Brightview Health


Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and operated three locations, Brightview Health provides three levels of outpatient-based programming for individuals struggling with chemical dependency. The facility offers a traditional outpatient program, a moderate outpatient program, and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). In addition, the facility also provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals struggling with opioid dependency.


To ensure clients are treated safely and referred to an appropriate level of care, Brightview Health requires clients to participate in a “Day 1 of Induction.” Clients are asked to visit the facility in a semi-withdrawal state, which means abstaining from heroin, opioids, or alcohol for at least 24 hours. Over the course of six to eight hours, clients undergo a physical examination, a clinical assessment, a physician visit, a pharmacy visit, and (if applicable) observed dosing.

After the initial assessment, clients are referred to an appropriate level of care. All outpatient programming consists of individual and group counseling sessions. While the facility encourages 12-step participation, it is not mandatory for the treatment program. Brightview also holds specialized counseling sessions, such as family counseling sessions and pregnancy groups.

Brightview also provides case management services to assist with employment, family issues, court/legal issues, housing, and other areas that need to be addressed. In addition, medication-assisted treatment (Suboxone) is available as an adjunct treatment at all levels of care.

The least-intensive level of care is the traditional outpatient program. Clients in this level of care are required to attend one medical visit, one case management meeting, and one individual counseling session per month, as well as one group counseling sessions per week. Although similar, the moderate outpatient program requires clients to attend two group counseling sessions per week.

Clients who require more programming to maintain sobriety may be referred to the intensive outpatient program. IOP requires clients to attend three group sessions per week, as well as two individual counseling sessions per month.


Brightview Health employs a multidisciplinary team of physicians experienced in addiction medicine, licensed chemical dependency counselors, registered nurses, and family nurse practitioners, and certified addictions registered nurses.
