Why We Do It
Nobody wakes up one day and decides to become addicted to drugs. It usually happens slowly and insidiously, to the point that people don't realize they are becoming addicted. Women are the fastest-growing segment of substance abusers in the United States: about 2.7 million American women abuse alcohol or drugs according to the Federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. The Brighton Recovery Center for Women is a part of the Recovery Kentucky network and is one of ten centers in the state that were instituted to help end chronic homelessness and combat substance abuse.
What We Do
This 100 bed facility located in Boone County utilizes recovery dynamics. The focus is to help the women change their behavior, skills and attitudes related to their addictive lifestyles. We also address other problems that emerge for the women in the program and connect them to an array of Brighton Center services as well as services provided by our partners in the community. We offer a long-term, holistic approach to recovery that is comprised of four distinct modules of progression. They are:
- Safe off the Streets is a safe, non-medical environment to withdraw from mood/mind altering substances and a plan of recovery is developed.
- Motivational Track is low-pressure environments were the women commit to the recovery process. Programs are engineered to provide the opportunity for success in a structured environment so that participants can experience the hope of change.
- Phase 1 (Recovery) empowers the participants with effective solutions to the problems of addiction. Goals are brought to focus and include; recovery, social wellness and economic dependence.
- Phase 2 (Transition) provides a means of reintroduction back into society. Participants obtain employment or participate in educational and job training programs, pay rent, attend self-help meetings and prepare a plan of action for living sober as a productive member of society.
What We've Done
The Recovery Center served 240 women last year on their journey of freedom. We see wonderful results and 83% of the women experienced no relapse six months after program completion.
