Brighton Recovery Center for Women Looks to Expand

May 16, 2017 [Newport, Kentucky] - Brighton Center, Inc. has entered into a purchase agreement with the Diocese of Covington to purchase 50 acres surrounding the property at 5161 Skyline Drive in Campbell County, KY. This agreement will allow Brighton Center to begin the planning stages for an expansion of the Brighton Recovery Center for Women. This successful program in Florence, KY provides long-term housing and supportive recovery services for women in recovery from drug or alcohol use.  

Since opening in 2008, the Brighton Recovery Center has focused on peer-driven recovery, intensive case management, and a holistic continuum of care. The women in this program are accountable to each other and program requirements, including remaining drug-free.

The Brighton Recovery Center has maintained some of the most impactful statewide outcomes among the graduates of the program including a significant reduction in the use of illicit substances, a significant decrease in criminal justice involvement, increase in employment, and attainment of stable housing.

“With the need for recovery services still being great in the Northern Kentucky area, we believe this expansion will help relieve existing waiting lists and save lives. We are hopeful that this potential expansion will allow more individuals to receive the necessary treatment for the disease of addiction and become successful members of this community,” said Tammy Weidinger, Brighton Center President and CEO.

Women at the Brighton Recovery Center are connected to an array of additional Brighton Center programs and services to build and maintain life skills. Workforce Development services offered include assistance with personal branding, resume writing, job searching, and interviewing skills. Financial Services provides the women with financial education such as money management skills, budgeting, credit building, and credit repair along with providing one-on-one financial sessions. The women are also connected with classes on topics such as maintaining healthy relationships, parenting skills, relapse prevention, nutrition, and coping mechanisms to maintain recovery.
