Ready to take the next step?

Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery is a leader in addiction treatment programs for teenagers and adults living in southeast Michigan and beyond. That's because many clinicians on our care team are in recovery themselves. They are passionate about helping people recover from their addiction and understand that you or your loved one needs a personalized and affordable program that works. At our center, we have:  

  • Treatment programs that include your family 
  • Spiritual support and quiet places for reflection
  • Recovery housing for men and women
  • A focus on good health habits and recreational activities
  • Medicare and most commercial insurances accepted

During your time with us

Our care team will work closely with you. We'll help you learn new skills so that you can stay healthy and not fall into bad habits. See what items you should bring (and leave home) during treatment. 

After you leave our care

Once treatment is over, we'll work with you to help you to get back to your daily life and stay in recovery. Also, we love to celebrate addiction recovery. Among other events, you’ll be invited to join us at “Tune Up” each May, August and November. The events have informative guest speakers, games, coining ceremonies, and time to talk with those who understand you.

Is it time to consider treatment for your drug or alcohol use?

At Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery, our care team knows that addiction is hard on you and your loved ones. It's also very personal and different for everyone, so we personalize each treatment plan to meet your needs. 

Are you or a loved one at risk for alcohol or drug addiction? Answer these four, simple questions to find out:

1. Have you ever felt that you should cut down your alcohol or drug use?
2. Have people annoyed you by criticizing your alcohol or drug use?
3. Have you ever felt bad about your alcohol or drug use?
4. Have you ever had a drink or used drugs first thing in the morning?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you or your loved one may be at risk for alcohol or drug addiction. To talk with a team member at Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery, please fill out the form below, or call

Continued connection program.

Continued Connection Program

If you've tried a recovery program in the past, but need more help, this program includes outpatient therapy, recovery groups, regular drug testing, and medical care. We'll work with you and your family to help find out the reasons behind your continued struggle with addiction.

Detoxification Unit

People who need to detox drugs out of their system stay at our center under the care of our team. If needed, we can use medications to help you through the detox symptoms.

Inpatient Rehabilitation 

This program is for people who cannot become sober while in their current living environment, or may have medical or psychiatric conditions that need a higher level of care. Rehabilitation may also be recommended if a patient has not been successful at a lower level of care.

Partial Day Program

This program is similar to the inpatient program, but patients go home at the end of the day so that they can immediately work on their recovery skills. Patients have weekly individual sessions, group therapy, educational lectures, and family support.

Friends and Family

When family and friends educate themselves about addiction and get involved in the recovery process, it builds a strong support system that helps their loved one. This program includes talks, discussion groups, and one-on-one sessions for questions and concerns.

Outpatient Treatment

Our outpatient services include group counseling and educational sessions to help patients while they still continue to live at home and work at their job.

Health Professionals Program

We understand that healthcare professionals who deal with trauma as part of their profession may even be at higher risk for drug and alcohol issues. Many of our drug-treatment clinicians are in recovery themselves and are dedicated to meeting the needs of their fellow professionals through this program. From our personal experiences, we understand how to do so.

Children's Addiction Prevention Program

The Children’s Addiction Prevention Program at Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery is a free educational, healing, and addiction-prevention program for children 7 to 12 years of age. It is designed for children who have been directly affected by the drug or alcohol addiction of a family member or other loved one.

Lifelong Recovery

We know that without follow-up treatment, it is easy to fall back into the destructive patterns of substance abuse. People are less likely to relapse if they maintain regular post-rehab appointments; attend addiction support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and other 12-step programs; and obtain a sponsor for continued encouragement.

Personalized inpatient treatment options

At Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery, we listen to you, so we can provide the care that's right for you. We have a variety of programs that you can enjoy while receiving inpatient treatment, including:

Art Therapy: Ascension Brighton’s Art Therapy Program provides a visual and kinesthetic means of addressing challenges related to substance dependence. Art therapy allows patients to speak symbolically about issues that may be too distressing to confront with words.
Registered Dietitian: The use and abuse of alcohol and other chemical substances frequently results in nutritional issues.  Our Registered Dietitian provides basic nutrition classes weekly.
Spiritual Care: Brighton strongly encourages each patient to seek a life-giving spiritual connection as a part of their recovery plan.  To assist with this goal, patients have access to a staff member trained in this area, who provides both group and 1-on-1 support.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or dial 9-1-1.
