“BrightView understands from decades of research that improving lives one patient at a time creates positive trends across the community,” said Keitha Siler, Community Outreach manager.
BrightView health providers treatment substance use disorders and alcohol use disorder. BrightView’s approach to treatment includes medication-assisted treatment, counseling, therapy, and social support. The center also partners with job readiness programs and other local agencies to help patients find steady employment.
“Building partnerships with southwestern Ohio medical providers and justice system professionals is also crucial in developing continuity of care. BrightView’s goal is to ensure anyone with the disease of substance use disorder can achieve long term recovery,” Siler said.
BrightView accepts walk-in patients, Siler said, and they often begin treatment the same day.
“We provide treatment on demand,” Siler said. “Everyone that walks through our doors starts their recovery day one. There’s no waiting list ever.”
For patients in withdrawal, it takes fewer than four hours for them to receive stabilizing medication and complete their first counseling session.
