Lighthouse Treatment Center Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
- Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
- Holistic Therapy
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
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
The Lighthouse is filled with compassion for hurting people. It becomes you family!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
