The Beacon House has been helping my brother-in-law to become a productive member of society. Without this house he would still be homeless abusing drugs or maybe even dead. This house is great place for such of people who wants to change in life and be able to help others who are in the same situation.

The Beacon House has helped me become a productive member of society. Without this house I would still be homeless abusing alcohol or maybe even dead. The house has taught me to give back, volunteer, and help others.

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.

When I first came to the Beacon House I was suicidal and hopeless. I saw no way of getting out of my predicament. I needed something different and was willing to try the Beacon House program of action. The moment I arrived I was welcomed by men who were offering me clothes and food. For the first time in my life I felt safe. Through the process of the program I started to gain hope and see life in a different light. I was able to participate in community activities where I had a sense of purpose. The genuine care and love this house has demonstrated towards me is undeniable. I am now an intern at the house and attending Cal State Dominguez Hills this fall to pursue a career in counseling. I have found God and see his works daily. This house is nothing short of a miracle. I continuously see men recover from hopeless states and grow towards an active lifestyle where they help other men. I want to thank this house for the opportunity it has given me.
