Addiction Medicine at BrightView

The BrightView program is designed as a comprehensive medical wellness model. Our curriculum guides and educates patients on how to build the foundation for a life-long recovery process; educating patients on the neuropsychological approach. Our program includes a comprehensive treatment plan for symptom management, medical and psychological stabilization, and parallels the early phases of recovery. Although medication assisted treatment is an important part of the model at BrightView, pharmacotherapy alone is rarely sufficient treatment for substance use disorder. Treatment outcomes demonstrate a dose response effect based on the level or amount of psychosocial treatment services that are provided. Therefore, we at BrightView believe that we have an additional level of responsibility to patients with substance use disorder; this responsibility goes beyond prescribing and/or administering medications to treat chemical dependency. In line with that philosophy, BrightView only provides medication assisted treatment services to patients who are enrolled in our mental and social wellness program.

Shawn A. Ryan, MD, MBA, ABEM, ABAM
President & Chief Medical Officer
Shawn originally trained as an emergency physician at the University of Cincinnati and simultaneously obtained his MBA while completing his residency. For the past 10 years, Shawn has practiced in the Greater Cincinnati area, and for part of that time functioned as a hospital administrator for Mercy Health (Department Chairman of Quality and Patient Safety). During this period, Shawn became acutely aware of the issue of heroin/opioid abuse in the region and for the past 5 years has been working tirelessly to make a difference in this community. Shawn serves on many regional, state, and national committees (including some for ASAM) focused on turning the tide of this epidemic. He is very excited to continue to lead in the field of addiction medicine and to have the opportunity to substantially impact the treatment needs of our region.
