Individual needs are addressed on a regular basis and counseling sessions will focus on the promotion of self sufficiency and independent living.
Therapy groups are conducted on a regular scheduled basis. The purpose of group therapy is to carry the message of recovery through such issues as self esteem, relapse triggers and goal setting. Group members are encouraged to openly participate in a safe forum under the guidance of our professional therapy staff.
Peer groups provide residents the opportunity to offer each other support and encouragement throughout the treatment process. Group members explore common experiences and successes with each other as they learn how their behaviors impact those around them in a community living environment.
The development of effective recovery life skills is a primary focus of treatment at the Lighthouse for Men. Throughout their stay, residents will learn to become proficient in life skills such as managing medications, taking responsibility for medical and psychiatric appointments, financial responsibility, household management and healthy recreational activities. Attendance at 12 Step recovery groups, as well as understanding the importance of an ongoing committment to their recovery is a daily component of life skill training.

Educational groups are held several times weekly and address topics ranging from basic recovery concerns to overall health and nutrition.
