Who We Are
We aren’t your typical “drug rehab” program. In fact, at BrightView, we don’t even use the term “rehab program.” We are a comprehensive addiction treatment center in Akron, Ohio that provides outpatient treatment to patients battling drug or alcohol addiction. Our treatment approach for these diseases is effective because it is evidence-based. We include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), individual counseling, group therapy, social service support, as well as work on co-occurring disorders. We utilize an individualized approach in our treatment options to meet patients where they are. For those seeking drug treatment for something such as opiate addiction, we primarily prescribe buprenorphine, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), and naltrexone (Vivitrol). We do not currently prescribe methadone, but we have helped many patients transition from methadone to another medication during substance abuse treatment.
Our outpatient treatment program enables our staff to develop a unique treatment plan that works with each patient’s daily life, so they maintain their regular commitments and individual needs. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most forms of insurance to make sure that this recovery program is available to anyone battling the disease of addiction and wants to receive our treatment services. We have caring staff who answer the phone 24-hour per day. A toll-free phone number is provided for the convenience of our patients.
Our Akron, OH treatment facility accepts walk-ins on weekdays until 3:00 pm. We are conveniently located North Main Street at the intersection of East Burns Ave. If you or a loved one needs help, we encourage you to call or visit.
BrightView’s compassionate and professional staff create an accessible and welcoming environment for both physical and emotional healing. We are about respect for each patient, positive reinforcement, and long-term wellness. If you are looking for recovery center, we encourage you to take the first step in contacting us today.
Medication-Assisted TreatmentWe provide safe withdrawal medication and a management plan to help ease your physical cravings so you can focus on recovery. Common medications prescribed include buprenorphine, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), and naltrexone (Vivitrol). Addiction medicine research indicates that combining medication, individual counseling, group therapy, and social support provides the best chances for long-term recovery.
Individual CounselingOur individual counseling will help you make progress toward your goals and identify plans for healing and recovery. Our fully credentialed counselors are specially trained to help patients process challenging emotional experiences related to addiction including trauma, grief, anxiety, anger, guilt, shame, and others. Your dedicated individual therapist will work together with you in an understanding, collaborative manner to develop personalized treatment goals. This step ensures that your treatment timeline and intensity is matched to your unique history and needs. These are critical steps in overcoming the disease of addiction.
Group TherapyWe understand that the idea of group therapy may seem intimidating or overwhelming to some. Addiction impacts every area of a person’s life, including their relationships. So we encourage participation in group therapy to help you accomplish your goals and start feeling better faster. Our group counseling gives you time to share your thoughts and feelings about recovery in a supportive environment with others on a similar journey. Group participants heal relationally by asking questions and receiving encouraging feedback from others with similar experiences.
Case ManagementOur case managers can help minimize barriers with you to help you stay focused on recovery. Common support provided includes assistance with organizing transportation, housing, food stamps, employment, child support, Medicaid, even legal and/or court issues. Your Case Manager will assess your situation and advocate for you, coordinate your overall care, take care of any insurance issues, connect you to additional services as needed, and help you manage any crises that come up along the way.
Social SupportRecovery is more than just stopping substance use. We understand that it can be overwhelming to try to handle all of this yourself, so we’ll help you take it one step at a time by building a supportive community around you. We understand what you are going through. Recovery is challenging, and our team works hard to help minimize barriers and empower you to continue progressing on your journey of healing.
