Our unique model focuses on three pillars of treatment—community, family, and independent living. Our fully integrative approach addresses the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of our clients.
We believe that clients are most successful when given the opportunity to experience genuine connection and bonding with others in treatment.
We believe that family participation is essential in the successful treatment of a loved one, and at BrightQuest, family takes an active role.
We support individuals in developing the life skills needed to take charge of their lives and reach the highest possible level of independence.
BrightQuest is a values–oriented community. Our community culture was originally founded on the Native American philosophy that emphasized personal spirituality as an important element of recovery, a sense of community, and a desire to excel.
