What is it like to live at Brighton Community Center?
When you enter treatment, you’ll be in a comprehensive program that includes individual and group therapy and other activities. The focus of your treatment will depend on your needs. It could include:
- Mental health counseling
- Psychoeducational groups
- Process groups
- Family therapy
- 12-step meetings
- Relapse prevention training
- Medical care, including prescription medication management and referrals to other medical providers if needed
- Life skills training and education
- Recreational Therapy
- Active participation in a thriving alumni community
The length of time you spend in treatment depends on your needs and goals. Most people spend 30 to 60 days in residential treatment, but some may need more time.
After graduating from residential care, patients can step down to partial hospitalization or PHP treatment. PHP treatment is five days a week and four hours a day. It can be difficult for people to transition back into life after completing residential treatment, and PHP helps do that by continuing to follow up, hold patients accountable, and continue their care.
After about four weeks of PHP, clients can transition to Intensive Out-Patient (IOP). IOP is 3 hours long and held Monday through Thursday. We hold IOP sessions in the morning and evening so that patients can choose whatever works best for their schedule. This allows clients to get back to work, school, or any other responsibilities while still having the flexibility to attend treatment. Both PHP and IOP include psychoeducational and process groups.
