BEACON SOBER LIVING
Recovery Support Services
The substance abuse industry is inundated with an overwhelming number of options for treatment, not all of which may be viable for cultivating long-term sobriety. Deciphering which path to take can seem like an impossible task, but with nearly two decades of experience, Beacon Sober Living staff are available to help navigate what may work best for you or your loved one.
We are founded on the idea that recovery doesn’t have to be a one-size fits-all model. Every person seeking to live a life free of substances will be presented with a plan that makes their recovery possible and sustainable.
What We Do
The free consultation is the first step in this process. This is an open exchange of all necessary information required to build an Action Plan for recovery. This plan will be both achievable and sustainable.
All of the following information will be determined during the consultation:
The need for an intervention
This phase of the process involves establishing the resources an individual will need to build lasting recovery. This could include:

Throughout the recovery process we ensure that families receive support to make the best choices regarding their loved ones.
We guide families through their own recovery process and connect them with resources necessary to rebuild their family unit on a solid foundation.
At Beacon Sober Living, we provide comprehensive care and levels of support for you and your loved one's recovery from the very first phone call through graduation of our program and beyond.
We have found that Alumni of our program continue to stay involved with current guests, engage in volunteer and service work opportunities, and are active within their respective recovery communities.
