This facility and the people who work there are easily saving lives. They really care about the patients in recovery and want to see everyone get better. My life has completely changed for the better since coming here. I have never looked back and I am very thankful for BRIGHTSIDE Clinic! - K.B.
I should have put in a review sooner. I have been a patient here for 6 months. The staff is great, they are professional, but it is a relaxed place, and they treat you like a human. They have never judge me even if I relapsed, they always work with me. I highly recommended Brightside Clinic. - N.S.
Definitely the best treatment staff I've worked with since I went to rehab. They actually listen to what you have to say and work thru any problems you may have together. This facility in north Aurora is easy to find which I love since I'm the type that gets lost easy lol. And again the staff here is amazing they treat you like a normal person bcuz we are they understand this oh and the atmosphere there is the best I've found in Illinois nice music not your every day Dr room. Most of all they realize we addicts have feelings n we aren't bad ppl that is the best feeling when ur trying to get help!! If your serious about stopping and getting help this is the best place to start. - K.C.
