Sober Living

We provide a safe and positive environment for men who are recovering from drug and alcohol addictions, and to provide resources to help them to learn to live sober for life.
Lighthouse Sober Living Program is a 4-phase program. Participants start out with structure and accountability which decreases with phase advancement. The overall purpose is for Participants to develop a sober daily routine, sober lifestyle, and sober support system that can be maintained even after he moves on from the Lighthouse.
Participants here are living in a sober environment and are surrounded by others who share a common experience who support one another in their sobriety. One of our goals is to work in partnership with the community service agencies and educational institutions to help people in recovery on their path to learning healthy behaviors. In addition we strive to help them transition into living constructive lives after overcoming destructive behaviors to live sober for life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To help people recover from drug and alcohol addiction. So that they are truly changed, not just surviving but thriving, living a new life free from addictions, sober for life!
We achieve this by providing a structured living environment. We hold our participants accountable for their recovery through support meetings, drug testing, working a fulltime job, chores, curfew, etc. We help people rebuild their lives mind, body and soul.

Currently, we operate from an old frat house where we house up to 48 men in recovery. We also have two residential houses that we rent. We house four participants in one house and seven in the other. We hold five different weekly support meetings in-house available for all participants. We also work with community service agencies, judicial and court systems such as: Pretrial, Community Corrections, Drug Court, DUI Court, Wellness Court, Probation, Department of Corrections and the Public Defenders Office, as well as educational institutions to help our people in recovery on their path to learning healthy behaviors.

Since the Lighthouse's inception nearly ten years ago, we have developed a recovery program that can truly lead someone to true and complete and total sobriety where they are not just surviving day by day, meeting after meeting but thriving in a life free of addictions sober for life! We have grown from housing 25+/- men to 58 men across 3 locations. We started out working with a select few agencies and now we work with well over a dozen agencies and organizations across the entire state. We receive calls and participants from all across the nation, we have had participants from as far as England and Kenya.
The main house we operate out of is owned by a fraternity so, we need to build a new Home of our own where we can help more people and a house that is suited for our needs. We would like to purchase or build a house for women as well as residential style homes for participants reintegrating back into a more traditional housing environment.
