“Recovery is not cemented in just a couple of weeks,” said Raymond Waller, hospital administrator for Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery. “This temporary residence provides patients with the time, support, and confidence they need to gain a lasting foundation of sobriety,” said Waller. “Additionally, the home-like environment can effectively transition a patient into a positive routine that helps them reach their goals and potential,” said Waller.

The new halfway house is located on the Ascension Brighton Center for Recovery campus, at 12851 Grand River Ave, in Brighton.
