Beacon House is the oldest treatment center west of the Mississippi. Founded in 1958, we’ve occupied the same historic mansion in a residential neighborhood in Pacific Grove, California, since 1961. Our classic, quirky, stylish, fully renovated Victorian lives up to its name: it stands as a beacon of hope for anyone who wants to live a life without alcohol and drugs.
We’ve welcomed people into our safe, kind, loving space to share our knowledge about recovery for over sixty years. We combine the latest evidence-based clinical practices with our rich history and experience to create the best of both worlds. At Beacon House, 21st century innovation coexists with decades of tradition. If our walls could speak, they’d tell stories of hope, resilience, and the healing power of the human spirit. People come to Beacon House to rebuild their lives. When they go back out into the world, their light shines bright. While our walls can’t speak, our alumni can: they carry our message of hope for a future free from the cycles of addiction.
Detox is the process of removing the harmful chemicals of addiction from your body so you can begin recovery with a clean slate.
Co-ed programs offer 24/7 support and monitoring in our historic Victorian mansion on the Monterey Peninsula.
Full-day and half-day programs offer immersive treatment five days a week, while you continue to live at home.
California surf legend, three-time Mavericks winner, and Beacon House alumnus Darryl Virostko co-facilitates our experiential surf program along with Noah Greenberg, LCSW. Flea believes surfing helps people in recovery get out of their comfort zone, push their limits, and reminds them that they’re capable of accomplishing anything they put their mind to. The most important part of surfing, though, is not about the waves, the water, or the surfboard: it’s about reminding people in recovery they can have fun without alcohol and drugs.
We invite your family – biological or chosen – to participate in the recovery process. When families understand what you’re going through, they can help support your new way of living.
We get out in nature and participate in fun, challenging, and enriching outdoor activities every day. Programs include hiking, surfing, golfing, birding, and equine therapy (horses).
One-on-one sessions with your counselor or therapist help you explore the root causes of your addiction, set recovery goals, and learn tools to live a life free from alcohol and drugs.
Addiction disrupts your life, damages relationships, and affects your ability to thrive. We don’t treat the addiction, we treat you. Addiction is a chronic medical condition that responds to treatment. We help you develop the skills and tools necessary for long-term recovery.
