his suboxone clinic just opened in Bloomingdale. I transferred from another clinic. Great experience, everyone is friendly and caring. Made my appointment the same day. I am very happy with Brightside and glad I made the switch. - N.S.
The doctors have been very helpful with getting me back on track. They take the time to come up with a plan that fits you and your life style. I’ve been clean for over a year now and life has been great thanks to Brightside’s doctors and office staff. The office staff always goes out of there way to help me with any problem I may have. My family and I thank you Brightside. Best of luck to all working to become your best self. - J.H.

This clinic has saved my life on sooo many levels.. From the moment I called them the staff was sweet and understanding. They didn’t look down on me and treated me with respect. They understood I was going through withdrawal and really made me feel good. I was on methadone for 3years and the last clinic I was going to talked to me like i was a child.. looked down on me and was’t understanding at all. I have been coming to BRIGHTSIDE for 5 months and the transition from methadone to suboxen has really kept me balance! BRIGHTSIDE really helped me stay balanced and focus! If you or anyone you know need help, I really recommend them coming to BRIGHTSIDE and join the family. They welcome you and make you feel special. They are the Best!!! and I just love Colleen!! They are truly a blessing to me! - P.C.
