It is our goal at Lubbock Lighthouse to provide high quality methadone and subutex treatment services to help with problems of opiate and other substance abuse. Our staff is committed to caring and promoting dignity and self-respect in and for each and every patient.
As a licensed outpatient treatment program, we provide you with the opportunity to obtain treatment and embrace recovery with the least amount of disruption in your life. Your treatment is personalized from intake to discharge, to assure that you receive necessary medical and counseling attention. As a result, you can continue to receive support from the community and your family.
Our staff consists of professionals who are trained in the treatment of addiction. We believe in and encourage our patients to become involved in the 12- Step Programs of AA., NA, MA, Al-Anon & Nar-Anon while believing that all treatment approaches work for those who work them. Clients who feel more comfortable working another path of recovery are encouraged to do so. Family participation is highly encouraged because addiction affects each member.
Recovery is a challenging adventure and the staff at Lubbock Lighthouse Methadone and Subutex Treatment Services is here to help you overcome the pitfalls on the way. The staff works as a team to provide the tools that you need to build a satisfying and healthy life. While working within the framework of state and federal opiate treatment guidelines, we make a strong effort to individualize treatment approaches and meet the client where he or she is in their recovery, support their efforts in recovery, and when appropriate to assist them to get off methadone or subutex and remain drug free.

No, but we refer persons with Medicaid to Lubbock Starcare which does have Medicaid slots.
What if you do not have insurance do you have help available for payment?
No, we are private pay only (currently $15/day which covers individual counseling, the medication, visits with our psychiatrist, nursing services, etc. Call us and we can refer to state sponsored slots at another agency if they are available.

No, but Lubbock Starcare may accept medicare and other insurance options.
My husband is in need of urgent attention with his drug addiction. He is on meth and can’t get off of it alone. It is making him go through withdrawals that put things in his head and say things he don’t mean. We do not have any kind of medical insurance. Please can you help my husband?
We treat opiate dependencies and only treat methamphetamine dependencies if they are co-occuring with the opiate problem. If he is in West Texas I would recommend that he get an assessment through the Starcare OSAR (800-687-7581) that tracks state sponsored inpatient treatment beds across the state. Time away from methamphetamines is important and inpatient treatment assists with that.
I’m needing help to stop my opiate addiction, I’ve done it cold turkey a few years ago but have got back on them and the reason I don’t stop again is the withdrawals make me miserable. I currently work full time but do not have any insurance, just needing information on what to bring on a first visit please
You need to bring a valid state picture ID such as a drivers license, and the initial fee of $150 for methadone treatment or $275 for subutex treatment which includes the psychiatrist visit, initial blood work, TB test, assessment by a licensed counselor, and the first week of medication with either methadone or subutex. The doctor is here on Tuesday and Thursday mornings but it is best to get the assessment on Monday or Wednesday for the following day prior to seeing the doctor – so call 806-744-3419 to arrange for the assessment.

Rene, we have talked by phone, and I met you at the Voices Coalition, but I wanted to go ahead and post this so folks needing your services in Lubbock would know about what you offer. You also are free to bring by any literature that we can post for our clients as they may know of folks who need your services.
Ive been and IV meth user since begining of march. Now im tryingnto stop but im having a really hard time soing it. I work to help support wife and our daughter and need help with detoxing an dgetting clean without skipping a beat at work. HELP! the withdrawl or comedoen is too much tk handle. I also have been a pain pill user for last couple yrs.. maybe 5 to be honest im sick idk what to do
We can treat the pain pill addiction with counseling and methadone or subutex as medication support, and we will work with you on your IV methamphetamine problem. Treatment works if you work it. It is not just about medications although they can help significantly, and the methadone or subutex will block the opiate withdrawal so you can continue working. An average of 85-90% of our clients work a steady job or go to school. Call us if you need more information about the program.
My sister, we recently found out she’s addicted to Tramadols and we are wanting to look into getting help as she is saying she cannot get off of them due to the withdrawals. She doesn’t have insurance or anything to help pay…what’s the best option or how much would this be to help her?
Depending on how much she is abusing and for how long, we can help her if she will call. If her tolerance is relatively low, Subutex can work well, and Lubbock Starcare may have some open indigency slots for Subutex treatment. We are private pay only, but we are happy to give her best options if she will call.

If he is addicted to methamphetamines alone it is unlikely that the withdrawals would cause seizures but he may have a cooccurring addiction to alcohol or benzodiazapines which could cause seizures. If he is willing to go to treatment then make an appointment with the Regional OSAR (Outreach, Screening, Assessment, and Referral) which is at Lubbock Starcare 766-0310 and say he has a methamphetamine addiction. They track available indigent treatment beds across the state and do the assessment to get him admitted. Managed Care Center locally has the state contract for indigency, but Serenity in Abilene, Basin Detox, and others are options in the area. We are licensed to treat persons with long term opiate dependencies and even though we can accept folks with secondary dependencies on other drugs, all our clients have to have primary opiate dependencies. You are welcome to call one of our counselors for more information.
I need to get back on methadone asap but my do is expired can y’all still help?
I am not sure what you are talking about with “do” unless you mean doctor’s order. We don’t treat pain patients here but we are licensed to treat persons with opiate addictions using methadone. We are a treatment center with many treatment requirements (individualized counseling, random UA’s, assessments by our psychiatrist and by licensed counselors, etc) and not just a place to get medicated with methadone. If you are interested in treatment give us a call and we will give you more information about what we offer at Lubbock Lighthouse.
My granddaughter is a heroin addict andgoes to a methadone clinic in Denver. I want to help her kick it by bringing her to the Lubbock area, I need some guidance before she arrives. Tell me about the cost and how to get it started
Give us a call and we will be happy to give you more information about what we offer and about reasonable expectations. Methadone is primarily a maintenance drug and although detox is doable it usually only works if the person has done the inner and outer recovery work necessary to sustain a drug free lifestyle which can take up to several years in some cases. It didn’t take the person six months to get addicted, so getting free of long term cooccurring addictive patterns usually takes lots of support and a strong intention to make their lives work independent of illicit drugs. Methadone can help significantly in making changes, but the person must work the program and get honest with themselves and others, cut their ties with active drug dealers and users, and get productive patterns of behavior and support systems in place.
My mother lives in Denison Texas and I’m trying to move her to the Lubbock area. She goes to a methadone clinic there. Can she transfer or will it be a complete restart? Thank u.
If she has had no break in treatment and is on their program currently, then her counselor can call or she can call our program and get the transfer procedures. If she has had a break in treatment, then she will have to start as a new patient according to federal regulations.
I Mr Hell bad so I get sick on subtext plz ne!p . I have. Mediaid
I think you are saying you get sick on subutex or suboxone but that can be due to having opiates in your system and trying to take suboxone. In any case, if you have medicaid I would suggest you apply to Lubbock Starcare Methadone program at 806-766-0310 since they take Medicaid and probably have Medicaid slots available. You probably will have to go through an OSAR assessment to get into their program so listen on the call for “assessment”.
My son is addicted to opiates and benz for a long time, he is very depressed and always angry lately. Is your program inpatient or outpatient? He needs help but says he cannot do inpatient, because of his dog. The last time he was in the hospital the dog got sick with diarrhea in the house. My son suffers from severe anxiety, seizures (he almost died in June 2019,) from the seizure, he also recently became vision impaired after a severe, extreme headache. He was treated for a migraine and had no CT-scan, even though he complained of not being able to see. He has had alot of bad stuff happen to him when he was younger and now his current health issues, giving him a reason to say he needs the pain pills. Can you guys help him?
sorry I took so long to answer but our website went down for a bit and I didn’t see your comment. The depression and anger can be due to the benzodiazapine addiction if he is binging and having to do without at times, and also they can contribute to seizures if they are dropped suddenly. We are an outpatient program that uses licensed counselors to do individualized counseling as well as using methadone or subutex to stabilize the person so they can work on their issues. We have a Medical Director who has been a psychiatrist for over 35 years and we work holistically with our clients. If he is unable to afford our services we refer to another program with indigence services for methadone. We look for the best options for the person given the circumstances they present to us.
