Colby Floyd

National Outreach and Alumni Coordinator

Colby has worked in the Substance Abuse Treatment field for the better part of a decade. He speaks with families, facilities, and referring professionals across the United States to educate those in need of help about Lighthouse’s programming and philosophy. He has worked in various roles at Lighthouse, most recently in direct care at our Sober Living Program. Based in Dallas, Colby is often traveling, attending both local and national conferences, meeting with providers, and touring facilities across the country.


What inspired you to choose this profession?

I initially chose this profession to give back what was freely given to me. A lot of great people helped me on my journey, and I wanted to be able to do that with others who were struggling.

What would you want someone to know about working with you?

I love my job and never thought I would be lucky enough to say that, but I am passionate about helping people. We’re in this together.

Why Lighthouse?

I work at Lighthouse because of the team and the philosophy. From the top down, everyone is on the same page, and the decision-making process is far more democratic than I’ve seen at other Treatment facilities.

What do you wish people knew about Lighthouse who might be hesitant?

I wish people knew how much time and attention is given to each case. Every case is different, so we put a lot of thought into how we can help every guy.
