About Brighton Center for Recovery

A Licensed and Certified Chemical Dependency Facility

Brighton Center for Recovery is an accredited and state-licensed chemical dependency facility.  We employ licensed and board-certified counselors, physicians, therapists and nurses who are leaders in the field of chemical dependency and addiction treatment. We are accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization which accredits and certifies more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.  Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards in drug and alcohol treatment.

We share the vision expressed by the International Nurses Society on Addictions to be a global leader in addiction nursing and we are excited to be a part of this significant work. First offered in 1989, Certified Addictions Registered Nurses (CARN) promotes the highest standards for the chemical dependency nursing practice. Certified chemical dependency nurses are recognized for their expertise and commitment in providing quality nursing care in treating alcohol and drug addictions.

Brighton Center for Recovery is proud to have a vast majority of CARN nurses who are working alongside a multi-disciplinary team of certified and licensed drug counselors, physicians and therapists. Having such a dedicated staff certified in chemical dependency is a significant asset and something that differentiates Brighton Center for Recovery from other addiction treatment facilities. It supports our commitment to clinical excellence in drug treatment, setting Brighton Center for Recovery apart from other licensed chemical dependency hospitals.

Our certified drug treatment nursing team works in conjunction with a staff of full-time, board-certified and licensed physicians, and licensed and certified drug counselors. Brighton Center for Recovery is the only licensed drug treatment center in Michigan that has 24-hour nursing staff coverage and a full-time licensed dietitian and nutrition specialist, in addition to our on-site drug treatment physicians, counselors and therapists.
