BrightQuest Levels of Treatment

Levels of Care in Treatment

BrightQuest provides compassionate and comprehensive treatment within a therapeutic community where individuals are given the opportunity to move through progressive phases of treatment in a supportive, inclusive atmosphere. Each level of care is designed to meet our clients where they are at in their treatment journey so we can provide them with the tools they need to develop sustainable daily living skills to achieve greater independence.

At BrightQuest, each individual is supported in developing and practicing skills that help them live a more independent and fulfilling life. Members of the community are empowered to make choices, search for options, and solve problems effectively. Self-esteem is strengthened and the development of life skills are gained through the process of discovery and learning. The primary goal at BrightQuest is to help our clients learn and integrate the skills necessary to live a happy, healthy, and independent life.

Intensive Residential Treatment


24-Hour Staffing and Monitoring

Our Intensive Residential Treatment homes are non-locked, licensed residential treatment facilities that provide 24-hour supported and monitored living, our highest level of care. Clients receive 24/7 care, programming, and supervision. The residential program has been designed for clients who need a higher level of supervision and support while stabilizing and preparing for a less structured setting. Admission to our residential programs is intended to be temporary and reserved for individuals who have been referred by the clinical team subsequent to program assessment.

All Programming and Services Occur at the Residence

Our trained BrightQuest staff conducts up to 35 therapeutic groups each week that focus on stabilization, skill-building, and symptom education and management. Social connection and interaction with housemates are also built into the daily program and facilitated by program staff. Weekly individual therapy is provided by one of our experienced clinicians.

Medication Management, ADLs, and Cooking Provided by Staff

Clients receive daily support in routine living activities such as meals, chores, and medication compliance. Our short-term goal is to help prepare your loved one for the next level of care.

Community-Based Residential Treatment


24-Hour Staff Support

Our Community-Based Residential Treatment homes are non-locked, licensed residential treatment facilities that provide 24-hour staff support. Clients receive 24/7 care, programming, and supervision. The Community-Based Residential Treatment program is for clients who need a significant level of supervision and support while preparing for transitioning to Semi-Independent Living.

Programming and Clinical Services Occur at Residence and at the BrightQuest Center

Clients at this level of care receive treatment and programming services both in the house and at the BrightQuest Center, where they begin to interact with clients from other homes. Social connection and interaction with peers are also built into the daily program and facilitated by program staff. Weekly individual therapy is provided by one of our experienced clinicians.

Clients Learn Household Management Skills

Clients learn to manage their activities of daily living (ADLs) and their medications. Our caring staff supports them in learning budgeting, grocery shopping, and cooking.

Semi-Independent Living


Individual 1:1 Staff Support as Needed

Our Semi-Independent Living level of care may be the recommended entry point to BrightQuest for some of our new clients. Though no overnight, live-in house manager is present, BrightQuest staff regularly visits each house in addition to each morning and evening, 7 days per week, to verify medication compliance, chore completion, and to confirm that the house is in good order.

All Clinical Services Happen at the BrightQuest Center

Clients at this level of care receive all their treatment and programming at the BrightQuest Center. Social connection and membership in our therapeutic community is built into the program and facilitated by staff. Weekly individual therapy is provided by one of our experienced clinicians.

Clients Integrate Into the Local Community and Demonstrate Independent Living Skills

Clients manage their own activities of daily living (ADLs) and their medications with staff support, as needed. They budget, shop, and prepare meals independently with their housemates.

Extended Services


For Clients Who have Completed Semi-Independent Living

In the Extended Services (outpatient) level of care, clients live independently. This level of care offers BrightQuest clients an individualized therapeutic structure to continue their progress after successfully transitioning from Semi-Independent Living. This allows clients the ability to keep up with daily activities and responsibilities while receiving the clinical support needed to maintain stability and independence.

Clients Live Independently and Receive Therapeutic Services at the BrightQuest Center

Clients in Extended Services receive exceptional treatment coordinated to work harmoniously with employment, volunteering, school, or other important commitments in their daily lives. In this level of care, clients manage all their household duties and medications independently.

Services Prescribed Are Based on Individual Client Need

Our Extended Services level of care is individualized to the unique needs and interests of each client to ensure their continued progress toward greater independence.
