Who We Are
BrightView is not your typical “drug rehab” program. In fact, if you visit our Lowell treatment center, you won’t hear the term “rehab program” at all. That’s because BrightView is a comprehensive addiction treatment center. We provide outpatient treatment and care for patients who are battling drug or alcohol addiction. Our evidence-based approach is effective and incorporates medication for addiction treatment (MAT), along with individual counseling, group therapy, social service support, and work on co-occurring disorders. Our team takes an individualized approach with each patient, meeting them wherever they are in the recovery process. For those struggling with substance abuse such as opiate addiction, we avoid straight detox and prescribe buprenorphine, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), and naltrexone (Vivitrol). This treatment center does not prescribe methadone, but we have helped many patients transition off of methadone to another medication.
This outpatient treatment program, enables our staff to develop unique treatment plans that work with patients’ daily life, allowing them to keep up with commitments and individual needs. We want our intensive outpatient services to be available to all who need them, so we accept Medicaid, Medicare, along with most forms of private health insurance. These choices help anyone who is battling the disease of addiction to be able to seek treatment services. We a have caring staff who answers the phones 24-hour per day and we provide a toll-free phone number for your convenience. If you or a loved one have questions about our treatment options, please give us a call.
We accept walk-ins on weekdays until 3:00 pm at our Lowell treatment facility. We are located at 77 E. Merrimack St. Lowell, MA 01852.
The professional and compassionate staff at BrightView will create an accessible and welcoming environment, providing both physical and emotional health services. We believe each patient deserves respect, positive reinforcement, and long-term wellness. If you are looking for a convenient solution that is effective for both drug and alcohol treatment, 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.
