About us

Shining a light on the unseen

Founded on the hope for a brighter tomorrow, we are committed to recovery through affordable and high-quality care for all. Our evidence-based approach ensures that every individual, along with their families, is supported throughout the entire journey.

Lightshare provided me with the tools I needed to be a good mother and to provide a safe and stable home for my daughter. I learned how to cope with addiction, and was able to give birth to a healthy baby girl. I am forever grateful.
