Women's Addiction Rehab & Recovery

Elisha and Tori in a meeting

Holistic. Empowering. Supportive.

Did we mention no cost?

Yes, due to the generosity of this faithful community, Guiding Light’s innovative and successful residential recovery program is now available to women struggling with addiction, hopelessness, homelessness, and relationships at NO COST to participants.

Our vision is to awaken the woman with addictions to the possibility of becoming successful, independent, and spiritually transformed. Our goal for women is lifelong recovery and a new way of being in relationship with the world.

Guiding Light Recovery is an intensive residential recovery program designed to give women structure and the opportunity to engage in change. Our four-to-six-month inpatient residential recovery program combines life coaching, therapy, support groups, spiritual direction, family support, community, and resources to equip women to stay sober and become the best versions of themselves.

Program Requirements

What are the intake parameters of Guiding Light's drug and alcohol inpatient rehab program?

  • Your blood alcohol content must be zero, and you cannot test positive for opiates or benzodiazepines. Any questions, please call us.
  • You must be physically able to work and exercise. This means anyone receiving SSI or SSD is not a good fit for this program.
  • While having a criminal record (misdemeanors and/or felonies) has little impact on program eligibility, individuals with violent felonies committed in the last 3 years will not be accepted. 
  • It is preferable that legal issues are fully resolved before entering rehab, but we are willing to discuss details of pending court cases/legal issues on a case-by-case basis.

Program Overview

Guiding Light’s residential recovery program experience creates a dynamic culture of community, peer support, and accountability with programming in the following four areas:

  • Spiritual engagement
  • Psycho-social education & practice
  • Coaching & therapy
  • Physical wellness

We strongly encourage women that come into the program to think of themselves as taking part in a long-term commitment to their recovery and an entirely different way of being. This starts with something as simple as a commitment to make your bed each morning. 

Due to the generosity of those who support Guiding Light, the only cost is a commitment to change. All your needs are met while in our residential recovery program.

There is nothing holding you back from taking this step into the unknown and seeing what is possible for your life living sober, free, and healthy.

Program Resources

Ruth & Esther's House

REH is a community of sober living homes. As part of Guiding Light’s values, we are committed to clean, well-maintained environments at all our homes. These houses are quality, affordable housing. They are an option for recovery clients to move into after completing programming at Guiding Light. 

Women work full-time, pay a modest rent, participate in support groups and community meetings, and help out with yard work and property maintenance. It’s a tight-knit community that offers encouragement, support, and accountability. It’s the next step in the process of life-long recovery and new way of being in relationship with the world.
