Getting sober on your own can be extremely difficult (if not, impossible), especially if you are physically dependent on one or more substances. Leaving your home is never easy, especially when you’re in a vulnerable state. But enrolling in our South Carolina residential treatment program can dramatically improve your chances of a better life and brighter future. A life full of wellness, hope, and happiness.

Our Low Country residential rehab provides round-the-clock supervision for people in the beginning stages of their recovery journey. While inpatient detox is focused primarily on medical stabilization, residential treatment lasts longer (up to 6 months or more) and helps clients develop critical life skills for long-term sobriety.

BriteLife Recovery does everything possible to create a warm, welcoming, and comfortable environment for clients at our Hilton Head center. You’ll enjoy a private or semi-private room with resort-style amenities, including pristine grounds with pool / deck. The BriteLife staff will ensure a smooth, stress-free healing experience in our residential rehab. BriteLife understands that clients must feel comfortable, secure, and relaxed in order to move forward in recovery. Client comfort is our priority!



There are fundamental biologic and culture differences between men and women in terms of substance use disorder. Gender differences are seen in rates of dependence, substance of choice, and how the brain reacts to substance abuse. Research also demonstrates that women and men have distinct reasons for substance abuse origins. Gender-sensitive treatment programs are responsive to all of these issues and address the unique needs of each gender in a secure and supportive clinical environment.

Throughout your time in our gender-separate residential drug rehab, you’ll receive ongoing medical assessments for any co-occurring conditions and will participate in individual and group counseling. We invite and encourage family members to participate in counseling sessions, when appropriate. Addiction is a family disease. Having the support of family members during this critical time can be majorly helpful, and family members often also benefit.


Substance use disorder can happen to anyone. However, men and women experience addiction differently. For this reason, an all-male residential rehab can be more successful for long-term recovery for several reasons. First, men are depicted to be strong and less emotional, which may be a hurdle to treatment, as they may attempt to cover-up their real feelings in front of mixed group. At the same time, forming bonds and developing trust with fellow males has shown to be very beneficial to the recovery process. In our men's residential treatment program, clients get the vital support needed from other men in the program.


Women also experience substance abuse differently. As a result, women discover (or rediscover) their self-worth and their ability to grow and in sobriety. They report feeling safe and secure in this environment, which includes female-only housing. In addition to providing individualized care, we offer new age, holistic therapy options that help to guide the spiritual, physical, and social journey toward healing and addiction recovery.

BriteLife makes every attempt to create a whole person approach at our women’s residential rehab program. We will encourage the most brave and beautiful side of each woman to help them rise to the occasion. Our satisfaction comes from seeing women complete a full continuum of care and successfully return to their families and careers.


South Carolina residential rehab involves both psychological and social therapies to help the clients to understand and cope with contributing factors to their addiction. This can be especially true for those who have a co-occurring disorder such as depression, PTSD, or anxiety.

Co-occurring disorders must be treated at the same time. For this reason, it’s important to have a treatment team that understands total health and wellbeing. As a result, individual therapy is critical for effective addiction treatment. While many programs integrate some forms of group therapy, real progress is often made in one-on-one therapy.

The South Carolina residential rehab programs at BriteLife are designed to provide a safe, welcoming environment where clients can focus on healing, wellness, and sobriety. Please call us at 866-470-2187 to find out if residential treatment is right for you.
