An approach backed by decades of expertise.

Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive environment for people to heal. Using evidence-based approaches, our methodologies are backed by a team with 100+ years of combined Treatment Experience.

With many providers to choose from, clients and families should know that when they choose Lighthouse, they’ll be working with best-in-class staff that adheres to and surpasses the industry’s highest standards.


The Lighthouse Treatment Philosophy

Extended Treatment programs give individuals the accountability, structure, and real-world applications that are necessary for long-term success. For this reason, Lighthouse focuses solely on long-term treatment and has built each subset of our program utilizing a holistic approach.


Our programming balances a variety of clinical modalities and a focus on life-skills training, giving clients the insight, experience, tools, and confidence they need to lead rewarding and independent lives.


Recovery is a process that requires real change, starting with an intensive and often uncomfortable confrontation with reality. We’ve worked to guide hundreds of clients and their families through this transformative experience.


Each individual’s circumstance is entirely unique, as are the drivers behind one’s addiction. Our staff-to-client ratio, program structure, and holistic approach allows us to work on a customizable basis with each client.


It’s no secret people struggle in recovery and often return to treatment multiple times. Nearly all cited studies show dramatically increased success rates when Inpatient Treatment is followed up with aftercare programming.

We adhere to - and surpass - the Treatment Industry's highest standards.

NAATP is a nonprofit professional society that represents hundreds of addiction treatment providers. Our membership signifies a commitment to upholding the highest level of Ethics and Standards within the Addiction Treatment industry.

The Benefits of Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient Rehab is a necessary part of the treatment continuum for someone discharging from a Residential Facility. It can also be the starting point for those who cannot leave the commitments of work, family, or school to attend a 30-day Inpatient Program.
Our programs, such as Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) provide structured Clinical Support, but give individuals the necessary skills, opportunities for practical application, and the time needed to treat the underlying causes of one’s addiction.

*de Andrade, Dominique, et al. “The Effectiveness of Residential Treatment Services for Individuals with Substance Use Disorders: A Systematic Review.” Drug and Alcohol Dependence, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 1 Aug. 2019.


90% of individuals needing Substance Abuse Treatment do not seek help.* As often as we work with clients who have completed a 30-day Residential Program, we see clients who are unable to leave behind work, home, school, or other obligations for such a period of time.

Key Takeaway: Outpatient Rehab reduces barriers to Treatment and offers more people the ability to seek help.

*O’Reilly, Kevin B. “90% Who Need Substance Abuse Treatment Don’t Get It.” American Medical Association, 22 Oct. 2019.


Five times more individuals are likely to succeed long-term, having already achieved two years of sobriety.* Our Outpatient Programs give individuals the necessary skills, ability for practical application, and accountability needed for sustained recovery.

Key Takeaway: Substance Abuse and Co-occurring Mental Health Disorders are complex and cannot be treated quickly or symptomatically.

*Laudet, Alexandre B, et al. “Pathways to Long-Term Recovery: A Preliminary Investigation.” Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 12 Apr. 2007.

Modern Therapy

PHP’s and IOP’s have emerged as a critical facet of 21st-century addiction treatment for people who need a more intensive level of service than usual outpatient treatment, and they allow participants to avoid or step down successfully from inpatient services.*

Key Takeaway: Compared with Inpatient care, Outpatient services have at least two advantages: increased duration of treatment and the opportunity to engage and treat consumers while they remain in their local environments.

Young Adult Usage

Marijuana and hallucinogen use in the past year (2022) reported by young adults 19 to 30 years old increased significantly in 2021 compared to five and 10 years ago, reaching historic highs in this age group since 1988.*

Key Takeaway: Programs such as Sober Living when combined with Outpatient Clinical Programs can be an effective solution for young adults as they’re still able to work and/or attend school while developing a life in recovery.
