Why Brighton Center for Recovery

Amy P.

“I did alcohol and marijuana at age 16.  By the time I hit legal drinking age I was an alcoholic.  Then I went on to prescription pain medication, then heroin.  I was completely self-destructive before seeking treatment at Brighton Center for Recovery.  The staff taught me what I needed to do to recover.  I learned that recovery isn’t just about getting clean, it’s also about having to change your life.  I had to disconnect with my so-called friends.  I finally got cleaned up after splitting with my ex-husband.”

“I was disconnected from my family for about 10 years until I received treatment.  Now a week doesn’t go by when I don’t see them.  I’ve completely changed my behavior and have many goals now — hope is back in my life.  I want to go back to school and pass on what I’ve learned by working in rehab and counseling.  I want to live now.”

Amy’s is an all too familiar and heartbreaking story.  However, it is a story that has a positive outcome.  She sought addiction treatment help and is now living a sober lifestyle.  Amy is just one of the thousands of success stories from Brighton Center for Recovery.
