About Us

BrightQuest offers compassionate and comprehensive treatment within a supportive therapeutic community setting where individuals are given the opportunity to experience genuine connection while developing skills essential for recovery and health. We believe that healing is optimized in a supportive environment that fosters empowerment, responsibility, and social connectedness.

Treating Complex Psychiatric Disorders Since 1979


At BrightQuest Treatment Centers, we treat adults suffering from complex psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and co-occurring disorders.

We carefully assess our clients to determine the most appropriate level of care and are able to adjust the services and support needed as they progress through treatment.

With a typical length of stay exceeding 12 months, our clients have the opportunity to both learn and practice the relationship and life skills needed to take charge of their lives and reach the highest possible level of independence by being an integral member of a supportive community.

BrightQuest's Continuum of Care


To ensure the most individualized and effective treatment, all prospective clients and their families participate in our comprehensive two-day admissions assessment process. Whether our clients are self-referred or come to us from other treatment facilities or hospitals, our in-depth admissions assessment process is essential for determining the most appropriate treatment recommendations and indicated level of care.

The BrightQuest Experience


We believe in the ability to heal when an individual feels seen, welcomed and confirmed in their ability to recover and thrive. BrightQuest’s treatment program offers clients the tools necessary to attain a level of balance and independence relative to their personal capabilities with the confidence and courage to live a healthy, happy, and productive life.

The treatment trajectory at BrightQuest is not based on time, but instead on the acquisition of the relational and life skills necessary for sustained health and success.

  • BrightQuest is a voluntary program; it is not a locked institution or hospital.
  • Our setting is uniquely different from traditional, institutional treatment formats offered at many hospitals and clinics. We promote a balanced approach to health and recovery by focusing on lifestyle changes of the client and his or her family, utilizing individualized treatment plans designed for systematic change and optimal health.
