I have not experienced anything like the Beacon House, they gave me a whole new out look on life and what I need was their structural program of recovery.

Simply the best Rehab in the country. I have been to several in my life and received the most professional and knowledgeable help I could have possibly wished for. I have recommended the Beacon House to others in the past and will continue to do so.

The Beacon House is head and shoulders above the rest in the treatment of substance abuse disorders. The Beacon House is the epitome of social model that creates a warm and safe environment for participa nts to recover from sometimes decades of abuse and trauma. The Staff takes the time to assist the men in not only recovery from drug and alcohol dependence, but the development of good character that allows them to leave there better husbands, Fathers, sons, employers, employees, friends, and community members. Hats off to the Beacon House. They should be cloned and placed strategically throughout the United States.

The Beacon House has saved my life from pain and suffering. My life was hopeless before coming to the Beacon House in 2005. I learned so many valuable life lessons and learned how to be a man not a child in a grown mans body. I have life long friends now that I continue to have daily interactions with. After graduation the program I stayed at the sober living for several more years and continued my education. The results are incredible and beyond belief. I know have a four year degree, my own business, and
I'm the happiest I have every been. The Beacon House is a life changer.

The Beacon House saved my life. I had sought professional help for my drug addiction for years and the results was always relapse. Since being a resident at the Beacon House, I have been sober for 3 years, reunited with my family, and interning as a drug & alcohol counselor while attending CSUDH. The Beacon House's multi-faceted approach of community service, counseling, peer support, and AA 12 step work creates prodigious results not common in this field. I have been afforded comprehensive reintegration support by allowing the time to attend college while focusing on my recovery so I can leave treatment as a functioning member of society. Beacon House truly is a model for effective, life stransforming treatment for alcoholics and addicts.

Truly the leading organization in the successful rehabilitation of adult men who are seeking a new life from alcoholism and/or drug addiction. So many institutions and programs are ineffective or of a very low success rate. The staff and those volunteering here really have their hearts in the welfare of the clients who come in. They really have it right here.

It is only through the Beacon House that I am where I'm at in life, I arrived at the Beacon House August 9th, 2008 emotionally a wreck and with no coping skills for life. They took me in without any question of how I was going to pay for my stay there. I was told that if I followed their directions and gave myself a chance to have a better life it was going to happened. It was a long road of ups and downs but that was only of my own doings. It wasn't until I stopped the fighting of the directions of staff that life started to get better for me. There was some kind of change in my life and I didn't want that to change and it didn't. I was giving the chance to finish the primary program and move into the second phase of the program to continue my journey there. I was able to go to collage and finish with a A.S Degree in Culinary Arts and move on to find a job and move on from the house. I am so grateful what the Beacon House has done for me, it showed me how to change my life for the better and live a better life.

There are not enough words that express my gratefulness for what the Beacon House has given me. Before I came to the house I was homeless and out of answers, all others had failed. I was a broken man. I was ready to go back to prison for the rest of my life or kill myself with my drug use. But I get here and was told that if I follow their direction and be willing to change my life would get better. I’d like to say that I followed the directions to a tee, but that is why the Beacon House is so unique they allow you to come in and make mistakes so they can help you see the change that needs to take place. And it has, today I have been sober for two years, I have my family back in my life, and I’m able to go school today to become a chef something I have always wanted to do. And some day I plan to run a non-profit kitchen to feed people in need. THANK YOU BEACON HOUSE!

I went to the Beacon House in 2008. It was a very depressing and difficult situation to deal with. Even though I was willing and worked hard I felt as though the members who had been there longer singled me out and would really make things hard on the newer individuals that were there voluntarily. Also most were there through drug court and had a lot to lose if removed from the program those people would make it hard on the ones who were there on their own free will. Overall I was very depressed while at the BH and really could not confide with anybody without total beratement. On more than one occasion my medication was being withheld by the other patients or staff. After a long weekend [Christmas] my meds were withheld and on Sunday night while at a meeting another program person was very derogatory after I received a 90 day chip and I had an emotional meltdown already in a depressive state I seriously was at an end. Subsequently the next day I was removed from the program. It was a very cult like atmosphere that is geared toward the courts approval so they can have a continuous supply of addicts whom are not very motivated to change but very motivated to program and play the game which most are very good at playing since they spent plenty of time in prison. I have been sober two years now thank God and no thanks to beacon house. They have far more dropouts than success story's. The numbers are fudged and the successes are few. Overall I would say this program works if you are afraid to go back to the pen.

Beacon House is a service that is an asset to any community. Without such services I would not be where I am today. The staff as well as the surrounding community activities are what helps to keep the clients grounded and strive to better themselves. The program is a lesson that sticks with you, it helps you to stay focused. I thought I could beat my sickness on my own. I couldn't, I tried the VA, and serveal other programs, but not until I went to Beacon House did I understand what I was facing, you see I was old when I went into my addiction, therefore I thought I knew everything, I could stop when ever I wanted to, I lied to myself and my family. I think my last resort was Beacon house and when I first went there I was a hot shot and hard headed. However once I began to listen and work the program I began to see a light at the end of the tunnel, before I was in a cave of darkness and didn't know it. I continue to live by the program I was taught at Beacon House one day at a time. I encourage the program and I know for a fact anyone that is seeking help that ends up on Beacon House door step will succeed if they believe in the program, stay focus, follow the rules and do there part to beat the addiction, will forever be grateful to Beacon House I know I am and so is my family I put them through hell. I have been clean going on 9 years and owe a very large debt to Beacon House for my well being.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been clean 8 years because of the program at Beacon House. Everthing about the program is postive.

Ensure that it was part of the CFC Combine Federal Campaign so that Beacon House could get state as well as federal funding.
