BrightView Opens New Center in Columbus April 8, 2019; Seventh location brings proven outpatient addiction treatment to the region. — FOR Immediate Release — Columbus, Ohio Media Contact: Jennifer Mooney at  Jennifer.mooney@TheMooneyGroup.net BrightView provides comprehensive addiction treatment programs to those who need help the most. Since opening in 2015, BrightView has expanded throughout Ohio, recently opening in Columbus. All seven of its locations provide evidence-based addiction medicine, individual and group counseling, and support services that help patients transition from active addiction into lasting recovery. BrightView’s newest clinic is located at 4660 Roberts Road, 43228 and provides accessible, discreet outpatient addiction treatment to the region. BrightView clinicians and counselors serve patients in person six days a week and provide ongoing support that addresses the whole person.  BrightView is focused on treating addiction through biological, sociological, and psychological means. Lasting healing can only be achieved when patients feel respected in an uplifting environment.  The organization takes a positive approach to treating the disease of addiction and engaging those afflicted by it. Through a combination of medication assisted treatment (MAT), counseling, and social support, long-term recovery is possible.  All treatment programs are personalized to each patient’s history and the severity of their disease. Amy Parker, a Peer Recovery Specialist with BrightView said, “As someone who has been in recovery for seven years, I can speak to the lasting effectiveness of the programs that BrightView offers and I am excited to help bring them to Columbus. As a Peer Recovery Support Specialist, I have the opportunity to work directly with patients and to encourage and support their journey of recovery. We understand where they have been and the immense challenges that they face because we have been there before. BrightView offers hope and a healthy future in an understanding and respectful environment.” Providing this life-saving care will help to stem the growing epidemic on a local level. Overdose deaths have unfortunately continued on a dangerous trajectory in the Columbus area as reported in The Columbus Dispatch (November 2018). With an average toll amounting to 14 deaths each day, Ohio remains saddled with the nation’s second-highest rate of drug overdose deaths.  Only in West Virginia did people die from drugs at a faster pace than in Ohio last year, according to new federal figures. Ohio — which has spent $1 billion a year combating the opioid epidemic — was one of 20 states and the District of Columbia where the death toll topped the national average. “We are poised to work together to save lives and bring more hope to the Columbus area by treating addiction compassionately,” Dr. Shawn Ryan, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of BrightView, said, “We are certain that as we work with partners in the community, we will see improvements one life, one patient at a time, which will result in positive  trends. This is an outstanding community, and we look forward to helping people here achieve lasting recovery.” People or families seeking help can call BrightView at 833-510-HELP (4357) 24-hours per day, 7 days per week.  Treatment often begins the same day or next day.  Recovery starts immediately, with a full exam and assessment performed by a qualified medical staff.  Medication is used to make patients feel better quickly; medical, social, and psychological needs are all addressed.
