Frequently Asked Questions
Is Lighthouse Recovery Institute Licensed and Accredited?
One of the most critical factors in choosing a treatment center is selecting a facility that is licensed and accredited by an independent organization. At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, we are certified and accredited by the Joint Commission, an independent, non-profit organization which certifies healthcare and medical facilities. We also hold licenses from the state of Florida to provide care through the Department of Children and Families. All residences maintain certification through the Florida Association of Recovery Residences (FARR), an independent body that ensures that sober houses operate ethically and effectively.
Is Lighthouse Recovery Institute an Ethical Substance Abuse Treatment Program?
The reason this page exists is to assist with individuals seeking assistance with substance use disorder and mental health to become more knowable about how to find the ideal facility and program for themselves. The ongoing ethical violations in the addiction treatment industry have lowered the threshold of clinical care and have infiltrated into every single state. Drug addiction and Mental Health Treatment is effective and does work, and excellent programs do exist. Our agency operates in a capacity where patient care is first.
Staffing with appropriate credentials is essential because you should know what qualifications the people have that are treating your loved one. We have licensed level therapists and appropriate medical staff in house. You can view more regarding our staff here.
How are patients being treated with clinical services?
Our counselors provide a multifaceted approach to treating substance use disorder through a variety of evidenced-based treatment modalities. We offer a variety of services that are based on each person’s level of care including the ability to modify and increase individual sessions. Each therapist has a maximum caseload of nine patients in active treatment. You can learn more about specific therapies here.
Family Involvement is our core belief to be one of the most significant components of effective treatment. Having trust and transparency with the family is in our opinion how we make the most significant difference for long term success in recovery.
Providing ongoing and continuing care support for patients is another example of what puts our agency above board. Approximately 20% of our patients continue to engage in private therapy with their therapists after completing six months of addiction treatment. Learn more about our family treatment services here.
Being Transparent is vital. For us, at Lighthouse Recovery Institute we pride ourselves in being transparent from the beginning. We provide details on programming, out of network costs, expectations and more before patients come to our facility. We send out welcome packets to the family to obtain more clinical information and work together to overcome any barriers.
We have no outreach marketers. We have no pay per click advertising. We value and operate based on the quality of our treatment experience and the outcomes of the individuals we serve. You were either referred to us from someone, a facility recommended us to you, or you came to our website directly. We are whom we say we are and we do what we say we do.
When does someone need treatment?
This question can best be answered by each individual in the light of their own circumstances. However, there are some general guidelines we can offer.
Someone needs treatment if their drug or alcohol use is interfering with their life. This can take many different forms. For example, an individual may be able to work and support their family, while also drinking and drugging to excess. Do they need treatment? Absolutely.
On the other hand, it may be glaringly obvious that an individual needs some sort of addiction treatment. If that’s the case, don’t wait. Call a rehab today!
How long is the Program?
While the length of stay varies depending on each patient’s needs and goals, studies show that the longer an individual is in treatment for addiction, the higher their chances become of long-term success in recovery. We recommend that patients stay involved in the program for a minimum of thirty days, with most patients remaining enrolled for an average of 60-90 days. Some patients, however, take advantage of free long-term aftercare and attend outpatient groups for months following the completion of their initial drug and alcohol rehab program. Our admissions department will work with you before your arrival to determine a timeframe for your stay, and the clinical team will meet with you regularly to assess progress and projected completion dates.
What Should I Bring to Treatment?
When preparing to admit to treatment, new patients should bring two to three weeks’ worth of clothing. All residences have washers and dryers on site which patients may use for laundry. In addition to comfortable, everyday clothing, patients may want to bring one or two outfits appropriate for interviews, as many patients will begin seeking employment or volunteer work once at the intensive outpatient level of care. We also recommend that patients bring a beach towel or swimwear, as our residences are within walking distance of the beach.
Patients may also bring cell phones, devices, or laptops. Patients restricted from using these items while on the PHP level of care will be housed separately from patients at different levels of care, and their valuables will be kept in secure lockers to ensure their safe-keeping during this time. Patients are recommended to bring hygiene products and any medications they are currently taking. Upon intake, patients will have a medical assessment to ensure that they have the necessary and appropriate medications.

What Type of Support is Available for Families and Loved Ones?
Addiction treatment programs should offer support for families, to help create the healthiest environment for the recovering individual and to improve the family system and promote healing from the impacts of addiction. At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, we offer a family program providing support for families based on their own specific needs. Additionally, each patient’s primary therapist is available to schedule family sessions via phone or in person to assist with healthy communication and to set goals and boundaries within the family system.
Is Drug and Alcohol Rehab Expensive?
Addiction treatment can be affordable. We have designed our programs to be accessible to any individual who needs care. Many treatment services are covered by health insurance , and our clinical team works closely with many healthcare providers to ensure that services are covered. For those who don’t have insurance, we offer flexible financing plans and self-pay options. We are more than happy to work with you and your family to make treatment affordable and accessible. To make financial arrangements for treatment, please contact our finance and admissions department directly.
