Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery provides a children’s program based on the Betty Ford Children’s Program model. Founded in 1948 and incorporated in 1950, Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery was one of America’s first addiction treatment hospitals. It’s founder, Harry Henderson, had much help and involvement in the establishment of the center from Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Treatment is based on the belief that alcoholism is a physical, mental, and spiritual disease that can be treated with medical intervention, counseling and a strong spiritual life supported by 12-step programs. For more than 60 years, Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery has been helping equip patients with the tools they need to live clean and sober lives.
