About The Lighthouse Bali

The Lighthouse Bali
A beacon of light, offering hope and recovery

The Lighthouse Bali offers private, one-on-one, recovery programs for those clients seeking a high level of anonymity and personalized treatment. Utilizing a proven program of success with dedicated specialists, while living amongst the natural beauty of Bali, our clients receive individualized care to overcome the grips of addiction.

We offer a complete holistic approach to recovery from alcohol and chemical dependency. Our tailor-made programs help the client connect with their individual strengths and weaknesses, helping them progress to a solid program of self-awareness and recovery. Bali is world-renowned for its serene beauty and incredible spirituality. The “Island of The Gods” is an ideal place to embrace one’s inner strength, while learning important, life changing, tools.

We provide our clients with a safe, comfortable, effective experience, arranging all of your transportation needs and coordinating visa requirements for those seeking an extended stay. The Lighthouse Bali provides a client-centered approach for those addicted to alcohol and other substances.

Our programs are aligned with the Balinese philosophy of “Tri Hita Karana”, which brings together the realms of the spirit, the human world and nature. We provide a balanced program of recovery that addresses the three facets of the clients’ illness – body, mind and spirit. Clients receive medical treatment, individual counseling sessions, educational programs, wellness programs and recreational activities. Our qualified counselors and support staff members come with years of experience in the field of chemical dependency and alcohol treatment.

Our program aims to empower the client to embrace their reality in an environment that fosters self-awareness. We encourage clients to build self-esteem, a sense of security, and feelings of acceptance and harmony while overcoming addiction. We provide honest and direct feedback, but do so in a caring and non-judgmental way. The client will receive a personal support worker, private education counseling and private drug and alcohol counseling, along with a variety of recovery based tools that foster and embrace the opportunity for true self-awareness.

The goal is to allow the client an opportunity to see themselves, as well as their relationships with others, from a new and clear perspective. The client will learn about accepting personal responsibility, identifying old self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors and gaining a true sense of self with integrity, as well as humility. Providing our client with the means, ability and courage to become a happy and healthy member of society is also the goal of our program – allowing our client to discover a new freedom – a new way of life.

In addition to treating the alcoholic and addict, we also integrate their family into our program whenever possible. We recognize the significance of the relationships between our clients and their families and the critical need to reestablish trust and harmony. Working with the involvement of family and loved ones helps all those touched by the disease.

Our programs are aligned with the Balinese philosophy of

The “Tri Hita Karana”,

which brings together the realms of the spirit, the human world and nature.

Who We Are

At The Lighthouse Bali, our mission is to help those afflicted with alcoholism and chemical dependency to understand and embrace a new (clean) way of life. We aim to achieve this by providing a comfortable, serene environment, through which our client-centered program enables self-respect, acceptance, and personal responsibility for ones choices.

We offer not only private recovery treatment programs, but we also participate in community outreach programs, providing educational workshops that detail the realities of alcoholism and substance abuse within Indonesia.

We work closely with local non-profit organizations, community associations, social groups and others in an effort to reach as many people as possible (both local and international).

The Lighthouse Bali is privileged and honored to work not only with alcoholics and addicts, but also with family members, providing programs and services to those who are willing. Research shows that with proper treatment and support, lasting family recovery  has become a reality for millions of people around the world!

Enjoying an international network of professionals, we are also pleased to refer those clients who seek a group treatment facility experience an introduction to primary care treatment centers. We only refer to centers we have personal experience with and know to be professional with a high success rate.

Here at The Lighthouse Bali, we are firm believers that alcoholism and drug addiction fall under the category of “disease” rather than disability; it is not a failure of will-power or strength of character. With this in mind, we believe the most effective way to manage the disease of addiction is to treat it as a healthcare issue.

What is a disease?
Merriam Webster Dictionary defines Disease as “an illness that affects a person, animal, or plant: a condition that prevents the body or mind from working normally; a problem that a person, group, organization, or society has and cannot stop”; and illness as “An unhealthy condition of body or mind: sickness”.

Evolution of Addiction as a Disease:
The World Health Organization acknowledged alcoholism as a serious medical problem in 1951, and the American Medical Association declared alcoholism a treatable illness in 1956. The American Psychiatric Association began to use the term disease to describe alcoholism in 1965, and the American Medical Association followed in 1966. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) has included addiction and “Alcoholism” as an independent classification since the DSM III (1980). Within the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), the first classification of substance-related problems was published in 1967 (in ICD-8). As with many concepts and theoretical models in the treatment field, the disease concept was originally applied to “alcoholism” and has been expanded to an “addiction of substances”, along with a number of other addictive behaviors (such as gambling and compulsive over-eating). The “disease of addiction” is viewed as primary, progressive and ultimately fatal if not addressed and treated.
