The BRIGHTSIDE Origin

BRIGHTSIDE was started with the goal to get people into substance use disorder quickly and comfortably.  This meant always getting a live person when you need help and create an experience where patients felt welcome with no judgement.  Initially, that started in May, 2015 with the BRIGHTSIDE Clinic, which provides concierge level, outpatient treatment with medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder.  

We have now expanded our services to treat all substance use disorders with the BRIGHTSIDE Recovery, a comprehensive therapeutic organization that provides outpatient treatment for other use disorders, including alcohol, cocaine, benzodiazepines, stimulants, and marijuana.

The BRIGHTSIDE Recovery Mission

Our mission is to provide a concierge type experience for patients suffering from all substance use disorders. Our treatment programs are comfortable, convenient and customizable to guide your path to recovery.

BRIGHTSIDE was established in 2015 and has been the leader in addiction treatment ever since.  BRIGHTSIDE initially started with providing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) through our BRIGHTSIDE Clinic. BRIGHTSIDE Recovery’s programs have the extra layer of support through individual and group therapy, peer support and sustainable aftercare.

We work with every patient to achieve continued success after leaving BRIGHTSIDE Recovery. We believe to overcome addiction, one needs to continually manage the triggers associated with their past addiction. Thus, our outpatient programs and one-on-one therapy treatments work long term to better ensure a positive recovery with continued access to the medication-assisted treatment (MAT).


BRIGHTSIDE Recovery Treatment

We have several treatment options, all of which are comfortable, convenient and discrete programs. We are available to you at any of our convenient Illinois locations or via Telehealth. We guarantee that you will speak to someone immediately or the same day to help you find treatment.  If you decide to enter our program, we can typically start you the same day because we don’t have waitlists! 

Whether you are dependent on alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, meth or xanax,  our intensive outpatient treatment programs and one-on-one therapy treatments are uniquely designed for each patient based on their use disorder and lifestyle needs.
