FAQs About Our Centers

The best way to help yourself, or your loved one, with substance addiction, is to ask as many questions as you can about recovery. The more knowledge you absorb, the more you learn about addiction and how you and your family can cope on the journey to recovery. We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions about addiction rehab and recovery at the Lighthouse Recovery Center.

Our program is truly natural and holistic in nature. We do not believe that treatment simply consists of substituting one drug for another, as many other treatment centers do. We strive not to prescribe anti-anxiety, anti-depressant or other medication as a solution order to deal with mental health issues. Due to this, we are not able to take all types of addicts and any potential clients must go through a thorough assessment either in person or over the phone prior to enrollment.

Although physical symptoms alone don’t constitute addiction, they are a big part of it. If you or someone you love experiences withdrawal symptoms after stopping drugs or alcohol, you should seek treatment. If a doctor has recommended treatment, or substance abuse has damaged work, family, or social relationships and you still can’t stop, seek treatment. If you or your loved one suffers from substance abuse, their best chance at recovery is seeking professional help.

Of course. At Lighthouse Recovery Centers, we like to incorporate group therapy and activities into our treatment programs, but you will still receive one-on-one therapy at least twice a week. You’ll also do a one-on-one case management session every week.

Yes. LGBTQ patients struggle with very specific social issues that may have resulted in their addiction. We accept LQBTQ patients, and we also have LGBTQ counselors and therapists that help our LGBTQ patients on their recovery journey.

Yes! We know how much people’s pets mean to them and we welcome well-behaved pets with open arms at the Center.

Yes. Although both of these behavioral conditions are treated at the Lighthouse Recovery Center, there are some differences between the two. Drug abuse is a disorder that stems from a destructive pattern of using drugs or alcohol as a coping mechanism. It may be more difficult to identify substance abuse because these people still (mostly) have control over their lives. Substance addiction (also known and substance or chemical dependency), on the other hand, is characterized by the complete inability of the addict to stop using, even if this has a negative impact on their work, social, or family life. 

Our residential patients have access to our facilities for their entire recovery journey, but our program days and office are open during normal working hours from Monday-Friday.

 Absolutely! One of the key drivers of our success is helping patients reintegrate into society with as much support as we can give. Our case managers work around the clock to help our recently discharged patients become successful, sober members of the community.

For people of faith, addiction and abuse can bring elevated levels of shame and despair. Addicts often doubt or lose their faith during their years of addiction. Faith-based recovery is a faith-centered treatment approach that helps religious patients to reconnect, renew, and strengthen their faith and use that to help them on their journey to recovery.
