interaction with what I'm sure was one weak counselor, my time and experience at brighton was otherwise exceptional, effective, and positive. 4+ years later i am still clean, havin...
A high percentage of the staff is also recovered addicts or alcoholics, which was great. The staff is awesome! They are very understanding but tough. Only negative was that men and women were roomed t...
I got sober.
I really enjoyed this facility.
I don't know what all they said and did with my son but I know he's off the H. I do think most other ppl would definitely need more than a 10 day detox. Months sometimes. It was only a 10 day fix. It ...
I'm not quite sure what to say about this treatment center. I wasn't overly impressed. At all. It was in a convenient location but they can be quite unfair and incredibly judgmental.
The location, price and counselors are good. However the support is a weakness and the staff is rude and untrained. I am working day by day to maintain my sobriety, which was attained here. The staff...
It was a very nice facility that was clean and had classes all day. However, there was not enough help for follow up after care. Your loved one has to be ready for help.
Counseling was great. Costs were covered by my parents' insurance thanks to Obama. It is kind of out and outdated.
They were very welcoming. Family involvement was a positive aspect of the facility. However, continued support was a weakness.
13 days was not enough - of course that's insurance-driven.They had poor communication with family members.
This place was highly recommended, yet it was very unprofessional. Very disappointed in Brighton. Poor programs. No structure.
They offer a "one size fits all", production line approach. There are about 100 patients in the facility at any given time, although they come and go constantly. If a patient has any special circumst...
Recommend this place to anyone needing to get clean.
Intake and the financial department were great.
Helped me get sober.
I believe for a "quick fix" or immediate gratification Brighton Rehab would be a decent choice. I feel that although treatment allowed this person to express the turmoil addiction has created they did...
Possibly rehab was not long enough or some therapy or outpatient visits should have been advised after discharge. Reverted back soon after discharge
Facility followed strict rules and encouraged family involvement. My nephew did not follow the program upon release.
I was able to participate in opener tongs and take classes myself. My niece came to live with me when she got out and has remained sober ever since. over 3 years mow
Excellent program. Caring, trained, skilled staff who never gave up on me. Entered very sick. Exited sober, still sick but had to do the rest of the work myself to become well. Brighton changed my...
One thing I found very helpful was the fact that every single employee there was in recovery. Every employee would take the time to talk to and encourage you whatever they were doing, from the head do...
Would recommend this place!
Went to out patient once I left.
Great place to recover!
Brighton Hospital saved my life. I saw many people come and go from their program against medical advice but those people did not genuinely want sobriety.I did. So, I worked their program hard and h...
Therapists and staff were very helpful and professional. Food service was less than satisfactory. Facilities was adequate. Court ordered attendees distracted those that were serious about recovery.
My son was there for alcoholism he was 21. He later relapsed due to age and not being ready. He then became a heroin addict and did get clean at another facility, clean four years now, This in my opi...
Good place to go for recovery
Set me up with group therapy for 90 days for my after care.
Our son was not there long enough and then put into halfway house which kicked him out everyday to walk the streets between 10am and 2pm. Curfew was 10pm . Not right for a drug addict. No structure, n...
