Description

A Light of Hope (ALOH) is a counseling center and support group system for local families in crisis. We provide support for Santa Clarita Valley youth and young adults 14-26 years of age struggling with substance abuse and/or self-destructive actions or behaviors. We emphasize a 12-Step approach to family recovery, as well as the development and maintenance of an Alternative Peer Group (APG), providing a safe, sober yet fun and welcoming experience for young people and their families as an alternative to the dysfunctional and destructive environment they may be involved in such as: ■Drugs ■Alcohol ■Depression ■Cutting ■Sexual Abuse ■Behavioral Issues The families that come to ALOH have many different needs. Many find themselves hopeless and lost in dealing with the issues that they face as a family, and are looking for new approaches and solutions. At A Light of Hope they find a safe and caring environment with understanding and support to begin the recovery process for their family. They are welcomed with love and a non-condemning atmosphere of acceptance as we provide them with education, tools and support for a healthy recovery in the family. A Light of Hope (ALOH) is a partnership of people joined in the fight against destructive forces we are challenged with every single day. Through love, support and acceptance, parents can find an end to isolation and fear and discover a life of hope and freedom. We offer groups and programs to assist in personal and family recovery utilizing support groups combined with an Alternative Peer Group (APG) support system. In support meetings parents can learn new ways of reacting to their substance abusing and/or self-destructive teenagers or young adults. Many parents transform their own lives as well in this process. The young people's support meetings focus on pertinent topics that challenge old ineffective ways of thinking and coping. We emphasize the exploration and development of new tools and new coping skills based upon the 12-Step model of recovery. It is a huge relief not to feel alone or isolated. Listening and feeling understood is a bridge to becoming open and empowered to make better choices for themselves. In working together, the group can offer solutions to common problems and build a greater understanding and awareness of recovery from the effects of substance abuse and/or other self-destructive actions and behaviors. We emphasize the development and maintenance of an Alternative Peer Group (APG) support system providing a safe, sober yet fun and welcoming experience for young people and their families as an alternative to the dysfunctional and destructive environment they may be involved in....
