  • 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
    Dr. Adedapo OduwoleMedical 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.

Worst place to go get help. Sent there cause I went off my Xanax alone - got put on some crap meds. Dr. Ripa the director kept me there 4 - 10 days for what? The pills didn’t help no therapy - people took my clothes, & was court ordered by a Medicare judge to be released lol 😂 what a joke - only to be back in the Darlington facility a week later for the same thing cause Ripa failed to do her job !!!

The nurses and techs are kind as long as your good. The dr’s are awful. They don’t care about you individually. The nurses are scared of the dr’s. They do not handle diabetics or individuals with special needs or disabilities well. They will give you multiple shots in a day very quickly without trying to de-escalate the situation. Their rules are extreme. It’s cramped on the unit. But the sad thing is so many staff members know they’re not truly being helped, they tell them if you have better care on the outside then get out as fast as you can.

Rude hateful staff except for one or two nurses. When released the same day someone had taken my debit card number and made purchases on it. Staff took me off a controlled substance cold turkey. No tapering. They lock the phone in a closet and you are allowed only one five minute call a day. Worst place ever. NEVER pass on calls. I hope this facility gets shut down. I pray you do.
