”"Brighton Community Center is built upon a simple yet profound and healing concept: connection. Brighton Community Center will provide a space where residents will be connected to resources, receive top-notch, evidenced-based clinical care, and begin to lay the foundation for a new and exciting life."Zach Bunnel, LCSW, Executive Director of Community Services, BCC
Brighton Community Center (BCC) is designed to address the pervasive issues of recovery in ways that have not existed in Utah until now. BCC is a 50-bed, co-ed (with gender-specific quarters), sober living and outpatient treatment program, modeled on a hybrid structure of staff and resident-run programming. The property is fully staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Staff is responsible for supervising the accountability of the residents’ levels of treatment and reintegration-focused aftercare. The residents are responsible for earning a place in the community system of the BCC campus, with promotions available as house leaders, co-leaders, and various other positions within the center’s economy. Leadership training is the building block of the mentor system.
BCC also houses a fully-functioning recreation center, which includes a coffee shop, yoga studio, fully-equipped gym, music room, thrift shop, and jobs/school placement office, all run by the internal community and overseen by staff. Residents that do not already have a job will learn marketable skills that are directly transferable to the real-world working environment. The BCC team works with local businesses and community partners to help individuals get back to work, successfully moving the reintegration process forward.
Treatment is separate from housing. The continuum of care in treatment offers step-down levels from Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP), and General Outpatient Treatment. Each resident will follow a personalized path through the appropriate levels of care. Day Treatment is offered five days a week for six hours per day, and can last for 2-4 weeks. It includes individual therapy, family therapy and medication management during medical provider visits. IOP is run four days a week for three hours, and lasts 2-3 months. BCC offers multiple group times to accommodate almost any work, school, or service schedule. BCC also offers general outpatient individual therapy for those in IOP that need additional support. Most residents of BCC will be in some level of treatment. BCC also supports treatment for non-residents who desire direct outpatient care.
BCC offers a one-year monitoring program for each person that completes our program and remains in Utah, at no additional cost. This monitoring program includes accountability measures such as: continued urine analysis (not billed to insurance); scheduled appointments on campus; providing proof of outside 12-step meeting attendance; continued connection with the internal community; and reports of how they are meeting expectations relative to occupation, education, and/or service involvement.
The Brighton Alumni community manages the mentoring program at BCC. As our residents move up in the level system and in the internal community standing, they take on the roles of mentoring newer residents. The mentor relationship at BCC is similar to the sponsor-sponsee dynamic of the 12-step programs. The assignment of a mentor for each individual resident is done with careful consideration and the best relational fit in mind. Of course, assigned mentors are always gender-specific.
