You, too, can rise
The BriteLife team recognizes the importance of not only incorporating a variety of methods into their treatment plans, but also the need to learn about the individuals they are trying to help. This makes it possible to design customized and comprehensive plans that promote safety, healthy and successful outcomes. The team connects with their clients and develops relationships built on trust, respect and compassion.
BriteLife has been the best experience of my life. I came here after hitting rock bottom, feeling hopeless and fearing for my life. BriteLife showed me how to face my demons and value myself, while also looking forward to the future with hope and enthusiasm for the first time since I was about 14 years old. My therapist, Bailey, taught me to believe in myself again. Everyone from the therapists to the behavioral health technician team to the case management team is outstanding. I would recommend this place 10 times out of 10!
BriteLife was an absolutely amazing experience for me. I cannot express how incredible all the staff was. I loved each and every one of them! I was on a horrible path and they saved my life. I am forever grateful for them and would recommend this place to anybody I come across. I had so much support from everyone there and was surrounded by so much care and love! I am on a great path now, thanks to them!
This was my sixth time in treatment in the past three years, and I was finally able to address the demons that were keeping me sick. My therapist, Jessika, helped me more than any other therapist I have ever had. The lovely ladies in case management kept a smile on my face and allowed me to take care of personal issues any time I needed. The facility is gorgeous and very peaceful. The staff is helpful and easy to talk to. I want to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped me along my road to recovery. I am beyond grateful for BriteLife, as they taught me how to live a life of meaning and purpose. Stay humble and honest.
This place is, without a doubt, the best rehab center around! I could not find a decent place to go in my state of North Carolina, but this has been well worth my commute. The staff is amazing, super helpful and friendly. Elyse, Meagan and Alex literally made my transition into and out of treatment a breeze. They are so sweet and very knowledgeable. The food, the view, the chefs, the nurses and the doctors are all very qualified and I would highly recommend that anyone who is struggling with addiction should come here. My life has truly been enhanced and I now have all the tools needed to take on the world! P.S. Jessika is the best! Request her as your therapist for a true turn-around.
This place saved my life. I loved my time at BriteLife — it was the best decision I’ve ever made. The staff there is amazing!
I had a great experience at BriteLife. They helped save my life, and the staff is amazing. My therapist couldn’t have been any better. The experience was absolutely amazing from the time I walked in until the time I coined-out. I have never felt so welcome walking into a place like that before. The group meetings were great, too. Group meetings really helped me talk about my problems and gave me the tools I needed to overcome those problems. It also helped me realize that I wasn't alone and that other people are dealing with the same problems. The one-on-one meetings were awesome as well, and you really get the attention you need during times like these. On top of all that, the food is awesome, too! If you are want to get sober or clean, my advice is go to BriteLife.
BriteLife recovery saved my life. This was my first time in a rehabilitation center and they took me in with open arms and treated me with care and respect the entire time I was there. There are pros and cons to any facility, I suppose, but the pros far outweighed the cons here. The staff is amazingly helpful and they are there for you at all times. The administrative team took care of all my FMLA paperwork with my employer and also handled everything with my insurance provider.
Everyone I met at BriteLife who had been to rehab before mentioned that they got more one-on-one time here than at any other facility. They also said it was the nicest facility they had been to. I agree. They even found a way to keep us entertained and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am forever grateful to BriteLife and had an incredible experience.
BriteLife is a fantastic recovery center. They really care about their clients and I've had the best experience with them.
Great staff! My nurse was fabulous! The Director was awesome! The rooms were so nice and the food was good. I am thankful and blessed to have experienced BriteLife.
This is hands-down the best place to get treatment for substance abuse — the staff and counseling are great!
BriteLife has great employees and technicians. The therapists are also amazing and that's where you really see the difference between them and other recovery centers.
Thank you for saving my life! I will always keep BriteLife close in my heart.
Going to BriteLife for treatment was the best decision I have ever made. They have a wonderful program with a very comfortable environment and caring, friendly, supportive and educated staff. I'm at 405 days and counting!
BriteLife Recovery has an amazing staff! Nancy (clinical director/therapist), Beth (nursing director) and Chris (nurse) provided compassionate care that made the most difficult time in my life much more bearable. They loved me when I could not love myself and prepared me to go back out in the world and succeed. I received this level of care and treatment while in a comfortable and beautiful setting. This facility saved my life and gave me the tools needed for a successful life of recovery.
Hands down, the best place to get recovery for substance abuse! The staff and counseling are great!
BriteLife will always have a place in my heart. Thank you for saving my life!
BriteLife was amazing! It was the best treatment experience I have ever had, and I am still doing great in the aftercare program. Everybody was incredible, from the admissions and medical staff to the counselors, therapists and even the kitchen staff. I would recommend BriteLife to anybody who needs help and have already been doing that!
I am working with a former client at BriteLife Recovery named Reginald, and I am amazed by the care and treatment he received there. He constantly tells me that he feels like a completely different person now, and much better than he felt after completing treatment programs at other facilities in the past. He says this was the first time he actually felt heard and supported, and he received the clinical and medical care he truly needed. I also received a call from Triad Behavioral Health, who referred Reginald to BriteLife, and they also raved about the quality of treatment he received. Thank you for all your great work and please know that you forever have our gratitude.

I would like to say thank you to BriteLife Recovery — they helped save my life. The staff is amazing and the therapists couldn’t be any better. From the time you walk in the door until the time you walk out, they make you feel safe and sound. I have never felt so welcome walking into a place like this before. The group meetings are great. They really allow you talk about your problems and provide the tools needed to overcome your problems. They also help you realize that you are not alone and that other people are dealing with the same issues. The one-on-one meetings are phenomenal as well. The therapists bust their asses to get to the root of your problems, and they give you the focus and attention you need. To make it even better, the food is awesome! That was a big plus for me, lol! If you are wanting to get sober or clean, my advice is to come to BriteLife Recovery — it’s like no other. Thank you to everyone at BriteLife for giving me sobriety.
I was at the lowest point I’d ever been — living without electricity in a cockroach-infested apartment and was hurting mentally, physically and spiritually. I wanted help but didn’t know how to stop. I made a phone call to Mitch and he helped me immediately. From getting me into an appropriate detox and treatment center to cleaning out my apartment, Mitch went above and beyond, simply because I asked him for help. He even drove me there on more than one occasion. I was admitted to treatment the same day. I had a great experience at the treatment center he placed me at and also his sober living facility. I truly don’t know if I would still be clean today if it wasn’t for him. I have rebuilt all my relationships with my family, have worked for the same company for over two years, and went back to school. My life has truly been transformed, and I am extremely grateful for the life I live today.
I've had to make a lot of tough choices and life decisions during my sobriety, and Mitch has always been the one person I run things by before I act. He helps make sure my head is in the right place, and he is in this position because he wants to help. I continued having success after leaving the sober living house and Mitch called me and invited me to come back to work as a behavioral health technician. I accepted and have since been able to take the help Mitch once gave and use it to provide support and compassion for other addicts.
Former Client & Current Team Member
Today is my son’s 34th birthday. I believe he is alive, well and celebrating because of God’s grace and Mitch Baumann. As a parent himself, Mitch knows what it means to love unconditionally, and has taken this love out into the world. His professionalism, mixed with his passion, inspiration, discipline, empathy and compassion to help those that are lost in the throes of addiction is remarkable. He saw the greatness in my son and helped him achieve self-worth. My son has blossomed into the man I always knew he could be. Mitch is a servant of God, humble, and a true man of integrity. I pray that many more will have the opportunity to know him and be blessed by his work and passion to make each life one worth living.

Mitch has saved my life twice. He has been a Godsend filled with guidance and wisdom. When I realized he could overcome substance abuse, I knew I could, too. Because of our ongoing communication, Mitch helps with any obstacle that comes my way. Mitch is the best in his field and no one could do it better, in my opinion. To care about clients the way he does is a gift to the world and to me.
Andrew Gautsch has an amazing ability to make people feel comfortable and at ease almost immediately. His compassion and warmth were instrumental in getting my life back on track, and his strength and conviction have enabled me to stay that way. I could not be more grateful for the positive influence and confidence he instilled in me, and I’m sure he has done so for countless others along the way.
I’m a recovering addict coming up on two years of sobriety. One of my greatest supporters on my road of recovery has been Mitch Baumann. I met him when I was in a recovery house and he became one of the best positive male role models to enter my life. He walked what he talked in every way. He didn’t preach at me like many people did. He simply told me his experience and offered solid advice on how to handle day-to-day life decisions. Mitch has never given up on anyone. I’ve watched Mitch countless times go to bat for his clients when they relapsed, and he got them back into a program. Mitch uses the tools he was blessed with in recovery to help others. I am forever grateful to have met him and to have his continued support in my life. Mitch believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself.
