Who We Are
Recovery Lighthouse began as a drop-in center where people could go seek recovery. With the support of their families and community, co-founders, Adriatik Likcani and Douglas Quirmbach modeled the drop-in center after a Mediterranean Coffee House where individuals could talk with peers and professionals about solutions to their problems in a safe environment without an appointment. By offering training and professional development to peer mentors, we continue to maintain our original mission while focusing on evidence-based and spiritually-based recovery support services. Since 2006, Recovery Lighthouse Inc. has grown to include the Women's Recovery Program, LIME Tree, and additional outpatient recovery services such as recovery coaching, counseling and resource assistance.
A community where people do not have to suffer from addiction-where they can get the help they need to overcome their addictions, rebuild their families and become productive members of society.
To provide resources and support that enables community members suffering from substance abuse to build and sustain their recovery.
Our objective is to assist you along your path of recovery. We cannot change you, and are not about forcing people to change, but we can help you along your journey to figure out the best way to get to where you want to be with your life. We will listen to your story and share ours with you. Together, we can make a difference.
