Covington, KY – BrightView announces the opening of its 17th outpatient addiction treatment center in Kentucky to help residents recover from substance use disorder. The center located at 1610 Madison Avenue, Covington, joins the more than 80 other BrightView facilities across Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Delaware, and Arizona providing compassionate, comprehensive outpatient treatment.
BrightView’s treatment programs include medication assisted treatment (MAT), individual and group therapy, peer support, and social services to address the full range of challenges associated with substance use disorder. Each program is customized to meet the goals and needs of the patient, ensuring the best chances of long-term success.
Effective addiction treatment is increasingly important in Kenton County. Kentucky reported an increase in overdose deaths in the fall of 2022, according to the CDC.
The new Covington center can serve virtually unlimited residents due to its outpatient model. By connecting patients to case managers and working with local agencies, BrightView also helps people find safe housing, reliable transportation, access to food, and even prepare for jobs.
“I would like to thank you for giving meaning to my life again,” said one of Kentucky’s BrightView patients. “The medical staff is very respectful, kind, and courteous. I can’t wait to see how many more people like me Brightview can help in the community.”
People or families seeking help can call BrightView at 833-510-HELP (4357) 24-hours a day, seven days a week, or schedule an appointment online at brightviewhealth.com. Treatment often begins the same day, and walk-ins are welcome until 3:00 pm on weekdays. For patients in withdrawal, it takes less than 4 hours from the time they walk through the door to receive stabilizing medication, complete their first counseling session, and begin lasting recovery.
“Taking the first step to recovery can be difficult, but the BrightView team is ready and will be there every step of the way,” said Rhonda Roper, VP of Quality Operations. “Our teams come from the communities we serve; we are proud to walk with each of our patients on their personalized journey.”
In addition to helping individuals and their families, effective outpatient addiction treatment reduces pressure on the criminal justice system and local hospitals. BrightView patients decrease time spent in jail by nearly 70% on average during their first 90 days in the outpatient program. Patients also report a 33% reduction in emergency room visits in the first three months and a 50% reduction after one year.
Founded in 2015, BrightView provides comprehensive, evidence-based outpatient addiction treatment to thousands of patients in recovery from substance use disorder throughout Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Delaware, and Arizona.
The organization’s more than 80 centers provide a practical treatment approach that includes medication assisted treatment (MAT), individual counseling, group therapy, peer support, and wraparound social services, as well as work on co-occurring disorders. Locations are generally able to dispense medication on-site, which makes treatment comfortable and convenient for patients.
BrightView’s compassionate and professional staff create an accessible and welcoming environment for physical and emotional healing. BrightView is committed to treating each patient with respect, providing positive reinforcement, and achieving long-term wellness. To learn more, please visit brightviewhealth.com.
