Meet The Team
CAP, President and CEO
As CEO, Brittany has built a high quality, ethical, and cutting edge addiction treatment facility. As a native Floridian, and graduate of Florida Atlantic University, it was important to Brittany that the knowledge she’s gained through her many years in recovery be used to create a cost effective option for those in need of treatment in Florida. Her unique approach to recovery seamlessly blends compassion, motivation, and accountability. Brittany believes that addiction doesn’t affect only the addict, but rather, the entire family. She’s molded a clinical modality that engages both patient and family to truly facilitate long-term recovery. Her passion is helping men and women engage with the underlying issues that drove them to drugs and alcohol in the first place. Keeping this in mind, Brittany set out to create a clinically driven, comprehensive, addiction treatment center. It’s safe to say that her passion and unrelenting drive to help those still struggling with addiction has helped Brittany to make Lighthouse Recovery Institute a truly one of a kind and highly effective treatment center.
