Located in the Contra Costa County town of San Ramon, California, Bright Heart Health is led by a multidisciplinary team of addiction and eating disorder experts. Treatment hours are accessible with both group and individual therapy and telehealth services available.
Treatment and Staff
At the beginning of treatment each client is assigned a team of clinicians. For both the substance abuse and eating disorder tracks there is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) where clients attend treatment three times a week. The IOP is made up of three group sessions per week that run up to three hours, and at least one individual session. Typically during this program clients are at the facility between nine and 11 hours per week.
A number of therapeutic approaches are used within the individualized treatment programs. CBT, DBT, coping skills and relapse prevention are common. There are also nutritional counseling services to assist with any anxiety or fear surrounding food, body image groups, stress management, grief and loss therapy, meal support, somatic therapy and EMDR. Additionally experiential treatment such as equine therapy and art therapy are integrated. Bright Heart Health also offers specialized group therapy options on the weekends. These groups are for binge and compulsive eaters, groups for anorexia, bulimia and for loved ones of clients who are experiencing these concerns. These groups are for clients ages 15 and up, and are either in person or through live interactive video conferencing. All of these groups require prior registration and are private.
Another unique aspect of the treatment offered at Bright Heart Health is the opioid program, which is the first online opioid treatment through telehealth. Clients meet weekly with their counselors online in order to maximize the convenience. Clients are generally prescribed Suboxone and are expected to meet with their doctors every two weeks.
The staff of Bright Heart Health is a combination of clinical and medical staff who collaborate on all treatment programs. This includes psychologists, LMFTs, physicians, dietitians, LPCs and LCSWs.
