"When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen."


Welcome to the web site for the Lighthouse Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Program. Our programs are for individuals struggling with substance use and mental health issues.

This combination of substance abuse and emotional challenges has traditionally been treated independently, but research shows that the best results are achieved by an integrated approach – treating those two co-occuring areas in combination.

A division of Northland Counseling Services, Lighthouse programs operate out of the Northland Counseling Maple Grove office.

Many of our clients are referred to us by social services organizations, probation officers, the court system or other treatment programs. But we also accept individuals who refer themselves into our program.
