LIGHTHOUSE is a unique, non-medication-based interventional psychiatric clinic. We primarily focus on the noninvasive neuromodulation TMS treatment. Our psychiatrists only do consults for appropriateness for TMS and/or other procedural-based treatments. Hence, our psychiatrists do not manage medications nor provide chronic psychiatric care. We deliver a customized approach and solution to help individuals. Our psychiatrists will coordinate care with your prescribing doctor during your TMS treatment course.

At LIGHTHOUSE, we offer a unique synergistic approach to delivering TMS therapy to further increase the intrinsic biological effects of TMS. Only at LIGHTHOUSE, our therapists are also TMS certified and deliver a customized form of therapy to our TMS patients. Our patients have the option to combine cognitive-behavioral talk therapy with the biological effects of TMS. This produces a synergistic effect yielding greater outcome not seen at other TMS clinics. 

Our experienced therapists are very passionate about helping patients overcome their challenges and recapture their life. Our therapists specialize in individual, family, couples & marriage, and trauma/EMDR therapy. We see children/adolescents to adults.

Granite Mountain Behavioral Healthcare

 

“Transforming mind, body and spirit through community, commitment, and connection.”

 
Recover Strong.png

Our foundational program is a client-centered, strengths-based treatment approach for addiction recovery and other mental health issues. Recover Strong utilizes the neuroscience of physical movement with intense physical exercise to achieve neuroregeneration in a community setting. The effect of this process in the brain will support an improved capacity to handle stress, a reduction in symptoms of anxiety or depression, as well as improved cognition, social engagement, self-image, and self-esteem. As the foundational program in our treatment model, we have witnessed improved retention rates, which have a significant impact on addiction recovery success rates, group attendance, and community engagement, as well as minimal after hours patient vs. patient conflicts that require intervention. As a result, it's clear this program makes the community culture—increasingly more supportive.

The Recover Strong program provides clients with a unique life changing experience which highlights—as well as showcases—their resiliency and inherent personal power for addiction recovery or mental health issues. Our substance use treatment program blends these proven mental health therapies and intense physical movement in a fun and challenging environment. Why does this process produce such incredible results?
