Mission and Vision
It is our mission to provide quality sober living to chemically dependent men and to educate and assist people with recovery from drug & alcohol addiction. We believe that drug and alcohol addictions are progressive, chronic and potentially fatal diseases.
We are a fully self-supporting, non-profit organization. The ability to pay is secondary. The Lantern does not rely on government funding, rather we concentrate our revenue strategies on private donations and community support to assure no one will be turned away due to financial issues. We believe that everyone, regardless of their ability to pay, deserves access to care.
Although every resident shares the same disease when it comes to addiction, The Lantern recognizes that every individual has their particular focus area that needs to be addressed. Residents are treated with the utmost compassion and care rather than being regarded as just another number or statistic.
Our community is facing an epidemic of drug addiction, in fact, the epidemic is so severe that drug overdose deaths are now the leading cause of accidental death in America, at nearly 44,000 per year. To be sure, we are facing a growing public health crisis. Addiction is powerful, and it is relentless, but it can be treated and resources to help are available. The Lantern's program is designed to provide our community with these resources by offering long-term residential care at absolutely no cost to the men who ask for the help which they all deserve.
The primary goal of The Lantern is to help with recovery from addiction and to continue to provide a support system to these people and their families. The Lantern provides service and rehabilitation through long-term residential care that include discussion groups and 12 step meetings. Long-term residential care has been identified as one of the most effective methods of maintaining individual recovery from drug and alcohol addictions.
Our Vision is to be a residential sober living facility accommodating those who think they might have a problem, who are in their addiction and want help and then to be able to come back for follow-up care and carry on the tradition of a clean and sober life.
