The Anaheim Lighthouse saved me. They gave me the tools to prepare myself for the outside world to stay sober. The staff was amazing and my well being was their # priority. I have been out of rehab for 1 month and they call me weekly to check on my progress. I learned so much from The Lighthouse and I owe my life to them.

Overall it was a good experience. When I came into the lighthouse I was feeling worthless and hopeless, like I was certain I didn’t deserve sobriety, but by the time that I completed I was feeling hopeful and believed I could stay sober. It gave me a solid foundation, one which I so desperately needed

I admitted myself into treatment at Lighthouse and was greeted kindly by the staff. I remember feeling a little confused by what I was supposed to do or the general rules of the entire complex at first. The support staff were kind and forthcoming with information when in the know. The counselors were helpful in providing guidance. The group sessions were repetitive and scheduled throughout the day and evening. The gym and other off site activities provide something to look forward to. My therapist was amazing and the counselors are experienced and helpful. I would definitely recommend this facility to friends and family. Sobriety has changed my outlook on life, and what a relief. The Lighthouse was a good place to start this journey.

Disappointing family program, despite release being signed no calls returned from counselor about setting up session. Even spoke with director of program and still no call on day 11 of my sons stay in facility . Their website claims that they provide these services, director confirmed services but no service provided .

Thanks for your review. Family group is a critical part of treatment and we make every effort to include all family members when the client consents to release private information. We apologized for your less than perfect experience.

If your a Kaiser patient this is NOT the place to come for Detox-they only give you three days and your out-no meds to help with the withdrawal once your three days is up-you beg to see a Kaiser Dr-which is like impossible to get an appointment in a timely manner-it is not set up with an appointment for you once your out of detox-your might wait for weeks to get in-other insurances that are taken here are much more helpful to the patient-but that is not explained to you at the time I paid my $3500.00 payment-so POOR CARE what can I say

Groups focus on individual needs, Staff excellent and very helpful, very well structured with an emphasis on individual needs. The program is not forced on you. You are able to work at a pace comfortable to you with an emphasis on 12 step programs. You are exposed to not only AA but other programs that are recovery based.

Windstone/Lighthouse is whereby jail inmates are allowed rehab over jail time. These jail inmates are not interested in rehab, rarely attend meetings...disturbing the legitimate patients and are given many special status. The other residents of Lighthouse are generally taxpayers, private individuals and health insurance referrals who are generally trying to get better. In my stay at the Lighthouse the legitimate residents were all outraged.

Official Facility Response
We have reviewed this client's file and felt compelled to respond to his review. The Lighthouse does NOT operate a criminal justice program "whereby jail inmates are allowed rehab over jail time". The Lighthouse is a private pay and insurance pay facility only. We are not certain what this client is referring to when saying, ....."disturbing legitimate patients and are given special status." As previously stated, there are NO INMATES at the Lighthouse. I think it important to refer to the numerous other favorable reviews to get a true picture of the Lighthouse. Based on history and current behavior, this particular client had no intention of receiving rehabilitation.

N/A
This facility is very well kept and clean. The outside is pretty but they still need a lot of work with organization. First off they have \"support staff\" and \"drivers\" running the groups. There should be a licensed counselor running the groups about relapse prevention or sharing our stories. There is no structure at all. Groups attendance is not mandatory. If someone has a headache or stomach ache they just go and watch TV. The detox women\'s house needs major cleaning. The bathroom and bedrooms were not cleaned once in the 10 day stay I had here. Would only recommend if you are looking for an easy 28 day stay and are not serious about staying sober.

Most of the staff who are in direct contact with the residents are kind and caring. They accommodate you seeing doctors outside of the facility. The doctor affiliated with the facility is awful. My blood work incomplete and I was never contacted by anyone in tyhe office to inform me of extremely high total cholestrol and Triglycerine. Dr. stated that it was over looked.I was never examined by him but my report indicate that he exmained me upon my arrival. He does not have any examination room room in the office that he visits the patients from the Lighthouse. He sees about 17 patients in 23 minutes. The food is very unhealthy and there are no exercise regimen. I was under alot of unnecceray stress put on me by the Dr. and the staff who was the Liaison between the docto and the patients.

Excellent staff that truly cares about the clients and understand addiction. Very safe and well maintained environment. A well organized program of treatment options. Could mix up the options for outside meeting more, also offer a treatment paths for spirtual/religous growth. I feel very blessed to have had the oppurtunity to participate in this program. This program sticks to the correct principles of recovery without the too much flash and fluff. This is not a spa, its real treatment for addiction developed by people who understand what it takes to find true freedom from addiction by getting to the root causes in each individual that left untreated have led the individual to a life of fear, and self medicating practices.

Has staff that are euipped to deal with substance abuse issues and can offer amazing advice and guidance due to have gone through the same things as most of us. the staff genuinly cares for us and our recovery. im amazed on how awesome the program is and how much ive changed during my stay there. i would recommend this program to anyone who has drug problems. the lighthouse changed my life honestly there an amazing problems i have no complaints the program offers many groups and lots of therapy that helps dig deep and find the underlining issue or issues of why we get high..and offers lots of resources and tools on how to live life clean. they offer amazing support that helps get you through the hard time and helps restore family's and broken relationships. i will forever be grateful to the lighthouse they changed my life..if you have a drug problem or you no someone who does this program will change your life. its a medical detox and treatment center as is equipped to deal with all substance abuse. if you need help call the light house they'll help get you clean and the provide resources to help get you in sober livings and gives you work leads and they provide transportation for all appointmens and if you need to be picked up to come to the program when your first coming in they will drive to pick you up. its an amazing program

I wish my son would have stayed longer. He is doing great now but I can see things that he could have continued to work on if he stayed longer. They also worked with our financial situation and let him come earlier because we were having issues with his insurance. He still has his hard times but overall he is doing great! Family involvement, individualized treatment, aftercare set up, and motivation given were all great.
