Treatment Information

The evaluation process is the first step for someone seeking treatment. Patients are screened and evaluated for appropriateness of treatment according to federal guidelines. Issues, problems and strengths will be identified and developed into a treatment plan. Each patient receives a medical evaluation. The medical department is responsible for dispensing methadone, as well as dealing with patient health issues. Professional medical care assures that medical conditions such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, venereal disease, cardio-vascular disease, HIV infection, and issues of prenatal care are diagnosed and managed early. Patients diagnosed with any of the above noted problems will be referred to outside agencies for care and follow-up of those conditions.

An initial urine screen serves to verify addiction. Ongoing random urine screens assure that progress is monitored. Urine screen results are one of the tools used in managing treatment and include urine specimens, blood samples, as well as alcohol sensor testing if indicated. The counselor and patient mutually agree upon recommendations for treatment. Patients are highly encouraged to participate in all phases of treatment. Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease that is both preventable and treatable. Recovery means becoming involved in healthy relationships, counseling, and the community. At Lubbock Lighthouse, all patients are required to participate in individual and group counseling. This will help you develop the skills necessary to remain drug free. You will learn to identify and correct problems and to work each day to prevent relapses.

      A lot depends on how long you have been abusing hydrocodone and your current level of use on whether methadone or Subutex is the most appropriate treatment for you. We are happy to assist you in deciding if you will call 806-744-1384 and ask to speak to a counselor. All are trained to guide you to the most appropriate treatment modality.

    I’m a severe alcoholic
    I need inpatient, but only have Humana health Care, via medicare

      I would suggest calling the number on the back of your Humana card to find what inpatient treatment programs in the area they authorize services for. Possibly Dovetree locally might accept it. Managed Care Center treats alcoholism but since they have the state indigency contract I am unsure if they take Humana insurance.
