ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Earlier this week, BrightView, an outpatient addiction program, announced the opening of a new center in Roanoke.

The new center, located at 1345 Plantation Road in Roanoke, offers accessible, comprehensive addiction treatment in a discreet outpatient setting.

According to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Virginia reported an all-time high of fatal overdoses in 2020. It was also noted the presence of methamphetamine in fatal cases reported in 2020 nearly doubled since 2019.

BrightView’s treatment programs include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), individual and group therapy, peer support, and social services to help those seeking treatment overcome various challenges they may encounter. 

The program also offers telehealth and virtual treatment options.

Onsite, BrightView practices social distancing, provides masks, and hand sanitizing stations.

By working with local agencies, BrightView also assists in finding patients safe housing, reliable transportation, access to food, and even help them prepare for jobs.

“We understand from decades of research that improving lives one patient at a time creates positive trends across the community. Building partnerships with local medical providers and justice system professionals is also crucial in developing continuity of care. We want to ensure that anyone with the disease of substance use disorder can achieve long-term recovery,” said Chad Smith, BrightView’s CEO.  

Treatment often begins the same day with walk-ins welcome until 3 p.m. weekdays.

For patients in withdrawal, it takes less than 4 hours from the time they walk through the door to receive stabilizing medication and complete their first counseling session.

Anyone seeking help can call BrightView at 833-510-HELP (4357) 24-hours a day, seven days a week, or schedule an appointment online at brightviewhealth.com.
