Lightway Addiction Recovery Wellness Center for Women is a nonprofit, long-term residential recovery wellness center for women, including pregnant and postpartum women. The philosophy of care is one of holistic wellness following addiction and is focused on physical, mental and spiritual recovery for women whose primary struggle has been addiction to substances. Our goal is to equip our guests with tools for life-long recovery and support the women we serve, including their entire family, as they transform the most important relationships: with God, self and others. 


OUR MISSION: Lightway Recovery Wellness Center is a safe, supportive, Christ-centered recovery environment where women are treated with dignity and respect and experience healing of body, mind and spirit while gaining the tools to maintain lifelong recovery.


 We believe innovation is essential to change the way we treat addiction and mental health issues. We also believe peer support is a crucial part of the continuum of care.


For our team of volunteers and employees, serving our community is not just “a job” but a passion. Many of us consider it our ministry calling.  We are a team that strives for excellence in all we do as part of destigmatizing the chronic condition of addiction, treating people with dignity and respect.  We support each other so we can serve our fellow travelers on the pathway to recovery, wherever they may be on it.  Our core values are what we live by and we like to laugh and have fun on the journey.  If this sounds like a natural habitat for you, read on!
