Pacific Grove, Ca, January 29 , 2018 – Drug and alcohol treatment center, the Beacon House is proud to announce that 2018 marks its 60th Anniversary. Established in 1958 by Mary Clark Ross and Dr. Donald Taugher, colleagues of Marty Mann, founder of the National Council on Alcoholism (now the NCADD); the mission at Beacon House still holds true today, treating the human spirit with dignity; and utilizing the latest research and modalities that support the 12 - Step model of recovery.

In the early 1960’s Beacon House received significant generous financial support from Samuel F.B. Morse, founder of Pebble Beach. Morse, a well-known philanthropist, and visionary, helped to further establish this invaluable resource. Today, the Beacon House is a successful not-for-profit organization, supported in-part by the generosity of donors and alumni.

“It is truly an honor to be a part of this dynamic team and we thank our community and alumni for entrusting us to carry the message for 60 years,” commented Phyllis Meagher, Beacon House CEO/Executive Director. “Our entire organization remains committed to growing our innovative resources and comprehensive treatment options and will continue our mission of helping those struggling with addiction achieve a lifetime of recovery.”

Throughout the year, the Beacon House will be holding a series of special events ranging from benefit concerts and lectures at the Sunset Center in Carmel, to alumni gatherings and celebrations for the entire recovery community and beyond. In the meantime, all are invited to sign an online guestbook to send well wishes or personal reflections related to individual experiences at Beacon House via
