Lighthouse Recovery Institute Talks to Sun Sentinel

Brittany Ringersen, Lighthouse Recovery Institute’s CEO, a Florida Drug Rehab Center, started treating men and women with substance use disorder in early 2014. The passion for helping others struggling with addiction comes after battling her own.

Ringersen was introduced to prescription painkillers innocently enough. Following the removal of her wisdom teeth at age 16, she received a prescription for opiates. Within a few years, that prescription turned into an addiction. This standard practice of overprescribing from doctors was historically common. As a result, the medical community has received scrutiny since the onset of the opiate epidemic.

Our Response to Florida’s Opioid Crisis

After the sun-sentinel feature, our Florida Drug Rehab Center has grown tremendously. Ringersen reports starting the facility back in 2014 to provide unique and boutique services to women struggling with addiction. Over the last few years, the vision has grown. Now, also offering clinical services to men. Thus, treating both sexes for substance use disorder and complex mental health issues.

Additionally, services include family programming, medication-assisted treatment, and dual-diagnosis services. The expansion of the programming corresponds with the prescription opioid use that is sweeping throughout Florida.

Top Drug Rehab Center in Florida

Our Florida Drug Rehab continues to make headlines for our multi-faceted approach to treating substance use disorder. Our clinical philosophy to address problems specific to men and women makes us unique. Generally, programming consists of a heavy concentration on addiction, trauma, and co-occurring disorders.

As a result, our innovative approach to treating the whole person as an individual, instead of a “one size fits all” is a unique process. Thus, our goal is to help every person who walks through our door to find a solution to their problems.

So, check out the great article the Sun-Sentinel published on the work our Florida Drug Rehab Center provides to those affected by various addictions. Also, for more information regarding our various addiction treatment programs, click here, or call us today.
