Brighton Recovery Center for Women

375 Weaver Road, Florence, Kentucky, 41042
Nobody wakes up one day and decides to become addicted to drugs. It usually happens slowly and insidiously, to the point that people don’t realize they are becoming addicted. Women are the fastest-growing segment of substance abusers in the United States: about 2.7 million American women abuse alcohol or drugs according to the Federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. The Brighton Recovery Center for Women is a part of the Recovery Kentucky network and is one of ten centers in the state that were instituted to help end chronic homelessness and combat substance abuse.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Located in Florence, Ky., just 20 minutes from Cincinnati, Brighton Recovery Center for Women provides long-term residential substance misuse treatment to women struggling with addiction. To be considered eligible to attend the program, a woman must be at least 18 years old, be struggling with a drug addiction, come from a homeless or low-income background, be able to walk up to three miles a day, and be medically and psychologically stable. According to a 2018 SAMHSA survey, 40 percent of rehabs in Kentucky offer a program specifically tailored to adult women.


The program offers a peer-driven model of recovery and applies a holistic approach to treatment. According to the facility’s website there are four distinct stages to treatment.

The program starts with Safe off the Streets (SOS), a safe, non-medical environment that allows for the women to begin creating their plan to recovery. After SOS, Motivational Tracks provides women with a low-pressure environment where they can commit to the process of recovery.

Phase 1 focuses on building fundamental life skills such as economic independence and social wellness, with the ultimate goal of recovery in mind. Phase 2 reintegrates women back into society by helping them find employment, pay rent, attend self-help meetings, and work on maintaining sobriety. According to a 2018 SAMHSA survey, 42.8 percent of rehabs in Kentucky offer employment counseling or training for clients.

Brighton also facilities work opportunities through Center Table where Phase 1 and Phase 2 clients may work to gain culinary skills.


There is currently no information provided on the facility's website or otherwise regarding its treatment staff. However, two individuals surveyed by Rehabs.com on the staff's experience gave three and four stars out of five, respectively.

The sole alum that submitted a review to Rehabs.com, T.B., said that Brighton Recovery Center for Women is "a great facility to work on yourself and find out who you really are and want you want in life." T.B. gave four out of five stars for treatment effectiveness; yet, in regards to the staff support, she noted that there is "no help for mental health."

The facility’s Facebook page, which the facility may manage, paints a different picture, however. Alumni gave extremely positive feedback. Based on 27 ratings to date, the center has an almost perfect rating of 4.5 out of five stars.[1] Alum Billie claimed that the center has given her “a whole new world,” adding: “I would recommend it to anyone who is fighting addiction.”


The two Rehabs.com reviews received to date from affiliated loved ones, both anonymous, were mixed. One reviewer listed the facilities as a weakness, while the other reviewer disagreed, giving five stars for cleanliness as well as accommodations and amenities. The latter reviewer also wrote that "the counseling and staff support was great."


There is currently no information provided on the facility’s website or otherwise regarding its costs. However, an individual surveyed by Rehabs.com rated the affordability four out of five stars.
