ABOUT BRIGHTON RECOVERY CENTER FOR WOMEN
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.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
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.
