Our Mission

Our mission is to provide substance abuse & expert eating disorder treatment and support to all individuals struggling with addiction or an eating disorder regardless of location, schedule, or finances. Through the use of telemedicine, we connect experienced clinicians with individuals to treat and provide a full spectrum of support needed to recover. We assist, educate, and guide each person down the path to full recovery.

You

We believe in individualized treatment, aligned to your goals. We focus on symptom reduction and behavior change that leads to lasting recovery.

Family

We provide free family support groups so your loved-ones better understand the disorder, your challenges, and the best way to support you.

Experts

Each individual is assigned a team of experts from the addiction & eating disorder field, including psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and dietitians.

Our Beliefs

Addictions & eating disorders are complex disorders, resulting from multiple factors including genetics, biology, trauma, family, social ideals, and psychology. We use evidence-based practices and focus on each individual.

Every person’s struggle with addiction or an eating disorder is different. Our staff works with the individual to create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the specific needs of the individual.
Our services available to clients anywhere and anytime. Our group and individual sessions occur from morning to night, removing the hassles of inconvenient appointments. Our patient portal and forums are available anytime. Telemedicine makes treatment convenient.
For those countless individuals who shy away from treatment in a public space due to stigma, shame, or fear, Bright Heart is the most private option possible. Individuals can join from the safety of their own home without the worry of someone knowing they are in treatment.

Bright Heart Health makes expert care available to anyone, wherever they have Internet access. Traditional geographic barriers no longer prevent individuals from getting access to the best professionals from across the field. Our experts have a minimum of 5 years in treating substance abuse or eating disorders, and 2 years working at a partial hospitalization, residential or hospital setting.
We believe in providing a supportive environment without judgement. In addition, we know recovery is difficult; therefore, every client has access to a private client portal with personalized videos from our treatment team and educational materials.
Bright Heart Health uses evidence-based practices as the foundation of treatment. We use established psychometrics to monitor and manage patient care and evaluate program effectiveness. In addition, we have partnered with Stanford University on research in telemedicine and eating disorders.

Our Philosophy

  • Clinical

    Our philosophy is to meet each person where they are currently in the recovery process and work beside them to develop a vision of where they can be. We also help them to develop the skills needed to implement their treatment plan and to make their vision a reality.

  • Medical

    The patient is the priority and “the book”.  We can do so much more for our patients if we are monitoring them medically as well as psychologically. The patient has direct access to the medical director. Working as a team, it ensures our patients’ medical condition is allowing them to participate fully in the program.

  • Nutrition

    Bright Heart Health appreciates and celebrates the diversity of body sizes and shapes. We practice a mindful eating, non-judgmental, size accepting approach with emphasis on improving one’s health through nutrition. The nutrition prescription is based on one’s individual needs. We encourage acceptance of all foods in moderation and letting go of any judgment towards foods.

Love, Support, Help

Our Leaders

Bright Heart Health’s team represents a cross-section of top professionals from the field. Among their ranks are authors in the eating disorder certification used by many therapists, as well as clinical directors, and faculty at major universities. In addition to maintaining their private research and practice, they have joined Bright Heart Health in the hopes of increasing access to quality care.
