3) What exactly is the ALOH program?

The ALOH program is a support group system for families in crisis. 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. A Light of Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization.

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 strive to inspire, encourage, support and celebrate personal growth and spiritual development for families, youth, and young adults in recovery. ALOH is a fellowship of youth and parents alike, coming together to share their experience, strength and hope with love and understanding among peers.
