Programs & Services

Lighthouse Behavioral Health Hospital provides comprehensive, individualized treatment programs for individuals suffering from mental illness, an emotional crisis and/or addiction issues. Our programs provide a highly structured schedule throughout the day. Patients attend therapy and educational groups several times a day, participate in recreational therapy and leisure activity groups, see the physician for medication checks and are allowed time for reflection and keeping a journal. Each morning patients set a daily goal and in the evening report on the achievement of that goal.

With the assistance of the treatment team, each patient develops individual goals focusing on specific issues, which are monitored, reviewed and changed in response to a patient’s progress. The overall goal of the programs is to respond to the individual needs of each patient while bringing about stabilization and reduction of the symptoms that result from having a psychiatric illness or a substance abuse problem, all in a safe and structured environment. Secondary goals are to provide education and guidance in learning basic coping skills and preparing the resident for a successful transition to a lower level of care that maintains a high level of support and allows for increased independence.
