The ULTIMATE in treatment centers. I’ve struggled with alcohol for over 40 years. Lost both parents to the disease, and it tried hard to take me too. Thanks to the lighthouse and the exceptional staff, I now have another chance at life. People come here from all across the globe, and now I know why. Thank you lighthouse staff; for saving my life! - Vincent M.

When I got to the Lighthouse I was broken but the staff pushed me to stay and continue working on my recovery. It has been the best decision I ever made in my life. I’ve gained so much here mentally, physically and spiritually. Not only am I sober for multiple years but I have a strong group of friends and a strong community through the alumni program. I was also shown that you could recover through a 12 step program which has given me so much spiritually. I have regained my confidence, my energy and given a new outlook on life. The groups and therapy always got to the core of my issues and the community is so strong that talking to your fellows is easy and actually encouraged. I have been shown so much love here and I am eternally grateful for the lighthouse. - Charles C.

I spent 90 days at the light house after haven been in four other treatment centers before. By far light house has one of the best programs I have been to. The staff is bar none; specifically my counselor. She always had my best interest in mind, advocated for me, went above and beyond, and was well versed. She is one of the best counselors I have had the privilege of working with and was instrumental in my recovery and staying 90 days. My therapist was excellent in addressing all of my issues and was easy to work with. I can attest to the amazing program the light house offers and feel confident in my recovery as a direct result of the program. I would recommended it to any and everyone. The cooking was amazing. The cook cooked 5 star meals that never disappointed. One guy on the support staff, has a working knowledge of the big book and truly helps saving peoples lives. All of them, along with the footwork I have done are responsible for helping me become the man I am today. Life is up hill from here today, thank you the light house. I will never forget my past or where I once was. - Gabe

Lighthouse is one of the best programs that I have ever seen. Client care and well being comes first and foremost always, the entire staff has incredible compassion for all who come in for help. It’s amazing to see a person come in broken and complete the program, walking out tall and proud. I can’t put into words, how proud I am to be a part of this life saving program. - Anonymous

Lighthouse helped repair the damage my addiction caused with their family program. The therapy sessions help. If you think there’s no change and the bridges have been burned, try their family counseling sessions. Miracles happen there. - Anonymous

Just wanted to say hello and say thank for all your help in my recovery. Since I left on November 23rd I have been completely sober and am on day 83 of sobriety. - Anonymous

Not sure how many check in after leaving the Lighthouse to update but thought I would drop a note. I was well on my way to an early grave when I first stepped foot in there but thanks to your staff and the loving support of my family and employers I am on my way to hopefully being a lifelong success story. - Anonymous

I attend AA meetings regularly and have made many new friends in the community and have a support system that (feel can help for years to come. Please thank Gloria and Kelly in particular ag they helped me dig a little deeper and get to the root of the problem. I am back at work. Back to being a father, brother and son. And I can’t get enough of people telling me how great I look compared to that zombie that got dropped off at your doorsteps just 83 days ago. - Anonymous

I got a message from Jo to call Tammy your alumni coordinator on Tuesday. l will give Tammy a call shortly. I would say I miss seeing you guys regularly but that would be a complete lie. I like going to Walmart without a clip boarded escort. Kidding aside. Once again to you and to your entire staff for, no lie, the part you played in saving my life… thank you. - Anonymous
