The Beacon House Association of San Pedro has helped many men, families, and the community over the past 40 years. Their high success rate is achieved by the social model, peer to peer style program. They speak the language of the heart. Men who arrive at Beacon House are broken men, bankrupt of any dignity, self respect, love for life or spirit. They are given a second chance in life, learn to live on life's terms, and become respectable, responsible members of society.
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.
I have worked with many recovery centers most of them for profit. I have never seen such a group of dedicated staff as well as residents, all working as a group with one goal in mind and that is to help the clients and residents come back a place in their lives where they can get back on track and live a productive as well as educated life. It would be an honor to work with this group of dedicated men once again I did a stop smoking and life enhancement program for the facility once a month with great success, but as with many non-profits they had to allocate their resources to other areas. This program is a cut above and works very well because they think outside the box and that make their program work. In order for them to keep such an outstanding program alive, funding is the only way they will be able to be around to keep changing lives for the better.
