Areas of Focus
12-Step

The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    Dr. Adedapo Oduwole - Medical Director for Addiction Services

    Dr. Adedapo Oduwole is the most recent addition to the Lighthouse Care Center medical staff, coming from Mercy Hospital System in Janesville, Wis., in 2009. Dr. Oduwole is well-versed in multiple areas of adult psychiatry but is most passionate about addictions work, and serves as the Medical Director for Addiction Services at Lighthouse. Dr. Oduwole has several strong beliefs and guiding principles about addictions that serve the clients he sees well. First, he believes that each client should be provided an individualized treatment plan that clearly focuses on that persons most pressing issue(s) at the time of admission into the Lighthouse. Just as no two fingerprints are alike, no two clients are alike and so each deserves a treatment plan specifically tailored to his or her needs.
