California Murder Spree Raises Questions of Mental Health System, Warning Signs

“At some point in our lives – and probably at many points – each one of us will face situations that are painful, disappointing, even devastating,” said Dr. Karl Benzio, founder, executive director, and a psychiatrist at Lighthouse Network. “Whether it’s broken or non-existent relationships, business or personal failure, or the betrayal or death of a loved one, painful experiences and situations are unavoidable. The only thing over which we have any control is our decision on how we respond to life’s onslaughts. Some people respond by denying a problem exists, some by turning to prescription medication or illegal substances as an unhealthy coping mechanism, and some, sadly, by giving into anger and rage until these spill over into harmful actions against themselves or others.”  
A Testimony of a Changed Life

“Lighthouse Network brought our family so much peace by helping our son get the right kind of treatment for alcohol and drug abuse that was also affordable. Where can a parent turn to trust the care of their precious child in such a life-threatening circumstance? We can’t thank the Lighthouse Network team enough for the blessing they were to our family and our son. They were so flexible and accommodating with our son and his recovery process. We are so grateful for all they did to help him live life free from addictions. Thank you, Lighthouse, from the bottom of our hearts.”
