Bring patience when working with this facility! It took 10+ hours for intake process, half hour or longer to try to speak with someone via phone on each attempt; little to no interaction with staff and doctors for both our minor child and ourselves. Seems very disorganized in many ways. We received several different people calling to ask consent for the same medication. Took them 2 days to provide clothing we brought to our minor child. Changed the release date at the last minute. Not enough time to make proper arrangements with my job.
I could write a novel when it comes to my experience here at Brighton Hospital about 5 years ago. Unfortunately, it took me 6 rehab stints before I finally got sober and stayed sober. I finally got sober in June 2014 after completing about 50 days at The Wilough, Naples FL. I went to Brighton twice, Nov. 2010 and April 2011. I have mostly good comments and really give Brighton about 4 1/2 stars. I too had a tough time with the accounting department when it came to dealing with my insurance and paying out-of-pocket. I paid something like $25,000 cash for 30 days of treatment up front because this was my 4th attempt to get sober, (second time at Brighton), and I wanted to stay for 30 days without the daily fear of my insurance cutting me off and Brighton sending me packing. That is too stressful and a total waste of time and money. The first time I went through was a nightmare because I tried to use my insurance to pay for my entire stay. I called a day before I admitted myself so that I would have an idea of how long my stay would be that way I could mentally prepare myself and not worry each day during rehab about when they will discharge me. You have to be totally focused or it will not work. I had been to two other rehab facilities prior to this and had an awful experience both because the facility was sub-par and I had issues with my insurance. Basically, both rehab facilities told me what I wanted to hear just so that I would choose their facility. They told me, \"Sure, you will be able to stay for at least 15 days of impatient treatment\". Then after about 6 or 7 days, they would try pushing me out of the front door and telling me that my insurance would only pay for a weeks worth of treatment. When dealing with your addiction and trying to get sober, the last thing any addict wants to deal with is more financial crap. Most of us are in debt up to our ears as it is. Fortunately and unfortunately for me, I won the Michigan lottery in 2011 and was able to pay cash for my 30 day stay at Brighton. I say unfortunately because, the day I cashed in my lottery check, was the start of a total and complete drug induced nightmare. Between Jan. 2011 and June, 2011, I had spent well over 300K on drugs, shopping sprees, people who I thought were friends, etc. Sorry, I got off track there. The main point I\'m trying to make to potential patients is the following: ALWAYS, get confirmation not only from the manager in accounting at the rehab but also, confirm everything about your stay with your insurance provider. I know that the last thing you want to do is sit on the phone with an insurance agent while you are sicker than hell but trust me, it could be the difference between getting your moneys worth and getting sober or a total waste. Besides all of this, I loved Brighton Hospital. I loved the staff, the facility, and the food was really good. I do see where some people have the impression that Brighton Hospital is only in it for the money but thats not really true. Lets face it, its a business and there are a lot of politics involved but overall, the majority really do want to see people get better. They do have to deal with some pretty colorful personalities when it comes to addicts. I read something about drug sniffing dogs, is this true?? Key points: 1) Always confirm with insurance prior to admission. 2) Not a Dual-Diagnosis center. Mostly focused on addiction. You will see a Psych for about 15 minutes twice during your stay. Its mandatory, insurance requires a psych review in order to approve payment for treatment, look it up. 3) Very comfortable detox which included Suboxone for opiate withdrawal. They do taper you off after about 5 days. Some places believe in long term Suboxone use, this place does not. Unless changes have been made since my stay in 2011. Suboxone is a slippery slope, not enough room to address that issue. 4) I do highly recommend Brighton Hospital to anyone in southeast MI. Just do your homework before you decide that this place is right for you. 5) Rehab will NEVER work until you are ready to stop the madness. Trust me, if anyone tells you different, that person is still in denial. Anyone can stop, you have to want it more than anything and you will be successful. It is a disease but its controllable.
So greatful I came to BDR for my recovery. The staff is EXCELLENT and they are what makes this place so amazing.
