The Lighthouse offers hope for the holidays

By December 1, 2023

USA (MNN) — For many Americans, the end of the year brings images of happy families gathered around a Christmas tree, big dinners, holiday music, and cozy fires. For others, the holidays can be a much darker time.

According to the CDC, the most dangerous times of the year for drug-and-alcohol-related deaths are December, January, and March. The Lighthouse offers hope.

“Our 28-bed men’s addiction recovery biblical program is a result of our care and love for people,” Executive Director Brandon Bower says.

“We welcome men from all over the country who are struggling with life-altering addictions. We love them through the Gospel, help them get back on their feet, and put things like addiction aside.”

After assessing a person’s needs, care managers guide the individual through a holistic recovery process founded on Scripture. Learn more here.

“We have an exercise center here where the guys can get physical exercise. That helps to clear their mind of all the substances they’ve been putting in,” Bower says.

“We also have a licensed chef on staff [who] serves healthy meals. That helps to clear out all of the garbage [participants have] been ingesting.”

Life transformation is a common result.

“It’s amazing to see someone who’s so broken and sick start to smile again, reconnect with family, and have hope for the first time in a long time,” Bower says.

If someone in your life struggles with addiction, reach out to The Lighthouse. You can connect on the website or through Facebook.

“Boundaries are important, but having someone in your life helping you through this process is important as well. If someone needs help, our phone number is 260-255-6413,” Bower says.
