About this location

Located in the village of Bussage, in Gloucestershire, The Lighthouse is 5-bedded transitional recovery service for females over the age of 13. This provision is part of Priory’s transitional living services for young people and young adults, offering individuals the best possible care in their recovery journey.

The Lighthouse is a large detached house, which offers a viable alternative to a hospital or secure setting. It achieves this through a high ratio of care, which enables a robust and proactive approach to risk management, whilst supporting people to engage with meaningful activity in the community.
